Acorn (Di 2835) is a nonindustrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • 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.
  • This dangerous world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors.
  • This a "high technology" world with technology achievements at, near, or over technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Khulam Subsector of Diaspora Sector in the Domain of Sol.
  • The world has a large population of Chirpers.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

On Acorn, chirpers have long been a regular feature of the community. They live in a combination hydroponics park/preserve.

Hard Times: When this tiny planet's service grid was knocked out in 1119 by a terrorist attack, the locals realized that the new life-support margins did not permit all of the chirpers to be saved. Food shortages compelled the community to use the chirper carcasses as meat. Now, the community is debating whether or not the surviving chirpers should be used to reduce the agricultural demands on the hydroponics farms.

These ghastly events underscore an important point: although Imperial decree and long tradition recognizes Chirpers as sentient, there is a tendency among the major races to see these timid beings as only clever pets. As Hard Times brought strife and death to regressing worlds, this assessment of chirpers dropped yet another notch. Now, once compassionate people conveniently forget that Chirpers are sentient, and treat them as livestock. No doubt, word of this has inflamed Droyne emotions throughout the sector. Acorn's humans do not welcome questions from outsiders about their diminished chirper population.
