History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Torpol is a non-aligned water world in the Tlaiowaha Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

Other Data[edit]

Torpol is a water world, with no surface land.

  • The limited population lives on the ice caps at the north and south poles of the planet, or on huge stilt-supported platforms built in shallow water. The planet’s primary industry is, unsurprisingly, fishing and producing hydrogen fuel for the trade convoys that dock here. Despite Torpol’s lack of natural resources, the provosts who rule the planet have proved themselves canny merchants, buying and selling goods along the Florian trade route. The eccentric Florian League is a difficult trading partners, as guessing what the Floriani will decide to invest in next is something of an art, and the provosts have studied the demands of the distant League in order to predict which goods will sell to the League in coming years.
