Andomar is a rare, carbon planet which orbits the pulsar Dulor.


After the Second Sinister War, the Drallan Federal Monarchy began to explore and chart out multiple systems to mine them for resources to rebuild themselves. When Andomar was first colonized in the Fourth Age of the Vaikan, there was a standoff between Yallvus and Malin. This was known as the Andomar Cold War. There were threats among one another with antimatter weapons as claims over certain regions of the planet were disputed.

The ruins of the DFM were renovated by the Karalian Empire, and the planet was resettled. However, this resettlement was short-lived as the Eye of Uszaroth supernova rendered the area completely inhospitable.

Physical characteristics

Andomar is rich with carbon and poor in oxygen. The sky is full of ionized gas emitting red, blue and yellow. At four billion years old, the planet is tidally locked. The day side is incredibly hot with a slowly eroding surface while the night side is obscured in permanent darkness. Even so, the dark side is a scorching 700 K.

Andomar was formed sometime after Dulor went supernova. It has a dusty, carbide crust on the surface and a kilometer thick layer of diamond. Below, the planet has a carbide mantle and an iron-nickel core.  The diamond layer is at an easy to reach 5 kilometers from the planet's crust.


While the radiation from Dulor and the high gravity makes Andomar uninviting, the presence of diamond and nanodiamond nuggets below the planet's crust makes it extremely valuable. The Diamond Rush of Andomar was a famous event that would later lead to the Andomar Cold War when provinces in the Drallan Federal Monarchy begun threatening one another with antimatter weapons when claims over certain regions of the planet were being disputed.

While Andomar also has traces of Dragonrock in the core, this substance remains unexploited as its location is not considered nearly as cost efficient as Krizaelius. The kilometer thick layer of diamond has been the planet's primary attraction.


Like Krizaelius, Andomar is dotted with mines that reach down into the diamond layer. The day side remains unexploited as it was not practical for the Drallan Federal Monarchy to settle it, but the night side is packed to the brink with mining facilities. From there, large underground networks and factories extend throughout most of the planet. Orbital civilian establishments remain high above the planet in the night side.
