Fylora is a pre-agricultural and nonindustrial world lacking adequate development for its economy to become prosperous.

  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Nisor Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Kearsage-Fylora System[edit]

The primary is Kearsage, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.42 Sols, a mass of 0.825 Sols, and a diameter of 1.263 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Fylora orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (V) a small gas giant, (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (VII) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (VIII) a ringed large gas giant, (IX) a small ice giant, and (X) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Fylora[edit]

(III) Fylora is designated the mainworld. It orbits Kearsage at a mean distance of 0.65 AU (97.2 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 210 days 18 hours and a rotation period of 23 hours. The axial tilt is 22 degrees. Fylora has a diameter of 8,237 km, a density of 4.97 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.58 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.79 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by allergenic spores and pollens of organic origin. Approximately 49% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.25m. Mean surface temperature: 17°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Prime and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the seas work across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Fylora retains a single natural satellite, a vacuum worldlet named Krass:

(IIIa) Krass (UWP Y100000-0, orbiting at 20 Diameters/165,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 213 million km², Land surface area: 108 million km², Water surface area: 105 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Kearsage-Fylora System[edit]

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

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Fylora 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]

Fylora possesses a Technology Level of TL–4.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone and telegraphs, widespread printing.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Trains and early automobiles.
    • Water: Clippers and steam ships.
    • Air: Dirigibles, balloons, very basic rockets.

World government[edit]

Fylora has a Self-Perpetuating Oligarchy government.

  • It is a government by a restricted minority, with little or no input from the masses.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
