Adik is a poor, nonindustrial world.

  • 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 world has few prospects for economic development.
  • It is a Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Velous Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Longro-Adik System[edit]

The primary is Longro, 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-I) Adik, designated the mainworld, and (I-II) a dense atmosphere hospitable world, have a shared orbit within the habitable zone. (II) a very thin atmosphere radworld, (III) a trace atmosphere iceworld, (IV) a exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (V) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I-I) Adik[edit]

(I-I) Adik is designated the mainworld. It orbits Longro at a mean distance of 0.12 AU (17.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 18 days 13 hours: it is tidally locked to Longro. The axial tilt is 2 degrees. Adik has a diameter of 7,317 km, a density of 3.88 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.40 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Longro cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.68 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 18% oxygen (O2), 1% argon (Ar), and 1% water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 19% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.1m. Mean surface temperature: 28°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Warm and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star and the seas work across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 168 million km², Land surface area: 136 million km², Water surface area: 32 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Longro-Adik System[edit]

Adik, the mainworld, has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The temperate hospitable world lying in orbital position (I-II) (within the habitable zone) has extensive native life, consisting of microscopic organisms, stromatolite-parallels and primitive flora that can be found in almost every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

World starport[edit]

Adik has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World technology level[edit]

Adik possesses a Technology Level of TL–6.

World government[edit]

Adik is governed by a Feudal Technocracy. Society divides itself based on the technical requirements of the society. Each of these functions are granted as a fief to an individual or group. Leadership of these fiefs determines the head of the government.
