Paradise

  • Lightly populated, insignificant, dusty planet on the edge of the sector
  • Initial colonization draw was an area in the central continent surrounded by beautiful, clean,
    water features: waterfalls, rivers, and lakes
  • In an effort to capitalize on its natural beauty, it was developed far too quickly and without
    proper safety precautions
  • During the development of some of Paradise’s underground, a poorly planned demolition charge
    caused a cascade cave-in reaction
  • Nearly all of Paradise’s source of underground water had been cut-off
  • In the span of a few months all of Paradise’s beautiful water formations that had attracted all the
    initial attention on the planet dried up, also killing all the natural vegetation
  • The planet has been the dry, dusty place that it is now ever since
  • All of the wealthy population left after the accident along with all of the development
    corporations that saw no further profit in developing the planet
  • Those who remained behind were the ones too poor to leave or too stubborn
  • The planet has become home to gangs, small-time criminals, and anyone else not wanting to be
    bothered, due to cheap and readily available land
  • A large portion of the people who immigrated where swoop enthusiasts looking for challenging
    “natural courses”
  • The numerous canyons and riverbeds left behind when the water dried up make for extremely
    challenging courses for swoop racing
  • This has lead to what is now the planet’s only claim to fame: The Paradise Invitation Swoop
    Jousting Tournament
  • Although initially small, the tournament gained popularity quickly when the quality of the
    competitors became word of mouth “legends” among the swoop community
  • Now, swoop jousting athletes from all over the Outer Rim vie to be invited to the prestigious
    tournament
  • The planet’s largest city is Eden which is also the only starport
  • Operating in Eden is the Squib Shamus who runs Shamus’ Slightly Used Starships
  • Operating in Crystal River about 100km from Eden is Bub who runs Bub’s Expert Shipping
  • The Arconian gangster Narrik runs Syndicate operations on the planet (what little there are)
  • He reputedly employs the Black Knights swoop gang as enforcers
