On the 9th planet in the Dural System,Deep in the Lukas Nebula,lies the world of Moore’s Retreat,first settled by Sarah Moore and her family just after the Galston Uprising.
It is a beautiful planet,and for much of the year pretty quiet.Much of the time taken up with such pursuits as gardening,art and photography.
But every year in the autunm when Galston Minor rises and brings about the storm of Fire Astroids,this is a time of much work and pleasure.
For with the coming of the astroids the Hot Fire Fungi Mini Mushe’s begin to grow,and it is only after 5 nights that the harvest starts.The harvest as to be done by hand,every mushi must be hand picked between the hours of 2-5 am,the dew can never to allowed to touch them.
Even the children help with the picking.
For once dew as touched the Fungi they become blackened and are highly poisonous.
Otherwise the are a great delicacy,this harvest is the very lifeblood of this world,with the immense profits the population can spend the rest of the year pursuing their hobbies.
Here we see the Fire Mushi’s growing even within walking distance of the Luna Park Towers which is where you go to buy Mini Mushes in downtown Kenthurst.
In the background we see the Sandpiper Hill’s, and of course Galston Minor.
