Baradis is an icy, barren vacuum world, with no overt population, government, or law level, which would warrant hazardous environment precautions if anyone lived here.

  • Its surface is ice-capped with little or no atmosphere and nearly all of its water frozen.
  • This world could be populated by a determined group if they had an inclination to do so...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Baradis Subsector of Halcyon Sector.

System data[edit]

Fashu-Baradis System[edit]

The primary is Fashu, a red giant star. It has a luminosity of 1918 Sols, a mass of 7.18 Sols, and a diameter of 271 million km – the corona of the star extends to 0.91 AU, within orbital position (IV). The inner system consists of (V) a vacuum worldlet, (VI) a vacuum inner world, (VII) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (VIII) a trace atmosphere inner world, and (IX) a dense atmosphere stormworld – orbital positions (I) to (III) lie within the star and orbital position (IV) is empty. (X) Clessor, a small gas giant, orbits within the habitable zone: (Xa) Baradis is its only moon and is designated the mainworld. Only the stormworld and Clessor retain satellites.

(X) Clessor[edit]

(X) Clessor is a small gas giant that orbits Fashu at a mean distance of 69.6 AU (10.4 billion km) and has an orbital period of 216 years 254 days. It has a diameter of 38,000km and is a pale blue colour. It retains a family of two major satellites of which the outer, (Xb) Baradis, is designated the mainworld.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(Xb) Baradis[edit]

(Xb) Baradis is the outer of the two major moons of (X) Clessor and is designated the mainworld. Baradis orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 13 diameters (494,000 km), with an orbital period of 40 days 9 hours: it is tidally locked to Clessor. The axial tilt is 6 degrees. Baradis has a diameter of 2,944 km, a density of 4.31 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.18 G. The world is geologically inert, though it experiences minor geological activity due to tidal stresses. Its atmosphere is rated as Vacuum. Approximately 19% of the surface is covered in sheets of water-ice. Mean surface temperature: -15°C.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 27 million km², Land surface area: 22 million km², Ice surface area: 5 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Baradis has a Class E Starport, a frontier quality installation with few expected amenities. There is unrefined fuel for starships and a limited variety of ship provisions. There is no shipyard of any kind, but there may be parts and technical support for doing minor services and repair. Ports of this classification generally consist of a downport.

World technology level[edit]

Baradis possesses a Technology Level of TL–0.

  • These worlds often contain a Proto-Sophont species beginning to establish a nascent civilization and society.
  • This world is in its Alpha Period and has not yet been interfered with by a higher technology civilization.
  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Bodily communicative apparati, courier-runners, and smoke signals.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Bodily muscle.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Bodily locomotion, riding beasts, and litters or sedan chairs.
    • Water: Swimming, rafts, and canoes.
    • Air: Typically not available unless a bodily ability.

World government[edit]

Baradis has no central government for the world, an Anarchy. The largest governmental structure would be a family, tribe, or single clan. The largest group will be between 50 and 100 individuals, and there may be dozens to hundreds of them. This governmental structure can be stable over long periods of time if the population remains small or geographically separated.
