Notes (2017)[edit]

Junidy is an Imperial, high population world lying near Vargr space. Its universal world profile (UWP) is B434ABD-9. The world is about the size of Mars, but with oceans. Its atmosphere is very thin, although breathable when the atmosphere is raised slightly.

While the ideology is different, the restrictiveness and control by the government resembles somewhat pre-glasnost USSR. The tech level is comparable to Earth about the year2010. A particularly large Scout base is here, referred to as a way station. The main starport is good quality and has a Vargr trading center intended to encourage extra-Imperial trade.

The world is shared between two races, humans and the natives called Llellewyloly. These beings resemble large, fluffy balls standing on five multi-jointed limbs. Llellewyloly predominate in the countryside, while the humans congregate in the cities. Because of the very thin atmosphere, the cities are under enormous domes where the air pressure is enough to eliminate the need for respirators. Camgoth, and other cities near secondary starports, also have Vargr ghettos. Most of these Vargr came as refugees some years back as a result of the violence from the Kforuzeng expansion in Vargr space.

The cities are socially stratified in a literal sense. The rich and powerful occupy the penthouses. The poor live at about street level. Those in between occupy the middle layers.

The distribution of wealth in the city is steep, and there is little communication across social levels. They each have their own stores, schools, and even separate entertainment channels. The upper class ride in gleaming grav vehicles imported from other worlds. The middle class use mass transit autocabs on skyways connecting the various buildings. The lower class walk the narrow streets or use bicycles.

Well-to-do among the lower class ride electric motor scooters. Businesses use small, tri-wheeled trucks that run on petroleum. "Lords," among the lower class, still prefer to ride private cars over middle class mass transit. Such cars are styled narrow to accommodate the day traffic.

The area of the low city most renowned for its murders is the Vargr Quarter. Sociologists believe conditions have made territorial instincts. particularly strong in this community. Visitors there are seen as intruders. Their killing isn't regarded as murder, but a community service.

The greatest problem lies in the Gray Zone. This is a strip, about two blocks wide, where the Vargr Quarter overlaps with the rest of the city. Naturally, conflict between humans and Vargr is common, usually in the form of gang wars, each struggling for control. Off-worlders, however, are in the least amount of danger, perhaps because they are transient and uninvolved. Still, there is much potential for trouble, either out of ignorance, by accident, or the characters are handy when locals wish to vent their frustrations.
