Sturja II

Sturja II

Sturja two orbits Sturja and, as it’s name implies, it is the second planet in the the Sturja System.

The surface of Sturja I is what you might facetiously call “inhospitable”. Temperatures rage wildly between a star-facing “day-side” inferno and a “night-side” tundra. The portend of dawn and dusk on Sturja II are planet wide longitudinal hurricanes caused by explosive sublimation and deposition of the atmosphere from solid to gas and vice versa.

Temperatures vary from 70 K (-458 °F) to (746 °F). Rivers of molten lead form at the equator at local noon time. At midnight local time the surface is covered by dry ice glaciers.

Mean values for habitability remain fairly stable across the planet due to trans orbital winds. The local surface pressure of Sturja I varies far less than the local Albedo or local Greenhouse effect. Essentially the atmosphere, in segments, explodes off of the planet and intermingles with the ring of moons creating the micro nova before it falls back to the surface.

Officially, the only inhabitants of Sturja I are a collection of ascetic monks of The Unity at an monastery / observatory called The Illumination of Radegast.
