Answerin is a high-population world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Answerin culture holds fear of any kind to be a disease of the mind, and Answerin's psychiatrists have effective techniques for eradicating all anxiety from the populace. The principal diagnostic tool for this is a portable device which detects anxiety, by analyzing thoughts and body functions. The device's use borders too closely on psionic practices to allow it free export to the rest of the Imperium, but illegal copies are sometimes smuggled out.

  • When necessary, natives of Answerin can produce an adrenalin reaction in their bodies, which gives them temporary superhuman strength and dexterity. Mercenaries from Answerin command premium prices for service.
  • The Restored Vilani Empire is using Answerin mercenaries in increasing numbers to augment elite ships' troops and jump troops units.
