History

Owned by House Barnaba, its captiol world is known for its agricultural gains and the floating castles in the sky.

Geography

Barnaba is a warm, vibrant planet that appears as a swirl of green and brown when viewed from space. It has three main continents, but numerous large islands that support populations are also prominent. Most of the land is covered with tall, jagged mountains, especially the large islands. The remainder of the surface is rolling plains and valleys. Coupled with the moist atmosphere and warm climate, these fertile areas support agricultural plots which easily feed the population with plenty left over for export.

Due to the high moisture content in the atmosphere, the mountain peaks are typically
enshrouded in billowing cloud cover. Perched on top of these mountains, the nobles of House
Barnaba have constructed fantastic castles. Carved from the mountains themselves, they
provide a spectacular view that every tourist cherishes. Subterranean chambers extend deep
into the mountains, providing an easily defended stronghold.

The plains and valleys are populated by the noble's indentured servants. There are no cities per se. The population is spread among thousands of agricultural plantations that serve as mini-cities. These plantations consist of living areas, work areas, and support services for the workers. The exceptions are the starports, one strategically located on each continent. The immediate areas around these have grown with cantinas, hotels, and restaurants, but little else.

Culture

Barnaba's class system is a bit more defined than in other houses. At the top resides House Barnaba nobles, followed by minor nobles and affluent citizens, and lastly the indentured servants. To symbolize this system, the nobles live in the highest peaks - or in floating cities - while minor nobles have less impressive residences on the slopes. Affluent citizens live at the base of the mountains and the indentured servants live on the plains and in the valleys. Although technically workers employed by the nobles, most of the servants are little more than slaves, due to the tremendous debts that they owe the nobles.

Economy

Barnaba's economy is diversified enough so that when one source lags, the other can make up for it. The fertile valleys and plains toiled by indentured servants produce enough agricultural produces to feed all of Barnaba and then some. The excess is exported to the Tapani sector markets, mostly to Soterios, for a slight profit.

Barnaba has a unique product fast becoming the latest fad in the region. An enterprising company has developed an apparatus to extract water from Barnaba's copious cloud cover. The resulting water is ultra-pure. The water is bottled and sold under the label "Mistwater" and commands a high price. The process has very little end product, so the company is having trouble supplying the demand as Tapani's elite craves more of the water.
