Splrug

Splrug is an backwater star system West of Kimirthro. It was held by the Mishhuvurthyar back in the First Mishhuvurthyar War, but neither Yamatai or Nepleslia took over after the Mishhuvurthyar forces left. Splrug has a mining operation on it and has become a quiet port of call for independent characters and black market smugglers.

Splrug has 8 planets, of which only one is really notable: Splrug IV.

Splrug IV

A planet covered with vast, deep oceans. A large axial tilt and a highly elliptical orbit make for extremes of temperature, driving a highly unpredictable and notoriously unpleasant weather system. The planet's only major landmass, a small continent in the northern hemisphere, features rocky terrain and several active volcanoes. No indigenous lifeforms exist here, and the only habitation is centered around small-scale Mishhuvurthyar civilian mining operations, which quietly remained when the First Mishhuvurthyar War ended. Because sentiment against the Mishhuvurthyar is still very negative, the minerals are sold via the black market with their origins concealed.

Because of the continued black market activity, Splrug IV's small starport has become a bit of a smuggler haven. It has a population of several dozen very rough workers who are good at keeping secrets. In addition the main landing area, it has a cargo mover mecha, good (fast) repair facilities, a starship-style medical lab, a small capsule hotel, and a small and an overpriced local market where imported goods and food are sold.

Overall the starport is decrepit, because the Mishhuvurthyar Government that built it is no longer around to maintain it. Much of it was damaged during the war and the repairs are shoddy. Security is abysmal and crime is common and local rules include volumetrics being prohibited. Sometimes pirates stop here to fix their ships.
