Independent of any single government or confederation,
Daegox 4 serves as a planetwide prison for hundreds of
thousands of the galaxy’s criminals. Sprawling buildings of
cells, with varying sizes and amenities depending on inmates’
crimes, blanket one of the planet’s two continents, and the worst
offenders inhabit a high-security complex at its center. The
planet’s other landmass boasts lush forests and bountiful
prairies. Here, low-risk prisoners are allowed to roam
freely. At the luxurious continent’s center, near a broad
river, is the Mountain. This imposing structure covering
hundreds of acres is the administrative hub of the place.
The real power behind the prison-planet, however, is the
Daegox Corporation, run by a mysterious humanoid race
that has so far refused to reveal its home world. The
corporation’s leaders orbit the planet in a ship called
Skywatcher, and they accept prisoners from any
government they judge legitimate—for a fee, of
course. Some speculate that the corporation
is the entirety of the aliens’ race and that
the planet itself is their home world, but this
remains uncorroborated.

It’s not only cells and the lack of advanced
transport that hold prisoners captive on Daegox 4.
An invisible bubble surrounds the entire planet like
a one-way membrane. The only reliable method for
leaving the planet lies deep within the Mountain,
where a magitech gate opens onto one of a dozen
linked worlds. The Daegox staff who control the
Mountain claim no prisoner has ever escaped, but
legends abound about one known as the Wren
who is said to have recently found a way.
The planet is mostly self-sufficient, and the
Daegox Corporation receives most of its money via
prisoner admission fees. Yet a certain amount of the
company’s funds come from prisoners bartering with
their captors, offering refined planetary resources—and,
some whisper, expert assassins and suicide soldiers—in
exchange for items and information from outside.
Fortunately for the Daegox guards, the planet’s
atmosphere carries a high concentration of a spore—
possibly developed by the corporation—that produces a
calming effect, making non-Daegox creatures docile and
agreeable. As far as the corporation reports, largescale
confrontations and prisoner rebellions are
practically unheard of.
