Novarckas is an enormous artificial world constructed out of a Dyson sphere built around a red dwarf binary to another similar star. The opposite star is known as Igniculus.
Novarckas was crafted by the Empire of Arckas to serve as a hub for intergalactic politics. This Empire extended across several galaxies. It was built as a megastructure surrounding a star binary to another red dwarf. Overtime, it was padded with rocks and soil, and a thick gassy atmosphere developed attracting dust particles, debris and other objects. This planet and its moons soon prospered, becoming a major capital.
Today, Novarckas remains an area of scientific interest, and many secret experiments are performed here. Notably, it was studied by the Omni Empire, jumpstarting their technology to remarkable levels in a short a period of time.
Novarckas has a gigantic atmosphere of a stable mixture of nitrogen and oxygen held together via artificial machines. It appears as a gas giant binary to its star. It is likely that Igniculus was artificially adjusted through unknown means to be set at an appropriate distance from Novarckas.
Some irregularly shaped moons have come so close to Novarckas, that overtime, they have evolved their own ecosystems. Though technically still moons, such objects are referred to as floating continents. Some life forms, such as those at the core, were genetically engineered long ago, eventually evolving to massive proportions. The Arckasian Great Tree for example stands at ten miles high and can live for millions of years.
The core receives little sunlight in comparison to its moons, because the sunlight has to penetrate thousands of miles of atmosphere. During the day, the core is about the brightness of twilight, and cold at night. However, artificial convection currents keep the planet relatively warm: 70 F on the day side and 20 F on the night side. As a result, snowfall is common during the night.
Points of interestEdit
At the solid core is a massive moutain called Mt. Arterius, the tallest known mountain in the Milky Way Galaxy. It towers at 14,000 kilometers, and a massive city known as Arckadium exists both within and on the outside of the mountain. A broken portal, presumed to have been a smaller scale Stone Ring, appears at the mountain's base. When the city was functional, this is where citizens would have entered the city.
A powerful magnetic force near the mountain creates a comfortable 1.1 G. How this magnetic force works still remains a scientific mystery, although it has begun to fall into disrepair.
Today the city remains abandoned and in disarray. The AI Na'zrah still remains within the Communion Hall, the largest room in the entire city as a manager of the systems. Balconies circle the room for 100 stories.
These are enormous carvings built into the side of Mt. Arterius. Each statue depicts one of the Ancient races that lived in the city of Arckadium - most notably, one of them is a statue of an Omni.
The ecosystem of Novarckas is highly varied. The creatures can grow to enormous proportions.
- Arckasian Great Tree - A tree that grows to ten miles high. Their seeds, the size of mansions, drift away into the atmosphere.
- Godfish - A massive, toothless fish with a mouth that can open up to swallow 1,000 acres of material. In fact, entire sub ecosystems exist within the bowels of the massive creature.
- Titans' Lapdog - A giant canine creature, the largest land predator on Novarckas. It has eight muscular legs.
- Magnus Eagle - Large bird-like creatures. These giant birds can fly between Novarckas's moons that lie within its atmosphere. As a result, the creature can carry other life forms between moons.
- Jonahias - An enormous whale-like creature 40 times bigger than a Godfish. They dwell near the ocean's surface and are sometimes mistaken as continents.
Novarckas has thousands of large moons.
A volcanic moon that orbits Igniculus, the star. 66 Brunikor is home to a strange phenomenon where clumps of energy amass themselves into beings with rudimentary instincts. These are called ghasts - they devour anyone that is unprepared, vaporizing them by touching them. To top it all off, ghasts emit high-pitched screeches that disrupt electronics - essentially causing them to shut off. This may effectively disable spaceships, leaving the crew stranded.
Ghasts, as dangerous as they are, have rarely been seen outside of 66 Brunikor. The intense heat and energy is what they live on and is much more ideal place to inhabit. Being in space for too long will cause them to disappear into nothingness as they cannot tolerate the extremely cold temperatures.
It is suspected that the moon has a gateway to Brunikor, though this remains unconfirmed. The moon, approximately the same diameter of Earth, has large pillar shaped formations as well as many volcanoes.
A large, rocky moon approximately 1 AU from Novarckas. As the name suggests, the moon was believed to have been an ancient fortress. It was used to defend the planet from intruders such as the Collective. Hundreds of giant dormant laser cannons, capable of firing giant streams of molten iron, can be found dotting the moon.
An Earth-sized moon within Novarckas's atmosphere. It is tidally locked to the planet, but it's gravity remains at a comfortable 1.2 G. It has its own unique ecosystem from the rest of the planet, though much of Novarckas's flying life forms can travel between moons. Currently, it serves as a research outpost for the Karnasaurs. Though the moon regularly undergoes long periods of nighttime, the brightness of the stars nearby keep the planet well-lit even at night.
83 Fell TempleEdit
A moon roughly the size of Venus that is closer than most other moons to Novarckas' surface. Notable for the whole of the moon's ecosystem to be of swamps and wetland, it's well known for the massive temple that has been built upon it. Many don't even consider it just a temple but an interconnected temple city, as the structure is so large it circles upon itself. Researchers aren't sure whether the temple was used to worship the Titan King or to imprison dangerous enemies of the Titans, though some suggest both. The moon is a dangerous place to go to and explore, as both wildlife and eons old traps still lay dormant in the temple waiting for intruders to prey on.
Named after the plane in the Erudite Tales holonovels, this moon is roughly the size of Mars. It is a varied world home to many life-forms, as well as the ruins of a destroyed civilization. The builders of the ruins remain unknown. 47 Eidyn is considered to be a Karalian research base.
362 Pythein is a distant moon, cold and covered in ice. Deep underground is a sanctum that was once home to the Oracle Antocula before it was indoctrinated by Vernietigen and later destroyed. The frozen environment was ideal for a large computational device to prevent overheating.
