Era: New Era

Weiss is a non-industrial world, with a small but stable population, but lacks the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors. The governance of this world is from Glisten (Spinward Marches 2036). It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Glisten Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. 40% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan.


  • It was originally colonized by a group from the Sword Worlds.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The planet itself is fairly unpleasant, with most of the hydrographic percentage tied up in the two large icecaps. Individual settlements outside the spaceport tend to cluster around a pressurized greenhouse. Most surface travel is by tracked vehicle.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Population about 72,000. Colonized following the Third Frontier War in 990 by a group of Sword Worlds dissidents. Recent problems have stemmed from the fact that the inhabitants have more sympathy for the Sword Worlds their ancestors left than for the Imperium.

Glisten (Spinward Marches 2036) pre-emptively assumed control of the planet in 1104, and tension has remained high since. The local language is a form of Germanic rather than Anglic, and persons addressing the inhabitants in Anglic outside the controlled spaceport district are likely to find trouble.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Weiss , as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Weiss has an excellent quality starport.

  • A Class-A Starport Facility has very well developed shipyards and is capable of producing first rate starships.
  • 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. Sometimes multiple ports of each type.
