System Data[edit]

Salan-Erenim System[edit]

The primary is Salan, an ordinary yellow sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.102 Sols, a mass of 1.02 Sols and a diameter of 1.4 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum inner world, (II) a vacuum worldlet, and (III) a thin atmosphere hospitable world. (IV) Erenim orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (V) a vacuum worldlet, (VI) a small gas giant, (VII) a large ringed gas giant, (VIII) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (IX) an exotic atmosphere radworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IV) Erenim[edit]

(IV) Erenim is designated the mainworld. It orbits Salan at a mean distance of 1.06 AU (158.6 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 394 days 16 hours and a rotation period of 18.5 hours. The axial tilt is 15 degrees. Erenim has a diameter of 10,903 km, a density of 5.72 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.89 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Dense, with a mean surface pressure of 1.73 bar and a composition of 81% nitrogen, 18% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. Approximately 59% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 26°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and strong weather systems driven by the star and the oceans scour the surface. The climate is seasonal.


Erenim retains two natural satellites, a pair of cratered vacuum worldlets named Carsen and Dolmen:

(IVa) Carsen (UWP H300000-0, orbiting at 11 Diameters/284,000 km)
(IVb) Dolman (UWP H200000-0, orbiting at 35 Diameters/284,000 km).

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 373 million km², Water surface area: 220 million km², Land surface area: 153 million km². Four rugged, mountainous continents, the largest covering much of the southern hemisphere and extending to the southern polar regions. Many large islands and archipelagos. Deep oceans.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Extensive native life.

World Economy[edit]

Erenim's main export is Senn Powder, an expensive spice that induces a mild sense of euphoria. Senn Powder is derived from the stamen of tiny sharp-leafed Razor Orchids: hundreds of flowers will only produce a few grams of stamen. Vast, heavily guarded orchid farms dominate inhabited areas.
