Mithuna

Mithuna

Mithuna was the first world to be colonized outside of the sol system and while the first attempt ended with the mysterious disappearance of all the colonists subsequent attempts yielded a vibrant society. Long years of struggle and hard work have forged the people of Mithuna have a strong identity and are fiercely independent. They arrived on a rough and barren planet and turned it into a budding world.

The planet itself is still rather barren. While forests and farmlands thrive around the populated areas the majority of the planets surface is scarred. Large indigenous red vines criss cross the land scape destroying everything they encounter.

Left on the western coast of the planet lies the ruins of the Nova colony. While the vines have begun to overgrow it the buildings have withstood the elements well. Many people vist the site and it has become a thriving tourest attraction as well as a mystery and ongoing investigation.

While Mithuna is heavily populated most of the population is concentrated in or near it’s four major cities. Smaller towns and farming communities are dispersed within a few hundred miles of the cities. A large space elevator serves as the primary access to the planet from orbit. The elevator is connected from Cyboe station to just a few kilometers south of Cinnro city, the capital of Mithuna.
