Alell is a rich world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the 100's of millions, which makes it too urbanized to make an agricultural world. This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Alell, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a baronet, and the feifdoms of a baron, and a viscount. All four are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Alell is 6,400 kilometers in diameter, with a standard atmosphere and approximately 70% of its surface covered with oceans of water.

Alell retains its atmosphere and water thanks to a density that is far higher than scientists thought possible for such a small planet. Whatever the reason, the result is a very pleasant world with reasonable gravity, clean air, fertile soil, and warm shallow seas lined by scores of huge vacation resorts.

Alell is a member of the Spinward Main. It is part of the Regina Cluster.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Alell has a population numbering 203 million as of the census of 1100. Its government is an impersonal bureaucracy. The world, when first colonized, was under the authoritarian rule of the colonization ship captain, and his descendants have continued to rule under the title Captain. The government, responsible to this Captain, provides many necessary functions, but these functions seem to be performed more for the overall good of the world (and the government) than for the individual citizens. The law level on Alell is extremely restrictive and no weapons of any sort are allowed in the possession of individuals. Alell's tech level is A, about average for the interstellar community

Alell Down Starport is classified as type B, providing good quality facilities, with some capacity for ship repair and the construction of interplanetary craft. A Travellers' Aid Society hotel and office is located just outside the starport boundary. Refined fuel is available at Cr500 per ton; unrefined fuel is available at Cr100 per ton.

Alell Down's companion facilities, Alell Orbital Starport, provide services, refueling, and maintenance for unstreamlined ships calling on the world.

In addition to Alell Startown, other major settlements on Alell include Dali, Ekun Town, Imuku, and Agadip.

Alell is a constitutional monarchy under Captain Roger XXII, a direct descendant of the captain of the original colony ship, but the Alell Tourist Authority has a disproportionate amount of influence, and Makhidkarun recently bought a 24% share in the ATA. Alell is governed by an Impersonal Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy dictates government policy and its execution. Government leadership is reduced to little more than figureheads and does not select the bureaucracy leadership or its members.

Imperial High / Landed Nobility[edit]

Alell, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of four members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

Points of interest[edit]

Barcelona[edit]

Starport bar with a slightly carnival feel. Cocktails with imported real fruit are house specialty.

Camden Lock[edit]

Another starport bar. Less camp than Barcelona. Regulars visitors who have already been to Barcelona often prefer it.

"Med Central"[edit]

Highport medical facility (owned and operated by First Medical LIC). This is a general hospital with an extensive xenobiology section. It provides medical and quarantine services to the starport.

Colosseum[edit]

Large concert hall in the highport with a capacity of over 5000 seats. Great expense was taken to get the acoustics of the hall just right. Behind the stage is a three story safety-filtered viewport which can be shuttered or reveal space. One of the specialties of the Colosseum (and a tourist draw) is a live orchestral performance coinciding with sunrise over Alell with fresh spring scents released into the air at appropriate points. When not in use for public performances the hall is sometimes used as a sound recording stage for some of Naasirka Entertainment's more elaborate productions.
