Planet: Ithoon
Table of Contents [hide]

Ithoon is a world mostly shrouded under a blanket of sulfur-hued ice many kilometers thick. The sixth planet from the system’s sun, Ithoon is cold enough that remaining outside a climate-controlled hab dome or powered craft would be a death sentence within as little as an hour. Breathing the planet’s cold, dry air would result in lung damage in half that time, despite the composition of atmospheric gasses being able to support oxygen-breathing life. The exception to this can be found around the planet’s other, equally hostile local terrain – fields of bubbling volcanic mud and flowing lava that stretch for hundreds of kilometers around the planet’s southern and equatorial regions. The air around these seismically active regions is breathable but stinks of rotten eggs due to the hydrogen sulfide, methane, and other gasses released from the molten rock and sucking tar pits. The bare rock surrounding the edge of the burning fields is covered in layers of yellow sulfur, red iron oxide, and other colorful minerals and makes for some quite spectacular vistas leading up to the edge of the ice sheet.

Life on Ithoon is harsh – only the hardy can survive here – but herds of tauntauns and other specialized cold-weather grazers can eke out a living on the lichens and mosses that can be found on the surface of the glaciers and on the borders of the burning fields. Solitary predatory wampas and small groups of other predators such as kintan striders hunt these herbivores and pose a danger to the villages and small cities of hardy survivors and adventurers that call Ithoon home. Indeed, in peak winter, some of the smaller cities require armed patrols to travel the city streets to clear our hungry predators that might have wandered in from the surrounding icy wastelands. In connection with this, Ithoon has some of the most liberal blaster laws in the galaxy, as well as one of the most widespread homemade blaster industries in this region of space.

Economically, Ithoon is a marginally viable world with an ore harvesting industry centered around the extraction of minerals, as well as cottage industries such as the production of furs, ivory and bone trinkets, and jewelry. Much of the planet’s vegetable matter comes from imported sources, particularly from Ithoon’s sister planet, Centares. There are a number of large greenhouse complexes in the larger cities, which can supply approximately twenty percent of the dietary needs of the population, but without imported fruits and vegetables, the populace would swiftly begin to suffer from shortages of critical nutrients. Fortunately, the system government has implemented a highly effective intra-system transportation network, as well as a system of tax incentives and subsidies to ensure that all the system’s planets are viable and habitable.
