Gandeal is the only planet orbiting the sun in the Gandeal system. Its habitable terrain seems to form a vast sea of ice and fire creating cavernous caves and frightening forests. The Empire occasionally sends troublesome teenagers here to "scare them straight". Also, each year, on the third quarter anniversary, the Gandeal System holds its infamous "Who Can Survive 72 Hours On Gandeal" contest. It consists of sending entities to Gandeal's surface unaided, without food or water, and with a series of tasks to complete. There are no rewards except the rare honor of completing the sector's most grueling annual competition. Often, even if the task is left incomplete, gaining a few battle scars and stories can help the most hopeless man win a woman's favor.
The creatures that live on Gandeal are mostly harmless, but the cloud cover casts eerie shadows that would make the friendliest critter look scary. This dark planet has not been completely charted yet; seen only from aerial views, it has been known to devour a straggling contestant or two.
