History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Ugirunnir (Mendan 0919) is a large, cold world that attracted many Vargr settlers because of their ability to handle the world's cold weather better than most Humans. During the reign of the Second Empire of Gashikan, it became a haven for escaped Vargr, and as word got around, many Vargr looking for a place free of Human influence chose Ugirunnir. The world is formed into a patchwork of communities, each self-governed in the way that seems best to them. As a result there is little cooperation, but there is also little conflict.

Vargr corsairs are not openly welcomed, as most would rather avoid being branded corsair supporters (unlike those on Oukh Ull). Since the Julian Protectorate absorbed the Commonwealth of Mendan, there has been an increase in trade through the world that has caused some re-alignment of negative views towards Humans.

World Starport[edit]

Ugirunnir 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.
