History and background[edit]

This beautiful water world, with its twin red suns, has now become a popular tourist destination for the rich of Khandi. There are a half dozen new hotels scattered on the small island chains. Most are perched on top of high mountains or extinct volcanoes, above the choking dense lower atmosphere. Aerial flights and submersible cruises are popular means of taking in the sights. The starport has recently been upgraded to cope with the increase in visitors, and the influx of mineral processing companies who are beginning to survey the oceans.
