Description (Planetology)[edit]

Santorini is a tide-locked world, habitable because its atmosphere is thick enough to allow the night face to be heated by circulation effects. Most of the planet’s day face is covered by ocean, although one small continent and a thick scattering of islands fall in a particularly pleasant climate zone that is densely populated.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Santorini is a rich world located in Kukulkan Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Santorini was settled about 350 by members of a Terran splinter cultural group, the Chalice Sisterhood, which emulated Terra’s ancient Minoan culture. Santorini is governed by a hereditary aristocracy, with each noble family dominated by a tightly knit group of women with religious educations.
