Planet: Sulmou
Table of Contents [hide]

The sixth and furthest planet from the Ansion star, Sulmou is an uninviting world composed primarily of frozen glaciers and chasms filled with molten lava. Only weak sunlight reaches the planet on the outskirts of the system. This lack of incoming heat combined with thick clouds of ash in the troposphere results in a frigid atmosphere below freezing temperatures. Volcanic vapors released from the planet's southern hemisphere render the air unbreathable, necessitating the use of breathing masks outdoors.

In spite of the unfriendly environment, the surface of Sulmou is considered quite captivating by those who have set foot on the icy rock. Tectonic activity below the planetwide glaciers formed jagged mountains of ice crisscrossing the terrain. Frozen needle-like shards the size of trees intercept one another at all angles, creating vast labyrinths of tunnels and caves throughout the frigid landscape. On rare days, when the thick cloud-cover parts to allow a few rays of sunlight to reach the surface, the myriad of giant icicles create dazzling light shows, refracting the light in millions of directions all at once. To the south, enormous chasms in the ice reveal rivers of molten rock flowing far below, slowly cutting more paths into the freezing cliffs.

Originally uninhabited when first surveyed hundreds of years ago, Sulmou was colonized as part of an effort to terraform another planet in the Ansion system, Gaulix. After completion of the terraforming project, several investment firms decided to extend operations on Sulmou to collect gases in the planet’s atmosphere and frozen inside the glaciers for use as coolants in industrial plants, such as the ones on nearby Soltan. Mining operations have fueled the slow expansion of colonies across the frozen vista, with the population recently reaching several hundred million.
