System Data[edit]

Alzana-Arodir System[edit]

The primary is Alzana, a red giant star. It has a luminosity of 2485 Sols, a mass of 8.3 Sols, and a diameter of 409.072 million km – the corona of the star extends to 1.37 AU, just within orbital position (V). The inner system consists of (V) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VIII) a vacuum inner world, and (IX) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world – orbital positions (I) through (IV) lie within the star and orbital positions (VI) and (VII) are empty. (X-I) an exotic atmosphere hospitable world and (X-II) Arodir, designated the mainworld, have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (XI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld forms the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld data[edit]

(X-I) Arodir[edit]

(X-I) Arodir is designated the mainworld. It orbits Alzana at a mean distance of 51.2 AU (7.66 billion km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 127 years 60 days and a rotation period of 46 hours. The axial tilt is 38 degrees. Arodir has a diameter of 7,024 km, a density of 4.88 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.49 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.87 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 20% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 56% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 8°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and experiences major seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas surge across the globe.


Arodir retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Pashan:

(X-Ia) Pashan (UWP Y100000-0, orbiting at 15 Diameters/105,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 155 million km², Water surface area: 87 million km², Land surface area: 68 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Alzana-Arodir System[edit]

The very warm exotic atmosphere hospitable world lying in orbital position (X-I) has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms with bizarre biochemistries inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

Arodir, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

World starport[edit]

Arodir 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]

Arodir possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion, and the most fundamental atomic energy.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ground cars or automobiles and tracked vehicles.
    • Water: Large ships and submersibles with steel hulls.
    • Air: Early aircraft including seaplanes and very early unmanned rockets.

World government[edit]

Arodir has a Civil Service Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies employing individuals selected for their expertise.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.
