Gorine is a poor, low-population hellworld with a population less than 10,000 sophonts struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

System Data[edit]

Chisholm-Gorine System[edit]

The primary is Chisholm, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I-I) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (I-II) Gorine, designated the mainworld, have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (II-I) a very thin atmosphere radworld, (II-II) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (III) a large gas giant, and (IV) a ringed large gas giant form the inner part of the outer system. Orbital positions (V) through (X) are unavailable due to the presence of the companion star. (XI) a sparse icy planetoid belt orbits the system's barycenter and forms the outer part of the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

  • The star experiences periodic flare activity.
  • All of the worlds in the system have eccentric orbits that correspond to the relative position of Darley, the companion star.

Darley Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Darley, a tiny dwarf star lying approximately 11.5 AU (orbital position (VIII), 1.72 billion km) from Chisholm. It has a luminosity of 0.00003 Sols, a mass of 1.11 Sols, and a diameter of 8,450 km. (I-I) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (I-II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (II-I) a small gas giant, and (II-II) a large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

  • Chisholm and Darley orbit a barycenter lying at approximately 6.8 AU (orbital position (VII), 1.02 billion km) and have an orbital period around one another of 14 years 60 days.

Mainworld data[edit]

(I-II) Gorine[edit]

(I-II) Gorine is designated the mainworld. It orbits Chisholm at a mean distance of 0.34 AU (50.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 107 days 1 hour: it is tidally locked to Chisholm. The axial tilt is 3 degrees. Gorine has a diameter of 4,850 km, a density of 5.66 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.39 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Chisholm cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.16 bar and a composition of 88% nitrogen (N2), 9% abiotic oxygen (O2), 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% xenon (Xe), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen and the relatively high levels of background radiation: emission rates exceed 10 rads per hour. Approximately 18% of the surface is covered in lakes of liquid water and sheets of water-ice: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: -25°C. The atmosphere is slow and minor weather systems driven by the star and the seas drift across the globe. The climate is rated as Cold and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 74 million km², Land surface area: 61 million km², Water surface area: 13 million km².

  • The oxygen in the atmosphere is abiotic in origin, produced by the photocatalytic reaction between UV energy radiating from the star and titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is found in surface minerals such as ilmenite.
  • Gorine is a Twilight Zone World.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Chisholm-Gorine System[edit]

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

Darley Subsystem[edit]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Gorine 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]

Gorine 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]

Gorine has a Corporate or Company government.

  • Government is by a company managerial elite and citizens are typically company employees.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
