System Data[edit]

Astrath-Verial System[edit]

The primary is Astrath, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.216 Sols, a mass of 0.672 Sols, and a diameter of 978,000 km. (I) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world orbits within the habitable zone. (II) Verial, designated the mainworld, (III) a trace atmosphere radworld, (IV) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (V) a ringed large gas giant, (VI) an exotic atmosphere stormworld, (VII-I) a small gas giant, (VII-II) a ringed small ice giant, and (VIII) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(II) Verial[edit]

(II) Verial is designated the mainworld. It orbits Astrath at a mean distance of 0.34 AU (50.9 million km), within the within the H+ region of the outer system. It has an orbital period of 88 days 8 hours: it is tidally locked to Astrath. The axial tilt is 20 degrees relative to Astrath. Verial has a diameter of 6,412 km, a density of 3.98 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.36 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Slago, its large close moon, cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.57 bar and a composition of 81% nitrogen (N2), 18% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 2% of the surface is covered in sheets of water ice and lakes of water kept liquid by geothermal activity. Mean surface temperature: -25°C. The climate is rated as Cold and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is slow and weak weather systems driven by the star drift across the globe.


Verial retains two natural satellites, a close exotic atmosphere hospitable world named Slago and a vacuum worldlet named Ularda:

(IIa) Slago (UWP Y3A0000-0, orbiting at 6 Diameters/38,500 km)
(IIb) Ularda (UWP Y100000-0, orbiting at 35 Diameters/225,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 129 million km², Land surface area: 126 million km², Water surface area: 3 million km².

  • Verial is a Twilight Zone World.
  • The world experiences libration, which causes the star to move in the sky and periodically rise and fall above the horizon in the twilight region.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Astrath-Verial System[edit]

Verial, the mainworld, lying within the H+ region of the outer system, has primitive cryophile native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that thrive in the harsh conditions. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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