Ashima is a harsh world. with a dense, tainted atmosphere and hot temperatures, life here is not easy. These factors certainly contribute to the Ashima’s almost glacial population growth rate. While regular human crops can be grown here, the processes necessary to support them are lengthy and expensive. Some native foods can be utilized, as long as proper techniques are used to remove the frequent poisons, and local parasites (which won’t affect humans and similar life forms) are kept away. Ashima’s government has never had spare funds to improve the starport, and the world remains a complete backwater, with only infrequent visits by non-natives.
As there is no fuel available at Ashima’s starport, a number of ship captains attempt to refuel at the local gas giant. This giant’s size, combined with its tremendous storms, makes for an interesting experience, to say the least. As there would be no rescue attempt if a failure or accident were to occur, few captains make the effort, and rely on their fuel purifiers when skimming Ashima’s oceans for fuel.
The radworld in the system’s 3rd orbit has been settled by a small group of heavy worlder humans. Now numbering just over 300 individuals, this colony is slowly increasing in numbers, having been established only three decades ago. It is reported the colony is looking for more heavy world humans to agree to settle this harsh world. Convincing them is a difficult proposition, however, as the world’s environment is extremely harsh, with a dense atmosphere tainted with radioactive dust, and no water near the world’s surface. These settlers mine nearby pockets of radioactive materials, shipping them to nearby industrial worlds.
NOTE: These systems, as generated, are generic. Referees will need to modify the system and descriptions to fit their campaign needs.
