It’s on these ancient mountains transformed by wind and water, where I find written in their strata the verses that narrate the violent history of this sphere.
At the mercy of wind erosion and volcanism, Dunhar opposes humanity’s efforts of settling and conquering this barren world. Unlike Lauz, blessed with a warm climate by the terraforming efforts of past ages, Dunhar experiences drastic seasons as large dust storms envelop the planet. Its high gravity, unbearable and tiring for some, hinders the development of space infrastructure.
Nonetheless, few colonies and settlements do exist, populated by people attracted to the arid and unforgiving landscape thanks to the large metal deposits found all across the planet’s surface. Due its the low environmental regulation, Dunhar is the system’s largest exporter of metal, and Lauz and Daxio, the biggest importers. One too scared to dig into their precious, living soil, and other desperate to get the metals it requires to build comfortable habitats around an icy world.
