Gzorraeth is a nonindustrial desert hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • This world has no free-standing water.
  • 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 Non-Aligned world dominated by Vargr sophonts located in the Khouth Subsector of Corridor Sector.
  • In the initial surveys, this world was named Shadga Ishgaa.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 7,200km and 8,800km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.4G and 0.57G. The horizon will appear about 4km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 1.50 to 2.49 atmospheres. While a Dense Atmosphere requires no survival gear this atmosphere also contains an unusual taint such as such as disease, a hazardous gas mix, pollutants, or sulfur compounds which requires the use of a Filter Mask. Some taints may require more protective equipment. TL–3 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has no free-standing water or ice on the surface. Wilderness refueling isn't possible on this world. Water for the inhabitants needs to be imported and extensively recycled. These worlds are classified Desert World or a Hell World depending on their atmosphere.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Gzorraeth is owned by Ulroudzoe Mining, a major corporation based within the Dzarrgh Federate. Ulroudzoe established Gzorraeth as its first extra-Federate mining operation. The world has become Ulroudzoe's chief supplier of radioactives.

Imperial authorities suspect Ulroudzoe of manufacturing fission warheads on Gzorraeth and selling them to corsairs. Although the claim has never been validated, many feel that destruction of the Ulroudzoe facilities on Gzorraeth would deal the illicit Vargr arms trade a major blow.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

This world 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.

World Population (P)[edit]

This world has a population of 1,000 to 9,999 sophonts (thousands).

  • On most worlds, this population would be too low to sustain itself without a little outside assistance.
  • This may represent the home base of a sizable but mostly transient population such as the base of a major starship expedition, the last generation of a dying colony, the first generation of a new colony, or a large outpost that will probably evolve into a colony if not stopped.

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

World Government (G)[edit]

This world is governed by a Corporate Polity with a single corporation with a typical corporate structure as a government. A company town, or world. The typical corporate run world usually has a single purpose. Examples include mining, agriculture, or other kinds of resource extraction. But rather than a simple base of operations, there are facilities for housing workers and their families including hospitals, schools, and other infrastructure. How, or if, the children of the workers are incorporated into the workforce varies with companies. The corporation running the world may be a subsidiary of a larger interstellar corporation.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

This world has no law in practice. It is an Anarchy. On many worlds, this by itself justifies an Amber Zone advisory. There are few laws, covering only important areas. There may be few or no law enforcement officers, the expectation is citizens will bring law breakers to the attention of the Judicial system. Legal proceedings will be fast, with few people involved. For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate.

World Technology Level (TL)[edit]

This world possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft (System Craft), and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

During the late stages of the Rebellion, a pre-emptive strike was enacted upon this facility by a squadron of close escorts hailing from the Deneb 61st Fleet. So effective was the strike that Vargr corsair activity was literally halved following the assault. Gzorraeth's economy and infrastructure were so devastated that the government collapsed and the world fell into turmoil.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

It turned out to be a blessing in disguise. When Virus-infected ships attacked the system, the defunct (not to mention decidedly low-tech) computer system could not be infected. Nevertheless, aerial bombardment of the planet by Vampire ships did result in the deaths of several thousand Vargr.

Since their near destruction at the hands of two enemies, the surviving population has gradually recovered. The world's B class starport is a rare commodity in the region, and both free traders and Vampire Fleets of various kinds patronize the starport for routine maintenance. The world has a large PAD network tipped with locally manufactured nuclear warheads, and this has prevented anyone from seizing the world for themselves. The surviving ranking Ulroudzoe official was also ordained in the Church of the Chosen Ones, but to his credit this has been used to unify the world under the benevolent rule of a secular dictator rather than the stifling liturgical governance that the Church has become infamous for. By his strict, principled example the world has known only wise and prudent leadership ever since his death.
