Luzon is a poor, nonindustrial desert hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • This world has no free-standing water.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a member of the Solomani Confederation in the Jardin Subsector of Solomani Rim Sector.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

The mainworld was first surveyed by the Terrans during the Interstellar Wars period, who noted an unusual native ecosystem: the sole life on the surface was found at cave mouths, a single species of plant that released water to freeze and seal off the entrance while still allowing light in for photosynthesis. Within the caves were scattered large lakes containing fish-like animals.
