Thurn is a poor, barren hellworld, which would challenge the survival of nearly any sophont in Charted Space if it weren't already barren.

  • As a barren world, it has no overt population, government, or law level.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • This world could probably be populated by very determined colonists if any had an inclination to do so...
  • This die back world was once settled and developed, but the inhabitants have either died off or left leaving behind the remnants of their civilization.
  • It is a member of the Dominion of Ruins in the Despoil Subsector of Hollow Sector.
