Other Data[edit]

Bangwe's entire population lives on a single small chain of islands near the downport. The starport itself is a highly informal affair: a group of beacons ringing a shallow lagoon, with ships making a "soft" landing in the water. The locals subsist on fishing and handicrafts, and are quite content with their lot. In antebellum times the world attracted sportsmen from across Deneb, and locals make additional income by hiring themselves out to visiting RQS crews as guides and outfitters. Handmade, wooden catamarans and outriggers are the most popular form of transport, and some of these are exported to worlds safeside for exorbitant prices.

Bangwe is one of three worlds chosen as wildside trade terminals, and negotiations are underway to expand the starport into a full facility for trade and colonization. The locals are reluctant to fully open up their world to contact, and are reportedly driving a hard bargain, in the form of higher recompense from the Regency government, before they will consent to any kind of widescale development.
