Bular is a poor, non-agricultural and nonindustrial hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society.
  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Farin Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System Data[edit]

Bastra-Bular System[edit]

The primary is Bastra, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.034 Sols, a mass of 0.457 Sols and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I) Bular orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (IV) a small gas giant, (V) a large gas giant, (VI) a dense icy planetoid belt, (VII) a ringed large gas giant, (VIII) a ringed small ice giant, and (IX) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Bular[edit]

(I) Bular is designated the mainworld. It orbits Bastra at a mean distance of 0.19 AU (28.4 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 44 days 18 hours: it is tidally locked to the star. The axial tilt is 5 degrees. Bular has a diameter 7,793 km, a density of 4.98 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.41 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.39 bar and a composition of 87% nitrogen (N2), 12% oxygen (O2), 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 24% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: 22°C. The atmosphere is sluggish and weak weather systems powered by the star crawl across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 191 million km², Land surface area: 145 million km², Water surface area: 46 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Bular, the mainworld, has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. Bular's warm seas teem with primitive life: they are gradually thickening the atmosphere and changing its composition.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Bular 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]

Bular possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fission power generation, advanced water and wind generation of electricity.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, early ATV's, and dedicated AFV's.
    • Water: Amphibious vehicles, improved submersibles, and early SCUBA gear.
    • Air: Early jet aircraft and rotorcraft VTOL's.
    • Space: Early unmanned rocket delivery systems and early manned orbital rockets.

World government[edit]

Bular 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.
