Oromet is a poor, high-population world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

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

System Data[edit]

Numenor-Oromet System[edit]

The primary is Numenor, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.072 Sols, a mass of 0.5538 Sols, and a diameter of 783,000 km. (I) Oromet orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (III) a dense icy planetoid belt, (IV) a ringed large gas giant, (V) a small gas giant, and (VI) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Andunie Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Andunie, an ordinary red main sequence star that lies approximately 4,870 AU from Numenor. It has a luminosity of 0.0268 Sols, a mass of 0.4258 Sols, and a diameter of 658,000 km. (I) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (II) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (IV) a ringed gas giant, and (V) a trace atmosphere worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Oromet[edit]

(I) Oromet is designated the mainworld. It orbits Numenor at a mean distance of 0.18 AU (26.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 37 days 12 hours: it is tidally locked to Numenor. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Oromet has a diameter of 6,959 km, a density of 6.44 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.64 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Numenor cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.66 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 18% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 34% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 38°C. The climate is Hot and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 152 million km², Land surface area: 100 million km², Water surface area: 52 million km². The seas are concentrated into the Circlewater, a ring of seas and lakes lying within the twilight region of the surface.

  • Oromet 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]

Numenor-Oromet System[edit]

Oromet, the mainworld, has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

Andunie Subsystem[edit]

The temperate hospitable world lying in orbital position (I) (lying within the habitable zone) has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (II) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Oromet is a member of the Protectorate of Leset.

World starport[edit]

Oromet has a good quality starport.

  • A Class B Starport Facility has not very well developed shipyards and is only capable of producing spaceships.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform not only major repair work, but overhaul work as well.
  • This facility has advanced refueling and refining infrastructure. One may purchase practically any kind of refined fuel here.
  • Almost every starport of this class possesses both a Lowport and a Highport. Such ports rarely have more than one of each kind of port.

World technology level[edit]

Oromet possesses a Technology Level of TL–11 or TL-B in Hexadecimal Notation.

World government[edit]

Oromet has a Feudal Technocracy government.

  • It is a government by specific individuals for those who agree to be ruled. Relationships are based on the performance of technical activities which are mutually-beneficial.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Oligarchy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Hegemony.
