Only a few hundred kilometers larger than Anarbrant, but with less atmosphere, Tarzog is another cold and near lifeless planet within the H'nemthe system. The surface is marked with pockets of ice and large amounts of rock. A biannual meteor shower has created a large number craters on the surface. One of the craters extends more than five hundred meters into the planets crust. Deep within the crater was once found a deposit of highly valuable gems used in making jewelry. The deposit has long since disappeared, but the occasional prospector will usually find himself out on Tarzog hoping to find the rare Tarzogian Gem.
The biannual meteor shower, known as the Silent Twins, is rarely a sight worth investigating. The lack of atmosphere for the planet does not cause any of the rocks to break up and flare similar as in meteor showers on atmosphere protected planets. Notable about these showers is that the rocks actually bring water molecules into the planet. Usually these rogue source of water freezes upon entering the atmosphere, but the occasional meteor will impact into the ice packs and as a result of the collision, the water molecules will join up with the ice packs. It is rumored that the ice packs of Tarzog grow a mere one-tenth of a millimeter within a millennium.
Tarzog is considered too uncomfortable a terrain for most mining companies. And since very few pirates have ever been reported in the H'nemthe sector, there is little reason for any government to pay the planet much attention. Hence it is currently ignored.
