Shau Pol is a rich, nonindustrial world.

  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • It has high-grade living conditions and life on this world is much admired by off-worlders.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Zairae Subsector of Glimmerdrift Reaches Sector.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Shau Pol is one of the Boutique Worlds of the Zairae subsector.

  • These worlds are feudal technocracies that each produce a specific range of goods unique and individual to each world. They are widely sought after as status symbols by the rich, connected, and nobility.

A single suit or dress often goes for more than 50,000 cr. They also make tapestries for noble families and rugs of the highest quality.

  • Shau Pol red is a trademark color only found on this planet. Made from an indigenous species of plant. It is a highly guarded secret as to its production and export is strictly prohibited.
  • Spider silk from the indigenous Wooly Tree Spider is widely used in fabric for high-end clothing on Shau Pol. The spider is bred for domestic production of its silk. This silk has an iridescent quality that remains even when dyed.
