Woswaab is a rich and agricultural production world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere and a balance of available surface water. The system supports a population in the millions of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Yogesh Subsector of Empty Quarter Sector and in the Domain of Antares. Woswaab, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdom of a baron. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains a Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. 80% of the world's population is the Minor Race Bwap.

  • This world was once known as Sabtah until 690.

History and Background[edit]

Before 690, this was the Arab-dominated world of Sabtah. Given to the Bwaps by Emperor Zhakirov as a token of thanks for their loyalty in maintaining the Imperial bureaucracy during the ]]Civil War\\, it remains a sore point with the local Arab population, three centuries later. It remains a low-tech system, unlike the other Bwap systems, but similar to most of the human worlds in the Six Subsectors.
