Cross Comet 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...
  • This die back world was once settled and developed, but the inhabitants have either died off or left leaving behind the ruins and remnants of their civilization.
  • This world hosts a Vargr Corsair Base.
  • It is a member of the Corsair Lyceum in the Rho Subsector of Gakghang Sector.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

Cross Comet is a Small World between 2,400km and 4,000km in diameter. The world has low gravity between 0.1G and 0.17G. The horizon will appear about 2.5km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

Cross Comet has a pressure of less than 0.001 atmospheres which requires the use of a Vacc Suit. TL–8 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

Cross Comet 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.

World Starport (Sp)[edit]

Cross Comet does not have a starport. The Class X Starport is an indication that no starport exists in the system. There are no facilities or services available, and no site marked for landing.

World Population (P)[edit]

Cross Comet has no population (...zero sophonts). It is devoid of a known sophont population.

World Demographics[edit]

None.

World Government (G)[edit]

Cross Comet 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.

World Law Level (L)[edit]

Cross Comet has no law in practice. It is an Anarchy. On many worlds, this by itself justifies an Amber Zone advisory. There are few laws, covering only important areas. There may be few or no law enforcement officers, the expectation is citizens will bring law breakers to the attention of the Judicial system. Legal proceedings will be fast, with few people involved. For interactions outside of the framework of the laws, cultural norms dominate.
