Re: About the Long Night, help needed please

P.325 or the core says: In the First Horizon, man- kind has tamed the Dark between the Stars and uses it to create energy and to sculpt life. This practice has in turn warped parts of the First Horizon, especially its rulers. "In the First Horizon, mankind has tamed the Dark between the Stars and u...

Re: Lubau

Ok. Maybe you're right. I had a diffrent interpretation of  " the same side was always facing the sun" but yours is more plausible. Still the info in book about 43 °   Axis tilt is wrong. In your model axis tilt of Lubau is 43 °  in position A, ca.90 ° in position B, -43 in position in C ° , and -90...

Re: About the Long Night, help needed please

It is said that after the Portal Wars, the Third Horizon was isolated and fell into a major economic downturn and technological regression, and that the Firstcome basically lost their History and became planet bound local cultures with all previous history becoming vague myths and legends. Or somet...

Re: Lubau

Same page, one sentence before the mention about no seasons: "The very first thing the starfarers  noticed when they arrived at Lubau was that the axial tilt of the planet was 43 degrees and  that the same side was always facing the sun ." and in second column: "Farthest to the  north, where the sun...

Re: Lubau

How about this? This doesn't work. It shows  that axial tilt of Lubau changes from 43  degrees to -43  in half a year (which is 91 years long) - in reality object like planets can change its axial tilt but it takes  hundreds of thousands to millions of years . It would cause probably catastrophic c...

Re: Lubau

Wow, I got my mind blown. I hope that adventure suite will be printed in english, cause the premise sounds promising.
Thank you for explanation. It sheds light on situation, and at least I know what I can afford with storytelling.

Re: Lubau

Well, I get it that unusual axial tilt is caused by sth that will be/is explained in some adventures. (BTW, can you tell which adventures?) I don't have a problem with the axis per se, but the combination with other assumptions like one side always facing a sun and difference beetween time of planet...

Lubau

Lubau - the abberant first planet of Kua system. Day length - 27 hours, sidereal year - 91 days, axial tilt 43 degrees and one side always facing the sun. I'm not an expert, but does this configuration make any sense, astronomically speaking? Even a little bit? I mean, if one side of the planet is a...
