Bangarash is the new capitol of the Bangar race. The planet is only loosely populated due to the relatively small number of Bangar in the galaxy, and the more even distribution across the various stars. Besides New Bangarash, their major cities’ names are all inspired by other races’ languages; Rinodri Alam is a Dragonian name and Commona Bre is Emarion. Due to the relatively high surface temperature, the planet is not a tempting place to live for any races outside the Bangar, though it is certainly tolerable to most, and many Aerai make their residence closer to the poles.

The climate of Bangarash is mostly humid, making the majority of the planet either swamps in the lowlands and rainforests in the high. The water on the planet is rich in certain minerals that are extremely healthy for the Bangar physique, but often allergenic, sometimes dangerously so, for most other races, Emarions especially. Bangar does import water from off-planet for non-Bangar consumption, but that has caused heavy inflation on pure water. The higher gravity and slightly denser atmosphere add even more credence to the theories that Bangarash was a planet sculpted for the Bangar long before it was named.

Mantra
210I1-1V Sirius System

Diameter: 1800 km
Average Surface Temperature: 260 °C
Gravity: 0.6 g
Atmosphere: 0.1 atm
Unbreathable
Pressure suit advised

Rotational Period: 28 Az Hours
Orbital Period: 112 Az Days

Discovered: Necros
Colonized: Emarions
Population: 0

Mantra was first landed on and colonized by the Necros, who built a skeletal palace whose ruins can still be seen on the surface. The Emarion Navy, after discovering this palace, bombarded it from orbit, successfully destroying it as well as killing one of the few actual Necros who left Azureus.

Later Mantra was colonized by a small Emarion mining company in hopes of finding some useful raw materials, but little was mineable, and the cost far outweighed the benefit of mining, so the mine was quickly abandoned.

Currently, a luxury liner takes cruises out to Mantra from Azureus and Coelenth to Mantra, and passes over the ruins of the Skeletal Palace. It’s a popular tourist attraction for history buffs, and a relaxing voyage for regular vacationers, the entire trip taking about four days.
