Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 12,000km and 13,500km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.8G and 1.1G. The horizon will appear about 5.1km away. Vessels with 1G of thrust should check with local starport authorities before attempting to land using emergency power.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 0.71 to 1.49 atmospheres. While a Standard Atmosphere does not require survival gear this atmosphere also contains an unusual taint such as such as disease, a hazardous gas mix, pollutants, or sulfur compounds which requires the use of a Filter Mask. Some taints may require more protective equipment. TL–3 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 55-65% of its surface covered by liquid water. It has significant large liquid bodies. Wilderness refueling is possible.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Neumann is a heavily industrialized, high-population Imperial world located in the Gazulin Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

  • At 10 billion, it has the highest population in the subsector and along with Gazulin is one of the two most important worlds in the subsector.
  • The system contains a Naval Base.

The Neumann system was settled by transhumanist Terrans who made extensive use of cybernetics, nanotechnology, and artificial intelligence.

  • The colony developed rapidly through use of self-replicating robots and powerful AI.
  • However, the planet was nearly destroyed when a self-replicating swarm or ‘grey goo’ was released.
  • Within days the rogue swarm had devoured much of the Neumann civilization before researchers halted the advance by releasing even more self-replicating swarms.
  • The new swarms were programmed to demolish the old swarms but replicated themselves at a much slower rate.

In the wake of this devastation a new religious cult, the Shield Church, assumed absolute rule of the planet. Today, more than a third of the surface is ‘swarm zone’, where different evolving breeds of nanotech fight. Visits to the swarm zone are illegal without Shield Church permission. The Church strictly controls the introduction of new technology on Neumann.

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Neumann, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

This world has a Class B Starport, a good quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and most kinds of repair, and construction of non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

World Population (P)[edit]

This world has a population of 10,000,000,000 to 99,999,999,999 sophonts (tens of billions).

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

World Government (G)[edit]

This world is governed by a Charismatic Dictatorship. Charismatic governments justify their ability to rule by simply asserting their right to rule. Charismatic dictatorships are young governments, coming as a recent change and rely on the leader(s) to supply head of government.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

This world has a high law level with laws covering many areas of interactions of people, corporations, and the government. A few worlds with this law level may be Amber Zones. Any interaction with the judicial system requires an Advocate trained in the local legal system. Law enforcement is present almost everywhere, either as people or via technology. Legal proceedings can take weeks to months to resolve and involve a dozen or more people. All objects specifically manufactured as weapons are typically regulated or prohibited (outside private residences or visiting starships).

World Technology Level (TL)[edit]

This world possesses a Technology Level of TL–13 or TL-D in Hexadecimal Notation.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Holovideo recorders.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Miniature super-batteries, prototype collectors, advanced fusion plants.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
