Winston is an agricultural garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to incrementally rise barring outside forces.
  • It is a nonindustrial, pre-rich world still lacking adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.
  • 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 Sword Worlds Confederation in the Querion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It is one of the Entropic Worlds and historically, both the Darrian and Sword Worlds confederations have laid claim to the system. Winston was a thinly colonized Darrian world before being taken by the Sword Worlds during the Fourth Frontier War. The Imperium has generally backed Darrian claims while the Zhodani Consulate has backed the Sword Worlds claim. In 1105 Winston was a Sword Worlds holding.

History-Era: Milieu 1120[edit]

Throughout the Fifth Frontier War the Sword Worlds' Joyeuse Fleet patrolled Winston as part of the larger Darrian Campaign. When the Joyeuse Fleet was driven off by Imperial forces, the Darrians seized Winston and the armistice was arranged before the Sword Worlds could retake the system.

Winston is a balkanized world that has lost a great deal of its population and technology in repeated fighting between the Darrians and the Sword Worlds. Some nations on Winston remain sympathetic to the Sword Worlds, but most are loyal to Darrian.
