Alk'charis is a barely habitable world which orbits the brown dwarf Meezinho which is located outside the Milky Way Galaxy. The planet is tidally locked to Meezinho and completes one orbit in 11 days.

AtmosphereEdit

Alk'charis has such a thin atmosphere that even during the day, one can see the stars. The red dim light of Meezinho barely lights up the planet making it a frigid world. The planet's extreme axial tilt causes widely varying seasons as well as deadly wind and electrical storms. Minimal plant-life on the surface is enough to create a sustainable atmosphere, breathable yet thin.

GeographyEdit

In the past, Alk'charis was a flourishing garden world, rare for planets in brown dwarf systems. Today, the planet is a desolate wasteland after a Promorin invasion billions of years ago. Most of the landscape consists of rocky limestone formations and dusty dunes, and life barely clings on. Lichenous trees are the only aspect that has prevented the planet's biosphere from collapsing.

Alk'charis only contains 5% surface water, though in the past, it was cover in far larger oceans. Vast plains of salt and volcanic rock are scattered throughout the planet, remnants of a time when Alk'charis was far more volcanically active. Two ice caps are also present on both poles. The crust consists of many layers of fossil fuels, making it a candidate for petroleum mining.

EcosystemEdit

Life on Alk'charis is limited to only microbes and lichens. Though the planet flourished billions of years ago, life has yet to arise once more due to the low metallicity of the area and lack of comets and meteors that strike the planet.

MoonEdit

Alk'charis has one moon named Alk'moris. It large, barren rock covered in craters. In the past, it would have caused spectacular tides on the planet's surface. However, Alk'charis has subtle effects on the planet's wind storms.

HistoryEdit

Alk'charis was once home to one of the greatest civilizations of the Milky Way Galaxy, the Alkan. Very little archaeological evidence of this civilization remains, but they were believed to have spread across the entire Milky Way billions of years ago. Today, they were decimated by the Promorin, one of the first known species to be contacted by the Harbingers.

The Eteno Imperial Triumvirate has considered terraforming it to what it once was, but such projects are on hold until the planet is fully excavated.

LandmarksEdit

One of the last standing structures is the hidden city of Nazaru. Some buildings have sunk underground over time while very few ruined buildings remain on the surface. Somewhere within this vast desert are the Great Towers of Nazaru, each about three miles tall. However, they are almost always covered in electric storms making them difficult to find.

Also deep within Nazaru is a buried mechanical golem which stands over 200 feet tall. This golem named Goliath was said to be the city's guardian.
