Lomodo is a nonindustrial fluid world.

  • A fluid world has an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Alpha Subsector of Theta Borealis Sector.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Lomodo IVA is a homeworld to the following species: Osp, Byl, and the Irf and has extensive, abundant native life.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Lomodo was home to three different species of sophont, the Osp, the Byl and the Irf. While the Osp continue to flourish on the planet the Byl and the Irf apparently wiped each other out in a recently ended war that lasted for over 200 years. The communities built by both the Byl and the Irf lay in ruins over many of the plains of the planet. Additionally, once the Byl and the Irf had wiped each other out, the Osp were finally able to colonize large portions of the planet. Due to the exotic nature of Lomodo Iva’s atmosphere and its remoteness from Imperial and Zhodani space, little is known of the surviving species. However, it is noted that the Osp have taken to salvaging and using basic tools found in the ruins of the other two species.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

This world has a frontier quality starport.

  • A Class E Starport Facility is a very limited facility.
  • This facility has no shipyard and can only perform extremely limited repair work at best.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class are usually a Lowport and a Highport would almost never be found.
  • In truth Lomodo has no official starport. However, as the planet is open and not aliened with any spacefaring governmental body, ships may land where they please and conduct trade with the Osp if they can figure out how. or exploit the resources of the planet as they see fit.

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.

World Demographics[edit]

Population 8,000,000

  • Osp, population 100%

World Government (G)[edit]
