Maujen is a poor, non-agricultural world.

  • It is unable to produce quality foodstuffs and must import them.
  • Life is trying on a world like this and inhabitants are constantly working towards developing a reliable source of food production.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Velous Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Smolder-Maujen System[edit]

The primary is Smolder, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.04 Sols, a mass of 0.489 Sols and a diameter of 764,000 km. (I) Maujen orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (IV) a dense stony planetoid belt, (V) a large gas giant, (VI-I) a ringed large gas giant, (VI-II) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (VII-I) a vacuum worldlet (VII-II) a vacuum worldlet, and (VIII) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld data[edit]

(I) Maujen[edit]

(I) Maujen is designated the mainworld. It orbits Smolder at a mean distance of 0.19 AU (28.4 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 43 days 6 hours: it is tidally locked to Smolder. The axial tilt is 4 degrees. Maujen has a diameter of 6,287 km, a density of 5.21 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.46 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Very thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.33 bar and a composition of 81% nitrogen (N2), 18% abiotic oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 27% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 13°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is slow and minor weather systems driven by the star and the seas drift across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 146 million km², Land surface area: 107 million km², Water surface area: 29 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.
  • Maujen 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]

Smolder-Maujen System[edit]

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

  • Maujen, the mainworld, has been colonised by a variety of offworld microscopic organisms that grow in such profusion around the shores of the seas that their metabolic processes have begun to alter the composition of the atmosphere.
