Tallas Solar System
Lunar Underground Mass Population Station
The Lunar Underground, situated in Alix, the second moon of Kuran, is a massive roundhouse that serves as the entire core of the moon itself. It is comprised of over a dozen LUMPS, each servicing a different Landline route to a planet or point of interest. These sub-stations are mobile, rotating as incoming LANTrans trains dock briefly between destinations.
Other Heavenly Bodies
Besides the Planets, LUMPS and the star Daethys, the Desire, many other locations such as moons, asteroids and rouge planets are strewn about the Tallas System.

Tallas, simply put, would still be the backwoods hole it had been for much of it’s history if it were not for the Landlines. They are an engineering marvel that allows direct transit between planets – without the need of a spaceship. Massive magnetic rail lines capable of transporting millions at once sit atop triangular interlocking beams. Beneath the rails, the lines are complete with roads for conventional travel, waterways, service tunnels, power lines, sewers, boomtowns and anything else under the sun – connecting the major areas of the Tallas Solar System.
All major lines are wholly owned and operated by the megacorporation LANTrans.
