Once a planet rich with life, Ergoa is now a post-apocalyptic shadow of what it once was. Thousands of years ago, many different species of life lived here and flourished, though through their evolutionary advances, they slowly and carelessly poisoned their world and over time wars broke out and global warming made the planet uninhabitable for most living things. A run away green house effect began and now the planet is barren of life with acidic oceans and an atmosphere with little to no oxygen left. The planet is surrounded by rings of ancient debris, tiny fragments of the once great space stations, ships and satellites that had existed.
