Planetary Info[edit]

Fletcher was settled by colonists eager to exploit the mineral and metal ores located in the many mountain ranges that cover the world. These mountains serve not only to provide the raw materials used by factories, but also provide some of the most impressive winter sports venues in the Free Worlds League. The downside to these vast mountain ranges is Fletcher's lack of arable land to grow crops. Only a few "boutique" farms exist, growing their luxury crops in small terraced farms. The population as a whole relies on imported foodstuffs.[1]

The Succession Wars were devastating to Fletcher reducing it's population dramatically not through direct combat, but from emigration. Few enemies could penetrate the vast mountain ranges, and as a result industries on the world have always thrived. During the Clan Invasion the population increased as the factories hired more workers and expanded. Free-Flight, Limited opened a pressurized dry-dock facility in low orbit around Fletcher in the mid-3060's.[1]

The Jihad was devastating to the system, but for a different reason. Instead of military action directly on the planet, holovid broadcasts describing the Word of Blake's actions on the Fletcher system in the Terran Corridor led many to believe that the Oriente system was devastated. The local government undertook a massive public relations campaign to clear up the confusion, but even in 3079 the depressed local economy led many natives to emigrate to other systems to find work.[2]
