->Hoth is far from a soft assignment, though. Daylight temperatures average only -32C even in the temperate zone near the planetary equator. At night, temperatures can plunge another twenty to thirty degrees, made worse by high-velocity winds tearing across the tundra. Few life-forms can survive in this environment, and those that do survive are not... pleasant.

You don't want to get caught in the rain and you'll need to work for your food, but generally it's pretty easy living on those worlds.\\
Anything above Class Ten is considered a deathworld. Deathworlds have things like high gravity, poisonous plants and critters, lots of carnivores, nasty little microorganisms, natural disasters like earthquakes or volcanoes, acid rain, high background radiation, stuff like that.

Added DiffLines:

->Life runs rampant on Venus, contaminating all imagined boundaries of season, species or ecosystem. The dominant landscape here is a cross between a [[HungryJungle rainforest]], a [[GardenOfEvil greenhouse]], and a dinosaur movie dangerous enough to consume ''Film/JurassicPark'' in one rapacious feast. Nicknamed "Bygone Venus," this realm of Venusian reality has infected and spread across the planet's [[SpiritWorld Umbrascape]]. It's lifeforms have become virulent. Nature can be beautiful, but when you can't identify the poisonous animal that just injected you with a paralytic poison, it can get nasty, too. The Venusian Umbrascape is more than a greenhouse - it's a green hell.
->Mold spores and mildew creep into the unprotected equipment of Venusian visitors. Unprepared wanderers have drowned or gone mad from [[PerpetualStorm rainstorms that seem to (and perhaps do) last for eternity]]. For [[BoldExplorer Void Engineers]], Technocrat technology can mean the difference between life and death.

<STOP,> thought [[EldritchAbomination Mínagaleh]], and, indeed, she had to fight the impulse to stop right then and there. But she didnít.\\
Within seconds, she saw a similar but different Earth below her, and a different solar system and set of stars about her. She felt the bee-stinging of contramatter particles against her body, and knew if she remained more than a few seconds here, she would be in more danger, perhaps, than Mínagaleh could offer.\\
Below her was the anti-matter Earth of the universe of Qward.\\
<YOU ARE FOOD,> thought Mínagaleh, his bulk coursing towards her. <YOU WILL BECOME ME.>\\

The glowering eye of the star bears down on the planetís surface, which begins to heat up with the day.
