Jone has a tainted, unbreatheable atmosphere and little available surface water. The system supports a population between 10 million and 100 million. This world designated as an Amber Zone. Caution is advised since the world has an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions that are not well understood and might be a danger to a visitor. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Five Sisters Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Jone, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a marquis. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Jone is a member of the Spinward Main. It is a member of the Sister's Reach. The bright supergiant star Deneb is visible in Jone's sky even during the daytime.

Jone’s civilization perches atop a number of mountains as the valleys have a rich mix of some very unpleasant gases. Occasionally these gases are disturbed by high winds, bringing them into contact with people. This possibility of mild to severe poisoning gives the world its amber zone qualification. [2]
