System Data[edit]

Longine-Galamid System[edit]

The primary is Longine, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.21 Sols, a mass of 1.04 Sols, and a diameter of 1.433 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, and (III) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (IV) Galamid orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) an exotic atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) a large gas giant, and (VII) a ringed large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Rosamind Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Rosamind, a dim red subdwarf star lying approximately 4,930 AU from Longine. It has a luminosity of 0.00103 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols, and a diameter of 109,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, and (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Neither world retains satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Galamid[edit]

(IV) Galamid is designated the mainworld. It orbits Longine at a mean distance of 1.04 AU (155.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 1 year 15 days and a rotation period of 25 hours. The axial tilt is 11 degrees. Galamid has a diameter of 8,207 km, a density of 3.43 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.40 G. The world is geologically inert. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.68 bar and a composition of 79% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 73% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 5°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the oceans roll across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 212 million km², Water surface area: 155 million km², Land surface area: 57 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Longine-Galamid System[edit]

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

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

Rosamind Subsystem[edit]

No world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

World starport[edit]

Galamid 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]

Galamid 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]

Galamid 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.
