Remington (Di 1820) is an agricultural, nonindustrial world still lacking adequate means to expand its economy.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Another noteworthy interstellar transport node, Remington is the favorite last port-of-call for most ships that are leaving the Alurzan Loop and venturing into Eberly Gap. The Ekuur system is astrographically the last stop on the Loop, but most captains do not opt for planetfall there. Typically they refuel at Ekuur's gas giants.

  • Remington enjoys a brisk trade with the influential world of Promise, located some distance to trailing. Remington constructs almost all of the new starships acquired by that high-population world. These starships are delivered via large convoys that pass through the Thicket system. Locals call this trade route the Thicket Run and a large number of employers and speculators are eager to find personnel and ships to serve this new mercantile artery. Contracts and salaries are lucrative, but the risk is high: Promise sits smack dab in the middle of the Wilds. And the Wilds are the stomping ground for pirates.

  • Regular expeditions gather fuel at the gas giants and return them to the highport for sale.
