541-668 is a poor, nonindustrial hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • This a "forbidden" world designated as a Red Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that make it extremely dangerous to visitors. Everyone is forbidden to travel here.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • A Prison World, exile camp, or prison camp for criminals or other exiles is located upon this world in addition to other points of interest.
  • It is a member of the Solomani Confederation in the Akuusir Subsector of Dark Nebula Sector.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

The planet is a poor hellworld with a thin, tainted atmosphere.

  • The world is far enough from the Aslan-Solomani border not to occasion diplomatic comment, though the Aslan despise such expedients as prison worlds and are aware that some (or most) of the exiles are political prisoners.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Known by no other name than its star-chart designation, 2601 is the Solomani Confederation prison world for Dark Nebula Sector.

  • No technological development is permitted to the eight million prisoners there.
  • It is administered out of Calcutta (Reaver's Deep 2540).
