Mainworld Geography & Topography[edit]

Zhiblchins life is pressed on two sides on this Twilight Zone planet. Since it does not spin, with one side facing the stellar primary and another cloaked in darkness, Zhiblchins has Baked Lands on the Brightside hemisphere and Frozen Lands of ice and rock on the Nightside. A thin band reaching from the north pole to the south pole, with a declination of almost 5 degrees is home to terraformed plant and animal life by the Zhodani. On the colder edge of the Green Belt are found hardy conifers and hardier, tundra shrubs. Opposite to that toward the hotter edge are found tropical palms, desert scrub and trailing off with tumbleweeds upon mudflats. A water cycle roils like a coiling, cloudy band above the Green Belt which rains in a thin band and then trickles down a few mountains into icy seas. The small seas then flow into muddy mires that leach into drier flats and become evaporated again by the heat of the Baked Lands. Thermodynamics pushes the warm, moist air and evaporated water back over the colder Twilight Zone and rain ensues. Thus, rainstorms, often turbulent with thunder and lightning are commonplace on Zhiblchins. The planet is rich with raw resources which require specially sheltering all-terrain vehicles to extract and bring home to Zhiblchins Shadowport and its Markets. The mainworld features a wide variety of minerals including titanium and various radioactive elements from the Brightside.

World Starport[edit]

Due to its lower population of 600,000 which is limited by its green belt habitable region, Zhiblchins Shadowport is the focal site for system and interstellar traffic. It is so named because it is embedded into the walls of a very long chasm that run north-south and shields its traffic from the Baked Lands on the bright side of the tidally-locked planet.

Zhiblchins has a Class A Starport, an excellent quality installation which includes all the expected amenities including refined fuel for starships, brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing annual maintenance, overhauls and other kinds of repair, and construction of both starships and non-starships. Most ports of this classification have both a Highport and a Downport.
