System Data[edit]

Karvor-Lansote System[edit]

The primary is Karvor, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.52 Sols, a mass of 0.871 Sols, and a diameter of 1.264 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III-I) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, and (III-II) Lansote, designated the mainworld, have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. Orbital positions (IV) through (VIII) are unavailable due to the presence of the companion star. (IX) a ringed large gas giant, and (X) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Jorikov Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Jorikov, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Karvor at a mean distance of 2.84 AU (orbital position (VI), 424.9 million km) and an orbital period of 5 years 47 days. It has a luminosity of 0.00152 Sols, a mass of 0.093 Sols, and a diameter of 127,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (II) a small gas giant, and (III) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III-II) Lansote[edit]

(III-II) Lansote is designated the mainworld. It orbits Karvor at a mean distance of 0.83 AU (124.2 million km), the outer of two worlds that orbit within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 295 days 22 hours and a rotation period of 16.5 hours. The axial tilt is 17 degrees. Lansote has a diameter of 9,923 km, a density of 4.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.61 G. The world is geologically inert. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.58 bar and a composition of 83% nitrogen (N2), 16% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by both the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen and trace airborne contaminants of organic origin that produce a psychological response in humans, inducing symptoms of depression and anxiety. Approximately 64% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: -4°C. The climate is rated as Cold and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the oceans drive across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 309 million km², Water surface area: 198 million km², Land surface area: 111 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Karvor-Lansote System[edit]

Despite the relatively marginal conditions Lansote has native life, entirely consisting of extremophile single-celled cyanobacteria-equivalents that can be found in any ecological niche that provides energy, moisture and shelter. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

Jorikov Subsystem[edit]

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Lansote 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]

Lansote 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]

Lansote has a Civil Service Bureaucracy government.

  • It is a government by agencies employing individuals selected for their expertise.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.
