Arcturus is a planet.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Arcturus

Arcturus is the first planet in the HUB10-K-5F Foundation system. It lies 68,572ks from the system’s space station.

Arcturus is a hot, low-population, all-around unfriendly planet. The surface isn’t much to look at, a rough medley of yellow, orange, and brown stone that erodes in chunks, leaving a “step-strata” effect that resembles the results of strip mining. Other strange shapes and patterns cover the face of the world, including serpentine hill formations, ground rings (not mineable resources), and massive cubic configurations with hollow interiors.

The subterranean view is much more attractive: the planet’s substrata consists of a dense, royal blue granite that lines the planet’s caves, which may offer protection from the high surface temperatures but not necessarily the abundance of aggressive sentinels that make any foray on the Arcturus a risky endeavor. Fervidium is available on Smyrno, the next planet in the system, making the presence of Gravitino Balls—in admittedly prolific numbers—the only substantive reason to pay a visit to the handful of Arcturians who live here.

Atmosphere and climate[edit | edit source]

Surface conditions remain in the mid-60-degree range at all times. Oddly, temperatures actually rise a bit during the nighttime hours, going from the daytime 64.0 °C to 66.2 °C after the sun sets (sub-surface magma venting may contribute to this anomaly). Heat storms are very rare.

Waypoints[edit | edit source]

There’s not much to find on Arcturus, aside from the occasional drop pod, shelter shack, and a few abandoned buildings.

Notable locations[edit | edit source]

Only one Trading Post, Arcturus Station (on the far side of the planet from the system’s space station) has been located at this point. No other prominent locations have been noted.

Life[edit | edit source]

Fauna[edit | edit source]

Eight known species of small fauna wander the planet’s surface and sky, mostly consisting of upright-walking mammals and raptors (more than one of which is predatory), as well as a bear-sized, horn-headed form of stegosaurus.
