History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The name of the world is sometimes spelled Labion.

Lablon was not settled until nearly 600 and remains lightly populated. The world lies at the very edge of the subsector; its economy is supported mostly by the sale of agricultural produce through a local Trade Station, operated by the Scout Service to promote trade with the neighboring Vargr.[2]

Oberlindes Lines, Akerut, and numerous Vargr trading organizations all maintain offices on Lablon.

Most of the population lives in small farming towns scattered about the most fertile areas of the four continents. The government is called the Lablon Planetary Cartel; its main duty is insuring that no community exports goods for other than the legally set prices; since the prices are high, there is little resistance.[2]
