History & Background (Dossier)
During the Long Night this world was named Khuunis.
The oppressive atmosphere of Shukain has limited the development of the world - the very hot, insidious gaseous mix has restricted colonisation to the polar ore fields. Here the factory-mines produce raw materials for export to industrial complexes on Giinashkhid (Dagudashaag 1502). The mines are enclosed in domes; each a self-contained functionally independent of each other. There are several councils regulating every facet of the life and operation of domes/mines.
The scout base is situated on the world of Bellik, the next orbit out from Shukain, where there is a research station undertaking studies on the system’s primary.
