Mainworld Data[edit]

Weipu is a pretty planet, possessing vast forested regions with scattered lakes and small seas. History records how many spacefarers found Weipu to look inviting by comparison with its near neighbors: desert Ippuraash (Solomani Rim 0718), chilly, methane-rich Thars (Solomani Rim 0720), and the Stralsund (Solomani Rim 0618) asteroids.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

No information yet available.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

Weipu 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.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

Native Lifeforms[edit]

But Weipu is void of any human colonization or even robot intrusion - it instead is ruled by a unique metal consuming bacteria evolved in its mineral-laden hot springs.

The first humans to land on Weipu were stranded by the inexplicable breakdown of their ship and most machinery. They eventually realized that something organic was the cause, but had little equipment left with which to investigate. A second wave of colonists landed and left in short order, bearing the survivors of the first wave with them. The colonists from both parties were quarantined on an asteroid at Stralsund and the ships were dismantled. The bacteria, while not directly pathogenic, can live in the human intestine. All colonists living on the Stralsund asteroid eventually died of iron, copper, and zinc deficiencies. The planet was interdicted. The bacteria is a widespread and essential link in the planetary ecology. Eradicating it would wipe out all native lifeforms on the world.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Weipu is a poor, barren world located on the Rim Main within Alderamin Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and has been issued an Red Zone travel advisory.

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Despite being a world under Imperial control, this world-system's Red Zone rating has kept any Imperial Nobility from being appointed to it.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Weipu does not have a starport. The Class X Starport is an indication that no starport exists in the system. There are no facilities or services available, and no site marked for landing.
