Yurst is a fluid world with an oceanic geography of a liquid other than water such as ammonia, methane, hydrocarbons, or other exotic liquids. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Yurst, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This is the homeworld of the Ursty, a Minor Race.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Yurst is a member of the Spinward Main.

Yurst has a warm climate and a dense oxygen-nitrogen atmosphere tainted with chlorine.

Yurst is populated by a minor race called the Ursty, an octopus-like creature that has developed a singular culture in the deep oceans of Yurst.

The Ursty are full Imperial citizens, but their society has very little trade or contact with humans other than xenobiologists and sociologists, because of their homeworld’s atmosphere.
