Beasen is a preindustrial water world.

  • Its surface is 90% or more covered in an ocean of water.
  • The inhabitants of this world live on the roughly 10% of exposed land mass, in underwater colonies, on city ships, or similar arrangements.
  • As a preindustrial world, this planet cannot yet manufacture enough high-technology resources to support a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Abidal Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Trallis-Beasen System[edit]

The primary is Trallis, an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 2.126 Sols, a mass of 1.144 Sols and a diameter of 1.639 million km. It has a distant companion, Gorph, lying approximately 2100 AU distant. The inner system consists of (I, III, IV) three small rocky vacuum worlds – orbital position (II) is empty. (V) Beasen is designated the mainworld and orbits within the habitable zone. The outer zone consists of (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VII, VIII) two large gas giants, (IX) a small gas giant, and (X) a small vacuum iceworld. Most of the worlds in the outer system retain satellites.

Gorph subsystem[edit]

The companion is Gorph, an ordinary red subwarf star, lying approximately 2100 AU from the primary. It has a luminosity of 0.001 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols and a diameter of 116,000 km. (I) a sparse icy planetoid Belt, (II) a small gas giant, and (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer zone. Both of the worlds retain families of satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(V) Beasen[edit]

(V) Beasen is designated the mainworld. It orbits Trallis at a mean distance of 1.6 AU (238.7 million km), it has an orbital period of 645 days 22 hours and a rotation period of 24.75 hours. The axial tilt is 13.5 degrees. Beasen has a diameter of 13,576 km, a density of 5.91 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.14 G. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a surface pressure of 2.08 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% argon, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmosphere is tainted with pollens originating from aquatic flora. Approximately 98% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: 9°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems, driven by the star and the oceans, sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal and weather patterns follow regular cycles during the local year.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 579 million km², Land surface area: 11 million km², Water surface area: 568 million km². The Mare Infinitum, the Endless Sea, is divided into a number of different pelagic zones. The ocean is shallower around the equator, particularly around the Treacherous Sea and the Wells of Light regions: a series of large islands and archipelagos, known as the Fingers of Shannar, straddle the equator and form the only major bodies of dry land on the surface. The waters are deepest around the temperate latitudes. Small icecaps are located at the poles.

Native lifeforms[edit]

Beasen has extensive, abundant native life, with organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions power the process of atmospheric renewal. native life. Sea-mats, vast floating tangles of aquatic flora.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Beasen has a routine quality starport.

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

World technology level[edit]

Beasen possesses a Technology Level of TL–9.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fusion power.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ultra high-speed trains and early grav vehicles.
    • Water: High efficiency sailcraft, multihulled seacraft, improved artificial gears.
    • Air: Tiltrotorcraft, exotic VTOL's, PARWIG, and rocket-assisted suborbitals.
    • Space: SSTO spacecraft, early military spacecraft, and interstellar STL starships
    • FTL: Prototype Jump Drive-1.

World government[edit]

Beasen has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
