Aredian is a pre-agricultural and nonindustrial world lacking adequate development for its economy to become prosperous.

  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • This a "low technology" world with technology competency well below technology standards for Charted Space.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Aredian Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Lokis-Aredian System[edit]

The primary is Lokis, a white subgiant star. It has a luminosity of 12 Sols, a mass of 2 Sols, and a diameter of 3.618 million km. The inner system consists of (II) a vacuum worldlet, (III) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (V) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world – orbital positions (I) and (IV) are empty. (VI) Aredian orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (VII) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (VIII-I) a small gas giant, (VIII-II) a ringed large gas giant, and (IX) a small ice giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(VI) Aredian[edit]

(VI) Aredian is designated the mainworld. It orbits Lokis at a mean distance of 2.68 AU (400.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 3 years 38 days and a rotation period of 40.5 hours. The axial tilt is 19 degrees. Aredian has a diameter of 7,764 km, a density of 4.47 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.49 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 2.43 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1%, water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), xenon (Xe), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 37% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.1m. Mean surface temperature: 48°C. The climate is rated as Hot and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and strong weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe.


Aredian retains a single natural satellite, a cratered vacuum worldlet named Minos:

(VIa) Minos (UWP Y100000-0, orbiting at 25 Diameters/195,000 km)

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 189 million km², Land surface area: 119 million km², Water surface area: 70 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Lokis-Aredian System[edit]

Aredian, 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.
