HAMEDANI (D66989D-2) Cut off from most of human space, Hamedani gradually regressed to a medieval level of technology. A single ponderous empire rules the planet’s largest continent, although a few barbarians on nearby island chains occasionally come to trade or raid. A Survey mission renewed contact with the planet about two generations ago, which so far has been fairly friendly. A number of artists and journalists have come to tour the primitively decadent court of the Shah, while the Servants of the Red House have been working to get their hands on as much modern technology as possible. A patch of land outside the capital was made available for a spaceport, although the facilities are rudimentary and only the occasional Free Trader comes to use them.
