Darrian is a high-population, pre-rich world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

Description (Planetology)

The surface of Darrian is divided by long, high mountain ranges into 5 basins.

  • Each basin is centred on a sea fed by rivers draining the surrounding country; thus, basins are the equivalent of continents.
  • Each basin also contains the remains of a "Flame Pit", once 2 km beds of glowing coals fed from below by geothermal action.
  • Around each Pit stands the remnant of an Orchard.
  • These trees growing here are circular but have a cross-section of about 5 square meters.
  • These trees have been used as homes.

History & Background (Dossier)

Darrian is the homeworld of the Darrians, a minor race of humaniti.

  • The Te-Zlodh name for this world is Daryen, which means "world" or "home."

Darrian is a small world with low gravity. Four major cities on Darrian are grav structures held aloft by grav modules. Rebhar was constructed as a mining platform for the mountainous rim of the Boyr Basin. Pororda, now a tourist centre in Rimb basin, was built as a sea farming centre. Kilulga, in the Abh basin, hangs in the upper atmosphere. Zehn Nyak in the Nyadh Basin is a migratory city, moving among 7 sites as the markets and seasons change.

  • Darrian is the technological centre of the Darrian Confederation, as Mire (Spinward Marches 0527) is the political center.
  • Scientists are in charge of the government and industry, paying careful attention to possible consequences before allowing changes.
  • There are restrictions on the export of any artifacts of pre-Maghiz culture that still remain on Darrian.
  • The military force of the Darrians is known as the Darrian Navy.
