No information yet available.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 7,200km and 8,800km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.4G and 0.57G. The horizon will appear about 4km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 0.71 to 1.49 atmospheres. A Standard Atmosphere does not require survival gear and will likely be easy for most sophonts to breathe.

Point of Interest: Surshi Cloth[edit]

The mainworld produces the famous Surshi Cloth. This fantastically expensive substance is produced by a local insect which has been altered and conditioned to spin its webbing in sheets of delicate, iridescent material. Attempts to raise these insects elsewhere have failed.

The natives of Zurrian keep hives of these insects as other humans keep Shaccas or bees, and harvest the cloth periodically. The local aristocracy claims 10% of the harvest but otherwise leaves the populace to its own devices. The cleaned cloth is shipped all over the sector - for those who can afford it. It is strong for its weight and a surshi garment retains its beauty for many years.

Zurrian's meager starport consists mostly of warehouse districts handling surshi cloth trade. Few offworlders visit Zurrian, making the need for quality accommodations low.
