|Planet||"Planet of the Ants"|
A heat-blasted red rock planet that has a mostly barren surface, with a variety of sentient life living in caves, crevices, and especially, underground cities. This planet is chiefly the home planet of the Myr peoples, or more properly, the Myrmedions. Technologically and culturally, the Myr seem to be roughly as developed as early 20th century Terra, comparatively dated or even ancient by galactic standards. The Red Myr and the Gold Myr, the dominant species on the planet, have been locked in a world war for seven years before First Contact, following generations of uneasy peace and short-lived conflicts.
The planet's first extraterrestrial discovery was by an ausar expedition, which eventually lead to a Joint Ausar Fleet spaceport opening on top of Gildenmere, the Gold Myr capital. With the recent involvement of the U.G.C., Xenogen Biotech, and members of the Kui-tan civilization, a cease fire has currently been issued between the two warring sides. The U.G.C. and its confederates are struggling to cement a major peace treaty between the myr factions in order to tap the planet's natural resources safely and efficiently. Until then, the "Sword of Damocles" hangs over the planet as the Confederate fleet has warned that it will bombard the planet if its ambassadors -- who are currently based on the front lines of the conflict -- are threatened.
"It's an ugly planet; a Bug planet! A planet hostile to life as we know it."

General Strategy: Most of the inhabitants of Myrellion evolved from insectoid arthropods. Their bodies are covered in a natural chitin on their arms, legs, chest, and pelvis that serve as a natural bullet resistant, flame retardant, non-conductive armor. Meaning that most Hostiles are resistant to kinetic, burning, and electrical attacks. However, all Myrellions, having evolved from R-reproductive species, are very, very, easy and often have a popular opinion to what is considered attractive and the qualities of a good breeder. The majority of enemies have static sexual preferences and are generally easily susceptible to Lust Attacks (Tease, Pheromone, Drug, Psionic). If the player's preference is to use physical attacks, then their best bet is to use Corrosive, Poison, or Freezing attacks/weapons. It should be noted though, that the Adult Cockvine, the Myr Infected Female, and the Bothrioc Quadomme are vulnerable to burning weapons due to the fire immolating their fibrous AOE abilities.
- Landmines - Lust-inducing explosives scattered around "No Myr's Land". They will wipe out shields and deal at least 1/3 damage to maximum health. There is a 3% encounter rate, with avoidance chance based on the Steele's reflexes. They can be reduced in encounter rate (down to 1%) if Steele is using the pink hoverboard, disarmed automatically if Steele is a smuggler class, or avoided entirely if Steele has a minesweeper equipped.
