Era: New Era

Lamas is a fluid world with an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The world serves as the capital for the subsector. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Lamas Subsector of Deneb Sector. This world has a nearby Regency Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

Lamas is a young world of less than a billion years age. Life has not progressed beyond primitive unicellular anaerobes that dwell around volcanic hotspots on the world-ocean floor. Volcanism has deposited large amounts of useful industrial metals on the ocean floor, and this attracted colonists in the 760s. Oxygen can be more easily obtained from seawater, and most of the population lives in submerged cities built on tectonically stable ground.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Tukera Lines operates offices and maintenance facilities on Lamas.

Lurent planetoid ships may be found, trading, in the inner system or in the system’s Oort clouds, refuelling.

The downport is a collection of raised platforms and floating docks built in a shallow part of the equatorial region. Most of the population is engaged in various mining and industrial jobs; most locals see the subsector government as a distraction, and wish that it were relocated to another world entirely.

The Lamas naval base has a tech level 16 shipyard, known as Plant 97, that constructs small warships and gunboats for the Navy and RQS. These include the Barekdoldin Patrol Cruiser and a number of other designs supposedly built only by the Darrians.
