Planetary Information[edit]

Rahne is a small world without adequate water or growing seasons. Major dust storms fling themselves across the planet creating a need to protect exposed machinery. This has helped to hamper above-ground exploration of Rahne's gems and radioactive deposits. Geologists calculate that another larger planet collided with Rahne early in it's life. As a result of this collision, they theorize, the planet and the moon, Caliban, were created.

Severe weather conditions, partly from the massive moon and from the planet's one sea, continuously arise on the planet. It has four seasons: Storm, Calm, Cold, and Melting. "Of the four, Melting is the most dangerous, as temperatures rise above 100 degrees Celsius."[34] Each of these seasons last for 21 days.[1]

No one knows how native life managed to evolve on the planet. One of the creatures, the Rahne Toad-Fox, is typical of the animals found on the planet. During the Storm and Calm seasons, it only comes out at night. It uses it's foot-long ears and ten-inch poisonous claws to kill it's prey, usually Slimy Rock-Huggers. During the Cold season, it seeks out a mate by drumming on it's chest. This attracts a female and they both bury themselves in the mountain-side by digging through the rock. They live and give birth in this hole during the Melting season.

The only seasons that humans can go outside the subterranean cities are during Calm and Cold. The other seasons are too dangerous.[35] Fortunately the subterranean nature of the gems and radioactive ores allows Rhane's inhabitants to work year round in relative safety.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

Age of War[edit]

In 2405 the Free Worlds League raided Rahne; Bruce Marik, eldest son of Captain-General Peter Marik, was killed during the raid.[36]

First Succession War[edit]

During the First Succession War Rahne was the target of an offensive by the Free Worlds League Military that in 2817 saw the Star League Defense Force base on the planet crippled. One of the officers within the FWLM forces was Charles Marik, future Captain-General of the Free Worlds League.[37]
