Description:

A warm world blasted by a harsh, bright yellow subdwarf star, Alchiba's three southern-most continents — Frome, Nakkara, and Priez — are largely dominated by deserts and barren mountains, thanks to a lack of inland water sources. Scrub brush and small oases fed by underground water sources, however, have sustained limited mining and ore-refining industries in various grades of common and industrial metals. The northern polar continent of Havenri and its surrounding island chains, however, have been blessed with rich soils and a temperate climate that have proven remarkably well suited for agriculture.

The cause for this contrast is, of course, the planet's axial tilt, which is well synchronized with its rotation and orbit so that the northern hemisphere receives less direct sunlight than the southern and equatorial reaches. The settlers on Alchiba thus developed much of Havenri for habitation and agriculture, reserving the southern lands for industrial expansion.

During the Star League era, Alchiba was jointly administered by the Lyran Commonwealth and the Terran Hegemony, during which time it served both states as a trading post. Fortunately, its relative lack of heavy military industries led Amaris' troops to largely ignore this world during the crisis that destroyed the League and ultimately left Alchiba in Lyran hands.

The Succession Wars likewise overlooked Alchiba, save for the odd raid launched by Houses Marik or Kurita. As a result, Alchiba continues to play the role of the local interstellar breadbasket, with agricultural and light machine products forming the core of a modest but robust economy. Much of this trade flows through the planetary capital and port city of Fairweather, on the Havenri continent.
