Description (Planetology)[edit]

Approximately 99% of the planet's surface is covered with ice, though there is just enough temperature variation to allow for isolated melting, especially at the equator.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Glisten Mineralogical operates a test mine at the north pole. All of Aster's human population is clustered around the mine in a small enclave.
