Era: New Era

Jae Tellona is a rich, desert world with a shirt-sleeve atmosphere but no free-standing water. The system has a population between 1 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting, but possessing adequate wealth to compensate. Government control of this world is by an external military force. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Rhylanor Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector. This world has a nearby Regency Naval Base, capable of handling warships.


  • This world has alternate orthographies of:
    • Jae Tallona
    • Jae Taellona

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Jae Tellona is the only inhabited world of the Jae Tellona system. In addition to the mainworld, the system contains one large gas giant with an impressive satellite system of its own, two "linked" small gas giants, an asteroid belt, and a number of unremarkable planetoid–sized bodies scattered in between. [2]

System Data[edit]

The bright supergiant star Deneb is visible in Jae Tellona's sky even during the daytime.

Mainworld Data[edit]

The Jae Tellonan year is approximately 2.2 standard years in duration, and the world has a 25° axial tilt relative to the plane of its orbit. A Jae Tellonan day is approximately 36 hours long in the mid–latitudes, but days at the polar regions are a little over an Imperial Standard year long. Jae Tellona has a diameter of 8,109 km, and a surface gravity of 0.625g. [2]

Depending on latitude, temperatures on Jae Tellona can be torrid and even deadly. Jae Tellona has no free standing water at all, and most off-worlders find the environment outside the underground complexes uncomfortable. Crossing the desert without a vehicle or environment suit is often lethal. Those not acclimated to the harsh wind and the lack of water-vapor in the air discover that exposed skin chaffs and blisters, often causing injury before the afflicted is even aware of the problem. Dehydration and heat stroke often follow if exposure occurs during the daylight hours. [2]

Jae Tellona boasts a powerful magnetic field at its poles, approximately two orders of magnitude greater than the magnetic field of Terra, which causes the night months to often be lit by spectacular auroras. The aurora-light is often so bright that it is possible to see without visual aids. The interaction of the ions in the upper atmosphere with the planetary magnetic field can sometimes cause great problems in with sensors, contragravity lifters, and communications equipment. [2]

Native Lifeforms[edit]

There is little native animal life on Jae Tellona, and the few muticellular life–forms that do exist are mostly insect-analogs. The dominant native life on Jae Tellona is a motile form of oxygen-producing desert algae that exists in extensive "carpets" in the planet's temperate zones, along with a variety of single–celled organisms and "insectoids" that exist in symbiosis with it as part of the planet's ecological cycle. Desert algal carpets and the parasites they host typically move at a maximum rate of about 10 km a week. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

As a captive/colony type government, the colony falls nominally under Imperial Law, operating under charter by Sternmetal Horizons, LIC, and is overseen by the Imperial Navy. Planetary law enforcement agents are mostly corporate security personnel, without much real power, but enough to make them better avoided than crossed. [2]

Imperial Landed Nobility (N)[edit]

Jae Tellona is the home of a member or members of the Imperial Nobility, a narrow class of persons at the upper strata of Imperial society who hold noble rank.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Jae Tellona has an excellent quality starport.

  • A Class A Starport Facility has very well developed shipyards and is capable of producing first rate starships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Sometimes multiple ports of each type.

Jae Tellona has two Starport facilities, one located at each polar region. Many of the wealthier inhabitants of Jae Tellona fly to the opposite pole every 13 months in order to always reside on the night-side of the world. Though the night-side is just as frigid as the day-side is torrid (and just as deadly to the unprotected), many prefer the frigid environment as compared to the high temperatures of the day-side. [2]

World Population (P)[edit]

World Demographics[edit]

Humaniti, population 100%

World Government (G)[edit]

Jae Tellona is a Captive Government or Colony.

  • It is a government by a leadership answerable to an outside group, a colony or conquered area.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Vassal State.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Federation .

Although Jae Tellona's law level is nominally 5, many of the world's inhabitants are rough–cut miners who work hard and play hard. Mining colonies are found mostly underground, but are also periodically dispersed throughout the regions of desert and mountains. [2]

  • Many in the ranks of Jae Tellonan law enforcement are corrupt, and a significant percentage of both the police establishment and economic concerns are controlled by criminal organizations, collectively known on Jae Tellona as the "Affiliation". [2]

World Law Level (L)[edit]

No information yet available.

World Technology Level (TL)[edit]

Jae Tellona possesses a Technology Level of TL–8.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Fiber optics, improved telephones, and satellite communication and data networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Improved geothermal and improved batteries.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Advanced automobiles.
    • Water: Triphibians and early artificial gills.
    • Air: Improved helicopters and hypersonic jets.
    • Space: Space shuttles, early space stations, and improved interplanetary spacecraft (System Craft).

Urbanization[edit]

The northern-polar city is known as Stargate Artica, while the southern-polar city is known as Stargate Antartica. The majority of the population in each of these cities exists underground, though both cities also have some hardy surface dwellers who see living on the surface as a sign of superiority. Stargate Artica is the older of the two cities, and is slightly larger and more developed in terms of its underground complex. The underground complex of Stargate Artica is divided into eight Sectors. The sectors are connected by an extensive underground electrical railway system reminiscent of the subways employed in the undercities of the larger population centers of many lower tech worlds. Stargate Antartica has a similar system of classification but is far less developed, and has only five sectors. [2]

Various installations all over the planet serve as access points to the extensive network of mines and tunnels throughout the planet’s crust. The buildings and installations of these access points often function as temporary cities. Most of these access points are located in the equatorial and tropical regions, often concentrated in the hills and mountains. [2]

World Infrastructure[edit]

This world possesses TBD infrastructure.

World Culture[edit]

Recreational drugs are often freely available upon Jae Tellona and prostitution has evolved into an institution with benefits and pensions. As a result, Jae Tellona has tended to become a haven for criminal elements. [2]
