Beta Reticuli


Beta Reticuli is a planetary system orbiting a orange K-class subgiant star.  The system lies in the Reticulum Constellation of the Achernar Region.

The Beta Reticuli system was settled by interstellar explorers.  Shortly after the system was colonized, the primary planet was found to rich in valuable metals.  The population grew swiftly as colonists moved to the system in masses, looking to exploit the primary planet's natural resources.


Economically the planet grew quickly, with off-world capital which was brought in by those who were looking exploit the planet's resources. Sprawling cities rose out of the planet's deserts seemingly overnight, towering skyscrapers were constructed in rows to house to exploding population.


A sharp contrast was created across the planet's surface. Densely populated, glistening cities of glass towers, stood in contrast to the endless, dry deserts that cover much of the surface.

Beta Reticuli C
Beta Reticuli C is a habitable world. The planet has a large continent that dominates the surface, with numerous inland seas. Much of the land mass is covered in dry, sparsely populated deserts, which is contrasted by dense, sprawling cities where the majority of the population resides. Mountain ranges stretch across the surface that are rich with valuable metals, they're the backbone of the economy.
