J'Lai Edur is a high-population, pre-rich garden world with a billion or more sophonts in population size, a near-ideal utopian environment conducive to most sophonts, and still lacks adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

System Data[edit]

Elisiad-J'Lai Edur System[edit]

The primary is Elisiad, an ordinary yellow main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 1.102 Sols, a mass of 1.02 Sols, and a diameter of 1.399 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a vacuum worldlet, (II) a very thin atmosphere inner world, and (III) an exotic atmosphere inner world. (IV) Pathesu, a large gas giant, orbits within the habitable zone: (IVe) J’Lai Edur is its outer moon and is designated the mainworld. (V) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, and (VI) a ringed small gas giant form the inner part of the outer system. Orbital positions (VII) through (XII) are unavailable due to the presence of the companion star. (XIII) a small ice giant, and (XIV) a sparse icy planetoid belt form the outer part of the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Fentela Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Fentela, a dim red subdwarf star that orbits Elisiad at approximately 40 AU (orbital position (X), 6 billion km) and has an orbital period of 250 years. It has a luminosity of 0.00103 Sols, a mass of 0.081 Sols, and a diameter of 109,000 km. (I) a trace atmosphere iceworld, and (II) a small gas giant form the outer system. The gas giant retains satellites.

(IV) Pathesu[edit]

(IV) Pathesu is a ringed large gas giant that orbits Elisiad at a mean distance of 1.13 AU (169.1 million km) and has an orbital period of 1 year 78 days. It has a diameter of 111,000 km and is a banded deep tan colour. It retains a family of five major satellites of which the outer, (IVe) J'Lai Edur, is designated the mainworld.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(IVe) J'Lai Edur[edit]

(IVe) J'Lai Edur is the outer of the five major moons of (IV) Pathesu and is designated the mainworld. It orbits its parent world at a mean distance of 30 diameters (3.34 million km), with an orbital period of 1 year 147 days: it is tidally locked to Pathesu. The axial tilt is 12 degrees relative to Pathesu. J'Lai Edur has a diameter of 11,520 km, a density of 6.03 g/cm³ and a surface gravity of 0.98 G. Tidal stresses caused by the gravitational pull of Pathesu cause occasional geological activity. J'Lai Edur retains an atmosphere rated as Dense, with a surface pressure of 2.11 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen (N2), 21% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (H2O), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Around 69% of the surface is covered in oceans of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: 19°C. The climate is rated as Temperate-Prime and experiences minor seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is active and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the oceans sweep across the globe.

  • J’Lai Edur has a strong magnetosphere that helps to negate the worst effects of Pathesu’s intense radiation fields.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

This world is a Meso World between 10,400km and 12,000km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.7G and 0.9G. The horizon will appear about 4.7km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

This world has a pressure of 1.50 to 2.49 atmospheres. A Dense Atmosphere requires no survival gear although it may be hard on sophonts not accustomed to it.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

This world has 65-75% of its surface covered by liquid water. It has significant large liquid bodies. Wilderness refueling is possible.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 417 million km², Water surface area: 288 million km², Land surface area: 129 million km². There are two large equatorial continents, a smaller northern polar continent, and many large islands and archipelagos. There are small polar icecaps and the equatorial continents are hot and heavily forested.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Elisiad-J'Lai Edur System[edit]

J'Lai Edur, the mainworld, has extensive, abundant native life, with complex organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The cold marginally hospitable world lying in orbital position (V) (within the H+ region of the outer system) has primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of shelter and warmth. Their metabolic functions maintain the process of atmospheric renewal.

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

Fentela Subsystem[edit]

No world in the subsystem is known to have native life.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

J'Lai Edur 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]

J'Lai Edur possesses a Technology Level of TL–3.

World government[edit]

J'Lai Edur has a Balkanized Government. There is no central world government. The world has several governments competing for control of the world. These may be allies, cooperating, competitors, or at war with each other.
