Kessel: Planet Information


A largely inhospitable and desolate Outer Rim world, Kessel has an abundance of profitable and unique glitterstim spice. In order to support life on Kessel, mining operations have established air-producing factories capable of creating a thin atmosphere. The mines themselves are located far below Kessel’s barren surface. Prisoners are often forced to labor ceaselessly in the dark mines, where they can fall prey to energy spiders and other dangers.
