Drya is a water world with 90% or more of its surface covered in an ocean of water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Drya, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Vliirpi.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Drya is a member of the Dagudashaag Main.

Drya is a large water world orbiting a pleasant yellow star. Temperatures are uniformly low, averaging around -10°C. Although there is very little dry land the world has large, semi-permanent icecaps. During the warmer summers these begin to break up, giving a constant danger of icebergs. The oceans average over three kilometers deep, although some areas are far shallower and others are much deeper. The weather on Drya tends to be violent, as there are no large landmasses to stop the high·speed winds or huge tsunami. The strong winds make air travel dangerous: the main forms of transport are boats and submersibles.
