Phlume is an agricultural production world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system has a population between 1 million and 10 million sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Vilis Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Phlume, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a baron. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

An Imperial, agricultural, non-industrial world located in the Vilis Subsector, Phlume is about the same size as Terra. However, it has a denser atmosphere at sea level. Phlume’s 7,000,000 inhabitants engage in farming and gathering agricultural products, including some hunting. A well-managed safari business also operates in the wild lowlands, but strict limits are set on the numbers of animals which may be hunted.

Phlume is a member of the Spinward Main.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Phlume society celebrates individual freedom and moral responsibility, and is less interested in strangers or progress.
