Pummel does not meet the criteria for any standard classification.

  • This die back world was once settled and developed, but the inhabitants have either died off or left leaving behind the ruins and remnants of their civilization.
  • This world is a "Twilight Zone World", a planet that is tidally-locked to its primary star, giving a hot pole, a cold pole and a twilight zone in-between.
  • This is a cold world with an overall climate is at the lower temperature range of human-congruous sophont endurance.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The system has a single primary star.

  • The inner rocky worlds of the system orbit in a compact resonant chain around the star.
  • The outer giant worlds follow larger near-Bodean orbits.

The mainworld orbits within the stars habitable zone.

  • The world orbits far inside of the stars jump shadow, requiring long manoeuver times to or from a safe jump distance.
  • The world is one of a resonant chain of planets that have related orbital periods.

Pummel has the remains of a small human outpost on its surface.

Mainworld Size (S)[edit]

Pummel is a Meso World between 12,000km and 13,500km in diameter. The world has a standard gravity between 0.8G and 1.1G. The horizon will appear about 5.1km away. Vessels with 1G of thrust should check with local starport authorities before attempting to land using emergency power.

Mainworld Atmosphere (A)[edit]

Pummel has a pressure of 2.5 or greater atmospheres. A Dense & High Pressure Atmosphere typically requires no survival gear under many conditions. Pressure at or below sea level is too great to support life but is breathable at higher altitudes. TL–5 or more advanced survival gear is required to settle this world.

Mainworld Hydrosphere (H)[edit]

Pummel has 25-35% of its surface covered by liquid water. It has a few small seas. Wilderness refueling is possible. Water for the inhabitants will be recycled.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Exotic native life. Its metabolic functions drive the process of atmospheric renewal.

The system is a desolate frontier. At one point it was the site of an outpost but all that now remains are decayed ruins.

  • Commercial traffic is rare: the system sees very few visiting ships.
  • Commo only picks up natural background noise and static.
  • There are no active navigation beacons.
  • A navigation beacon may occasionally be active.
