Shadows in the Void
The planet of Midnight’s Shelter was one of the first planets settled. It now lies in ruins after it’s new government collapsed during a civil war. Like many of the Pre-CPG governments Midnight’s Shelter’s was unstable and fraught with corruption and infighting. When a civil war broke out, none of the other new colonies stepped in for fear of getting dragged in completely.
The planet remains abandoned except for the rare scavenger. There are other worlds that don’t have such a terrible history, better soil and most importantly, no large swaths of lethal levels of radiation. Additionally, the war has put the planet in a lasting Nuclear Winter with radioactive storms sweeping the planet constantly.
