  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces.
  • This world is also the overall capital of an interstellar government with the extra trade and prestige associated with that role.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • This is a temperate world, with a climate of pleasant, average temperatures, considered to be an ideal or near-ideal environment by many different sophont species.
  • It is a member of the Lair Protectorate in the Ueroez Subsector of Provence Sector.
  • This world-system hosts a Naval Base, usually associated with military starships, which may be located on or off-world.
  • Unusually enough for the capital of a star-spanning empire, several sections of the planet still boasted independence from central control only a few years ago.
  • From Imperial convention, this world is named Lair. Vargr scholars do not agree on a single name for the planet, which has been renamed several times in the course of millenia.
  • It is the capital of both the Lair Protectorate and the Vargr Extents.
  • It has also been known as Lloelldegh.

World Data[edit]

Lair is a temperate world. Average temperatures range from a warm 37° at the equator to a chilling -38° at the poles.

  • Between those two extremes lies a temperate belt of pleasant climes, untroubled by the fierce storms of the other latitudes.
  • Lair's hydrosphere, small in comparison to Terra's or Vland's, lessens both the chance and severity of rain.
  • Lair boasts 5 continents, and 10% of its surface is covered by polar ice caps.
  • The largest continent is named Safokunggaru, and is quite mountainous and straddles the equator. The Onggungira range casts its shadows on the cities of the southeastern coastlands, and includes some of Lair's few active volcanoes. At the far end of the continent lies the city of Aforrarrang, the capital of Lair.
  • Onfakh Gurz and Onfakh Dzae were once a single desert continent that has since broken apart through tectonic activity. Today the Ungodhi Desert of Onfakh Gurz is the largest desert on the planet, larger even than the Eggaekh Desert on Onfakh Dzae. The two large commercial centers of Idogoukh and Feksoudhi lie in the foothills of the continent's mountains.
  • Aerueko Fen extends northward from the planetary equator, and has terrain that spans jungle in the south to tundra in the north. Aerueko Fen is the most heavily populated continent; its Arrak Plains north of the Dzuengfuerr Jungle were the original home of the Vargr race. An inlet of the Gekersguekel Bay hosts the manufacturing center and former capital city of Gaenfouzoudo.
  • The rocky southern polar continent of Gaksadudha is covered with snow and ice, and boasts the Fothironggen mountain range.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Lair (Provence 2402 A8859B9-F): "Homeworld" and capital of the Vargr Extents.

  • Unlike the homeworlds of other races, Lair has never been accorded much status in the hearts and minds of the Vargr.
  • Lair is a Galanglic designation for the Vargr homeworld. It in fact has many different names among the various Vargr dialects. One reasonably well-known and somewhat widespread native name for Lair is Lloelldegh, a term meaning "homeworld" in several archaic Vargr dialects.

World Starport[edit]

Lair 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.
