System Data[edit]

The primary is an unnamed ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0202 Sols, a mass of 0.3942 Sols, and a diameter of 604,000 km. (I) Vanadas, designated the mainworld, (II) an exotic atmosphere radworld, (III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (IV-I) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (IV-II) a ringed large gas giant, (V) a small gas giant, and (VI) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Brown Dwarf Subsystem[edit]

The companion is an unnamed magenta-coloured L-type brown dwarf lying approximately 560 AU from the primary. It is not luminous, it has a mass of 0.062 Sols and a diameter of 60,000 km. It does not retain a planetary system.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Vanadas[edit]

(I) Vanadas is designated the mainworld. It orbits the primary at a mean distance of 0.25 AU (37.4 million km), within the outer system. It has an orbital period of 72 days 17 hours: it is tidally locked to the primary. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Vanadas has a diameter of 16,471 km, a density of 6.27 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 1.47 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of the primary cause constant geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Corrosive, with a mean surface pressure of 68.4 bar and a composition of 73% carbon dioxide (CO2), 18% nitrogen (N2), 6% chlorine (Cl), 1% nitrogen dioxide (NO2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% neon (Ne), ammonia (NH3), ammonia hydrosulfide (H5NS), water vapor (H2O) and other trace gases. Approximately 36% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid nitrogen trichloride (NCl3) (trichloramine): average tidal ranges exceed 0.1m. Mean surface temperature: -46°C. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star surge across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 853 million km², Land surface area: 546 million km², Fluid surface area: 307 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

No world in the Vanadas system is known to have native life.
