Description (Planetology)[edit]

Zishku is a high gravity world with an exotic atmosphere consisting mainly of nitrogen gas. There is a minimal percentage of oxygen, roughly equaled by the combined mix of other more exotic atmospheric gases. The surface temperatures are close to normal but unusual pressures and environmental conditions create nitric acids, which fall as rain on some areas of the world. The shallow oceans are made up of liquid water and the poles are covered by small icecaps.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The population is almost entirely human and comes from a wide variety of backgrounds. Zishku is divided into a bewildering mixture of ethnic and religious groups, many of whom are further divided by differences in their language. Some of the more powerful have staked out countries for themselves while the smaller groups live in their shadow. Tension in such an environment is inevitable and brushfire wars on the world are common.
