Lispid is an icy, barren vacuum world, with no overt population, government, or law level, which would warrant hazardous environment precautions if anyone lived here.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The system is a binary, made up of two very widely separated stars. Each star has its own system of worlds.

  • The two stars orbit a barycenter once every few centuries.
  • The listed worlds are divided between the primary star and the secondary star.
  • The worlds of each system follow near-Bodean orbits around their respective central star.

Lispid is considered a part of the Dennu Bridge, a J-3 route across a region called the Efusa Rift.

System Data[edit]

The worlds of the system have been surveyed. They consist of:

Mainworld Data[edit]

Lispid is a satellite of a gas giant.

The mainworld and its gas giant primary orbit within the primary stars outer system.

  • Their orbital distance lies just outside of the stars jump shadow.
  • An exotic atmosphere superterran secondary world orbits within the stars habitable zone.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

Lispid is a Small World between 4,000km and 5,600km in diameter. The world has low gravity between 0.24G and 0.34G. The horizon will appear about 3km away.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

Lispid 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]

Lispid has 05-15% of its surface covered by ice, either in vast sheets or contained deep within craters or fractures on the surface. Wilderness refueling is possible. Water for the inhabitants can be got by mining and melting ice.

  • The surface of the world is composed of a crust of ice many kilometers thick.
  • Much of the surface is cratered and covered in regolith and thick dust of meteoric origin, leaving only around 10% of the icy outer shell exposed.
  • Below the outer icy shell is a world-ocean of liquid water.
