Dusk (Planet/Location)
« on: December 10, 2016, 04:19:50 am »
Solar System: N/A
Size Class: 3
Atmosphere: 89% nitrogen, 10% oxygen, 1% other gasses
Inhabitants: No permanent residents, at least anymore

Notable Information:

Dusk is something of a mystery to all known races in the galaxy. Long ago, before man could even conceive of the stars as anything more than Gods, some terrible, cataclysmic event tore Dusk free from it's orbit around whatever star it originated from, with obviously catastrophic results for it's inhabitants. It now spins through space, lifeless except for the esoteric machines that still run beneath it's surface, toiling away at maintaining a vast underground city that must have represented the last hope of a dying race.

To many, Dusk is considered nothing more than a myth, akin to the ghost ships of old Terra, but to those who believe the stories, it is also a fascinating and potentially lucrative opportunity to capitalise on technology that could well be beyond anything the younger races of the galaxy have even dreamed of. None have ever been able to exploit this, however - Dusk moves quickly, and seems to have some special knack for evading scouting fleets. Those who have set foot on it's icy surface speak of a world in complete darkness, frozen over in sub 400 degree temperatures. The exceptional individuals who have persisted in exploration despite this report that there is, infact, a vast subterranean arcology full of mysterious technology, which is still somehow warm and still seemingly capable of supporting life. Those who linger soon find out otherwise - though the atmosphere has not frozen over beneath the soil, it teeters on the edge of what is required by most air breathing races, and tales abound of ambitious individuals who met their demise unconsciously suffocating in what seemed like breathable air.

((So, a dead planet with a hook. I'd like to potentially use this in a future RP I'm kinda tossing around. The "tech" found here can be detailed further if needed, but would basically be a macguffin that provides some form of tangible wealth to whoever controls the planet.))

This has potential to be interesting, it's essentially just a rogue planet floating through space then?

Pretty much. It's a bit intentionally vague in order to make an interesting setting, though I do have a tentative game ready to be run on it (basically super-Risk, because I'm sure we all know how to play risk).

There is probably no more terrible instance of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man with human flesh.
