It is a Border world and very much like a dozen other Border worlds throughout the system. However, the culture that had arisen on this planet was somewhat different than on other planets. A distinct separation existed between the citizens who lived in the established towns, and those who had made their lives in the hills. The hill people had become a very superstitious lot, and often their villages were not self-sufficient. To compensate for this, they were known to kidnap skilled tradespeople from the towns, whether they be citizens of Jiangyin or come from off-world. These tradespeople were put to work for the hill folk, whether moved by the plight of these less fortunate, or, more frequently, convinced through threat of violence.
- Jiangyin is a city in the Jiangsu province of China, on the Yangtse River. It is a transport hub, with a population of over a million.
