Mainworld Data[edit]

Apge (Core 0402) is a world 11,184 kilometers in diameter, with eighty percent of its surface area covered by land. Because of the lack of water, nearly all of the approximately 185,000 residents live grouped together in densely packed villages around one of the six major waterways. In addition to the lack of water, Apge suffers from an atmosphere that is slightly tainted with sulfur.

  • Apge is tidally locked to its primary, Aseladar. [2]

World Technology Level[edit]

The high technology rating in the world's UWP is derived from the civilization's use of the Ancient technology available to them. In addition to the cavern and the scepter, the town also has what appears to be a universal duplicator. They can take any non-living item that is smaller than a meter cubed, put it into the machine, and it will be duplicated perfectly. This process takes between six and thirty-six weeks. The natives tend to pray over the device during that time, asking their god to perform the "miracle". The machine also absorbs a large quantity of raw material from the landscape (roughly 10 times the size of the item being duplicated) around the village. The duplicator has apparent safeguards that prevent it from using living creatures as it raw material source.

World Government[edit]

Apge is a member of the Imperium, and serves as the Subsector capital.

  • Imperial Scouts have classified this world has having a Feudal Technocracy which isn't strictly true. However, it is as close as one can get to the truth when attempting to pigeonhole this planet's strange government.
  • The leader of the world's main civilization is selected in a unique manner. Their law states that the one who can psionically remove the Scepter of Power from its cavern will be ruler for life. The scepter is actually an Ancient device, and the cavern is protected by a security system of Ancient origins. Some unseen force immediately kills any living creature entering the cavern.

World Military[edit]

The system hosts an IISS X-boat way station.
