  • This world could be populated if anyone had an inclination to do so...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Camabar Subsector of Serenity Sector.
  • 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.

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 12,000km and 13,500km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.8G and 1.1G. The horizon will appear about 5.1km away. Vessels with 1G of thrust should check with local starport authorities before attempting to land using emergency power.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has an Insidious Atmosphere which requires the use of a Hostile Environment Suit or Vacc Suit, but extreme conditions cause the corrosive effects to defeat any personal protective measures in a few hours. TL–10 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 15-25% of its surface covered by liquid water or ice. There may be a few small seas. Wilderness refueling is possible. Water for the inhabitants needs to be imported and extensively recycled. These worlds are Hell Worlds or Poor Worlds depending on their atmosphere.
