Shetland is a preindustrial, agricultural world.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import many manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.

It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Nightrim Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector in the Domain of Ilelish.

History & Background (Dossier)

Shetland is known for only two things, its Imperial Naval Base with marine training fields, and the kelp farms of its central ocean. The majority of the population is employed either by the Imperial Navy or in support of the base. The civil service bureaucracy also helps support Imperial interests in the neighbouring Kolan Hegemony, in conjunction with Gerim in the neighbouring Caledon Subsector. The Naval base itself is tasked with protecting the Imperial border facing towards the Great Rift. The population of Shetland, as well as nearby Scapa, Kaagin, Sheffield and Gerim all trace back to one of the more successful Reaver Warlords.
