Astrography and planetology[edit]

Shéaniki is the outer moon of Pelmarlu, the system's innermost gas giant. It is a frigidly cold world retaining a trace atmosphere of helium and ammonia, thrown off by the gas giant. Shéaniki displays an impressive degree of volcanism, but when the world is in alignment with Pelmarlu and the star seismic activity reaches a peak.

History and background[edit]

Around half a million Humans live in a city fusion tunnelled into a mountain, located in one of the geologically quieter areas. The remainder of the population are Droyne, who live in the unstable equatorial lowlands.

Fragmentary records dating from the First Imperium indicate that a Droyne oynprith was present on Shéaniki when it was first explored by Vilani scouts. While the Droyne maintain a stable and sustainable TL–7 society the Humans have an artificial tech level of around ten, but have to import everything they need, including maintenance personnel to keep their city running.
