Lindritar is a nonindustrial world, that requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.

  • In a technological universe, societies without industrial capability generally suffer as nearly all manufactured and high tech goods must be brought in at significant cost.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a member of the Carrillian Assembly in the Drexilthar Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Remarks: Lindritar is a pleasant, almost idyllic world, largely oceanic, with numerous island chains and small landmasses. The planet is rather close to its primary, and has a warm, tropical climate in the 30°-60° latitudes; it is rather too warm for human habitation around the equatorial zone.

Lindritar's atmosphere is of standard pressure, but the perfectly innocuous oxygen-nitrogen mix can be dangerous, due to the 31% oxygen concentration. Breathing unfiltered air leads to a severe condition of hypoxia, with an effect rather similar to intoxication on beings from a more earth-like world - including humans. Indeed, Lindritar's colonists have evolved an interesting religion which relies heavily on the euphoria of breathing the oxygen-rich air; visions and prophecies by oracular seers high on oxygen are a major element of religious observance (a similar state of affairs can be found on Pysadi (Spinward Marches 3008), in the Aramis subsector, comparisons between these two religions of ecstasy can be found in Unity and Diversity: Humaniti Among the Stars [Capitol Press, 1096] ).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The world is part of the Carrillian Assembly. but thus far has been little influenced by the assumption of power by High Justice Daldreem and the ensuing problems (such as the Ildrissarian rebellion) which accompanied it. Lindritar has pretty much gone its own way, meeting the new Assembly taxes and contributing its quota of troops to Daldreem's expansion of the Peacekeepers. Laws have been tightened somewhat in accordance with decrees from Carrill (Reaver's Deep 2330), but by and large, life has gone on untouched by outside problems.

This may, however, change, for undersea exploration has turned up useful ore deposits of various radioactives deep underwater. As these certainly have important military applications, Daldreem's government is likely to turn a great deal more unwanted attention on the world. A few far-sighted individuals in Lindritar are thought to be already in communication with the Ildrissarian rebels, planning a resistance movement against the day when Daldreem's Peacekeepers appear to spoil the tropical paradise of the island colonies.
