The large, icy planet of Tamra IV is one of surprising beauty, despite its surface being an inhospitable environment for most sentient beings. Nightly, its azure skies set the stage for a celestial ballet of lights sparked by the distant Tamra sun. Yearly glacier melts and abundant lava flows have given its frozen terrain a marbled surface littered with monumental, glistening spires of ice. The gnarled pillars provide endless entertainment for young residents, who, tripping on an aerosol form of a hallucinogenic cocktail while watching the ribbon-like lights, enjoy rappelling recklessly down their sides.
The planet is most populated during its two short months of summer. While it is never warm on Tamra IV, the violent and icy blizzards which ravage settlers the rest of the year are less common during this time and thousands of foreigners will flock to the planet to sample the locally manufactured and entirely legal narcotic delicacies. Most of these drugs are named for their inventors, including the most popular Huggins Eyebanger, affectionately called a Huggypuff, and Anzati Mollys Blue Tar.
The largest city on Tamra IV, and its only public spaceport, lies in the Orthega Caverns to the east of the lava seas. Most mining is concentrated west of the volcanic flows around the Daesmon Crater, which was formerly a satellite orbiting Tamra IV.
