Astrography & Planetology[edit]

The planet is an average sized world with a thin atmosphere; 70% of its surface is covered by water. The five major continents include a varied, but generally rugged terrain which has further encouraged the world's characteristic balkanization. [2]

In addition to Aramanx Startown, other major settlements on Aramanx include Ginsberg, Kirshush, Uurii Town, Bachburg, Udula, and Rilagum.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Aramanx was colonized in the 400s by settlers from Junidy (Spinward Marches 3202). The initial colonists were a utopian group who attempted to eliminate warfare by returning man to a simpler state of existence. The technology required to construct fusion power plants, gravitic drives, and nuclear bombs was renounced. leaving the colonists at TL–6.

As later generations spread out across the planet, schisms developed and war was reintroduced: gradually, under the pressures of nationalism, all of the old beliefs died except for the traditional hostility to new technology. Now even that is fading as offworld contact begins to make high technology the price of national survival, although a large segment of the population in every nation remains hostile to the new ways (and to the off worlders who bring them). [2]

Akerut has offices and facilities at the starport.

In 1105 Oberlindes Lines was in the process of transferring their main offices from Paya (Spinward Marches 2509). [3]

Aramanx was a source of bitter contention between antebellum period megacorporations Ling-Standard Products and Sternmetal Horizons. Each company backed a particular faction that then proceeded to wage a civil war in the period immediately before the beginning of the Fifth Frontier War. The conflict was temporarily postponed by the Zhodani, and then again by Vargr invasions of 1118-19, but resumed in 1122.

The Collapse saw the corporations withdraw their support, and the previously Ling Standard backed nation of Lanax seized the initiative and overwhelm its opposition. Aramanx was originally settled by pacifists from Deneb Sector, and the world has reverted back to its original plan; weapons of any kind are banned from the surface.[4]

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

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