Wilson 4 (Planet)
Wilson 4 is a world in the League of Planets
Wilson 4 has eight continents.
- The continent of Panmoor is the most densely populated, containing well over half of the planet’s citizenry, as well as the city of Roughland, home to the Roughland Ridgebacks of the Dinolition league.
- The continent of Niraza is both the largest content and the least populated. The largely lawless continent is a sprawling place full of untouched frontier, small towns, and land owners of modest income who still own everything they can see from their homes. Niraza is home to more than a few megacorp complexes, and to gangs that can operate with so much impunity they are basically fiefdoms that control the lives of everyone based within their borders. The terrain of Niraza is an unlikely smashup of deserts, practically bottomless canyons and impossibly tall rock spires. Unpredictable micro-storms of vael, a luminescent, dust-like mineral unique to Niraza, often sweep across the desert at night, drenching the dunes in a swirling, surreal glow. In micro-doses, vael is a natural hallucinogen. But woe awaits sentients who find themselves in the midst of a vaelstrom. It’s not uncommon to hear about populations of entire villages, caught unawares by the glowing sandstorms, murdering each other in the streets after a blissful, epic fifteen minutes of tripping balls.
LANGUAGES OF WILSON 4
- Aquenglish (dialect of Aqus sapiens, spoken primarily underwater)
Like all LoP planets, Wilson 4 has diverse, densely populated, cosmopolitan cities that feature highly advanced technology, business, research, and education centers. Outside of those cities, however, Wilson 4 is somewhat lawless. Vast swaths of land feature little or no structure. Law enforcement (which on Wilson 4, primarily means "tax collection") in these areas is handled by AI robots, called "tins" by the local popular.
NAMED 'WORST PLACE TO VISIT' IN THE LEAGUE OF PLANETS BY SORENSEN'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
Wilson 4 is considered the “trashy cousin” of Satirli 6. If you like a wildland of few regulations, constant scientific experimentation on sentient beings, and/or arena sports featuring genetically engineered dinosaurs, this is the place for you.
'HOME OF DINOLITION
The sport of Dinolition was created on Wilson 4.
The first colonizers of Wilson 4 included a large contingent of immigrants from India that were intent on a return to "classical values." The leaders of this group insisted that everyone communicated in Sanskrit. Later waves of immigrants included people from America, Europe and China.
