The Opal system has three and a half planets. The half comes from a planet that was almost completely destroyed in the war. The majority of the northern hemisphere remains, the rest of the planet has been reduced to an asteroid field.|
The sun(known as Opal) is a bright aquamarine. Orbiting Opal is a ring of destroyed ships. There are wrecks floating throughout the system, the gravity of Opal slowly bringing them closer and closer.
The first planet from Opal(currently) is Phalyn. A water world, no vegetation grows here other than seaweed. The shallow waters, however, are teeming with aquatic wildlife. Humans must wear breathing masks. If not, their longs eventually clog from an air born algae. There are many precious metals beneath the surface of Phalyn, making it valuable to droid companies and starship manufacturers.
Next out is Glaice. A lush, beautiful jungle covers the planet. Cities float above the jungle, as it is against the local religion to build anything in the jungle itself. Only religious pilgrimages are allowed to the jungle floor.
The third planet is Sundat. It was a planet rather similar to Earth before the war. Now it is little more than a mudball. Some settlements still exist here, but the majority of the population now live on Phalyn and Glaice. Sundat's orbit takes it far away from Opal right now, and later in the year it becomes the closest planet.
The other planet was known as Plytex. It sits between Phalyn and Glaice. A very rocky, mountainous world. While not many battles were fought there, it was where the bloodiest took place. It has no atmosphere any longer, and the planet is rather unstable. It is only a matter of time before the rest of the planet breaks apart from the gravitational pulls of the different planets, and the occasional starship wreck colliding with it.
