Degrees of Success
Once a holy pilgrimage site and source of much of the Old Kaltoran Theocracy’s fuel supply, this gas giant of swirling milky white streams and golden conflux was once called Makor. After leaving their home system of Var, the Corporation set its hungry eyes on Makor, making it their new home.
When the Corp assumed dominance of Makor, they renamed her Alabaster for her ivory halo of vapours and the majestic icy rings which encircled the picturesque world. Alabaster’s noxious vapours contain numerous rare elements of impressive utility, including tremendous amounts of helium-3 starship fuel, rare chemicals to aid ore processing, and the compounds needed to create Synth Steel. Still more treat rare ailments, serve as power-core coolants, and one special gaseous element, elysium-4 (commonly called Gossamer), serves as the key ingredient in the system’s most potent addictive narcotic: Draz.
Alabaster is nothing more than wells and storms of elemental gases enshrouding a dense nodule of hard metallic rock. The Corp’s network of power stems from the clutch of six gargantuan space stations navigating the circumference of the gas giant in slow, steady orbit. The silence and serenity of these luminous constructs of metal betray little evidence of the whirling buzz of activity and bedlam of industry constantly raging within.
