Jump map from [1]

Nisor is a ring of many small worldlets (planetoids AKA an "asteroid belt"), not capable of retaining an atmosphere or water, and is also a low-population vacuum environment with a population less than 10,000 sophonts in population size, warranting hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • It is a part of the Client States in the Nisor Subsector of Far Home Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Plume-Nisor System[edit]

The primary is Plume, a huge red giant star. It has a luminosity of 2690 Sols, a mass of 9.2 Sols, and a diameter of 250 million km – the corona lies at 1.67 AU, within orbital position (V). The inner system consists of (V) a vacuum worldlet, (VI) a trace atmosphere inner world, (VII) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (VIII) a sparse stony planetoid belt, and (IX) the Nisor Main Belt, designated the mainworld – orbital positions (I) to (IV) lie within the star. (X) a large gas giant orbits within the habitable zone. (XI) a ringed large gas giant, (XII) a very thin atmosphere radworld, (XIII-I) a small gas giant, and (XIII-II) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IX) Nisor Main Belt[edit]

(IX) the Nisor Main Belt orbits within the H– region of the inner system and is designated the mainworld. It lies at a mean distance of 19.5 AU from the star and is primarily made up of carbonaceous bodies with diameters of less than 100 km. The inner edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of nickel-iron bodies, is considered to lie at around 16.4 AU from the star and the outer edge of the belt, with a higher concentration of icy bodies, is considered to lie at approximately 22.6 AU. The main inhabited body is named Porfiria, with a mean orbital distance of 20.3 AU around Plume and an orbital period of approximately 30 years. It has a long axis of 350 km, a density of 3.88 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.019 G. It retains no atmosphere and has no hydrographics. Mean surface temperature: 110°C in sunlight, 45°C in shadow.
