Shéaniki has a trace atmosphere and water available in the form of ice. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. The world lies substantially outside of the habitable zone of the system and environmental temperatures are well below the freezing point of many gases. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Mimu Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Shéaniki, 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. 20% of the world's population is the Major Race Droyne. During the Long Night this world was named Nemuun.

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.
