The Dexus System
Hawth is the innermost planet in Dexus. A hot, arid planet, comprised of two large continents, split only by a thin sea that runs around the equator. Furiously hot by day and freezing cold by night, Hawth is a planet only for the hardiest of settlers.
Life exists here clustered around several large mines, its sole saving grace the vast tracks of Thronium discovered beneath it’s crust. There is always work for transport ships willing to take the unrefined ore off-world.. The local mine bosses levy harsh taxes against all import/export and restrict all but the most basic supplies for their workers, but an enterprising crew can always find their way around that…
Most workers are essentially indentured slaves, working to the pay of the debts incurred in transporting themselves and their families to Dexus. Most can be free within 3 years, but Boss Largo is adept in finding new and interesting ways to extend that debt.
