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

System Data[edit]

Yoro-Goyaren System[edit]

The primary is Yoro, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.216 Sols, a mass of 0.672 Sols, and a diameter of 978,000 km. (I-I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, and (I-II) Goyaren, designated the mainworld, have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (II-I) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (II-II) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (IV) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (V) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (VI) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VII) a large gas giant, (VIII-I) a small gas giant, (VIII-II) a small ice giant, (IX) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (X) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-II) Goyaren[edit]

(I-II) Goyaren is designated the mainworld. It orbits Yoro at a mean distance of 0.26 AU (38.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 59 days 2 hours: it is tidally locked to Yoro. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Goyaren has a diameter of 8,207 km, a density of 3.89 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.45 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Yoro cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.63 bar and a composition of 84% nitrogen (N2), 14% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 21% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 22°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the seas drive across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 212 million km², Land surface area: 167 million km², Water surface area: 45 million km².

  • Goyaren 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]

Yoro-Goyaren System[edit]

Goyaren, the mainworld, has primitive native life, consisting almost entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in most ecological niches. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II-I) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting almost entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in most ecological niches. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II-II) (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]

Goyaren 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]

Goyaren possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion, and the most fundamental atomic energy.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ground cars or automobiles and tracked vehicles.
    • Water: Large ships and submersibles with steel hulls.
    • Air: Early aircraft including seaplanes and very early unmanned rockets.

World government[edit]

Goyaren 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.
