  • Has a large Droyne population.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Spirelle had a diameter of 11,630 km, standard oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere, 60% surface water, and a warm climate. The most populated parts of Spirelle consists of low-lying swampy islands and small land masses.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The planet has a population of 723 million (of which 95 million are Droyne). The population is governed by a representative democracy, a medium law level, and a tech level of 8. The bulk of the population are easy-going and friendly, dispersed in small cities across the globe. Main sources of income are fish-farming, bulk rice and other damp-condition cereal cultivation, and mineral extraction.

Spirelle was settled around -7000 by the crew of a misjumped Droyne ship from Andor who increased in number until they reached a population of 130 million. By the late 1st Century, the population had remained steady for more than 2000 years. Relations with the various interstellar states that arose around them (the Sindalian Empire, the Old Darrians, the Sacnoth Dominate and the Sword Worlds of the Five States Era) remained remote; the Spirellans were unaggressive, seemed to have no interest in trade, and had no starships of their own despite a tech level of around 10.

This changed in 98 when merchant adventurer Annabel Rorise's ship broke down and had to make an emergency landing on Spirrelle. During the two years she was stuck on the world, she discovered that the Droyne hierarchs were interested in trade, but so slow and cautious that former attempts to establish trade with them had been abandoned before they bore fruit. Keeping this information to herself, she established a monopoly of trade with Spirelle and went on to found a powerful trading company and a merchant family that survive to this day.

Humans have settled in out-of-the-way parts of Spirelle and have slowly grown in number. In the last century or so, they have begun squeezing the Droyne, whose numbers have declined from 130 million to 95 million in that time.
