Stars Without Number
Originally a barren, unsettled planet, Independence was settled as the Scream hit during a massive battle in its orbit. As the various ships crashed on the surface, much of the worst wreckage settled into a large sprawling wasteland of dead ships and radioactive fallout.
Today, few people venture out to the wastelands. and fewer make it back alive. In addition to wreckage there are rumors of monsters and still-live weapons, and a secret research facility hidden somewhere in the depths.
