History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Before this world was declared a red zone, naive off-worlders would visit Haden, only to disappear from the island beaches with shocking regularity. Only a shred of clothing or other belongings near tell-tale tarmo marks on the beach would testify to their fate. The local sea captains forbade further landings and dismantled the rudimentary starport. They requested the Travellers' Aid Society to classify the world a red zone.

A few hundred sea-faring ship captains rule the three million inhabitants of Haden's islands. This council of sea captains is the only constituted authority on the planet. They are also the only ones who can fight off the Tarmo, a savage deep-sea creature that often lurks near beaches, attacking beach walkers, swimmers, and boats.When they are away at sea the islands are without leadership. Orderly behavior is necessary to counteract the threats of this environment, so even when the captains are away at sea, society remains organized and structured.

The primary industry for this world is the hunting of the Gatuf (a local sea creature) for its valuable oil. This is the world's prime source of fuel. Like all else on Haden it is under the tight control of the council of sea captains.

World Population (P)[edit]

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

  • This is a Nonindustrial World, too small to support the complete chain of production of most goods from start to finish.
  • Most examples of this type are capable of resource extraction but lack an industrial base, in particular factories, to make use of the resources.
  • This world has a population of approximately 3,000,000 sophonts.

World Demographics[edit]

These positions are inherited by member of the group or their family members. The organization may be monarchy, with titles passed to family members. Or a plutocracy where inheritance of the family fortune includes government position. Or the organization may be more typical organization with positions of power inherited.

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.
