Uaam 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 Argi Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.

This is the homeworld to Jala'Lak, a Minor Race.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Uaam is divided into two continents. One polar and desolate, the other sparsely populated and covered with jungles and thick rain forests. The deserted eastern side of the continent holds several vast, mostly automated open-cast mines. There are very high quality radioactives to be found in the rock under the seabed, and a number of deep sea mining installations have been developed specifically to mine them.

Native Sophont: Jala'Lak[edit]

The southwestern jungles support the Jala'Lak; an indigenous native race, which is subject to some controversy. The Jala’Lak are peaceful and live in harmony with the jungle, they are a race of large primates. The forests they live in are fill with temples, apparently to their various gods and the Free University of Ushra maintains a base there in order to better study this fascinating neolithic race. The Jala'Lak can also be found on Giirakh (Dagudashaag 0325) but for an as yet inexplicable reason, their temper is vastly different - much more savage, even cannibalistic. Clearly they are not native to Giirakh and consequently are the subject of much debate.
