History and background[edit]

Gladsheim is home to a small naval research facility reportedly investigating and developing novel hull materials and configurations. The high gravity, dense atmosphere and extreme temperatures provide a tough testing ground for any man made device or structure. Rumors currently circulating surround the development of new ground attack/support craft based upon the standard naval 30-ton gig.
