Cyaegha is an low-population agricultural world with a population less than 10,000 sophonts.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Cyaegha is a low gravity world in the gravitional hold of the Abyss Rift singularity.

  • Even worse, conventional communications do not work on the planet, cutting off inhabitants from the rest of Charted Space.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Non-canon: The Abyss Rift acts as a stable bubble in the midst of a low-EM-emitting singularity that lies at the center of the Abyss Rift. Its very existence is a near impossibility and yet it exists. Starships that aren't drawn into the center of the rift and destroyed often end up shipwrecked on Cyaegha. A small colony of shipwrecked sailors has built up over the years and established a remnant of the technological civilization they once knew. Luckily the local system does support non-viridian agriculture: mosses, fungi, and lichens that absorb the radiation emitted from the dark singularity. Such plant life thrives in rift valleys, where the effects of the planet's incredible gale force winds are greatly reduced.

  • The local ecology also supports an intelligent lifeform, the Siliwishisee: a strange, jellyfish-like flyer able to withstand the windy conditions in the atmosphere. The former sailors have made limited contact with this species.
