  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Garaag, 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.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

On this planet, the ornithopter is not a sporting vehicle; it is an essential tool in the struggle for survival. A desert world, Garaag’s only water collects at night, falling as snow.

  • Each night, Garaag’s ’thopter-equipped water-wingers scout for areas of considerable snowfall. The ’wingers descend, gather the snow, and return to their communities. Since the location of the snowstorms is not predictable, the people of Garaag (who number barely a third of the planet’s pre-war population) depend upon the water-wingers for their survival.
