Erice is a poor, preindustrial world.

  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • This is a "Puzzle" world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor.
  • It is a member of the Solomani Confederation in the Iselle Subsector of Ustral Quadrant Sector.
  • This world-system hosts a Military Base, usually associated with military ground forces, which may be located on or off-world.
