Karadin is an icy, low-population vacuum world, with a population less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • This world-system hosts a Military Base, usually associated with military ground forces, which may be located on or off-world.

System Data[edit]

Obost System[edit]

The primary is Obost, a dim red subdwarf star. It has a luminosity of 0.00103 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols, and a diameter of 109,000 km. (II) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system – orbital position (I) is empty. Both of the worlds retain satellites.

Norak-Karadin System[edit]

The companion is Norak, a dim red subdwarf star. It has a luminosity of 0.00006 Sols, a mass of 0.058 Sols, and a diameter of 73,700 km. (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) Haspur, a ringed small gas giant: (IIb) Karadin is its outer moon and is designated the mainworld, and (III) an exotic atmosphere radworld form the outer system. Only the gas giant retains satellites.

(II) Haspur[edit]

(II) Haspur is a ringed small gas giant that orbits Norak at a mean distance of 0.41 AU (61.3 million km) and has an orbital period of 1 year 33 days. It has a diameter of 37,000 km and is a mottled bluish-green colour. It retains a family of two major satellites of which the outer, (IIb) Karadin, is designated the mainworld.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IIb) Karadin[edit]

(IIb) Karadin is the outer of the two major moons of (II) Haspur and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 12 diameters (444,000 km), with an orbital period of 1 year 197 days: it is tidally locked to Haspur. It has an axial tilt of 5 degrees. Karadin has a diameter of 5,113 km, a density of 4.27 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.31 G. Tidal stresses caused by the gravitational pull of Haspur cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Vacuum. Around 7% of the surface is covered in a crust of water ice. Mean surface temperature: -137°C.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 82 million km², Land surface area: 76 million km², Ice surface area: 6 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

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