Known Information: Zax-3 is a planet covered in deadly, corrosive gases. It is impossible to survive for more than a minute or two unless completely protected. The gases originate somewhere inside the planet, leaving the surface a blasted wasteland. There is, however, a massive orbital station that orbits the planet at the equator. It takes the shape of a huge ring around the planet called, appropriately, The Ring. A religious cult who used to believe the Ring was the entire world held power for a very long time before re-contact with the Imperium a generation ago. Now, the Imperium is attempting to take over after the Balkanisation of the Ring and the use of a nuclear device to destroy an entire block of the massive facility. The entire Ring is wracked in conflict, some sections are completely destroyed or open to the void. The remaining government is extremely paranoid and is fighting the Imperium along with everyone else.
