Durt is an agricultural, nonindustrial, and very rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world. However, a rich world like this one can afford the cost of importation.
  • This is a rich world with a prosperous and thriving world economy.
  • Its economy and population are growing and living conditions are expected to incrementally rise barring outside forces. The world will grow even quicker when its industrial sector begins to develop.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a part of the Yimin Jiti in the Veesene Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Erth-Durt System[edit]

The primary is Erth, 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 (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) exotic atmosphere radworld, and (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (IV) Durt orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (VII) a ringed large gas giant, (VIII) an exotic atmosphere radworld, and (IX) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Durt[edit]

(III) Durt is designated the mainworld. It orbits Erth at a mean distance of 0.73 AU (109.2 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 225 days 9 hours and a rotation period of 27.5 hours. The axial tilt is 21 degrees. Durt has a diameter of 9,517 km, a density of 5.11 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.69 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 0.79 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen, 22% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 54% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 17°C. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Satellite[edit]

Durt retains a single natural satellite, a vacuum worldlet named Clod:

(IIIa) Clod (UWP Y200000-0, orbiting at 35 Diameters/333,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 285 million km², Water surface area: 154 million km², Land surface area: 131 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

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