Wypoc is a fluid world with an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lanth Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Wypoc, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.
Astrography & Planetology
Wypoc is a member of the Spinward Main.
Wypoc has a normal climate and an insidious (weak sulfuric-acid vapor) atmosphere; the local inhabitants live in domed cities and rarely venture outside.
Wypoc is a hostile world, best noted for being only jump 2 from Regina, and being basically a hell hole of a world. Standard vacuum suits will be irreparably damaged within 4 hours, and experience lethal failures within 8 hours, due to the combination of acids, high-speed sand, and temperature.

Native Lifeform: Wypoc Dragon
Wypoc has become a mecca for jaded individuals desiring a real challenge: The Dragon. These and other dangerous and armored beasts run free and wild, and are known to hunt the hunter. Some have even claimed that air-rafts have been dragon-snacks! The Pen-jooin, the dragon, the bopper, and other large creatures have a thriving ecosystem, and apparently, the predators hunt by metallic ions released by the bodies of their targets. The local creatures are edible, as a general rule, but are not particularly tasty.
Gravity & Size
Wypoc is 14,570m in mean surface diameter as of the 1066 Second Survey, although specific accuracy is questionable. Local gravity is 1.3 G's standard, with local variation of up to 0.05 G's. The core is molten nickle/iron, with a dense silicate crust.
The atmosphere of Wypoc is an insidious mix of hydrofluoric, hydrochloric, and sulfuric acids, plus a small amount of prussic acid is also present. Atmospheric pressure at surface is about 2.5atm, and the orangeish haze is ever present, and leads to a notable lack of useful visibility.
The liquid which passes for an ocean is a rich soup of amino acids, plus some of the acids above. The amino acids and proteins of Wypoc's life, however, are definitely incompatible with H. Sapiens, and also with Vargr, digestive capabilities. This hydrosphere has a major problem for life: most of the proteins are immediately broken apart by one or more of the available acids.
History & Background (Dossier)
In 1106 a small Imperial Navy facility was established to test hostile-environment equipment. The inhabitants live in domed cities they call demes and rarely venture outside. Recently, however, the military (Imperial Marines) has been testing protective suits which will enable personnel to operate in the insidious and freezing atmosphere for long periods. There is a large marine contingent on the world and the local economy is doing quite well.
There has been some mention in the local media that the Marines have been there longer than one would think necessary to just test vacc suits and none of the suits have been made available to the locals.
- The population is focused around three public activities, which include:
- Orbital manufacture of electronics
- Expedition hunting
