History and background[edit]

Amshu has never expanded beyond the small trading enclave that surrounds the starport, the 6,000 or so inhabitants live in the single settlement at Amshu Port and are almost exclusively concerned with its smooth operation.

The port is the only source of fuel for traffic using the Dagudashaag Main. The majority of the surface water is locked into the polar ice caps and the extreme weather make wilderness refueling hazardous.
