|Star System||Barren Hollow|
Barren Hollow is a planet that is home to the Fracturemen. It is a free use planet.
Why the Barren Hollow is named as it is remains one of the greatest modern mysteries of the galactic history, albeit a fairly mundane one. The planet is a lush and thriving paradise of dense forests and exotic oceans with amazing biodiversity. It is unclear whether the planet was named by its natives or by external discoverers, but the Fracturemen name of the planet translates to Barren Hollow all the same.
The 'Hollow' part of the name, however, has a fairly obvious connotation. Barren Hollow is a ringworld- a planet-sized ring of rock possessing a gravitational pull either under its mass or facsimiled by way of generating centripetal force. Barren Hollow's gravity is formed under Centripetal force, creating a ring of life on the inside of the ring. Some species can survive on the outer layers of the ring too, however. The planet's axis of rotation is pointed directly towards its local star, the far side is far below freezing temperature and is home to no permanent inhabitants, though some species do travel here to rest or sleep in safety as the sun-facing side has no night time.
Many Sentientsapiens are shocked to learn that the planet is full of life, and will often remark that this was once not the case. However, this was always the case.
