Mainworld Data[edit]

No information yet available.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Big World between 15,200km and 16,800km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 1.1G and 1.5G. The horizon will appear about 5.7km away. Vessels with only 1G of thrust should avoid landing on this world.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of variable atmospheres. This world is large and massive, with a thin atmosphere which settles to the lowest levels of the terrain. The atmosphere is un-breathable at most altitudes except the very low ones (…as in depressions or deep valleys). Travel outside the breathable areas requires a respirator or Oxygen Mask. TL–8 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 65-75% of its surface covered by liquid water. It has significant large liquid bodies. Wilderness refueling is possible.

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Waverly, as a member world of the Third Imperium has a member of the Imperial Nobility overseeing the world.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Waverly has a Class B Starport, a good quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and most kinds of repair, and construction of non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.

World Population (P)[edit]

This world has population of 100 to 999 sophonts (hundreds).

  • On most worlds, this population would be too low to sustain itself without moderate outside assistance.
  • This may represent a large transient population such as the crew of a fleet of starships, the dwindling remnants of a dying colony, a construction team building a new colony, or an outpost that could evolve into a colony.

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

World Government (G)[edit]

Waverly has no central government for the world, an Anarchy. The largest governmental structure would be a family, tribe, or single clan. The largest group will be between 50 and 100 individuals, and there may be dozens to hundreds of them. This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

This world has a low law level. 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. Machine guns, other automatic weapons, portable energy weapons, and other military weapons, body pistols, explosives, and poison gas are typically regulated or prohibited.

World Technology Level (TL)[edit]

Waverly possesses a Technology Level of TL–13 or TL-D in Hexadecimal Notation.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Holovideo recorders.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Miniature super-batteries, prototype collectors, advanced fusion plants.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:

History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

A prime candidate for full depopulation within the next decade, Waverly is a planet in desperate straits. It is also known as Waxatha.

  • Those few ships which do visit Waverly do not get swamped by desperate emigres as in other Doomed communities. Instead, the arrival of a ship is handled in a somber fashion. The local leaders politely request to purchase as many low passages as the ship can offer. They then conduct a lottery among the entire population to see who gets those berths. Any persons who attempt to stow away or otherwise attempt illegally to obtain passage are cast into Waverly’s lethal atmosphere, and the rest of the community is forced to watch, in order to teach adherence to the lottery.
  • This grim approach is paying off. Those few captains who do pass through Waverly have come to respect its people and always try to come back for a few extra passengers, including a few whose tickets are "on the house."
