Monados is a poor, nonindustrial world.

  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • This world has few prospects for economic development.
  • It is a part of the Yimin Jiti in the Veesene Subsector of Halcyon Sector, which is part of the Distant Fringe.

System Data[edit]

Tolost-Monados System[edit]

The primary is Tolost, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.216 Sols, a mass of 0.672 Sols, and a diameter of 978,000 km. (I) Monados orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a dense atmosphere stormworld, (III) a thin atmosphere radworld, (IV) a ringed large gas giant, (V) a small gas giant, and (VI) an exotic atmosphere bigworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Shoko Subsystem[edit]

The companion is Shoko, a magenta-coloured L-type brown dwarf that orbits Tolost at a mean distance of 34.8 AU (orbital position (X), 5.2 billion km) and has an orbital period of 250 years 156 days. It is not luminous, it has a mass of 0.063 Sols and a diameter of 60,000 km. (I) a sparse icy planetoid belt, and (II) a vacuum worldlet form the outer system. The worldlet retains no satellites.

Pimmon Subsystem[edit]

The far companion is Pimmon, an ordinary red main sequence star that lies 1750 AU from Tolost. It has a luminosity of 0.0334 Sols, a mass of 0.4574 Sols, and a diameter of 711,000 km. (I) a standard atmosphere hospitable world orbits within the habitable zone. (II) a thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) a sparse icy planetoid belt, (IV) a small ice giant, (V) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, and (VI) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Monados[edit]

(I) Monados is designated the mainworld. It orbits Tolost at a mean distance of 0.18 AU (26.9 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 34 days 1 hour: it is tidally locked to Tolost. The axial tilt is 1 degree. Monados has a diameter of 4,827 km, a density of 5.16 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.36 G. The world is flexed by tidal forces and is geologically active. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, Tainted, with a mean surface pressure of 0.31 bar and a composition of 77% nitrogen, 22% oxygen, and 1% argon, water vapour, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, neon and other trace gases. The atmospheric taint is caused by gases and sulfur compounds of volcanic origin. Approximately 19% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.2m. Mean surface temperature: 9°C. The atmosphere is active and moderate weather systems driven by the star cross the globe. The climate is static.

Mainworld geography and topography[edit]

Total surface area: 73 million km², Land surface area: 59 million km², Water surface area: 14 million km².

Native lifeforms[edit]

Monados has extensive but primitive native life, consisting entirely of microscopic cyanobacteria-parallels that exist in any location where they can find even a minimal trace of water. Their metabolic processes maintain a cycle of atmospheric renewal.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

No information yet available.

World starport[edit]

Monados 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]

Monados possesses a Technology Level of TL–7.

  • Common Communication technologies for this TL include: Early video and early satellite communication networks.
  • Common Power Generation technologies for this TL include: Early fuel cells, solar energy, and geothermal power sources.
  • Common Transportation technologies for this TL include:
    • Land: Improved automobiles, hovercraft, and bullet trains.
    • Water: Hydrofoils and early triphibians.
    • Air: Hang gliders and supersonic jets.
    • Space: Deep space probes and interplanetary spacecraft (System Craft).

World government[edit]

Monados is governed by a Civil Service Bureaucracy. The leadership of the government is another form (democracy, dictatorship, oligarchy), but the bureaucracy leadership influences policy. The government leadership may select the bureaucracy leadership, but not its membership. Usually the governmental leadership is divided, or incapable of setting policy and the bureaucracy provides a stabilizing influence. The bureaucracy may be the full government bureaucracy or a section with limited jurisdiction but considerable influence like the military.
