The Baphomet System



  • SYSTEM NAME: Baphomet System
  • STAR NAMES: Baphomet
  • AGE: 5 billion years
  • GOVERNMENT: Rebel Squadrons/New Republic

    Lying within the border of New Republic space, the Baphomet System acts as a sort of back door to the Greeop System, and thus it was necessary to deploy a taskforce to protect this area. The Allegiance Wing, sent by the Rebel Squadrons' Redemption Fleet, has vigilantly guarded the system during the Rebel Squadrons tiring wars with multiple Imperial factions in the Minos Cluster Conflict and recent battles within the Cadrel Expanse.

    PRIMARY MILITARY SYSTEM FACILITIES

  • BASE Assembly of the Force (Bethlamore)

    PRIMARY CIVILIAN SYSTEM FACILITIES

  • Lancer Market Center (Eden)
  • Mormo Mining Station (Mormo)

    The following sections provide the physical and social characteristics for the significant planetary body in the Baphomet System:

    Mantus




    A world far too hot to support life, Mantus is a hell. Amazingly enough, a single mining station exists on the fiery planet. However, the station is only operable when it is not facing the sun. Therefore, it sits in one of the few areas that do not melt due to the suns heat during the day hours.

    A strange phenomenon has attracted distant viewers to Mantus. Due to its proximity to the sun, occasional bursts of magma are common during the day. However, these majestic fountains are not the cause of underground pressures, but instead occur as the ground is super heated and then pulled free by the star's gravity.

    Bethlamore




    Bethlamore, despite its age and presence of standing water, was a planet void of life until six hundred years ago. Ithorian cultivators and terraformers transported an entire herdship to Bethlamore in hopes of giving life a jumpstart by having the herdship's buildings and civilized architecture removed to transform the floating city into a floating jungle. A large temple was built in the center of the ship that was used both as a symbol of accomplishment and a defined object to be used to measure the jungles growth outward since placed on Bethlamore. The jungle took, and for six hundred years jungle life has slowly crept through the nearest of valleys, providing Bethlamore with an area of breathable air.

    The temple is now used by Jedi trainees, training in an environment to push their skills to the limit, so that one day these Jedi will be ready to become protectors of peace and justice, as was their past. However, there are rumors that these new orders of Jedi are not the first Force users to call Bethlamore home. Legend tells of a powerful Sith warrior who was trapped and buried beneath the herdship.

    Several small seas dot the otherwise dull brown spatial view of Bethlamore. Most likely shaped by meteors, these seas provide a life source for the jungle since they are often heated to the point that storms are common. However, all recorded bodies of water larger than the streams running through the jungle are lifeless, having no oxygen to support any.

    Eden




    Eden, an elusive name, is a cold, forested world. Originally a colony, most of which were human colonists, the inhabitants farmed the land for survival instead of profit. The Hunt has become the most popular sport, where males of the small towns gather to seek the largest game for one full day each year. The people live content, but uneventful lives.

    An Imperial Garrison was built on the planet while the Emperor's Hammer (EH) made a push for the Baphomet System. Had it not been destroyed by the Rebel Squadrons' Allegiance Wing, it would have given the EH a base within striking distance of the Greeop System. The remains of the base were rebuilt into a small town known as Lancer, which is named for the brave squadron who first made contact with the people of Eden and began to liberate them. Lancer has become the market center for those on Eden who can afford to trade.

    The planet has two large seas that carve large gaps out of the otherwise green and white continents. The largest source of water comes from the melting of the seasonal snow and ice. Villages have popped up in valleys where after such a melting, the rivers overflow. A single starport constructed more in-continent to avoid hostilities from the locals, is the only civilization not based in one of these valleys.

    Shiva




    A completely frozen and desolate world, the extreme cold of Shiva destroys all hopes of life. No ship or probe has ever reached the surface intact. The chill freezes the components and yanks any such craft to the surface. Several craft lie on the surface, trophies to an unconquered world, as a display to the foolhardy.

    The most noticeable feature of Shiva, as seen from the safe outer-atmosphere distance, is Mt. Dominant. Spearheading from the planet's equator this mountain rises an estimated seventeen and a half kilometers, making it by far the largest mountain in the system. The mountain's presence has caused debates between multiple scientific groups as to whether the planet used to have a heated core, capable of pushing plates together enough to form the huge mountain. This current trend of thought also leaves many people to believe that at one time Shiva was a much warmer planet.

    Gorgo




    Gorgo, a gas giant, dwarfs even Shiva with its immense size. Gorgo's atmosphere is far to dense for even the most precise scanning instruments to penetrate, thus little is known of this world other than it's outside appearance. Bright red gasses make up the visible layer of Gorgo, earning it the nickname "Big Red." Very little light penetrates the planet, which in turn makes it appear to glow, almost like a small star. The reflected red light acts as a warning to system travelers, for Gorgo's powerful gravitational field has been known to pull many things into its crushing belly including, researchers say, a former second moon. A large dark spot exists roughly 40% north of the equator where scientists say the site of the impact is located. Gorgo's second moon, Vertigo, is also continuously pulled by the planet, which explains it's irrational and extreme axil tilt and very fast rotation.

    PLANET NAME: Gorgo

    Mormo




    The planet Mormo is a natural wonder, the surface gas reflects light in a multitude of colors giving the planet a rainbow like effect as viewed from space. And while these gasses have attracted the eyes of many adventurers, the unseen gasses below have attracted the intentions of many people looking for credits. The planet is rich in natural gasses, many of which can be converted and used as fuel. This fuel source being so close to the Rebel Squadrons combat zone has made Mormo, and the Mormo Mining Station, a booming location for non-combatants making money off the war effort.

    The small city is really the Mormo Mining Station, home to gas miners and businessmen. The station built for both collection and conversion of gasses, was also designed with miner's homes in mind. The floating populace is the only location on Mormo where life can be found, for further down the planetary pressures become fatally crushing.

    Another phenomenon to the planet is the backward thunderclouds. The hydrogen gas that forms these clouds fill with energy, and different gasses below these clouds create a powerful positive charge. On normal planets the ground would form a negative charge. This reversal causes the lightning bolts to shoot outward from the planet. The spectacle is rare, only once roughly every twenty-eight years as the hydrogen gas builds up.
