System Data[edit]

Nathin-Solua System[edit]

The primary is Nathin, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.886 Sols, a mass of 0.98 Sols, and a diameter of 1.391 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, and (II) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (III) Solua orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (IV) a thin atmosphere stormworld, (V) a large gas giant, (VI) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (VII) a ringed large gas giant, and (VIII) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(III) Solua[edit]

(III) Solua is designated the mainworld. It orbits Nathin at a mean distance of 0.57 AU (85.3 million km), just within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 158 days 19 hours and a rotation period of 34 hours. The axial tilt is 25 degrees. Solua has a diameter of 14,897 km, a density of 6.62 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.40 G. The world is geologically very active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 1.21 bar and a composition of 88% nitrogen (N2), 10% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. The taint is caused by very low percentage of atmospheric oxygen. Approximately 94% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.75m. Mean surface temperature: 2°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Cool and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is very active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans surge across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Solua retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Pasqual:

(IIIa) Pasqual (UWP Y301000-0, orbiting at 35 Diameters/520,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 697 million km², Water surface area: 655 million km², Land surface area: 42 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Nathin-Solua System[edit]

Solua, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal. Much of the life found on the world is aquatic.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (IV) (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.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Solua 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]

Solua possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World government[edit]

Solua has no well-defined government structure. It is an Anarchy.

  • In many cases, tribal, clan or family bonds predominate.
  • The typical power source of this government is an Pantocracy or Chaos.
  • The typical power structure of this government is a Confederation (Anarchy).
