Edge of the Empire: Tyche & Nemesis
Come for the seafood, stay because the heavy metal poisoning is causing you to shit yourself to death
Urce is a moderately sized industrial world to the east of the Expansion Region. It has a single large continent surrounded by polluted seas. During it’s heyday, vast orbital shipyards surrounded the planet and the whole continent was covered in bustling factories, worked in by a population of billions. Then the mineral wealth of the system’s asteroid belt and the planet’s single moon ran out, and the orbital factories were flown out to other systems. These days, a population of about 20 million cluster around the four major spaceports that are still operational, separated by thousands of kilometres of abandoned factories and crumbling residential towers, inhabited only by roving gangs and worse.
