Higaflan

Higaflan is a star system on the western edge of the Mishhuvurthyar Cluster. It is currently unclaimed by any nation officially, but it has become a home for the Rixxikor Collective. The habitable planet is a “farm” world that is primarily covered in vast crop fields divided by hedge rows.

History

During the First Mishhuvurthyar War, the Higaflan system was controlled by the Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX). It was where the construction facility for the Shlarvasseroth-class Flagship was located. A ship built here was used by Melisson to destroy Taiie.

After the war, the system briefly held by Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia following the International Relations Conference of YE 30.

During the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, the system was controlled by the NMX and was primarily used for the production of corn. The NMX built farms, a meat factory, a war factory, a prison, an NMX Processing Facility, an Model 32 Logistics Engine, a Megamishhu Breeding Facility on Higaflan’s moon) and six NMX light shipyards.

In YE 35 the YSS Aeon leading a combined attack group of 1XF and 2XF forces, launched a strike in the system destroying the various NMX facilities. They also were able to liberate the prison and evacuate all of the prisoners.

After the assault the Scientific Studies Service (SSS) deployed a Ke-P6-02a Bisen Lighthouse in orbit above this planet at the request of the Star Army of Yamatai. This allows the surface to be monitored by a small team of scientists.

In YE 37, YSS Eucharis found unknown, hostile starships depositing Rixxikor on planet Higaflan and that the Rixxikor had set up colonies on the breadbasket world and that their numbers were skyrocketing. Local defense forces got into a firefight with the Eucharis after it was forced to land due to damage. The Rixxikor had also looted the Bisen Lighthouse and killed the SSS scientists there. Eucharis briefly established a ground base, but it was removed when the ship left. It was later revealed that the starships were from the Interstellar Kingdom Of Kuvexia.

Planets

The Higaflan system has three planets.

Farnsflan

A nearly molten ball of mostly Lead, Farnsflan is very close to the binary star and is too hot to sustain life.

Higaflan

Higaflan refers to the System and the system’s 2nd planet, an oxygen rich world with lots of basic plant life including large fields of algae that cover more than half of the planet’s oceans and fields of basic ferns. The rudimentary plant life on the landmass of the planet has been cleared away by farm crops that are easily able to kill the fragile plants leaving large areas of land filled with crops (primarily corn), fallow and waiting for crops, or used for farming equipment. Very few of the native ferns remain except for in mountainous or otherwise unpopulated areas.

Frynaflan

A large ball of gas with many moons, Frynaflan is the 3rd planet and is the furthest out from the star.
