Tabric is a nonindustrial water world, which has 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water.

  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • 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 Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Utt Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Warran-Tabric System[edit]

The primary is Warran, an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 5.34 Sols, a mass of 1.46 Sols, and a diameter of 2.115 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (IV) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world – orbital position (II) is empty. (V) Tabric orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (VI) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VII) a dense atmosphere bigworld, (VIII) a ringed very large gas giant, (IX) a dense rocky planetoid belt, and (X) a ringed large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(V) Tabric[edit]

(V) Tabric is designated the mainworld. It orbits Warran at a mean distance of 3.92 AU (586.4 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 6 years 155 days and a rotation period of 28.5 hours. The axial tilt is 17 degrees. Tabric has a diameter of 14,895 km, a density of 5.49 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.16 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 2.08 bar and a composition of 85% nitrogen, 14% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 99.7% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: 12°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite[edit]

Tabric retains a single natural satellite, an exotic atmosphere stormworld named Usban:

(Va) Usban (UWP G6A1266-8, orbiting at 20 Diameters/300,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 697 million km², Water surface area: 676 million km², Land surface area: 21 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Tabric has extensive, abundant native life, with organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions power the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Tabric has a good quality starport.

  • A Class B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • 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. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.

World technology level[edit]

Tabric possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft (System Craft), and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World government[edit]

Tabric has a Self-Perpetuating Oligarchy government.

  • It is a government by a restricted minority, with little or no input from the masses.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
