Shionthy is a ring of many small worldlets (an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and are both non-agricultural and lightly industrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • They require extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • The worldlets are, for the most part, unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • These worldlets are working towards being an industrial world but lack adequate resources to do so. This world contains an archaeological site with artifacts suspected to be from the now-vanished Ancients. This world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Imperial member system interdicted because of the extreme danger to traffic posed by the presence of small anti-matter particles. Contact with even a microscopic particle can cause severe damage.

System Data[edit]

The large belt dominating this system is believed by many authorities to be the result of the destruction of a large world by the Ancients. The anti-matter is believed to be the instrument of destruction.

  • Before interdiction, Shionthy had already acquired a population of belters collecting anti-matter fragments, worth several million credits per gram. Imperial law allows established populations to remain in a system after interdiction, and despite periodic disasters, the population has grown to an estimated 70 million. The inhabitants sell their finds to the Imperium, which, despite the humanitarian concerns which led to interdiction, finds the present arrangement too valuable to abandon.
