Fresh Air Resort
In a galaxy of Agricultural marvel, Argyra is truly the gem of the proverbial sea. Known for its exportation of grain, and bounty from the sea, the planet has developed an attitude of relaxation and laidbackness. A reality of plenty, no one has to beg or plead for a simple meal… in such a world why would you ever rush things? Why run when you can walk and for that matter… why would you walk if you can simply sit on the front porch.
This facade has created an illusion of laziness, which is not grounded in the reality of the planet. The success of the world has been made on the backs of hard-working individuals, and only the resort territories can pride itself in spending its time doing nothing and generally just enjoying their time.
Coral and Stone art is popular amongst the local population along with carvings of bone and other natural materials. Such pieces of art take center stage in festivals year round which provide both entertainment to the locals and an attraction furthering the tourism industry.
Technology: Slightly below Galactic standard.
The planet of Argyra was founded by Shawda Ubb in the early days of the republic. The toad like species found the humid climate and many wet marshy islands to be ideal for them to make their home. It wasn’t long after when other aquatic species came to call the planet home setting up basic cities and infrastructure on the ocean floors. There they mined what little mineral they needed to get by and create their homes both on the surface and below and created large farms and communities.
As the planet grew others came with more idea’s on the planets development. Humans with ambition realised that idyllic little islands could provide for excellent resorts and so began a program of expansion for the planet. Soon it was a well known vacation world on the rim. Humans flocked to the world and with them came twi’lek entertainers and a vast array of other species. This immigrant population quickly proved their worth bringing in a wealth of tourist credits to the planet. It didn’t take long before the majority of the planets economy and infrastructure was tied up in tourism.
Later in the time of the Krayt Empire after the near genocidal destruction at Dac both Mon Calamari and Quarren alike came in droves to the planet making a living however how they could and attempting to create a new life for themselves.
The planet remained mostly intact after the Gulag plague ripped through the galaxy, although for the obvious reason tourism saw a decrease and there was many deaths, but do to the rural lifestyle of the main populations the plague didn’t spread as much as it did on many other worlds.
Upon the galactic reset they once again started to see a rise in tourism, but this was only a passing fancy.
On a fateful day a false moon eclipsed their star shrouding the planet in darkness. Conquerors had come to Argyra. A massive asteroid, Asteroid M, brought into orbit. It was no ordinary celestial object but rather a massive factory complete with facilities and shipyards hollowed into the very core of the asteroid. Droid armies descended on the planet taking control of the peaceful inhabitants and forcing them to work. Soon after the population was forced into work camps mining and creating materials for a massive endeavor, the creation of a super star destroyer.
