Background Event: Toxic Cloud Disaster of 1066[edit]

The world was evacuated in 1066 following an explosion at a chemical works on the edge of the small capital city. The explosion caused little direct damage, but a huge cloud of toxic, volatile chemicals drifted over the city. The city of Calsus, located in a hollow and site of a geothermal vent, trapped the chemical cloud. The little-changing weather systems and generally cool climate did little to disperse the cloud. Many of the chemicals have condensed into a thick, crystalline, deadly coating on every surface. The sporadic outpouring of the geothermal vent has dispersed some of the cloud, but not before catalyzing reactions to produce new poisonous material.

The lethal nature of the only site of interest has persuaded most to stay off the planet. There have been unsolicited attempts to explore the city and recover equipment or materials left during the evacuation, but all have ended in tragedy.
