The third planet of the Driaan System, Driaan III, is a dry, harsh yet habitable world. On a resources stand-point it seems the moon orbiting it holds more valuable ore than the sunburnt surface of the planet itself. However it has not stopped the colonisation over time of the world with several dozen scattered settlements of unaligned folk. Driaan authorities have little sway or interest in the happenings of Driaan III and the population is mostly forced to fend for their own. Such has caused less than savoury types to move in and create their own criminal or rogue paradise. Many who wish to hide or be forgotten frequent the harsh conditions of Driaan III.


Driaan itself was an idea in formation before the Federation had signed its charters in 2161 - an Australian colony vessel to settle the stars, utilising cryogenics and a Noah's Ark design philosophy. Horses, live-stock, hundreds of entire families with resources to build again coaxed into a one large colony vessel for its time and sent forth...

The colony vessel did not make it to its intended target nor did the crew wake when intended and drifted further towards Orion space. There, decades overdue to an incorrect destination they settled the Driaan System.

The fifth planet was M-class and thus first settled, however it was found that the system in all its bodies was rich in natural resources; rare and beautiful diamonds from the Fifth Planets extinct moon - exotic gases from the gas giant, abundant metals from asteroid belts. The colony thrived over the next century.
