System Data[edit]

Molo-Loudom System[edit]

The primary is Molo, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0136 Sols, a mass of 0.3626 Sols, and a diameter of 551,000 km. (I-I) a vacuum worldlet, (I-II) Loudom, designated the mainworld, (I-III) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (II) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (III) a ringed large gas giant, (IV-I) a small gas giant, (IV-II) a ringed small ice giant, and (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Narusa Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Narusa, a dim red subdwarf star that lies at a mean distance of 2,370 AU from Molo. It has a luminosity of 0.00103 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols, and a diameter of 109,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (II-I) a vacuum worldlet, (II-II) a vacuum worldlet, (III) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (IV-I) a dense icy planetoid belt, (IV-II) a ringed small gas giant, (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (VI) a ringed large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-II) Loudom[edit]

(I-II) Loudom is designated the mainworld. It orbits Molo at a mean distance of 0.31 AU (46.4 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 104 days 17 hours: it is tidally locked to Molo. The axial tilt is 5 degrees. Loudom has a diameter of 6,192 km, a density of 4.22 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.37 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Molo cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.21 bar and a composition of 89% nitrogen (N2), 10% abiotic oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 28% of the surface is covered in sheets of water-ice and seas of water kept liquid by geothermal activity: average tidal ranges exceed 0.1m. Mean surface temperature: -33°C. The atmosphere is sluggish and weak weather systems driven by the star and the seas drift across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 120 million km², Land surface area: 86 million km², Water surface area: 34 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.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Molo-Loudom System[edit]

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

Narusa Subsystem[edit]

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Loudom 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]

Loudom possesses a Technology Level of TL–10 or TL-A in Hexadecimal Notation.

World government[edit]

Loudom has no well-defined government structure.

  • In many cases, tribal, clan or family bonds predominate.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Pantocracy or Chaos.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
