Ya'uiya-ko has both an unbreathably very thin atmosphere and no surface water which makes habitation by sophonts difficult. The environment does not allow agricultural production to feed the population in the tens of millions of sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Sapphyre Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Ya'uiya-ko, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdom of a marquis. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships. 100% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan.

  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.

History and background[edit]

First settled in the Aohalai/Oakhtai'yal migrations of the Long Night, Ya'uiya-ko was a major staging post for Aslan expeditions deeper into Dagudashaag. Clan vessels found a world which, though marginally habitable at best, has a valuable natural resource. Ya'uiya-ko is circled by the Ftya Khuika or Sable Prowlers, several large carbonaceous ice asteroids which are unusually rich in deuterium and rare carbon isotopes, making them a prime source of high-grade fusion fuel.

Centuries of mining work by the deutice prospectors has begun to break up the Prowlers into dark ring of debris circling the planet. However ice supplies seem sufficient for many hundreds of years.

Ahriy who have been able to assert territorial claims over part of the Prowlers have enjoyed considerable wealth, but that wealth has not always filtered down to the ground size ahriy. This has resulted in severe social strains, and the fracturing of the two founder clans into at least a dozen bickering sub-clans. Fteirle cultural strictures have prevented a descent in to anarchy, but duels, assassinations, and the ousting of unproductive or complacent space side ahriy are very common.

The situation is complicated by the presence of the Imperial Naval Base. Recent Imperial Navy plans to established a high-grade fuel-processing facility in orbit around the innermost gas giant threaten to disrupt the entire system economy. The expansion of the surface installation, and the immigration of some 5,000 additional civilian support personnel, including at least a thousand Medurma Allkash, have introduced even greater tensions.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Ya'uiya-ko, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport[edit]

Ya'uiya-ko 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.
