System Data[edit]

Lorali-Kustil System[edit]

The primary is Lorali, an ordinary white main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 12.84 Sols, a mass of 1.94 Sols, and a diameter of 2.449 million km. The inner system consists of (I) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (II) a vacuum worldlet, (III) a trace atmosphere worldlet, (IV) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world, (V) a very thin atmosphere inner world, and (VI) a corrosive atmosphere inferno world. (VII) Kustil orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (VIII) a sparse stony planetoid belt, (IX) a large gas giant, (X) a ringed large gas giant, (XI) a vacuum iceworld, and (XII) a small gas giant form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(VII) Kustil[edit]

(VII) Kustil is designated the mainworld. It orbits Lorali at a mean distance of 5.28 AU (789.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 8 years days 260 hours and a rotation period of 16.5 hours. The axial tilt is 22 degrees. Kustil has a diameter of 8,269 km, a density of 5.08 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.60 G. The world is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Standard, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.91 bar and a composition of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by allergenic spores and pollens of organic origin. Approximately 38% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.4m. Mean surface temperature: 38°C. The atmosphere is dynamic and powerful weather systems driven by the star and the seas sweep across the globe. The climate is seasonal.


Kustil retains two natural satellites, a vacuum worldlet named Bonn and a trace atmosphere worldlet named Sano:

(VIIa) Bonn (UWP Y200000-0, orbiting at 45 Diameters/372,000 km)
(VIIb) Sano (UWP Y110000-0, orbiting at 50 Diameters/415,000 km)

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 216 million km², Land surface area: 134 million km², Water surface area: 82 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Kustil has extensive, abundant native life, with organisms inhabiting every ecological niche. Their metabolic functions power the process of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Kustil has a Class D Starport, a poor quality installation which has few of the 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 only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World technology level[edit]

Kustil possesses a Technology Level of TL–5.

World government[edit]

Kustil is governed by a Feudal Technocracy. Society divides itself based on the technical requirements of the society. Each of these functions are granted as a fief to an individual or group. Leadership of these fiefs determines the head of the government.
