System Data[edit]

Zaibon was once a major asteroid mining operation community working a very large copper lode.

  • The easiest to access sources of copper have all been processed, and the community has declined in response.

System Importance (Ix)[edit]

Mainworld Data[edit]

Though many of the population have lived inside mined-out asteroids all of the varieties of classic spinning colonies are represented in this system: several large O’Neill Cylinders, several Bubbleworlds, several Bernal Spheres, Myriad Bolas, and various other small habitats. There are also thirty-three (33) separate Standard Stanford Torus variants, each designed to and capable of supporting some 10,000 humans. While some belters live in Seekers or other ships and small craft, a belt community requires more care and attention to be successful. Communities require common living facilities, farms, smelting locations, trading posts, and more. Zaibon was and is no different.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is an Asterioid Belt or Planetoid Belt, consisting of 1,000 and 10,000 asteroids or planetoids each. Asteroid belt is the belt when it is the main world of a system. Planetoid belt is another belt or when another world is the main world.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of less than 0.001 atmospheres which requires the use of a Vacc Suit. TL–8 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has no free-standing water or ice on the surface. Wilderness refueling isn't possible on this world. Water for the inhabitants needs to be imported and extensively recycled. These worlds are classified Desert World or a Hell World depending on their atmosphere.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

This asteroid belt was once the largest deposit of copper on record. but the lode has dwindled to virtually nothing. The facilities are deteriorating. This asteroid belt was once a major source of copper for industry in the subsector. The lodes are now played out, and the system facilities are deteriorating. [2]

That means a couple of mining platforms and a moon-base near the gas giant. The asteroid base feature the usual - a huge free-floating space dock above and a small settlement in the rocks below. The port covers most things the spacer needs. A fast-food-diner, a bar and a general store.

Or so they say. In reality this pertains only to the actual belts.

Zaibon has become home of three different cultures:

  1. First there is the corporate culture, namely Yutani, LIC, a sub-sectorwide mining corporation. They have their regional headquarters here in a sub-surface arcology. Their employees all wear company uniforms and watch company television. But the pay is good so a number of old miners have signed up with the Yutani.
  2. Secondly, there is the Democratic Union of Zaibon, effectively the local union turned state. Since there are only a couple of thousand miners present at any moment, there's not much administration to be done anyhow.
    1. They have a long-standing distrust of Yutani. Past mis-deeds such as claim-jumps and sabotage have never been forgotten. In addition stealthed surveillance sats operated by the company have long been a thorn in the eye of traffic security. Nonetheless, as the company is the main buyer in the system, the miners need to cooperate with it.
    2. The DUZ is a pretty rough place betimes, but normally peace is enforced through the union's enforcers. The collection of domes and starship derelicts has seen better times, but on the inside it is quite comfy. Some of the station's sectors of course are off limits to the safety-aware inspector.
  3. The third culture is that of Spirelle. Torkai & Sons, a Spirelle-based space research firm has a small research station here. One objective of theirs is the study of the gas giant and the local sun, while the other is the dismantling and re-engineering of derelict vessels from foreign cultures. These have turned up aplenty when the belts still shone bright red. Miners from all over the Marches once came here. Their trash is researched by the local scientists.

The pop-code changed to 4 in the last 50 years due to the depletion of ore.

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

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

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

This world 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 a population of 100,000 to 999,999 sophonts (hundreds of thousands).

  • This is a Nonindustrial World, too small to support the complete chain of production of most goods from start to finish.
  • Most examples of this type are capable of resource extraction but lack an industrial base, in particular factories, to make use of the resources.

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 95%

  • Other, population 5%

World Government (G)[edit]

This world is governed by a Representative Democracy where government leadership is representatives elected by eligible voters. What determines an eligible voter varies. The representatives determine policy, including selecting members of the bureaucracy. There can be referendum, votes by eligible voters on specific subjects.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

This world has a moderate law level with laws covering many areas of government and interaction. These laws are simple enough that most people can act as their own advocate, though for serious issues a professional is recommended. Law enforcement officials will be present, but not in great numbers. Light assault weapons, and anything more destructive, are typically regulated or prohibited.
