System Data[edit]

Saludi-Arisada System[edit]

The primary is Saludi, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0136 Sols, a mass of 0.3626 Sols, and a diameter of 551,000 km. (I-I) a vacuum worldlet, (I-II) Arisada, designated the mainworld, and (II) a sparse stony planetoid belt form the inner part of the outer system. Orbital positions (III) through (VII) are unavailable due to the presence of the companion star. (VIII-I) a ringed large gas giant, and (VIII-II) a large gas giant form the outer part of the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Procon Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Procon, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Saludi at a mean distance of 1.72 AU (orbital position (V), 257.3 million km) and has an orbital period of 3 years 273 days. It has a luminosity of 0.002 Sols, a mass of 0.104 Sols, and a diameter of 145,000 km.(I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (III-I) a small gas giant, and (III-II) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-II) Arisada[edit]

(I-II) Arisada is designated the mainworld. It orbits Saludi at a mean distance of 0.29 AU (43.4 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 94 days 17 hours: it is tidally locked to Saludi. The axial tilt is 4 degrees. Arisada has a diameter of 4,447 km, a density of 6.21 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.39 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Saludi cause regular geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.22 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 19% abiotic oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 37% of the surface is covered in sheets of water-ice and seas of water kept liquid by geothermal heat generated by radioactives present in the lithosphere. Mean surface temperature: -46°C. The climate is rated as Cold and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is sluggish and minor weather systems driven by the star drift across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 62 million km², Land surface area: 37 million km², Water surface area: 25 million km².

  • Oxygen contained deep within the world's interior is released by outgassing and serves to renew the atmosphere: it continuously reacts with surface materials and other atmospheric gases, gradually reducing the percentage of oxygen in the air.
  • Arisada is a Twilight Zone World.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Saludi-Arisada System[edit]

The large gas giant lying in orbital position (VIII-I) (within the outer part of the outer system) has jovionoid lifeforms within its atmosphere.

No other world in the system is known to have native life.

Procon Subsystem[edit]

No world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Arisada has a poor quality starport.

  • A Class-D Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many skilled personnel who can perform minor repair work.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class very rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World technology level[edit]

Arisada possesses a Technology Level of TL–8.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics, improved telephones, and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Improved geothermal and improved batteries.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Advanced automobiles.
    • Water: Triphibians and early artificial gills.
    • Air: Improved helicopters and hypersonic jets.
    • Space: Space shuttles, early space stations, and improved interplanetary spacecraft.

World government[edit]

Arisada has no well-defined government structure.

  • In many cases, tribal, clan or family bonds predominate.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Pantocracy or Chaos.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
