Lurammish is an icy, non-agricultural and preindustrial world, whose surface is ice-capped and with nearly all of its water frozen.

Description / Astrography & Planetology[edit]

The world is part of the Khakhan Track.

Mainworld Data[edit]

Remarks: Lurammish is an unattractive world orbiting a class M subgiant (and a smaller companion) at a distance of over 7 billion kilometers. It is an unpleasant place, with a trace atmosphere and an unpleasantly cold surface temperature. Nonetheless, it supports a sizable colony. Originally Lurammish was a rather small mining community, but it has grown over the four centuries since it was settled to become a substantial frontier settlement.

The reason for the success of the colony is the presence of large lanthanum deposits. The abundance of lanthanum ore on Lurammish has made the colony wealthy.

Mainworld Atmosphere[edit]

Lurammish has a pressure of less than 0.1 atmospheres which requires the use of a Vacc Suit. TL–8 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Point of Interest: Lurammish Arcologies[edit]

The Lurammish colony is concentrated in a cluster of large arcologies, huge buildings housing over half a million people each. For the hostile environment of the world, the arcologies are a logical solution to problems of life support, housing, and similar considerations.

  • Each arcology is individually ruled through a caste hierarchy of technicians and administrators, with a network of duties and obligations reminiscent of feudal ties of fealty.
  • The overall world government is conducted by a grand council representing each individual arcology in an essentially democratic form of government, but the grand council makes decisions only when the outcomes are to effect more than one community.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Up until recently, all mining on Lurammish was conducted by locals and exported; within the past decade however, Ling-Standard Products has begun exerting pressure to operate lanthanum mines independently, a move which threatens the planetary economy. In response to protests and cross-claims of sabotage and harassment, the IISS Scout Base recently underwent expansion to provide barracks for a battalion of Marine peacekeepers. This seems to have diluted, at least temporarily, the buildup of tension.
