Fyce is an icy, low-population world, with a population less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

System Data[edit]

Aarin-Fyce System[edit]

The primary is Aarin, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0202 Sols, a mass of 0.3942 Sols, and a diameter of 604,000 km. The outer system consists of (I) a large gas giant, (II) Hobart, an exotic atmosphere radworld: (IIa) Fyce is its only satellite and is designated the mainworld, (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (IV) a vacuum iceworld, (V) a small gas giant, (VI) a small ice giant, and (VII) a sparse icy planetoid belt. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

(II) Hobart[edit]

(II) Hobart (UWP Y6A0000-0) is categorised as a radworld and orbits Aarin at a mean distance of 0.42 AU (62.8 million km), within the outer system. It has an orbital period of 158 days 8 hours and a rotation period of 18 hours 45 minutes. The axial tilt is 16 degrees. Hobart has a diameter of 9,752 km, a density of 5.71 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.79 G. The world is geologically very active. Its atmosphere is rated as Exotic, with a mean surface pressure of 1.44 bar and a composition of 96% carbon dioxide (CO2), 3% nitrogen (N2) and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), azane (NH3), carbon monoxide (CO), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. It has no hydrosphere. The surface and atmosphere of Hobart are extremely radioactive with emission rates exceeding 100 rads per hour. Mean surface temperature: 12°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems, driven by the star, sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IIa) Fyce[edit]

(IIa) Fyce is the only satellite of Hobart and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 12 diameters (117,000 km), with an orbital period of 4 days 23 hours: it is tidally locked to Hobart. It has an axial tilt of 2 degrees. Fyce has a diameter of 3,013 km, a density of 4.88 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.21 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Hobart cause regular geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Trace, with a mean surface pressure of 0.02 bar and a composition of 99% carbon dioxide (CO2) and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon monoxide (CO), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 12% of the surface is covered in sheets of water-ice. Mean surface temperature: -112°C. The world has a static climate and no seasons.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 29 million km², Land surface area: 25.5 million km², Ice surface area: 3.5 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Fyce 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]

Fyce 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]

Fyce has no well-defined government structure.

  • In many cases, tribal, clan or family bonds predominate.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Pantocracy or Chaos.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
