Nell is the habitable planet in the Nellrun system. It is a large Earth-like planet with an oxygen-rich atmosphere. Nell has no distinguishable continents, and all the planet's rivers flow into a single ocean in the western hemisphere. On the opposite side of the planet to the ocean is vast, unbroken desert. There are two settlements on the planet, a conventional starport filled with familiar species, and nearby trading post where the people are much more foreign and exotic, and unknown species are commonplace.

Nell Starport

This small, decrepit starport has a crane system and a set of carts and rails that lead to a set of warehouses. It also has decent repair facilities, a multi-species medical clinic, and a large underground shelter full of mattresses designated as the public sleeping area, and a waffle diner. There is no fuel station but sometimes ships bring fuel to sell.

Waffle Hut

The Waffle Hut is a greasy classic-style diner.

The Sleepy Starship

The Sleepy Starship is a bar built inside a burned-out starship hull. It is known for its punch bowl. The bartender is a bald Nepleslian man with deep blue eyes. He's packing a Zen Armaments 'Little Killer'.
