Details / Specifications
The Amaric Shoal is an irregularly shaped astrographic region measuring approximately 9 parsecs coreward-rimward by 10 parsecs spinward-trailing and affecting an area covering approximately 27 parsecs of space. Aspects of spacetime and jump physics appear to function differently within its general boundaries. It is not visible to the naked eye or to most conventional sensors.
The Amaric Shoal bears striking similarities to the Harmal Strange and Unstable Space regions lying within Halcyon and Far Home Sectors. The University of Tal Varisa's astrophysical survey programs (applying a small degree of comprehension gained through the study of those local anomalies) have allowed the shoal to be detected and charted by indirect observation methods. Studies of the Amaric Shoal region are ongoing, though no definitive conclusions have yet been reached concerning its nature.
- A Jump-1 ship will not be able to enter jumpspace at all in this region; any vessel attempting to do so will suffer drive damage, as well as damage to its physical structure.
- A Jump-2 capable vessel should be able to enter jump within the shoal. It will function as though performing a Jump-2 but will only cover one parsec before being dropped back into normal space. Fuel consumption during the jump is at normal rates for the drive.
