Fulacin supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. This world contains an archaeological site with artifacts suspected to be from the now-vanished Ancients. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Rhylanor Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Fulacin, 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.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Fulacin is a member of the Spinward Main.

Fulacin is a large, unexplored world, and its plains and deserts abound in wildlife.

Fulacin's most noted feature is its standard density tainted atmosphere. Widespread taint in the form of heavy metal dust and oxides means that the atmosphere is unbreathable without a filter mask. The dust causes a wide variety of respiratory illnesses, and can cause carcinoma within years of exposure. This metal dust has also made Fulacin an an ideal location for use of MagnetoDynamics's several patents dealing with recovery of metal from atmospheric and oceanic suspension.

Native Lifeforms: Fauna & Flora[edit]

Fulacin is well known for several of its native species:

  • Fulacinian Groat: Fulacin is notable as the native world of the Groat, an herbivore prized for its shaggy hair and meat.
  • Fulacinian Snow Cat, a carnivore and potentially agressive creature.
  • Fulacinian Trapper, an octopodal carnivore/trapper, known for its aggressive behavior.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The world is under the control of MagnetoDynamics through an Imperial charter for development.

World Starport[edit]

Fulacin has a Class A Starport, an excellent quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and other kinds of repair, and construction of both starships and non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

Though otherwise unimportant, Fulacin's excellent A–class starport was constructed to facilitate access to Rhylanor (Spinward Marches 2716), the subsector capital. The starport features ship construction and repair facilities, a Travellers' Aid Society hostel, and overhaul equipment.

Historical Data[edit]

History-Era: Milieu 1120: In 1105 the discovery of a secret Zhodani base forced the Imperium to revoke the MagnetoDynamics charter and launch a major investigation into the activities of the company. The charter for the development of Fulacin was granted to Spinward Development.

Other Data: In 1118, as part of the increased trust and cooperation between the Zhodani Consulate and the Imperium, the Zhodani revealed that they had established a secret base on Fulacin. It was opened up and converted into a state-of-the-art interactive museum that shows the history of the Frontier Wars from the Zhodani viewpoint. It is required visiting for any student of Frontier War history, and draws tourists from all over the Marches.

The museum contains a flame sculpture memorial to the Imperial and Zhodani undercover agents who died during the Frontier War period, which officially ended when Emperor Strephon ratified the Treaty of Quar on 000-1110.
