Shadowsand is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and nonindustrial in nature.

  • These worldlets warrant hazardous environment precautions.
  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • The worldlets require 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 a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Inverness Subsector of Far Frontiers Sector.


Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Point of Interest: Shadowsand Black Hole[edit]

This system contains a black hole instead of a primary star.

  • The astrophysical properties of a world in a stable orbit around a black hole are not well understood.
  • Some even conjecture that this world's orbit is not stable in the long-term...

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

It is an airless set of planetesimals captured within a ring of radius 500,000,000 km around a supernova remnant that has collapsed into black hole.

  • Because of the enormous energies released by the nova, Shadowsand has been mined heavily in the last fifteen years since the discovery there of eka-metals, super-heavy metals with very unusual and unique properties.
  • In 1094, the Chalq Dhamon rebels commandeered mining operations there considered vital to the success of Genem Inc.'s freepoint armor projects for fourteen months before being destroyed by several contingents of Protectorate Marines.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Shadowsand has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

Shadowsand is governed by a Corporate Polity with a single corporation with a typical corporate structure as a government. A company town, or world.

But rather than a simple base of operations, there are facilities for housing workers and their families including hospitals, schools, and other infrastructure.
