Description:

The first colonists to settle Carsphairn were quickly taken in by its varied landscapes, every bit as striking as those of Terra itself. Unfortunately, these settlers soon learned that their new home was cursed with violent weather systems, largely attributed to the pull of not one, but three large moons. The turbulent weather varies from continuous, weeks-long spring and autumn downpours to frequent tornadoes in the summer, and crippling blizzards and ice storms in the winter - all particularly brutal in the middle latitudes.

Despite this, Carsphairn's soil proved fertile enough to sustain Terran hybrid crops, and the local animals - particularly the populous, buffalo-like elwriths - provided a readily accessible food source to sustain several modest colonies. In addition, sufficient mineral wealth to provide for a rudimentary level of industrialization and export trade - if not a particularly profitable one - enabled the colonists to establish strong roots and thriving townships. To withstand the effects of the storms, the Carsphairnians built their structures low, and erected protective domes over many of their farms, and continue to do so to this day.

Located several jumps inside the Federation of Skye, Carsphairn was largely overlooked during the Succession Wars. Perhaps because of this, many natives of this world saw the Lyran government as even more intrusive than did other Skye worlds that bordered hostile neighbors, and thus the local government was more easily swayed to join the Free Skye movement.

The planetary capital of Carsphairn, Narcisse, is located on the primary continent of Gillinia. A shoreline city, Narcisse has a large seaport as well as a spaceport, linking travelers to the other four main landmasses of Basallia, North Teslia, South Teslia, and Yddrig.
