OTHER NOTES:
dry climate; surface is devoid of open water although some underground channels exist, mostly around equator at 54 degree angle from actual equator.

Vegetation is sparse and must be carefully cultivated while the majority of the surface is rocky flatlands with a few mountains. Blakkarrion architecture is typically of rock cut hollow and rounded.

Single moon is Pinn

Rabshduclos is the second largest city on Blaakos, used primarily as a spaceport for non-Blakkarrions.
