System Data[edit]

Salmar-Redous System[edit]

The primary is Salmar, an ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I-I) Redous, designated the mainworld, and (I-II) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (II) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (IV-I) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (IV-II) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (VII) a dense icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-I) Redous[edit]

(I-I) Redous is designated the mainworld. It orbits Salmar at a mean distance of 0.12 AU (17.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 22 days 11 hours: it is tidally locked to Salmar. The axial tilt is 3 degrees. Redous has a diameter of 6,274 km, a density of 4.78 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.43 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Salmar cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.22 bar and a composition of 85% nitrogen (N2), 13% abiotic oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne), ozone (O3) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by the low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 28% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 35°C. The climate is rated as Hot 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: 124 million km², Land surface area: 89 million km², Water surface area: 35 million km².

  • The oxygen in the atmosphere is abiotic in origin, produced by the photocatalytic reaction between the high levels of UV energy radiating from the star and titanium dioxide (TiO2), which is found in surface minerals such as ilmenite.
  • Redous 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]

Salmar-Redous System[edit]

No world in the system is known to have native life: all of the hospitable worlds have atmospheres containing abiotic oxygen.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

  • The supergiant primary of the Demon's Eye system and the huge Demon's Eye Nebula that surrounds it, lying a few parsecs to trailing, are clearly visible in the sky.

World starport[edit]

Redous has a routine quality starport.

  • A Class C Starport Facility has minimal if any shipyards and can only perform extremely limited repair work.
  • This facility has many very skilled personnel who can perform surprisingly sophisticated repair work despite the limited facilities.
  • This facility has refueling infrastructure and limited refining capabilities. One may purchase unrefined fuel here.
  • Starports of this class rarely have both a Lowport and a Highport.

World technology level[edit]

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

World government[edit]

Redous has a Participatory Democracy government.

  • It is a government by advice and consent of the citizen.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Democracy.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Unitary State.
