System Data[edit]

Martow-Tempor System[edit]

The primary is Martow, an ordinary yellow-white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 2.126 Sols, a mass of 1.144 Sols, and a diameter of 1.639 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a very thin atmosphere radworld, and (III) an exotic atmosphere stormworld. (IV) Tempor orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (VI) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VII) a large gas giant, (VIII-I) a ringed small gas giant, and (VIII-II) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Tempor[edit]

(IV) Tempor is designated the mainworld. It orbits Martow at a mean distance of 1.12 AU (167.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 1 day 45 days and a rotation period of 28 hours. The axial tilt is 22 degrees. Tempor has a diameter of 11,808 km, a density of 5.38 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.90 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, with a mean surface pressure of 1.15 bar and a composition of 79% nitrogen (N2), 20% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 64% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 19°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Prime and experiences moderate seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe.

Satellite[edit]

Tempor retains a single natural satellite, a vacuum worldlet named Zerus:

(IVa) Zerus (UWP Y300000-0, orbiting at 35 Diameters/415,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 438 million km², Water surface area: 280 million km², Land surface area: 158 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Martow-Tempor System[edit]

Tempor, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting 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]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Tempor 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]

Tempor possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Telephone, radio, and television.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fission power generation, advanced water and wind generation of electricity.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, early ATV's, and dedicated AFV's.
    • Water: Amphibious vehicles, improved submersibles, and early SCUBA gear.
    • Air: Early jet aircraft and rotorcraft VTOL's.
    • Space: Early unmanned rocket delivery systems and early manned orbital rockets.

World government[edit]

Tempor 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).
