Evolit is a hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants. Survivors often form intense survival skills and tend to be grim realists.
  • This world is a "Twilight Zone World", a planet that is tidally-locked to its primary world, giving a hot pole, a cold pole and a twilight zone in-between.
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Parsalax Subsector of Extent Sector.

System Data

Evolit System

The primary is an unnamed ordinary red main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I) Evolit orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (III) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (IV) a ringed large gas giant, and (V) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data

(I) Evolit

(I) Evolit is designated the mainworld. It orbits the primary at a mean distance of 0.22 AU (32.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 55 days 17 hours: it is tidally locked to the primary. The axial tilt is 3 degrees. Evolit has a diameter of 8,438 km, a density of 6.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.76 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of the primary cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Exotic, with a mean surface pressure of 0.76 bar and a composition of 94% nitrogen (N2), 4% carbon dioxide (CO2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% neon (Ne), water vapor (H2O), abiotic oxygen (O2), ammonia (NH3) and other trace gases. The world has no hydrosphere. Mean surface temperature: 85°C. The atmosphere is very active and powerful weather systems driven by the star sweep across the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld Geography and Topography

Total surface area: 223 million km². Evolit 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

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