History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Wochiers has a high atmospheric pressure greatly facilitates crystal-growing, which is the planet's main industry. Wochiers crystals are very durable and are used primarily in Imperial warships.

The population lives in the mountains or in underground complexes. By tradition, all visitors to Wochiers must bring an offering of a living plant to the hydroponics caves; suitable plants are available in the starport gift shop.

In addition to the largest city at Wochiers Landing, other major settlements on Wochiers include Rouseau, Ginush, Gagamburg, and Kumaland.

World Starport[edit]

Wochiers 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. Wochiers is one of the exceptions. The combination of poor atmosphere and high-gravity made orbital warehousing a cheap option and so the Imperial Starport is there too. Ships should dock at the orbital station and use local shuttle services to get cargo and passengers to the surface. Surface ports are under local jurisdiction.
