History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Gram was the first of the Sword Worlds to be settled. The world was sufficiently habitable to allow the colonists to establish a home and then spread out to what became the other Sword Worlds as their numbers grew. For this reason the people of Gram have always considered themselves the original and best Sword Worlders, and of course the rightful leaders of the Confederation.

  • Gram has been at least the nominal capital of the Confederation since 852.

World Starport[edit]

Gram has an excellent quality starport.

  • A Class-A Starport Facility has very well developed shipyards and is capable of producing first rate starships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Sometimes multiple ports of each type.
  • Gram produces most of the warships used throughout the Confederation. Conditions in Gram's industrial cities are rather grim, with unrest common among the workers.

World Technology Level[edit]

Gram possesses a Technology Level of TL-12 or TL-C in Hexadecimal Notation.

World Government[edit]

Gram has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.

Historical Data[edit]

History-Milieu: New Era: Gram has been largely ambivalent towards the Regency. The world's lower classes had been miserable under Sword World rule, and trade with the Regency has brought them a measure of prosperity. Unlike most other violence stricken Sword Worlds, resistance to occupation has not come from the grassroots, as on Sacnoth, but from disaffected parts of the upper and middle classes, largely students and intellectuals. Gram's government is strongly divided between pro and anti-Regency factions, and intercommunal fighting has been a problem.

The Representative Authority is a Ruler, King Albrecht VII who (along with his Queen, Ingrid) represents the place and fills the executive and judicial roles. Several councils fulfill the role of the legislative arm.

The Royal Shipyards are the only place in the Sword Worlds which can construct jump drives. In addition to the normal defenses, the planet is defended by a number of TL-12 Meson gun planetary defense sites (obtained from Sacnoth). They are EM Masked, with nuclear dampers and meson screens. The cities of Gram are also protected by nuclear dampers and meson screens.
