Wabor-Parn is a pre-agricultural and nonindustrial world lacking adequate development for its economy to become prosperous.

  • 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.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by indigenous Sophonts located in the Banderhue Subsector of Theta Borealis Sector.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The Wabor-Parn system lies on the coreward edge of Theta Borealis Sector.

Orbit Details[edit]

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

Wabor-Parn is a Meso World between 7,200km and 8,800km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.4G and 0.57G. The horizon will appear about 4km away.

  • The world has a strong magnetosphere that helps protect it from stellar radiation.
  • The world experiences frequent seismic activity and has many active volcanic regions.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

Wabor-Parn has a pressure of 0.43 to 0.70 atmospheres. While the thin atmosphere does not require survival gear this atmosphere also contains an unusual taint such as such as disease, a hazardous gas mix, pollutants, or sulfur compounds which requires the use of a Filter Mask. Some taints may require more protective equipment. TL–3 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

  • The atmosphere contains microscopic biological pathogens that cause ebola-like symptoms in humans if inhaled.
  • Although there is only a minimal chance of infection, use of filter masks is recommended at all times.
  • The energy streaming off of the star is gradually eroding the atmosphere.
  • Ghostly flickering aurora permanently fill the sky.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

Wabor-Parn has 45-55% of its surface covered by liquid water. Wilderness refueling is possible.

  • The world has strong tides.
  • The oceans are uniformly shallow, with few spots more than a kilometer deep. Coastal waters are rarely more than a few hundred meters deep.
  • Polar waters are cold. Pack ice may occasionally form.

Satellites:[edit]

One relatively close vacuum moon (UWP X100000-0).

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

  • The supercontinent is named "Parngea".

Wabor-Parn is considered to have a tropical climate.

  • Polar temperatures are typically just above freezing.
  • Equatorial temperatures can exceed 50° centigrade.
  • Powerful storms and weather systems roll off of the oceans.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Extensive native life. Its metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

  • Lifeforms exist within every available ecological niche.
  • There are many types of megafauna.
  • Species on the world include predatory types of flora.

The fauna native to the world bear a strong resemblance to Terran dinosaurs.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Wabor-Parn is effectively a Die Back World, with only a tiny fraction of its original population remaining.

  • The ruins of its former civilization litter the surface.
  • Valuable artifacts and salvageable materials may be recovered.

World Starport (St)[edit]

Wabor-Parn has a Class E Starport, a frontier quality installation with few expected amenities. There is unrefined fuel for starships and a limited variety of ship provisions. There is no shipyard of any kind, but there may be parts and technical support for doing minor services and repair. Ports of this classification generally consist of a downport.

Facilities[edit]

Port facilities within the system include:

  • Cleared and fenced hard standing close to the city of Totalon.
  • Radio communications and a locator beacon.

World Technology Level (T)[edit]

Wabor-Parn possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World Government (G)[edit]

Wabor-Parn is governed by a Participatory Democracy where eligible voters determine laws and policy. What determines an eligible voter varies. There may be smaller councils or regional bodies to write the policies voted on. Leadership of the government and all members of the bureaucracy are determined by voting population.

World Military[edit]

Bose communities maintain small militias. Trist tribes are defended by beast-riding warrior-hunters.

World Law (L)[edit]

Wabor-Parn has no law in practice. It is an Anarchy. On many worlds, this by itself justifies an Amber Zone advisory. There are few laws, covering only important areas. There may be few or no law enforcement officers, the expectation is citizens will bring law breakers to the attention of the Judicial system. Legal proceedings will be fast, with few people involved. For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate.

World Economy[edit]

  • Resources: 6 (few)
  • Labor: 3 (thousands)
  • Infrastructure: 1 (extremely limited)
  • Efficiency: -5 (extremely poor)

Trade Data[edit]

  • Importance: -3 (very unimportant)

Principal products include meat, hides, horns and tusks, timber, spices, precious metals, and native trinkets of all kinds.

World Demographics (P)[edit]

Wabor-Parn has a population of 20,000

  • Bose make up around 50% of the population (around 10,000 individuals).
  • Trist make up around 50% of the population (around 10,000 individuals).

These are remnant populations.

  • In previous centuries the world had hundreds of millions of native inhabitants.
  • The world became depopulated during the "extinction war", ca -300.

Urbanization[edit]

Extensive, heavily overgrown ruins can be found in many areas.

Bose
The Bose inhabit a few small urban areas, each of which is surrounded by satellite communities and fortified ranches and farmsteads.

  • Inhabited areas are dotted across the continent.
  • Much of the surface of the world remains as wilderness.

The major named communities are Ranjabtul, Comorsa, Derkau, and the port of Totalon.

Trist
The Trist follow a semi-nomadic life.

  • Small tribal groups move between traditional territories.

World Culture[edit]

  • Homogeneity: 1 (monolithic)
  • Acceptance: 1 (extremely xenophobic)
  • Strangeness: 1 (very typical)
  • Symbols: 1 (extremely concrete)

World Timeline[edit]

  • ca -2100: first contact with human explorers.
  • ca -1000: the Bose achieve TL–5. Wabor-Parn's population exceeds 200 million.
  • ca -300: the extinction war. Wabor-Parn's population falls to less than 8000.
  • ca 420: Wabor-Parn's population has increased to more than 15,000.

UWP Listing[edit]

  • Prior to human contact (ca -2100): X555774-1 (approximately 35 million Bose, 55 million Trist).
  • Immediately after the extinction war (ca -300): E545300-5 (approximately 3500 Bose, 4000 Trist)
