Shownar

Shownar

  • Planet of stunning natural beauty, carefully preserved
  • Unique planet with three large land masses composed entirely of a rare form of Vertag crystal
  • Crystals formed into spires several kilometers tall, which glow with a faint blue light at night
  • When wind rushes between the crystals at high altitudes it creates a haunting, ghostly harmonic
    wave called the “Shownar Lullaby”
  • The planet is also extremely close to the Starforge Nebula
  • The Nebula fills the night sky of Shownar with pale blue and red fire
  • Planet is ruled by Oro Freatt, a shrewd businessman with heavily rumored connections to the Syndicate
  • Freatt has turned Shownar into a tourist destination with shrewd marketing
  • The upper reaches which are kept clean and safe for the wealthy tourists
  • The “undercity” portion of the planet contains entertainment for the more “jaded” tourists
    including a wide selection of gambling and vice activities
  • The “overcity,” unlike the upper cities, is made up of cheap memory-plastic buildings cobbled
    together haphazardly
  • In this setting, smugglers, pirates, and all kinds of “unsavory” criminals meet to exchange
    whatever goods and services they want
  • Most residents of the “overcity” go about their entire stay on the planet in safety and comfort
    without ever knowing about the criminal activities that go on below them
