Nguma is a nonindustrial world, that requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.

  • In a technological universe, societies without industrial capability generally suffer as nearly all manufactured and high tech goods must be brought in at significant cost.
  • 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 the Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

This inhospitable world has become an important juncture with ships passing into the heart of Ushra from Arnakhish Subsector only because of the medically hostile nature of Lemuria (Dagudashaag 1612). The class A starport is an orbital facility with a subsidiary class C port on the surface.

World Data[edit]

Nguma is a large unusual world which exhibits a large orbital eccentricity due to the gravitational effect of the central star’s companion. The dense atmosphere is ellipsoid with a variation of two atmospheres between the less dense polar regions and the equator. There is free-standing water only in the higher latitudes during the winter or the high altitudes of the polar regions during the short but intense summers. Much of the equatorial regions remain unexplored.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

  • During the Long Night this world was named Mankhe.
