The Anshife System

(Graphic)


  • SYSTEM NAME: Anshife System
  • STAR NAMES: Anshife (dormant star)
  • AGE: 4 billion years
  • GOVERNMENT: Rebel Squadrons/New Republic

    The Anshife System is located conveniently midway through the Cadrel Expanse, which would have made it an excellent temporary base for repairs between battles. Unfortunately, the fact that the sole star of the system is dormant and that no planet on the system is capable of life rather limited the system's usefulness in this regard. The Anshife System is, however, of utmost interest to both New Republic scientists and industrialists alike. The scientists seek answers from the silent geological wonders of the system, and the industrialists seek to exploit the vast untouched natural reserve of minerals.

    The following sections provide the physical and social characteristics for each of the significant planetary bodies in the Anshife System:

    Etrucia




    A quiet world on the rim of the Anshife system, Etrucia is a spherical rock consisting of deep valleys and jagged mountains. The rock has a curious blue-green hue, which gives the world the appearance of being covered in water from a far distance. There is literally no atmosphere on the planet, and no humanoid has ever set foot on the planet. An Old Republic reconnaissance drone from the nearby Genji system crashed here some hundreds of years ago, and was never recovered. Old reports state that the systems of the drone were scrambled by an intense magnetic field, possibly emanating from the planet.

    PLANET NAME: Etrucia

    Anomaly 5189078




    Catalogued by an Old Republic expeditionary team that whizzed through the system, Anomaly 5189078 is a gigantic hunk of ice. Most curious, the ice hunk seems to have some gigantic engines attached to it. On the other end is a small building which appears to be a bridge of some sort. Who created this flying ice cube and what purpose it was meant to serve is still unclear, but the vessel has not moved in years and has settled into a stable orbit. Although not technically a planet, it is a major point of interest.

    Praetoria




    A turbulent world with a violent atmosphere, Praetoria is a gas giant. Yellowish gases swirl about the planets atmosphere, driven by powerful winds. The atmosphere is comprised mainly of monoxide. Although nobody has ever been down to the surface of the world, it is imagined that mineral wealth on the planet may be significant.

    PLANET NAME: Praetoria
    FUNCTION: Mining
    TYPE: Gas
    RADIUS: 6,000 km
    DISTANCE FROM STAR (AUs): 1.30

    TEMPERATURE: Frigid-Hot
    ATMOSPHERE: Dangerous, Type IV
    GRAVITY: Heavy (1.35 of Standard)
    TERRAIN: None
    LENGTH OF DAY: 191 Standard Hours
    LENGTH OF YEAR: 36 Standard Days

    Rastine




    Rastine is a calm and regal terrestrial planet. Although it is freezing, like all other planets in the system, it projects a certain majesty. A light atmosphere gives way to clouds, although it never rains. It is the best charted of any planet in the Anshife system, and it is widely known that the planet has extremely rich and untouched sources of such crude materials as bronze. The jewel in the crone of the system as far as the mining industry is concerned, Rastine promises to be the source of major industrialization by the force that occupies the territory.

    PLANET NAME: Rastine
    FUNCTION: Mining
    TYPE: Terrestrial
    RADIUS: 2,000 km
    DISTANCE FROM STAR (AUs): 0.87

    ATMOSPHERE: Type I (Breathable)
    GRAVITY: Standard (0.95 of Standard)
    TERRAIN: Snow
    LENGTH OF DAY: 20 Standard Hours
    LENGTH OF YEAR: 411 Standard Days
    MOON(S): None

    Obeia




    The smallest planet in the Anshife system is also the planetoid closest to the dormant star. Only one eighth the size of the star it orbits, the world of Obeia is plain and gray. No fissures or mountains mark its surface, and there is no atmosphere. In fact, the planet seems to be a near-perfect sphere. Geologists hypothesize that beneath the crust of the world lies significant deposits of iron ore, simply waiting to be drilled out.

    PLANET NAME: Obeia
    FUNCTION: Mining
    TYPE: Terrestrial
    RADIUS: 950 km
    DISTANCE FROM STAR (AUs): 0.67
    AXIAL TILT: 0
