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


This world's population and technological base were damaged in the Empress Wave. Since 1045, the Spike Society has focused its resources on rebuilding this world; as of 1097, the rebuild has been declared a success and halted. Its resources are now heavily taxed to help rebuild Core Spike and Tip Spike.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

Back Spike has a low law level. There are few laws, covering only important areas.

For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate. Machine guns, other automatic weapons, portable energy weapons, and other military weapons, body pistols, explosives, and poison gas are typically regulated or prohibited.
