Volcanic planet. It means “Infernax” in their language.


Veltora is a volatile and intense volcanic planet located in the Lentraris Star System. The planet is famous for its ever-changing landscape, dominated by molten lava flows, jagged mountains, and vast magma oceans. Though inhospitable to most life forms, Veltora is home to a unique ecosystem that thrives in extreme heat and pressure. The atmosphere is thick and smoggy, filled with ash and toxic fumes, making any form of standard aerial navigation nearly impossible.

Geographical Features

  • Pyroclast Plains: Vast expanses of hardened lava form the surface of these plains, broken up occasionally by steaming fumaroles and geysers.
  • Obsidian Peaks: These towering mountains are composed almost entirely of volcanic glass, making them both beautiful and treacherous.
  • Inferna Sea: A giant “ocean” of molten magma, covering nearly a third of the planet’s surface. Various isles of hardened lava make up the “archipelago” within this sea.
  • Sulfur Springs: Hot springs scattered across the planet, usually concentrated around the bases of dormant volcanoes. These springs harbor some of the only liquid water on [[Veltora]] but are highly acidic.

Flora and Fauna

  • Flamefern: These plants have metallic leaves to reflect heat and a root system that taps into underground cool spots.
  • Lavaworms: Serpentine creatures that swim through molten magma as if it were water.
  • Pyrohawks: Avian species adapted to navigate the smoggy atmosphere, with eyes capable of infrared vision.


The Veltorians are a hardy, isolationist people who’ve adapted to their extreme environment. One of the largest villages is Tunoun.

Cultural Importance

The planet serves as a rite of passage for racers who dare to traverse its perilous terrains, testing their skills to the limit. Surviving a race on Veltora is considered a badge of honor, earning respect throughout the galaxy. Many are tempted by the high rewards tied to Veltora’s dangerous courses, but only a few are able to claim them.
