Daru Khathak, Altunis III

A terrestrial earth-like planet , only significantly cooler. There are extremely large polar regions, but the equatorial regions are generally warm and pleasant.  The Long winters are interrupted every 20 to 30 years as Altunis Beta, the distant companion to their primary star swings around and warms the planet.

Daru Khathak is home to sentient species of large furry mammalian creatures called Khathaki. The Khathaki are a royalists, and a single royal household rules the entire planet. They are generally a peaceful species, and they have yet to expand beyond their own star system, however they do possess advanced technology, and they are prepared to defend themselves.  They worship the ancient aliens that once visited them.  The planet has one moon, which appears as blue in the night sky.

Daru Khathak is currently on the control of Damshin Colonial Works, a mining and terraforming research company.  DCW mines the world for some of its rare and precious minerals.  There are rumors they have enslaved some of the more radical clans of the Khathaki, at the behest of the Khathaki world government.

The survivors have built a modest but thriving community.

New Mercury,  Saartec III

An Earth-like planet with several large landmasses concentrated around the planet’s poles.  A planet with an abundance of native lifeforms.  The atmosphere is slightly richer in oxygen, but still perfectly breathable. The most dangerous thing about this planet is its native wildlife. There are several landmasses on New Mercury, ranging from archipelagos to large continents. Most of the equatorial lands are covered by dense tropical rainforest, although the planet’s largest continent also features open grassland regions and a large central desert. The poles are cold but forested, with temperatures never falling below 0ºC.   There are several large cities, starports and resorts.  Big game hunting (poaching) is a very popular sport and the corporation behind it clones most of the life forms that are hunted, keeping the wildlife population very high.

A large gas giant with an atmosphere mostly composed of hydrogen. There are two giant storm systems in the planet’s atmosphere.
