Walston is a low-population world with a population of less than 10,000 sophonts in size.


  • Walston is sometimes spelled "Waltson."

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Walston's primary is named Albin's Star, while the system's two small gas giants are named Insive and Greenish. The system also contains five rocky bodies in fairly standard orbits. Walston itself has a cool climate and a thin oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere tainted by mild pollutant affecting low-elevation areas. The seas of Walston are home to a wide variety of life.

History and background[edit]

Walston's starport and the relatively hospitable environment makes it a popular stopover point on the Bowman Arm. The planet's subsistence-based economy depends largely on aquaculture and more conventional agriculture.

The only inhabited region of the planet is Settlement Island, which includes the capital at Central Lake. Approximately 90% of Walston's population are Vargr who settled after the Fourth Frontier War, but the government is ruled by a human elite and the Vargr are treated as distinctly second-class citizens.

World Starport[edit]

Walston has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class-C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World Technology Level[edit]

Walston possesses a Technology Level of TL-8.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: fiber optics, improved telephones, and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: improved geothermal and improved batteries.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: advanced automobiles.
    • Water: triphibians and early artificial gills.
    • Air: improved helicopters and hypersonic jets.
    • Space: space shuttles, early space stations, and improved interplanetary spacecraft.
