Oum IV

Oum IV (Previously known as UX-25 IV) is a Yamatai Star Empire world in the Oum System located just outside Ketsurui Military Sector. It has low gravity and a thin atmosphere that is generally cool but capable of deadly heat near the equator. Originally there were no trees, only moss and algae growth, but Yamatai has started to put more complex plant life on the planet in an effort to make it more suitable for colonization.

OOC: The Oum star system is named in honor of legendary worldbuilder and animator Monty Oum.
