Astrography and planetology[edit]

Liishuga is a member of the Nimluin Cluster.

Tidally locked, half the world is a burning desert, the other half is locked in perpetual icy night. A narrow band known as Twilight provides ideal conditions for human habitation. Liishuga’s satellite, Robmuir, is a size-2 in extremely close orbit and its presence causes the zone to shift back and forth in a regular pattern providing periods of light and dark. An extensive ecology exists in the zone and exotic variations in the less pleasant sunward and nightward zones.
