System Data[edit]

Manusta-Quistil System[edit]

The primary is Manusta, a red giant star. It has a luminosity of 2382.5 Sols, a mass of 7.85 Sols, and a diameter of 363.155 million km – the corona of the star extends to 1.22 AU, within orbital position (IV). The inner system consists of (V-I) a vacuum worldlet, (V-II) a trace atmosphere inner world, (VI) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (VII) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (VIII) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (IX-I) a sparse stony planetoid belt, and (IX-II) a sparse stony planetoid belt – orbital position (IV) is empty. (X) Mayag, a large gas giant, orbits within the habitable zone: (Xc) Quistil is its outer moon and is designated the mainworld. (XI-I) a ringed small gas giant, (XI-II) a ringed large gas giant, (XII-I) a large gas giant, (XII-II) a small ice giant, and (XIII) a dense icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

(X) Mayag[edit]

(X) Mayag is a large gas giant that orbits Manusta at a mean distance of 41.2 AU (6.2 billion km), within the habitable zone, and has an orbital period of 94 years 141 days. It has a diameter of 77,000 km and an atmosphere consisting of 90% hydrogen (H2), 10% helium (He), and less than 1% methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH3), water vapor (H2O) and other trace gases. It is a brown-tan color with broad pale bands and large semi-permanent equatorial storms. It retains a family of three major satellites.


Mayag retains three major satellites:

(Xa) Hardin (UWP H100000-0, orbiting at 7 Diameters/540,000 km)
(Xb) Fasini (UWP Y3A0000-0, orbiting at 11 Diameters/850,000 km)
(Xc) Quistil (designated the mainworld, orbiting at 14 Diameters/1.08 million km)

Mainworld Data[edit]

(Xc) Quistil[edit]

(Xc) Quistil is the outer of the three major moons of (X) Mayag and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 14 diameters (1.08 million km), with an orbital period of 113 days 6 hours: it is tidally locked to Mayag. The axial tilt is 3 degrees relative to Mayag. Quistil has a diameter of 10,102 km, a density of 4.46 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.64 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Mayag cause frequent geological activity. The atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 1.23 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the relatively high levels of background radiation: emission rates exceed 10 rads per hour. Around 36% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. 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 dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 320 million km², Land surface area: 205 million km², Water surface area: 115 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Manusta-Quistil System[edit]

Quistil, the mainworld, has extensive native life, consisting of radiation-tolerant 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.

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Quistil 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]

Quistil possesses a Technology Level of TL–3.

World government[edit]

Quistil 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.
