Aeo is an agricultural, nonindustrial, and very rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

Description / Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Further measurements of the solar primary here in Aeo corrected the M9 V primary star, its smaller companion M5 VI and a nearby K8 VI secondary star.

Mainworld Data[edit]

Vargr inhabitants on Aeo are hardened by its 1.25 surface gravity, with increased Endurance and Strength. The mainworld’s diameter is larger than Earth, measured at 14,451km.

The pristine atmosphere is a gentle, Earthlike quality hovering at a stable 0.80 to 1.1 atmospheric pressure. With such a reduced pressure range, storms are gentler than otherwise expected. The most powerful hurricanes are just above tropical storms and are limited to the tropics only.

Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

The 80% hydrographic has allowed only one large landmass continent with a wide continental shelf sporting photic zone ecologies including a bioluminescent coral that glows at night, illuminating the darkened coral reef environment. Marine biologists have yet to successfully transplant the coral to controlled tanks or aquariums. Fishing of deep-sea schools by wooden schooners keeps safe the ecologies of the shelf environs.

History & Background / Dossier[edit]

Aeo (Knoellighz 1036) C968668-3 Ag Ga Lt O:1138 Ni Ri, despite its Low Tech Levels is one of the Infinity League’s most prime worlds for its Agricultural and Rich trade codes. Its long-term potentials are still projected at 1105 as hopeful well into the 1200s.

The Colony Government is headquartered at the Downport and has subordinate offices at rail terminal stations connected by telegraph lines stretching along the railroads. Owned by Ragerzesu as an experimental Agricultural and Rich resource world, Aeo is an attempt to compare low technology agrarian and resource procurement against Stellar technology (Egang) and Industrial Age technology (Dzourzzo). The Infinity League hopes to learn how to optimize all three brackets of technology.

World Starport[edit]

Aeo (Kn 1036) has a Class B Starport, a good quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and most kinds of repair, and construction of non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

  • Unintended, the Downport does have limited visitation visas for paying tourists wishing to travel to Aeo and enjoy the gentle planetary characteristics and pristine vistas. Sports and other attractions are by law kept tech-appropriate to the mainworld.

World Technology Level[edit]

Aeo (Kn 1036) possesses a Technology Level of TL–0.

  • These worlds often contain a Proto-Sophont species beginning to establish a nascent civilization and society.
  • This world is in its Alpha Period and has not yet been interfered with by a higher technology civilization.
  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Bodily communicative apparati, courier-runners, and smoke signals.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Bodily muscle.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Bodily locomotion, riding beasts, and litters or sedan chairs.
    • Water: Swimming, rafts, and canoes.
    • Air: Typically not available unless a bodily ability.
  • Though the average Tech Level of the mainworld is a Primitive 3, held there purposefully to keep citizens on task and without means of endangering the planet ecosystems, steam power and early railroads connect settlements to the League-backed C Downport. Muskets and ball cannons are the main weapons of the wooden sailing vessels and infantry of the military. The average citizen can still be counted on carrying at least a Blade or default to Infighting. Schools for the Vargr natural weaponry style can be found at rail terminus and the low-tech Startown.

World Government[edit]

Aeo (Kn 1036) has no central government for the world, an Anarchy. The largest governmental structure would be a family, tribe, or single clan. The largest group will be between 50 and 100 individuals, and there may be dozens to hundreds of them. This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.

World Law Level[edit]

Due to the large, territorial grazer beasts sporting long quills for defense and a propensity for charging Vargr trespassers, the Law rating of this Colony world has stabilized at 8, yet allows the average citizen the means of defending themselves against the raging and thunderquill brutes. This may initially seem to have a lower Law rating were it not for more extreme proscription of psionics, high-tech medicines, computer-based media and information and landings limited solely at the Downport to conduct business. Aeo, after 1116, is one of the more vocal anti-Zhodani psionics lobbyist worlds once the polity learns of the Zhodani Consulate interference with their mental instructions, (and suspected manipulations upon the Infinity League). Psionics possession is not banned outright, but all technology – especially Zhodani-make – is strictly and violently forbidden. Psionics use is illegal except in emergent situations where lives are at stake. Psions such as Vargr Wild Talents cropping up take up special oaths similar to the Hippocratic Oath to assuage the local hatred and hide their Talents save for dire need. Instruction of psionics is declared anathema and suspect of Zhodani tainting.

World Economy[edit]

Three planetoid belts are claimed by Ragerzesu mining corporations even as they keep fair distance from prospecting the mainworld by Colony charter. Belters can be found refueling at the system’s two Gas Giants, one of which has an extensive and brilliant ice rings that give off refractive, spectral rainbows when struck by the system’s solar primary at certain angles. Ragerzesu mining ops feature a refining, orbital platform that exports directly out-system and taxes for such are based on Ragerzesu Government mandates.

Historical Data[edit]

Three million Vargr settled Aeo as the Infinity League expanded Coreward. Knowing their advance settlements lacked support from the greater polity of the times, the colonists from Ragerzesu (Knoellighz 1038) built the C-rated Downport with future visits from the stars in mind. Then the colonists began expansion over the surface in large pack collections to settle specific terrains with goals in mind for returning to the attentions of the League’s later surveys. It was long-term investment thinking that later bore fruit as Aeo joined the Agricultural Faction of the League under Egang (Knoellighz 1034) and Dzourzzo (Knoellighz 1035).

Rebellion Era: 1116[edit]

It is after this year that the Infinity League suffers protests against Zhodani-taught psionics, psionic technologies sold to the polity and institutions where Zhodani ‘taint’ is believed to be manipulating the three offices of government. Aeo is one of these lobbyist worlds.

Hard Times Era: 1120[edit]

Aeo does not overly suffer much from degradation of technology and weathers the times well and manages to keep open its C-rated Starport to many vessels in need of trade for sustenance such as thunderquill meat, deep-sea fish, fruits and vegetable crops, (to the Zhodani ‘taint’ to Spinward).
