Discovery Date: 2X1X
Mass: 3.1 trillion teratons
Class VIV Planet
Atmosphere: Nitrogen, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, and Hydrogen.
Distinct Features:Large glacial plains, frozen water spires and deep glacial revenes that stretch beneth the hollow ice.
Arcterra, though frozen and barren from the surface, is actually honeycombed with intertwining tunnels just underneath it's glacial surface. Due to natural phenomenon, hundreds of thousands of tunnels now intertwine each other in a tapestry of shafts. It is believed these were carved out by escaping thermal gasses from the planet's core. These channels and tunnels are the mainstay support of what little life the planet has to offer, as well as where the reminants of the Alimbic culture may be found.
The frozen wastes have made for equally hospitable lifeforms as well. Many scientists believe that they are the reminants of creatures that once exsisted in a much warmer climate in the planet's late history. Though this has not been proven, the mainstay of the life found on Arcterra tends to stay within traveling range of the thermal vents. No large mammals may be found here, as it is believed their warm blooded metabolism would not be able to support itself in the nutrient=lacking enviornment. Life has seemed to favored insectoid bodied creatures, and as such life has evolved to deal with the frozen enviornements as such.
