Khuulush has an unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. This is a cold world with an overall climate is at the lower temperature range of human-congruous sophont endurance. This a low technology world with technology competency below the standard for Charted Space. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Gadde Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Khuulush, 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 Nirkvleaan.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Khuulush is the third satellite of a large gas giant that orbits far from the system's two stars. Gravitational and tidal forces make the world extremely volcanic and the surface is doted with active volcanoes and pitted with extinct craters. The planet is frigidly cold, although geothermal heat keeps the atmosphere from freezing solid and creates large semi-permanent lakes of liquid water. Although the lakes are capped with thick ice, the waters below are hot and actually support primitive celled plants and animals: it is generally agreed that the organisms were accidentally introduced to the world rather than having evolved there.

History and Background[edit]

The entire population is the staff of a mining facility maintained by Ling Standard Products. The facility has been closed to casual travellers since 1105 and the starport listing downgraded from its original C classification, although no official reason has been given for the closure.
