One of four systems founded in the Fourth Quarter of 259 AF by Abwehran explorers, Himmel Der Bergleute (or Himmel for short) is colonized entirely by Miners and specialists that supply and maintain miners. This is because there is no habitable real estate in the system.
A disc of asteroids, stellar dust, and debris that stretches from 1 AU away from Himmel Prime to 20 AU away, as well as 4 AU both above and below the elliptic, the Heavenly Fields are the source of the Himmel system's primary industries: Asteroid Mining. Here, miners both freelance and corporate, traverse the field from asteroid to asteroid in the hopes of striking it rich. Because of this, many asteroids have temporary or permanent habitats built upon them to facilitate “round-the-clock” operations.
|Himmel Military Outpost||Bulwark-class Military Outpost||System Defense Headquarters|
|Himmel Trade||Harbor-class Trade Station||Primary Habitat|
Note: There are various asteroid facilities populating the system that are too many in number to properly count. The lower limit would probably be around 100,000 mining, processing, and agricultural facilities while the upper limit could even reach 10,000,000.
|Approximate Total Population:||~20,700,000|
Non-orbital features of the system.
Other than the two major orbital stations and thousands of asteroid-based facilities, there are also dozens of in-system convoys that traverse the Himmel Asteroid Field. These nomads take it upon themselves to carry trade between asteroid facilities, Himmel Trade and Himmel Military Outpost. Many believe these convoys are based upon the Freespacer traditions, but these convoys are based upon an old nomadic sub-culture found in the Frostofen region of Abwehr.
Commerce in the system revolves around the following:
Role Play Opportunities for Independent Plots and/or Rest & Relaxation Arcs in Factional Plots.
