Sometimes called "The Heart of the Bright Jewel," Klaymor boasts beauty fitting of such a poetic title. The array of cometary clouds that swirl in its atmosphere have brought in people from far and wide to see its spectacular sights. After viewing the planet's prismatic shows from space, tourists often assume that Klaymor's terrain would be just as interesting. To their dismay, however, it is a straightforward, temperate world with ordinary colonies that have spread into an ecumenopolis across its grassland terrain and twin oceans. There is no volcanic activity, glaciers, or asteroid craters to mark the tranquil landscape.
The first immigrants to Klaymor mostly became farmers, although the planet also attracted mercenaries, exiles, murderers, smugglers, and other criminals due to a profitable position in the early hyperspace age. For centuries, Klaymor struggled to rid itself of pesky lawbreakers, but it wasn't until the discovery of better hyperspace routes that legitimate government gained control. The discovery was a mixed blessing, however. On the bright side, the offenders were no longer drawn to the beautiful world, but trade along all channels was greatly diminished. A bleak era followed, during which Klaymor was forgotten and only became a rare tourist attraction for those such as the occasional freighter pilot who stumbled across it.
Eventually, as the economic conditions in nearby systems improved, their greater disposable wealth meant tourism increased. Eventually, word of Klaymor spread and it was once again recognized as a stunning site in the galaxy. It continues drawing people from all over and many of the visitors have decided to stay permanently, especially in recent decades. Their numbers have necessitated non-stop construction, with new development projects springing up across the entire surface of the planet.
