Arzank

Arzank is a star system located south of Ukmirt and Fujiko and north of Kimirthro. It is West of Refidh. It is part of the Yamatai Star Empire.

History

During the First Mishhuvurthyar War, an Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX) forward operating base was located here in YE 29. The First Expeditionary Fleet later cut off Arzank's supplies by attacking the Kimirthro system. The SMX forces were destroyed by the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 29 via orbital bombardment.

In YE 38 it was claimed by the Yamatai Star Empire during the International Relations Conference of YE 38 to create a larger buffer against the spreading Rixxikor. Due to concerns about the safety of Arzank III, the Frontier Starport was built on Arzank II, not far from the ruins of the Mishhuvurthyar base.

Sun

Arank is a large star that delivers scorching temperatures to its surrounding planets.

Planets

  1. Arzank I: A lava planet.
  2. Arzank II: A hot desert world with a nitrogen atmosphere. Two large salt-water lakes are the only available source of water. While oxygen levels are too low for human respiration, the availability of precious metals at or near the surface makes it an a tempting prospect for mining consortiums. The SMX once had a base here, but its site is now just a bunch of craters. The Star Army established their frontier starport here in YE 38.
  3. Arzank III, also known as Yith-Urath, is a ruined world of desiccating deserts and oceans of sickening slime. It is inhabited by fanatical, metallic anneloid creatures. They are suspected to be some sort of nano-mechanical life form that are all that remains living from a dead civilization. Every expedition sent to study them has abruptly disappeared.
  4. Arzank IV: An enormous gas giant at the outer edge of its star's habitable zone. It supports a system of small to medium-sized moons. One of the moons, “Blith,” has a breathable nitrogen/oxygen atmosphere but is not considered habitable due to extremes of temperature.
