Tor

Ungainly in the Pandia sky, this planet can be seen during rest-watch and journey-watch. Its huge mass can block the view of star NYX and most of the orbiting moons for hours at a time. Its presence alone is responsible for early attempts at religious ideology but the logic of science settled all controversy.

Though chemical sciences are virtually unexplored on the local life bearing planet, Pandia, physical sciences were thoroughly investigated because of planet Tor's close proximity. The basic laws of physics were discovered early in the lifeform's time line and naturally led to particle and experimental physics. Tor's orbiting moons provide a living physics lab where the mapping of celestial bodies is easily accomplished. The affect of planet Tor on planet Pandia's waterways is enormous. The tidal forces are so immense that coastal and river habitats are literally non-existent. Dens located inland are always built on stilts because of constant flooding and ebbing of water tables. Tor's surface material has been a puzzle for the local scientists. Since actual contact with the planet is unrealistic, expense wise, many interesting theories have arisen over the millenia as to its physical properties.

(Many rest-watch stories have been told involving fictional lifeforms and entities who bestow favours to the 'chosen' ones but, at day break, are scoffed at as pup stories and forgotten).

Planet Tor's actual physical make up is of a rare mineral called 'Azura', highly prized among more advanced civilizations. Being a highly reflective and light weight substance, all cloaking devices for planets and ships use high amounts of pure Azura. Many galactic wars have been incited over the eons by the huge need for this material. Its consistency is that of an extremely fine-grade powder which, when disturbed, moves as a viscous fluid.

As of yet, planet Tor has yet to be discovered as a huge commodity. A saving grace for the inhabited world's populations' evolution. Space exploration has been considered but quickly dismissed as a wasteful investment. Because Tor is an undiscovered source of income, the local planet, Pandia, is relatively poor and most of the lifeforms' energies and commerce are spent on food gathering for the populous. The highest resolution view of Tor from planet Pandia displays a smooth, bright surface where, on exceptionally clear nights, a mirror image of Pandia can be seen. Many local territorial discoveries have been accomplished on Pandia because of 'finding them' on Tor's reflective surface. Weather is also easily predictable because of the ability to 'see it coming'.

A lovely system that describes both lifeforms and planets in good detail. I like this system.
