Zaamish is a nonindustrial fluid world.

  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Laraa Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Zaamish is a large cold world with an exotic atmosphere.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

During the First Imperium this world was known as Uugmu Khimad.

It is home to approximately three million people who live in a huge orbital habitat known locally as "Outpost".

LifeTech Corporation sponsors the Outbound Run, a sporting event that takes place in the system and is broadly popular across the Subsector.

Point of Interest: Illicit Arms Trade[edit]

The local orbital habitat is a free port: there are very few trade laws, and anything can be bought or sold.

  • The IISS keeps a close eye on commodities controlled under Imperial law.
  • While certain areas of the habitat have strict weapons restrictions (such as the powerplant) most other areas are free fire zones.
  • An individuals status is measured by the amount of protection they can afford.
  • While working as a body guard is dangerous it earns good money.
