Before the terraforming reconstructed its surface, Yridia III was a rocky, barren world, uninhabitable to most life. When the Empire first stumbled upon the Yridia system, the planet was useless to them; one of many they didn't bother to initially report. What they overlooked, however, was the planet's potential. The founders of House Tarentum saw that potential and commissioned a largest scale eco-transmutation to rival that of the efforts on Telos. Yridia IIIâ€™s barren rocky surface was terraformed into the most beautiful and ecologically diverse planet within two kiloparsecs of the local star systems. The world is home to a wide variety of terrains, from vast plains spanning tens of millions of square kilometers to the high mountains and their thousands of linking lakes and rivers emptying into a great ocean. The Great Basin, a crater remnant found in the Southern Hemisphere is one of the few original features from pre-terraforming times.
