Planet: Rhelg
Table of Contents [hide]

Located deep within the Stygian Caldera of the Sith Worlds lies the planet Rhelg. It is a world of cracked soil, sandy wastes, plains of jagged rocks, and vibrant jungles that stretch across a significant portion of the southern hemisphere. Two vast caps of ice and glaciers span each of Rhelg’s poles, and each is the primary if not exclusive source of freshwater for each respective hemisphere on the planet. As the world lacks any major bodies of water beyond the creeks and small rivers snaking their way from the polar glaciers deep into the uninterrupted landmass that makes up the entirety of this celestial orb’s surface.

Viewing the planet from orbit or while walking upon its dried-up surface and hearing the sandy ground crack beneath one’s boots, it is difficult to imagine vast fields of crops and fruits growing upon its now heavily salinized soil. Yet, in millennia past, Rhelg used to be a rich agricultural world that fed the population of multiple planets within the Stygian Caldera, its slightly lower than average gravitational pull stimulating the growth of natural produce. The sole remnants that might hint at the world’s verdant and lush past are the Kresshian Wilds that encompass a portion of the southern hemisphere. These jungles over dense undergrowth and towering trees are populated by fierce predators, such as endemic subspecies of mighty acklay that are believed to have been ridden by the ancient Sith, or native variations of rancors that evolved large sharp horns to which shamans and local medicinemen ascribe healing powers and sense enhancing properties. Some even believe that the deepest parts of this overgrown bush give shelter to the creations of Sith alchemists of long ago. Yet, any solid proof of the deadly terantateks or vicious hssiss have yet to emerge from within the jungle depths.

Due to its location within the Sith Worlds, Rhelg had originally been discovered and settled by the red-skinned natives from Korriban who had called themselves the Sith. Due to the abundance of acres upon acres of arable land enriched with minerals from volcanic activity, the Sith had brought servants forcibly taken from the alien peoples they had conquered to the plantations, fields, and granaries of Rhelg to slave away at keeping the citizens of Ziost and other major Sith worlds fed. As the planet was the only habitable orb within the Stygian Caldera that was suitable for extensive agriculture, its soil was heavily abused over the millennia that passed without much consideration of environmental concerns. Especially during the reign of the near-mythical Sith Emperor his followers practised a form of aggressive agriculture on Rhelg to keep their troops fed, which led to extensive and severe soil salinization in the centuries that followed. So it happened that the grand breadbasket of the old Sith Empire became empty, leading to a mass exodus of its population, both citizenry and slaves. As such, Rhelg is barely inhabited in present times with the Galactic Empire maintaining only a small presence on the planet to guard its interests within the Sith Worlds sector.
