Details

    Under the rule of the Belgardian Sojourn, Gorgon is an exile planet for Sojourn recalcitrants. Life is extremely harsh, as the surface is exposed to constant high-velocity winds. In some areas the vegetation has adapted by growing in umbrellate forms to an average height of two meters. This micro-climate under this layer is just bearable to the 93 inhabitants who live there in shelters of organic construction. This population, a prison society, mines for copper, zinc, palladium, silver and tin.
    Some untouched rare earth deposits will show up on a full planetary survey, and the trunk and limb wood of the parasol trees has a tensile strength amongst the highest recorded for a natural material. Planetary landings are particularly hazadrous.
