Vland Subsector B: New Era data, as of 001-1202 / Imperial era data, as of 001-1120

Subsector Maps: 1202 and 1120.

UWP Notes: The following worlds have had their sizes bumped up to ensure sufficient gravity to retain their atmospheres:
WorldLocationSize Bump
Otsaellghue09022 to 5
Anaanika10033 to 5
Azu11024 to 5
Sikilar11073 to 5
Suragginsu11093 to 5
Liwar11103 to 5
Angvae12033 to 5
Kummus12062 to 5
Deraan14034 to 5
Maran14083 to 5

It made more sense to strip Sakkuum (1609) of its trace atmosphere than bump it up in size.

Subsector Notes

1: Odhughe was originally listed as having a K0 V M6 D. As M6 D doesn't exist, I bumped it up to M6 V.

2: Azu was originally listed as having a M7 VI M3 D. As both don't exist, I bumped them up to K8 V and M7 V to provide a bit of warmth to an otherwise decent world.

3: Vhodan was scaled down from G1 II K0 IV because supergiants aren't that common.

4: Timat was originally listed as having a M0 V primary, but the average temperature listed in The Flaming Eye was too warm for that star's output so I gave the planet a warmer star. To make up the balance, tidal stresses inflicted by the gas giant it orbits have resulted in a fair amount of geological activity, which just so happens to be written into the library data. Plenty of geothermal energy to warm the place up.

5: Guusimka was originally listed as having a M6 V primary, but the average temperature listed in The Flaming Eye was way too warm for that star's output so I gave the planet a warmer star. Although still frigid, summer days will at least be ice free for most of the planet.

6: Maran was originally listed as having a M7 V primary, but the average temperature listed in The Flaming Eye was way too warm for that star's output so I gave the planet a warmer star.

7: Audhumla was originally listed as having a M5 V primary. This would make the world an Antarctic icebox. I decided to warm things up.

8: Riinel was originally listed as having a M5 V primary. This would freeze their oceans and their only crops would be lichen. I decided to warm things up, but since it's supposed to be an agricultural world, I had to push it out to a longer orbit so that it could have a reasonable growing season.

TNE Subsector Notes

by Chris Griffen

Vhodan Subsector: The Vhodan Subsector has an estimated population in 1202 of approximately 1.66 billion, a decline of 97% from its Pre-Collapse popu-lation. Its highest population is 584 million at Diiron, and its highest tech level is 9 at Timat. The Vhodan Subsector had an estimated population in 1117 of approximately 58.28 billion. Its highest population was 41.8 billion at Guusimka, and its highest tech level was 15 at Otsaellghue and Maran.

Colonized during the First Imperium with a dome ecology, Sikilar (1107) was a popular retirement world, because of its low gravity. As the Long Night deepened, it was cut off completely from interstellar contact. Technology became the province of a social class. The domes were maintained by rote knowledge, but their atmosphere became thinner over the centuries. The population physically adapted to this change.

Then an ambitious adventurer by the name of Dhusa (the only name now remembered) arrived from a higher tech world awed the populace with his "magic," and set up a religious dictatorship. Dhusa's legacy was one of the most draconian governments ever to blight the face of the Imperium. This highly insular, xenophobic culture died out during the early months of the Collapse.

In the Pre-Collapse era, an automated refuelling station serves travellers at Liwar (1110) in an otherwise useless system. The machines of the system were serviced by a hermit, who avoided any contact with outsiders. Most vessels would stay at the refueling station no longer than necessary. Vampire fleets made frequent stops at Liwar in the early days of Virus. The resources of the base were eventually depleted and as far as anyone knows, the station remains a desolate, unvisited hulk for some six decades now.

Timat (1406) has independently achieved interstellar flight. Largely left alone by the initial onslaught of Virus, the residents of Timat have gradually built their industrial base. They have successfully refurbished six free traders and three subsidized merchants, arming and equipping them by cannibalizing starships that were either stranded on Timat during the Collapse or crash-landed there in subsequent years. The trader fleet would actually be larger, but on two occasions refurbished starships were accidentally equipped with Virus-infected salvaged parts. The ships were immediately reinfected by Virus once they were made operational and proceeded to attack the Timati. Fortunately, the Timati were defended successfully by other ships in their trader fleet. The trader fleet has reestablished trade ties with Diiron and Maran and provides freight service and trade interface between the two worlds and Timat itself. In 1188, a small Vampire Fleet invaded the system, much to the consternation of its inhabitants. In a stroke of diplomatic genius, Timat's leaders managed to strike a deal with the benign Hobbyist/Empire Builder-strain Vampire ships to avoid a confrontation. Timat's leaders fear the day when a more belligerant Virus enters their system.

Gamgliebo (1604) was under intense study from a team of IISS astrophysicists before the Collapse came. Although listed as a trinary with asteroids and a gas giant, the gas giant is a supergiant with a fairly large amount of internal fusion. Studies had indicated that over the last four centuries it has reached a critical size, and may be on the verge of becoming a fourth star.
