For'star has an unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Pact Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. For'star, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. During the Long Night this world was named Apkii.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

For'star, named for its two stars and nearby twin gas giants which dominate the sky, is famous for its totally hostile environment. The air carries microscopic parasites which dissolve the lungs from the inside, the soil contains micro-organisms capable of surviving the toughest decontamination procedures which inject the host with minute traces of deadly poison. The forests and jungle are filled with creatures which can kill in seconds. The entire planet is poisonous to mammalian lifeforms.

Native Lifeform: Lagaa Pet[edit]

The most well known export is the Laggaa, a small domesticated “pet” with high intelligence, loyalty and the ability to spit its venom up to 20 meters with extreme accuracy.

History and background[edit]

This planet is inhabited purely as a transport junction. Because of the hostile environment, all staff, mostly Dashian indentured, serve a maximum three-month tour of duty.
