==== Mainworld geography and topography ====
==== Glean System ====
+
No information yet available.
The primary is Glean, an ordinary white main sequence [[star]]. It has a luminosity of 9.68 Sols, a mass of 1.78 Sols, and a diameter of 2.393 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a [[vacuum]] [[inner world]], (II) a [[trace atmosphere]] [[inner world]], (III) an [[exotic atmosphere]] [[radworld]], (IV) a [[corrosive atmosphere]] [[inferno world]], and (V) a sparse stony [[planetoid belt]]. (VI) a [[ring]]ed [[small gas giant]] orbits within the [[habitable zone]]: it retains (VIc) a [[very thin atmosphere]] [[hospitable world|hospitable]] moon. (VII) a [[large gas giant]] forms the outer system. Many of the [[world]]s retain [[satellite]]s.
+
  
==== Peck-Cull Subsystem ====
+
=== Native lifeforms ===
The companion is Peck, an ordinary yellow main sequence [[star]] that orbits Glean at a mean distance of 735 AU (orbital position (XIV), 110 billion km) and has an orbital period of 14,936 years. It has a luminosity of 1.102 Sols, a mass of 1.02 Sols, and a diameter of 1.399 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a [[trace atmosphere]] [[worldlet]], (II) an [[exotic atmosphere]] [[bigworld]], and (III) a dense stony [[planetoid belt]]. (IV) Garner, a [[ring]]ed [[small gas giant]] orbits within the [[habitable zone]]: (IVb) Cull is its outer satellite and is designated the [[mainworld]]. (V) a small [[ice giant]] forms the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

==== Winnow Subsystem ====
+
The far companion is Winnow, a dim red subdwarf [[star]] that orbits Peck at a mean distance of 11.6 AU (orbital position (VIII), 1.74 billion km) and has an orbital period of 39 years. It has a luminosity of 0.00054 Sols, a mass of 0.07 Sols, and a diameter of 91,500 km. (I) a [[vacuum]] [[iceworld]], (II) a sparse icy [[planetoid belt]], and (III) a [[small gas giant]] form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.
+
 
+
==== (IV) Garner ====
+
(IV) Garner is a [[ring]]ed [[small gas giant]] that orbits Peck at a mean distance of 0.96 AU (143.6 million km), within the [[habitable zone]], and has an orbital period of 340 years 63 days. It has a diameter of 33,500 km and an atmosphere consisting of 91% hydrogen (H<sub><small>2</small></sub>), 9% helium (He), and less than 1% methane (CH<sub><small>4</small></sub>), carbon monoxide (CO), ammonia (NH<sub><small>3</small></sub>), water vapor (H<sub><small>2</small></sub>O) and other trace gases. It is a deep blue colour streaked with white clouds. It retains a family of two major [[satellite]]s of which the outer, (IVb) Cull, is designated the [[mainworld]].
+
 
+
===== Satellites =====
+
Garner retains two major [[satellite]]s:
+
: (IVa) Idarin ([[UWP]] Y210000-0, orbiting at 8 Diameters/270,000 km)
+
: (IVb) Cull (designated the [[mainworld]])
+
 
+
=== Mainworld Data ===
+
==== (IVb) Cull ====
+
(IVb) Cull is the outer of the two major [[satellite|moons]] of (IV) Garner and is designated the [[mainworld]]. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 15 diameters (502,000 million km), with an orbital period of 54 days 10 hours: it is [[tidally locked]] to Garner. The axial tilt is 1 degree relative to Garner. Cull has a diameter of 12,746 km, a density of 5.45 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.99 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Garner cause regular geological activity. The atmosphere is rated as [[Standard atmosphere|Standard]], with a mean surface pressure of 1.04 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N<sub><small>2</small></sub>), 21% oxygen (O<sub><small>2</small></sub>), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H<sub><small>2</small></sub>O), carbon dioxide (CO<sub><small>2</small></sub>), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Around 56% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.5m. Mean surface temperature: 16°C. The [[Fringian_Variant_System_Description#Planetary_Climate|climate]] is rated as Temperate-Prime and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe. The climate is static.
+
 
+
==== Mainworld Geography and Topography ====
+
Total surface area: 510 million km², Water surface area: 286 million km², Land surface area: 224 million km².
+
 
+
=== Native Lifeforms ===
+
==== Glean System ====
+
The [[hospitable world|hospitable]] moon orbiting the [[small gas giant]] lying in orbital position (VI) (within the [[habitable zone]]) has extensive native life, consisting of minute multicellular organisms that can be found in most ecological niches. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.
+
 
+
No other [[world]] in the [[system]] is known to have native life.
+
 
+
==== Peck-Cull Subsystem ====
+
Cull, 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|subsystem]] is known to have native life.
+
 
+
==== Winnow Subsystem ====
+
No [[world]] in the [[system|subsystem]] is known to have native life.
