Sixth planet from the Desargorr sun. Type II environment, arctic protective gear recommended.
The largest life-bearing world in the system, Desargorr VI offers a wide array of geology and climate. Wide-ranging grasslands, tall mountain peaks, active fiery volcanoes, deserts, rocky terrain, and solid polar ice caps can all be found on Desargorr VI.
The centers of civilization on Desargorr VI can mostly be found in the grassy plains of the planet’s equatorial basin, where temperatures are the most moderate. Temperatures average 5-10 degrees in the cities but drop quickly when approaching the polar regions. The planet is home to thousands of species of every kind that thrive in its cool but breathable climate. Though humans and Mon Calamari have sizable representation on the planet, the most notable native species are the domesticated gorset and the immense gasnit.
The gorset is a swift-running herbivore that roams Desargorr VI’s grassy plains in large herds. Colonists have domesticated the gorsets, using them as pack animals and mounts. The average gorset stands about 1.5 meters tall at the shoulder, and is covered with tightly-curled hair. Their manes and tails have longer, flowing hair, and their overall coloration can be white, brown, black, or a combination of the three. The gasnit is an immense bat-like predator that attacks by grasping its prey with its sharp claws, which dig into the unfortunate catch and hold on tightly with incredible muscle power. The bite of the gasnit is highly poisonous, allowing the gasnit to grasp and bite its prey, then release it to die, to later feast on it at leisure. The gasnit is covered with short gray fur and generally immune to heat and most poisonous substances. Desargorr VI also holds large deposits of jadeis, a valuable crystal that was remarkably overlooked during Xim the Despot’s looting of minerals from his base on Dellalt. The most valuable form of jadeis, a mineral called jadeisite, is a compound of sodium, aluminum, silicon and oxygen, and occurs as fibrous crystals. Its composition and molecular structure give it a high level of thermal conductivity, making it more efficient at carrying heat away from the hand and thus feeling much cooler than the air around it, one test used by experienced jades buyers who do not want to acquire imitations.
