Dryell I-VI

The Dryell solar system in a system containing six planets, all with relatively similar orbits and year lengths. The planets are known only as Dryell I-VI, numbered from the centre of the system outward. The system was developed as a mining resource for the Imperium. Each planet is home to a number of mining colonies, and the resident populations are almost completely labourers.

Dryell II and VI are have relatively small amounts of useful minerals. They are the least developed planets in the system.

Dryell V has been almost completely mined and abandoned. It is predicted that Dryell I will follow suit within the next 200 years.

Etymology:

It is suggested that the name Dryell is a bastardization of the word ‘drill’.
