~ FAE Scouting Report ~

Purgatory: Initial scouting confirms that the surface of the main planetoid (Purgatory) is a dry, oxygen poor, rocky planet. Atmospheric oxygen levels are to low on average to supply your suit integrated life support system, but dedicated machinery is able to siphon and concentrate this atmospheric oxygen into standard storage tanks. In polar regions and at high altitudes a thin layer of snow can accumulate. However this resource is light and sparse. I recommend you construct a Moisture Vaporator to accumulate water vapor from the atmosphere. My knowledge of planetary formation leads me to theorize that many centuries ago this system was habitated by an advanced civilization. This theory is based partially on the fact that the standard array and density of common ores is missing from this planets crust. Scant deposits can be found and as is typical they will stain the surface indicating their presence. These dense ore veins are rare however and any mining expedition should expect to travel as many as 6- 20 kilometers between ore veins. My scouting has identified and confirmed veins of the following ores:

  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Silicon
  • Cobalt
  • Magnesium

Asteroid Ring: Purgatory posses such a strong gravitational effect that it has concentrated all system asteroids into a dense ring circling the planets equator. Again evidence of the ancient civilization exists here, the working theory is that an advanced technology habitation ring once was orbiting the planet. Remnants of which are the many concentrations of rare metals and organic compounds found amongst the asteroids. My scouting has identified the following ore veins:

  • Iron
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Phosphorous
  • Potassium
  • Carbon

Luna: Four smaller planetoids orbit Purgatory, The smallest of which is Luna, A rocky moon with effectively no atmosphere. This moon poses two primary resource attractions. The obvious is that along the polar regions a layer of dense ice can be found in quantities and depths that make harvesting efforts worthwhile. Under the surface of Luna can be found your standard array of resource deposits. The expected surface staining is faint to non existent so prospectors may decide that more easily located veins on other planets may be more worth their while. This is countered by the fact that in deep veins Platinum can be found. I have located this resource exclusively on Luna, (At least within this system) My scouting has identified the following ore veins:

  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Silicon
  • Platinum
  • Cobalt
  • Magnesium
  • Ice

Nibiru: Preliminary long range scans of this system identified a level of heavy element radiation that was an appealing draw for trans-system logisticians. As it turns out the entirety of the Uranium resources in the system are found in the crust of the Planet known as Nirbu. The thick atmosphere has low levels of Oxygen, sufficient on only rare areas to breathe without your respirator. But certainly dense enough to concentrate into a standard life support system. Planetary moisture levels are high enough to produce hydric concentrations in basin collections. These "lakes" are large and deep and prove appealing locations for hydrogen production facilities. My scouting has identified the following ore, in veins and boulders on the surface:

  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Silicon
  • Silver
  • Cobalt
  • Magnesium
  • Uranium
  • Ice

Paradise: If my theory regarding the ancient civilization is true the planet known as Paradise must have been a nature preserve or some variety of holy site or some other method, whereby the planet is an idealistic Earth-Like replica. A moist Oxygen rich atmosphere produces lakes in abundance and a wide variety of ores can be found. If you are looking for a place to relax with your visor open, this planet is for you. My scouting has identified the following ore, in veins and boulders on the surface:

  • Iron
  • Nickel
  • Silicon
  • Gold
  • Sliver
  • Cobalt
  • Magnesium
  • Ice

Pertam: The last planet is an odd one, I haven't quite decided where it fits in the history of the system. Other than the trace amounts of Iron Silicon and Nickel drawn from refined stone, the only resource deposits i've seen are dense veins of Cobalt. There is enough atmospheric oxygen to allow for removing ones helmet, provided you don't mind the dry hot air. No known surface accumulations of ice have been found although it is theorized that sub surface concentrations may exist. But I haven't found any. My scouting has identified the following ore veins:

  • Cobalt
