Quivu 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 Non-Aligned world dominated by human sophonts located in the Demon's Eye Subsector of Far Home Sector.

System Data[edit]

Melana-Quivu System[edit]

The primary is Melana, an ordinary orange main sequence star. It has a luminosity of 0.064 Sols, a mass of 0.5376 Sols, and a diameter of 778,000 km. (I) Quivu orbits within the habitable zone and is designated the mainworld. (II) a very thin atmosphere hospitable world, (III) an exotic atmosphere bigworld, (IV) a ringed large gas giant, and (V) a vacuum iceworld form the outer system. Many of the worlds retain satellites.

Mainworld Data[edit]

(I) Quivu[edit]

(I) Quivu is designated the mainworld. It orbits Melana at a mean distance of 0.29 AU (43.4 million km), within the habitable zone. It has an orbital period of 77 days 291 hours: it is tidally locked to Melana. The axial tilt is 10 degrees. Quivu has a diameter of 5,907 km, a density of 5.33 g/cm³, and a surface gravity of 0.45 G. Tidal stresses generated by the gravitational pull of Melana cause frequent geological activity. Its atmosphere is rated as Very Thin, with a mean surface pressure of 0.37 bar and a composition of 80% nitrogen (N2), 19% oxygen (O2), and 1% argon (Ar), water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), ozone (O3), neon (Ne) and other trace gases. Approximately 28% of the surface is covered in seas of liquid water: average tidal ranges exceed 0.3m. Mean surface temperature: -2°C. The climate is rated as Cold and is static, with no seasonal changes during the local year. The atmosphere is slow and minor weather systems driven by the star and the seas drift across the globe.

Mainworld Geography and Topography[edit]

Total surface area: 110 million km², Land surface area: 79 million km², Water surface area: 31 million km².

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Melana-Quivu System[edit]

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

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

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

World starport[edit]

Quivu has a Class C Starport, an average quality installation which includes amenities including unrefined fuel for starships, some brokerage services for passengers and cargo, and a variety of ship provisions. There is a shipyard capable of doing maintenance and other kinds of repair. Ports of this classification generally have only a downport, unless this is a trade port or system with an hostile environment mainworld.

World technology level[edit]

Quivu 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]

Quivu is governed by a Participatory Democracy where eligible voters determine laws and policy. What determines an eligible voter varies. There may be smaller councils or regional bodies to write the policies voted on. Leadership of the government and all members of the bureaucracy are determined by voting population.
