Era: New Era

Caloran is an agricultural world with an ideal environment for producing food from plants, animals, or other forms. The system supports a small stable population, but lacks the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Federation of Arden in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This world is an Interface world, with a quarantine inspection facility for all ships.


Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The dense atmosphere is filled with a number of different airborne microorganisms which causes respiratory illnesses in about half of those exposed.

  • The main export is the Vatabell, a local tuber which is both nutritious and tasty. A close second is Vatabell Distillate, a liquor brewed from the vatabell.
