Astradeia

Overview

One of the Empire's more recent acquisitions, Astradeia is a planet located in the galaxy's outer rim. It's a cold place, associated mostly with its snowy mountains and frozen tundras, though it also has an abundance of lush forests. The people who live there are subjected to sub-zero temperatures year-round, so many towns are located along Astradeia's coastlines where the climate is warmer. The native species are better-equipped to deal with the cold than foreigners are. Some have bodies that are covered in thick, warm fur. For others, it's fatty layers of blubber instead that insulate heat.

At the point of its discovery by the Empire, Astradeia was only just beginning to undergo its industrial revolution. As a result, the culture of Astradeia is an unusual and highly distinctive one. The poorer natives carry out pre-revolution jobs like mining and farming, whilst the rockets of the richer natives – as well as foreign settlers – fly overhead, transporting imported and exported goods.
