Dawn is a nonindustrial, oceanic water world.

  • It is covered with very deep oceans with less than 1% of its land above sea level.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 1% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Zeng Subsector of Deneb Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Dawn, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

This world has a nearby Regency Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Dawn is a failed gas giant with four moons, almost big enough to qualify as a true panthalassic world that features startlingly deep oceans, no land masses at all, a strong 1.7 G gravity and an exotic oxygen-rich atmosphere.

Dawn gets its name from its spectacular fluorescent sunrises and sunsets, caused by the argon and neon atmospheric taint. No land at all breaks Dawn's watery surface.

Point of Interest: The Makranii (Ship Cities) of Dawn[edit]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Dawn Orbital Highport is a large trade and warehousing center, while Dawn Downport is a floating starport, startown and naval base, with lifters that enable it to reach orbit in case of emergency.

Since colonization, two entirely different cultures have developed; some 170,000 people inhabit the orbital starport, while the other 250,000 live as nomads on the planet in thousands of free-floating Makranii, or ship-cities. Few official ties exist between the two cultures.
