Environments

Planetary environments are categorised by the combination of the planet's climate (hot, temperate and cold) and type of atmosphere (toxic, breathable and absent/none). There is an additional category to the various combinations of the above, 'Gas Giant', which covers both the atmosphere and the climate.

The images you will see while ascending/descending to/from atmosphere on the various bodies can be viewed in the Planets Rules page.

The following table shows the amount of damage a character receives if unprotected in an hostile environment. This damage is only applied when you are outside and exposed to the elements, ie: not in a city. Upon reaching 0 HP an unprotected character will fall into unconsciousness and cease to receive environmental damage.



Planet Type Damage
Hot No Atmos 30%
Hot Toxic 15%
Hot Breathable 5%
Temperate Breathable None
Cold Breathable 5%
Cold Toxic 15%
Cold No Atmos 30%
Gas Giant 15%
Sun Dead*
Moon None
Asteroid 30%
Comet None
Blackhole Dead*

Environmental damage is taken on your current HP every 24 Hours.


Note
*See Sun & Black Holes Damage Rules.

When equipped some items provide protection from atmospheric and climatic damage.
Note
Some of these items require other items to also be equipped before they will provide any protection (eg: A Thermal Survival Suit also requires a Thermal Survival Helmet).
