System Data[edit]

The worlds of the system have been remotely surveyed. They consist of:

Mainworld Data[edit]

Limited data is available about the body nominated as the mainworld. All of the data has been gathered over centuries of remote observation.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 8,800km and 10,400km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.6G and 0.8G. The horizon will appear about 4.4km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 0.71 to 1.49 atmospheres. While a Standard Atmosphere does not require survival gear this atmosphere also contains an unusual taint such as such as disease, a hazardous gas mix, pollutants, or sulfur compounds which requires the use of a Filter Mask. Some taints may require more protective equipment. TL–3 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 65-75% of its surface covered by liquid water. It has significant large liquid bodies. Wilderness refueling is possible.
