System Data[edit]

Frin-Barruc System[edit]

The primary is Frin, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.886 Sols, a mass of 0.98 Sols, and a diameter of 1.391 million km. The inner system consists of (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld – orbital position (I) is empty. (III) Barruc orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Barruc[edit]

(III) Barruc is designated the mainworld. It orbits Frin at a mean distance of 0.83 AU (124.2 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 279 days 0 hours and a rotation period of 32 hours. The axial tilt is 23 degrees. Barruc has a diameter of 10,993 km, a density of 4.35 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.68 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.66 bar and a composition of 79% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 44% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 28°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Barruc retains a single natural satellite, a cratered trace atmosphere worldlet named Chamsor:

(IIIa) Chamsor (UWP Y210000-0, orbiting at 20 Diameters/220,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 380 million km², Land surface area: 213 million km², Water surface area: 167 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Frin-Barruc System[edit]

Barruc, 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.
