Point of Interest: Terraforming Project[edit]

Arkhuu is a terraformed world on the brink of collapse. The world was terraformed into an agricultural paradise during the Rule of Man but over the last two hundred years the planet has begun to revert. All but a few crops have failed.

History and background[edit]

Arkhuu has a single continent which had originally been reclaimed from the sea. The land is now gradually returning to the sea and much of the land consists of deep mud covered with a sun-baked crust. Arkhuu has appealed for financial help to reclaim the planet but to date without success. The colony is gradually dwindling and retreating further and further inland, leaving their coastal cities to fall into the sea. Every year over one hundred Akruuan's fall prey to the mud as they fall through the algae covered crusts and drown in the lakes of the liquid mud beneath the surface.
