Shadows in the Void
Traale is a small moon orbiting a searing planet, Wai’lin. The moon is covered in mosses an lichen. It is home to a small mining and research colony. The planet it orbits is tidally locked with the sun and as it orbits parts of it become molten.
The miners man specially made heat resistant ships and harvest the molten metal and stone while the planet is heated up. Then they process and separate it during the cool periods.
The researchers on the other hand are interested in the new types of moss and lichen that are native to the moon. Most of them are medical researchers hoping to find new drugs or other breakthroughs.
Tensions run high between the miners and the researchers. The colony wouldn’t be sustainable with out each group, but that doesn’t stop resentment from the miners and scorn from the researchers from souring relations between the two groups.
