Astrography and Planetology[edit]

Zishku is a member of the Andalusia Cluster.

Zishku is a high gravity world with an exotic atmosphere consisting mainly of nitrogen gas. There is a minimal percentage of oxygen, roughly equaled by the combined mix of other more exotic atmospheric gases. The surface temperatures are close to normal but unusual pressures and environmental conditions create nitric acids, which fall as rain on some areas of the world. The shallow oceans are made up of liquid water and the poles are covered by small icecaps.
