System Data[edit]

Less-Resu System[edit]

The primary is Less, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.994 Sols, a mass of 1 Sol, and a diameter of 1.366 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, and (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld. (IV) Resu orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (VI) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VII) a large gas giant, (VIII) a ringed small gas giant, and (IX) a large gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Resu[edit]

(IV) Resu is designated the mainworld. It orbits Less at a mean distance of 0.92 AU (137.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 322 days 7 hours and a rotation period of 27.5 hours. The axial tilt is 14 degrees. Resu has a diameter of 9,407 km, a density of 5.38 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.72 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.85 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen, 19% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by allergenic spores and pollens of organic origin. Approximately 36% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 31°C. The atmosphere is active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.


Resu retains a single natural satellite, a thin atmosphere hospitable world named Lotus:

(IVa) Lotus (UWP Y351000-0, orbiting at 45 Diameters/423,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 278 million km², Land surface area: 178 million km², Water surface area: 100 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Resu has extensive native life. Their metabolic processes maintain a cycle of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Resu 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]

Resu possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Electricity, hydrocarbon internal combustion, and the most fundamental atomic energy.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Ground cars or automobiles and tracked vehicles.
    • Water: Large ships and submersibles with steel hulls.
    • Air: Early aircraft including seaplanes and very early unmanned rockets.

World government[edit]

Resu has a Balkanized government.

  • No central ruling authority exists. Rival governments compete for control.
  • The typical power source of this government is a Balkanization.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
