Basgar is a poor, barren hellworld, which would challenge the survival of nearly any sophont in Charted Space if it weren't already barren.

  • As a barren world, it has no overt population, government, or law level.
  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • This world could probably be populated by very determined colonists if any had an inclination to do so...
  • It is an unclaimed Non-Aligned world located in the Vel Sarka Subsector of Shandara 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.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The Basgar system was officially surveyed by the University of Tal Varisa Deep Sky Program.

  • The results of the survey are available as the DSP Listing, a comprehensive star catalog first published in 5550AD.

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 5,600km and 7,200km in diameter. The world has low gravity between 0.32G and 0.46G. The horizon will appear about 3.6km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 0.10 to 0.42 atmospheres. The very thin pressures require a respirator or Oxygen Mask 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 Respirator Combination Mask. Some taints may require more protective equipment. TL–5 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 05-15% of its surface covered by liquid water or ice. Wilderness refueling will be difficult. Water for the inhabitants needs to be imported and extensively recycled. These worlds are Hell Worlds or Poor Worlds depending on their atmosphere.
