Larspri is a barren world with no overt population, government, or law level.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Tiny, dense Larspri holds an atmosphere of hydrogen and carbon compounds only because it is fairly far from its primary.

  • These react with the metals on the surface to produce corrosive and poisonous compounds. Its tiny hydrosphere is composed of frozen carbon dioxide at the poles.
  • This lump of matter would be good for nothing if it were rock, but it is almost pure metal.
  • Scientists have speculated that it may be a chunk of a planetary core left after the planet was smashed by comets, or even a chunk of a burned-out dwarf star.
  • Larspri is a rich source of metals from copper through the transuranics.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]
