|Lau/Shallows (Dagudashaag 0812)|
|Classic Era (1115)|
Lau is a poor, pre-industrial hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.
- Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
- This world would like to become a major industrial powerhouse in the subsector, but lacks the population and resources to build an adequate workforce and industrial business sector.
- It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.
- This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling IISS starships and personnel.
Lau is famous for its spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The combination of a rich orange sun, ammonia-ice crystals in the mid-atmosphere layers and dust clouds that surround the planet make for beautful, iridescent displays. Tourists flock in their tens at thousands to just sit and watch these impressive and memorable events. Otherwise this world would be Just another uninteresting and barren backwater.
During the Long Night this world was named Meuun.
