The farthest planet, a ringed world which somehow managed to form shallow polar oceans, an atmosphere with sufficient ozone protection, and even some primitive plant-life, thus became a colony site for people eager to escape the tyranny of Terran government in mankind's first exodus into space. Despite higher than average concentrations of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and trace amounts of methane, Algorab drew a remarkable number of colonists eager to exploit this world for its metallic and natural gas deposits.The planet's interior - well between the polar oceans of Niriama in the north and Vanishing Sea in the south - became populated by a smattering of shielded, climate-controlled mining and refining colonies, linked to the more hospitable shoreline settlements by a system of maglev rail lines and airship cruisers. The lands in between, largely barren wastes of rock and sand, is inhabited by only the hardiest of settlers from Terra's central African and Middle Eastern regions. The promise of profit in the fuel and mining industries drew many more people to Algorab over the decades, even though this world lay uncommonly far from its jump point and lacked sufficient arable land to support itself without reliance on freeze-dried foods from off-world.
These same factors, however, made Algorab a difficult target for raids throughout the Succession Wars, and only a few assaults were launched against this planet. Agorab's planetary capital and spaceport city of Delcorvius Prime, is located on the shores of the Niriaman ocean.
