Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Carse is a member of the Spinward Main.

The world is covered with a variety of biomes including deserts, grassy plains, and temperate forests. Despite what seems like a rather lush garden world-like environment, it is anything but. Local conditions favor specially adapted lifeforms and human-congruous life struggles on the world.
