Sama is an L-type planet situated in the Silver Halo Galaxy nearly 900 million light years away from the Milky Way. It was once the home world and capital world of the Samian Hivemind, which existed from 6500 BCE to 2500 BCE.
Also known as RS 0-6-60852-657-377-7-1900540-169 4 in version 0.990.
The planet hasn't always had small seas. Soon after its formation, oceans formed, but due to a scorching temperature, it covered both day and night sides. Millions of years later, the night side cooled down and the water froze over, creating a giant ice sheet.
Unlike most other planets, Sama rarely experiences mass extinctions. The cloud of comets in the star system's outer region depleted over billions of years, and most of the comets collided with the three inner planets. Volcanoes rarely erupted, but kept at a rate that stabilised the global temperature. The benefits this brought meant that the original lifeforms still survive today, although due to evolution, it takes on vastly different forms now.
About three million years ago, the Samians first appeared. Originating in the southern hemisphere, they migrated into all corners of the planet as the global climate oscillated. Their society became a matriarchy and the first signs of capitalism emerged soon afterwards. Before 6500 BCE, the Samians were ruled by dozens of kingdoms and empires.
In 6500 BCE, the Kingdoms came together and negotiated the Samian Union Act, the first legislation of the Samian Hivemind, which united all of the kingdoms into a global economic and military union. They launched their space program soon afterwards and explored their entire star system within half a century.
The surface lacks large oceans of water. Instead, they collect into numerous lakes and small seas. Exotic microbes thrive on the shorelines, which power an animal's ability to heal wounds. Early hunter-gatherer Samians built their tribes near rivers and coasts, as they provided a sustainable source of food and water.
It appears mainly as an barren sand dune, but there is life here nonetheless. Earlier in its history, the sea levels were higher, creating large oceans, but as the eons went by, the water receded and sunk into the sea bed. Many lakes still exist, but the landscape around them is wet and moist from the ancient oceans.
