Description:

Despite orbiting a relatively cool Class K0 giant, Alnasi presently has a higher mean temperature than Terra, and has been getting ever warmer for the past thousand years or so. The reason for this is an imbalance in the planet’s iron core, created due to the complex gravitational attractions of the two gas giant worlds that formed at unusually close orbital distances to the planet. While the existence of these giants and their gravitational effects did not appear to stunt Alsani’s development into a life-bearing — if somewhat young — planet, their effect has created a world that maintains a rather eccentric orbit.

Alnasi orbits its parent sun (formerly known as Gamma 2-Sagittarius) with an orbital path that shifts radically when the pull of the outer giant outweighs that of the inner giant, an event that occurs once every 1,773 years. Coupled with a wobble that creates a complex seasonal cycle to begin with, this has created a world where animal life has had great difficulty evolving due to long, abruptly recurring ice ages interspersed with periods of flooding, drought, and peculiar storms. When settled initially, Alnasi was hospitable, but on the cool side, with receding polar caps and great expanses of thick and hardy woodlands, and rocky mountains dotting its landscape. Today, centuries later, the planet's average temperature has increased by over fifteen degrees, and deserts have overrun much of the inland woods.

Though scientists have predicted the trend will continue until the planet becomes virtually uninhabitable for a time, the people of Alnasi never felt rushed to take any precautions in anticipation of such an eventuality. Instead, the corporations drawn to Alnasi for its ample veins of common metal alloys and natural gas deposits built a series of cities and industrial complexes across all four of the world's continents. Together with the cities maintained by the descendents of the original colonists, all construction and development is looking to the immediate future.

The spaceport capital city of Gantarius, is located on the northern continent of Lantilles. Alnasi’s other three continents, Hecateas, Insarroples, and Rowenopia, are located in the middle southern latitudes, connected to Lantilles primarily by ocean-going and transcontinental air traffic.
