History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The subsector has two worlds of unusual character: Cymbeline and Thorwald.

  • Cymbeline is a massive planet with a paradoxically thin atmosphere. Because of the world's high gravity, the breathable portion of the atmosphere is concentrated in low-lying areas at or near sea level. Much of the population lives in sub-sea level depressions. The air at higher elevations is too thin to support human life.
  • Thorwald is the home of an unusual plant-like life form: the Leyden Tree. Internal secretions form a metal central core for that acts like a lightning rod. When lightning strikes, the charge is deflected through a network of filaments to cellular capacitors which use the electricity to convert organic molecules from low to high energy forms as a supplement to photosynthesis. An electrical storm over a Leyden forest is a spectacular sight, although best viewed from a distance.
