History and background
Mudupas is a prime source for Zamaraan Crystals, a major component in medical scanners. The crystals are formed after tons of mineral compounds are washed up on the shores of Mudupas’s chemically toxic seas. The compounds, on reacting with elements in the corrosive atmosphere, take five days to crystallize before they turn into what we know today as Zamaraan crystals.
The inhabitants collect the crystals when they appear once every 217 days, which is the length of a Mudupasian year. It is not known why the crystals appear just once a year, or why the minerals they grow from appear in just three diﬀerent locations on the planet’s surface. A select group of official crystal collectors are the only people who know the whereabouts of these natural crystal farms. This stops the crystals from being exploited by outsiders.
The inhabitants of Rikuliisa collect enough crystals annually to give them a wealthy lifestyle. Their buildings are adorned with various malformed Zamaraan crystals, which are deemed unsuitable for any practical use. Each year, after the crystals have been collected, various traders come to Mudupas to buy the crystals at auction. Among the buyers are Imperial and corporate officials, traders and the occasional sightseer. Mudupas has contracts with various organizations that between them have automatic purchase rights to eighty per cent of all crystals on offer.
