History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Dathsuts system is a marginally settled system that has remained largely ignored until recent times. In 1073, planetological surveys using the latest densitometers picked up deposits of highly refined lanthanum and thulium over a kilometer deep in the innermost planet's crust.

The Scouts landed a team of prospecting specialists on the world, and they spent the next half-decade drilling through extremely hard rock, getting to the deposits. The high surface temperature of the world (averaging nearly 600°C) made initial drilling difficult. Once down a hundred meters or so, the cooler temperature made working easier.

What the Scouts found was a bit odd: small pockets of pure lanthanum and thulium. The prospecting specialists on the team were at a loss to explain how such high-quality deposits could occur naturally. "An oddity of nature," remarked the lead prospector in her final report.

The Scouts removed all the deposits they could find with densitometers and took them to the Vilani AAB for further study and display in the geological museum. Since then, a few hardy private individuals have continued to prospect the region deep in the tunnels. A few have gotten rich on an occasional lucky find.

Recently, the prospectors on Dathsuts have reported some strange, unexplainable events, such as their densitometers jumping about wildly or going off the scale - with even more fantastic stories of strange sudden deaths. Many offworld experts think the long days spent deep in the mining tunnels are getting to some prospectors.
