Mainworld Data[edit]

World Starport (Sp)

Uushagkir 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.

Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World Atmosphere (A)

Uushagkir has a pressure of 0.43 to 0.70 atmospheres. The Thin Atmosphere does not require survival gear although it may be hard on sophonts not accustomed to it.

World Hydrosphere (H)

Uushagkir has 15-25% of its surface covered by liquid water or ice. There may be a few small seas. Wilderness refueling is possible. Water for the inhabitants needs to be imported and extensively recycled. These worlds are Hell Worlds or Poor Worlds depending on their atmosphere.

World Population (P)

Uushagkir has a population of 1,000 to 9,999 sophonts (thousands).

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Uushagkir would be a typical Vilani world were it not for the Uushagkiran’s custom of tattooing. Each person is gradually tattooed from head to too throughout their life with each tattoo having a special meaning. Upon reaching adulthood each Uushagkiran will receive the tattoos of his family - icons representing celebrated ancestors and historical achievements. As the Uushagkiran grows his companions will award him further tattoos as a mark of his own achievements. Each can determine a great deal about each other from their tattoos. Most visitors find them colorful but lack the specialized knowledge to decipher their meanings. Few off-worlders have studied the intricacies of those symbols. The best known tattoo is the icon of shame which symbolizes that the person has committed and been convicted of serious crimes. Rather than imprison offenders the authorities tattoo the person and then release them. The tattoo covers a large segment of the right hand side of the face and many Uushagkiran’s will commit suicide rather than face this fate.
