Vorto is a Class M red dwarf star in the North Arm believed to have been an outpost for the Genodraco Legion at some point. The star is located within the region of Taroran territory known as the Frontier Worlds.



Caldarius is a large terrestrial planet with intense volcanic activity.


Anguis is a large iron planet that orbits close to its star. It has a thin atmosphere of xenon and argon.


The largest of the moons of Ascensores. It is too small to sustain an atmosphere, but it is rich with iron and palladium, making it a potential candidate to set up mining facilities.


One of Ascensores's moons, it is a rich source of iridium and iron.


Anguis is a barren superterran world mostly made of silicate, and with a thin atmosphere. The planet is a potential candidate for mining because it contains rich deposits of iridium from being almost constantly pelted by meteors.


Main article: Silva

Silva is a small terrestrial planet, tidally locked to its star. Oddly, the roles of flora and fauna on this planet are reversed. Therefore, the planet has large, carnivorous plants and photosynthetic animals. Many thousand years ago, a planet-sized object collided with Silva's moon creating a ring system and four large asteroids.


Gyrus is a large planet made almost entirely of water. It has constant cloud cover and a tiny rocky core. As it is at the far edge of the star's habitable zone, temperature fluctuations are common.


A small gas giant turquoise in color. It has a large ring system. The planet is tilted at 45 degrees after a large meteor impact.


One of Ennosigaeus's moons, Praelino is a world covered in hydrocarbon lakes, and hosts methane-based life within it.


Mendosus is a brown dwarf 40 jovian masses. Like all brown dwarves, it is not massive enough to sustain hydrogen-helium fusion, though it has captured several stellar objects within its orbit. It is believed to be an extrasolar capture.
