Era: New Era

Windsor is a rich, nonindustrial world.

  • 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 has high-grade living conditions and life on this world is much admired by off-worlders. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Glisten Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. 10% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Windsor orbits the gas giant Vintii, which is itself unusual in being very close to the system's primary, a K9 star. Vintii is itself almost a brown dwarf, and emits enough heat to give Windsor a hot climate.

Windsor has a dense oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere.
