  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Suleiman Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector in the Domain of Sol.
  • Biggles is a protectorate of Ascalon (Solomani Rim 1207).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Biggles is a high-population Imperial world with one small moon, located in the Azaremiid Cluster within Suleiman Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Biggles is a protectorate of Ascalon (Solomani Rim 1207). While this situation was to last only until the planetary populace could construct a working government of its own, Ascalon has deliberately intervened on several occasions to ensure that this does not happen.
