The Pax System

 The Pax System is known for its peace and neutrality. The Darreek (native to Pax) are an avian race, who long ago combined every part of their society with their occupations. For a while, the huge Corporations (having suddenly been given military, police, lawmaking, religious, economic, and political 
authority) battled it out until one emerged the victor. Now the entire Pax system is run by an elite group of Corporate Executives.

System Specifications
  • Name:  Pax
  • Color:  White 
  • Size/Magnitude:  Main sequence star 
  • Planets:  4
    • Pax I (Geoni)
    • PaxII (Orfellan)
    • Pax III (Pax Prime)
    • Pax IV (Broath)
Pax I (Geoni)
Geoni is a large, heavy gravity world. It is covered with oceans of red-colored acid. The scouts that discovered the world had to pull out before entering 
the atmosphere. The planetís air is so corrosive that any ship will have its hull integrity compromised within minutes. This planet is not suitable for 
habitation, and its only use would be collecting toxic chemicals for industrial use.

Pax II (Orfellan)
 Orfellan is the true center of Paxís economy. With hundreds of millions of visitors a year (most paying an arm and a leg to get in) Orfellan insures Pax 
Systemís prosperity. The planetís main function is tourism, which has grown exponentially after the systemís addition to New Imperium territory. Orfellan 
is a pleasure planet. The team that "discovered" Pax for the New Imperium suggested regular shore leaves to Orfellan (after spending three months on a 
two week mapping job).

Pax III (Pax Prime)
  Pax is the homeworld of the Darreek and the center of government for the Pax System. The planetís precipitous peaks were the lairs of the birdlike 
Darreek back in their ancient history; now they boast large "floating cities" held aloft by large repulsorlifts and tethered to the mountaintops. The Darreek 
love their cities, and spend much of their free time flying among the cities and down to the surface below. They have kept their world in pristine order; 
Pax is a popular site for artists to visit and gain inspiration from their beautiful, jagged, snowcapped peaks and unique vegetation. The Darreekís floating 
cities are adorned with natural flora from the planet to help those of their race living in the cities to feel more at home. Still, many Darreek prefer to live 
among the peaks and mountains of their beloved homeland.  

Sunset on Pax Prime is a joy to behold. The gray/gold sun, the warm blue sky, the red jewel of Geoni, the emerald glow of Orfellan, and the shimmering 
diamond of Broath make it an experience in ecstasy like no other. The only downside is that the mountainous terrain combined with the planetís already 
thin air makes it a breath mask only sight.  


The Darreek are a race of avians native to Pax. They have large, expansive, and often colorful wings that make them look visually attractive to many 
races. Their thin, noble-looking faces and colorful crests are augmented by the intelligence apparent in their eyes. Their wings are quite unique in that they can fold them behind and underneath their arms, allowing them to manipulate objects with their four-fingered hands. Their feet are made for perching on the craggy rocks and peaks of their native environment, and they find walking on flat surfaces somewhat uncomfortable and dull. Still, they bear it to advance their corporate environment and to build colonies on other worlds (although they all contain adequate perches for Darreek to use). The Darreek have readily accepted incorporation into the New Imperium, and are eager to expand their influence into other systems. They welcome visitors to their worlds, especially Orfellan, which has greatly advanced their economy. The Darreek are an intelligent, fun-loving and sometimes crafty race that are 
another unique and helpful addition to the New Imperium.

Pax IV (Broath)
 Broath is a very unusual agricultural planet, seeing as it is an ice world. The planet itself is so extremely frigid that humans cannot survive on the surface 
for more than one or two minutes. However, it is the systemís main source of food, which is grown in huge biodomes. This fluke dates back to the early 
space explorations of the Darreek. Unlike most races they discovered interplanetary travel very early, but discovered interstellar travel very late. This has 
much to do with their Corporate Government. Sending ships to other worlds was very profitable, but space exploration was of little interest to the public 
at large. Then the wars started and all thoughts of other systems far away vanished.  

Broath has a number of biodomes in which food is grown. It is then shipped out to supply the rest of the system (mostly Pax Prime).
