The Hope System is a star system located in the Mid Arm of the Ambrosia Galaxy. It served as the home system of the Havenite species, the Havenite Republic, and the Human Alliance.

Planetary Bodies

Hope Asteroid Belt

Orbit of the Hope Asteroid Belt.

Brief Description

The Hope Asteroid Belt is a mass of asteroids in orbit around the star Hope. Its members range from size of around two kilometers, to two hundred kilometers in diameter. The Hope Asteroid Belt, like all asteroid belts is a large expanse of asteroids orbiting its parent star, while remaining in orbital resonance with itself. This asteroid belt is also where the two dwarf planets Petram and Iusto reside. Because of its close proximity to Hope, its members are very hot, usually ranging in temperature from around 160°C to 350°C. Because of this extreme heat, and very little need for colonies, the asteroid belt is left uninhabited, other then robotic mining operations sent from Petram. Originally the asteroid belt was the first planet of the Hope System. This ancient planet was a scorched Selena world around 7800 kilometers in diameter. However this planet would gradually be torn apart due to tidal forces inflicted upon it by Hope, and the gas giant Heittrisa. Other then small mining operations by the Havenites, and later the Ambrosia Alliance, no civilization has made their home there.

The ancient planet that would later become the Hope Asteroid belt, fully formed around 4,794,000,000 BCE. However due to tidal forces this planet would be gravitationally torn apart throughout the remaining four million years of its existence. During the Etymology era the Havenites would send robotic probes to mine its asteroids. And the Etymology's successor, the Ambrosia Alliance, would continue to do the same.

Hope - 1: Petram

Petram from space.

Brief Description

Petram is a hot tidally locked S-Class dwarf planet and is the first planetary body of the Hope System. It is rich in minerals such as iron and gold. Other than Petram Station, it's only inhabited by sparsely placed mining stations. Being so close to it's parent star, life on Petram is very difficult. Miners living on the dwarf planet often need to retreat within structures to escape the blistering heat and radiation produced by the star. Although the world has a small population it is a major iron and gold resource for Alliance controlled worlds, like it's sister dwarf planet Iusto. Petram is also most well known for being the area where the First Alliance War began, at the Battle of Petram on 10.388 CE.

Petram was formed around 4,795,109,000 standard years ago. Originally, Petram was the moon of a duel planet system with its sister world Iusto.  However, ever since they're formation the two gradually drifted apart, ultimately culminating around 3,210,005,222 BCE when the two escaped each others gravity and became independent bodies. In 2,764,212,067 BCE its two dwarf moons, Myoone and Kekat were formed when a large asteroid collided with Petram, creating Iron Crater. During the Etymology Era, the Havenites of Petram's sister-world, Haven, would construct massive cities across its surface. As they did with all worlds in their home system. These cities would however be utterly destroyed by both the C.Y.R.E.X, and by constant erosion due to radiation.  When human colonists arrived within the Hope System, they sent exploratory probes to map out the composition of the many worlds housed within it. Once they discovered it's abundance of precious metals such as iron and gold they opted to create a small mining colony on the dwarf planet. Thus, in 10,277 CE, Petram Station was founded. Petram served as a major mining colony for years, even after the Human Alliance of Ambrosia's economic disaster, it never faltered.  However, on June 16th 10,388 CE the True Alliance of Man made themselves known at the Battle of Petram. Though the fighting only lasted six hours and the True Alliance was defeated, it was enough to destroy most of Petram Station, and kill over four hundred Human Alliance soldiers. After the battle, the people of Petram were urged to return to work. Reluctantly, Petram Station continued supplying the Human Alliance, and then the Ambrosia Alliance.  

The geography of Petram consists of large areas of flat deserts due to the radiation produced by Hope. As well as small canyons, craters, and grooves. The most notable geological feature on Petram is Iron Crater, a large crater around forty kilometers in diameter. As well, large yellow-colored limestone areas are strung amongst the endless dust fields.

As Petram lacks any form of atmosphere, it does no experince any dynamic climate that changes due to wind conditions and or seasons. Instead, the dwarf planet constantly gets bombarded by large amount of radiation from its parent star, slowly eroding the stone surface of the world, This aforementioned radiation is at the same level across the entire surface, leaving the possibility of terraforming highly unlikely.

During the Etymology Era, Petram would have a fairly large population of five hundred million, with most of its inhabitants being Havenite. However now the dwarf planet has a very small population of around 20,570 people, with the vast majority being humans. This small population was also almost completely located within the dwarf planet's largest colony, Petram Station. However smaller towns made of single families could be found in other areas.

Like most worlds under the control of the Havenites, Petram didn't have a unique culture during this period of its history, operating identically to most worlds their people lived on. The current culture of Petram and its colony are completely based around mining, as it was the only purpose it served. Almost all jobs available to the populace are related to something in the mining of the dwarf's planets many minerals.

Petram Station is the capital of Petram. It is a mid size mining colony with a surface area of around one hundred kilometers squared. The majority of Petram's populace is located there with a population of around 19,800 people. It was the site where the Battle of Petram took place, igniting the First Alliance War in 10,388 CE Petram Station is a sort of tower structure made up of four levels. From bottom to top they are the Mining District, the Commercial District, the Housing District, and the Governmental District. Petram Station is powered through large solar panels, gathering energy from Hope. With the star being so close Petram Station gathers a lot of energy, and with Petram's permanent days the solar panels gather energy constantly. The Mining District was where the majority of Petram Station's job market was located. Most citizens are miners, gathering precious metals with robotic instruments, they are paid the standard miner wages implemented by the Q.U.I. which is around four ACU per hour, they work an eight standard hour work day, five standard days a week, with opportunities for promotion. The district has large tunnels crisscrossing underground at mineral deposits. This is where Petram Station workers spend most of their time, using elevators and small land vehicles to traverse the large underground expanses. Holographic map posts are located at key spots within the tunnels for miners to find their way. If a miner was to get lost, or stuck within a hole of some kind they can activate a radio beacon on their suits and rescue workers would be alerted to their position. Then they would be taken to medical facilities located within the tunnels.

Other notable locations within the tunnels are small recreational areas where workers can receive refreshments, seating, and entertainment on their break times. These are spread around two kilometers away from each other. On the surface, the Mining District has fitting rooms where miners can put on their protective suits. Fueling depots where land and air vehicles can be fueled and repaired. And landing platforms where extra planetary ships can land. The Commercial District is where businesses are located. Be them small family owned, or massive chain corporations. It functions as a mall would on Earth  during the 21st Century. Stores, services, lodging, and restaurants can be found there. The Housing District is where Petram Station's population lives, It holds long expanses of apartments, each one is around nine hundred and forty one square feet. What was in said apartments depends on the residence within them. Rent on Petram Station is around fifty C-Units per month. The Governmental District is where polices affecting Petram are held. The prime minister office and Petram senate is located there. Only elected officials of Petram's local government, or Ambrosia Alliance officials are allowed within it. Petram Station's police force is also located there.

Hope - 2: Iusto

Iusto from space.

Brief Description

Iusto is the second planetary in the Hope System. It is a hot tidally locked S-Class dwarf planet. Much like its sister planet Petram, Iusto is rich in minerals such as iron, gold, and silver. Iusto is the main mining colony within the Hope System, housing the major mining colony Minière, located in the twilight area between the day and night side of the dwarf planet. Unlike its sister world Petram, however, life on Iusto is much easier, but only within the twilight area. Most of the dwarf planet's population is housed within the aforementioned twilight area. However, some small colonies are located at mineral deposits on the night and day side of the world. The local government of Iusto holds major power within the Q.U.I., an organization for the betterment of Ambrosia Alliance mining colonies.

Iusto formed around 4,795,109,000 standard years ago. Originally, it was the planet of a duel planet system with it's sister world Petram. The small world would become home to the Crepusculum Circulum, a large ring like structure located in the twilight region of the world that is somewhat hospital that spanned across the entire circumference of the dwarf planet. This ancient city would be left mostly destroyed however due to the C.Y.R.E.X. However, ever since they're formation the two gradually drifted apart, ultimately culminating around 3,210,005,222 BCE when the two escaped each others gravity and became independent bodies, taking with it the dwarf moon Liber. On 532,120,467 BCE, Iusto's gravity captured the dwarf moon Fre from the Hope Asteroid Belt. Unlike Petram, Iusto was visited by the ancient Ambrosian civilizations quite often. Some abandoned mining colonies exist on the dwarf planet, along with satellites that are no longer functional. When human colonists arrived within the Hope System they mapped out the small world, discovering its vast amount of precious metals. It was determined that mining colonies could safely and with ease be created in the twilight region of the tidally locked world. In 10,266 CE, construction of Minière began, and concluded on 10,271 CE. Smaller mining colonies were constructed at mineral deposits throughout the 10270s. During the First Alliance War, Iusto was mostly untouched by the conflict, however on 10,400 CE the then prime minster of Iusto was convicted for collusion with the True Alliance of Man, diverting mineral resources to the rebel group.

Iusto's surface is quite flat with very view mountains, hills, crater, or canyons. Instead, large dust fields dominant large areas of the dwarf planet, as well as massive salt flats. The most notable geological feature on Iusto is the "Crepusculum Circulum," A large artificial structure constructed by the Havenites that spanned across Iusto's twilight region and served as their makeshift colony.

Much like many tidally locked worlds, Iusto's climate depends on what side of the world is in question. The side that faces its parent star experinces harsh heats, while the side that faces away is quite cold. In between those regions is a small twilight area that stretches across the entire diameter of the dwarf planet.

Originally, Iusto had a massive population for an uninhabitable dwarf planet of around one billion, most living within the Crepusculum Circulum. Which remains ruined upon its surfaced to this day. Afterwards, the Human Alliance of Ambrosia would set up their own city in the vicinity of the aforementioned structure.

Iusto's culture while it was under the control of the Havenites was not very unique or interesting, as was the same for almost every world they controlled. Now, Iusto's culture operates completely around the mining of its resources, much alike its sister world Petram.

Minière is the capital of Iusto, it is a large mining colony with a surface area of around three hundred and seventy kilometers squared. The majority of Iusto's populace is located there with a population of around 697,000 people. Unlike most Ambrosia mining colonies, Minière functions more like your traditional city with counties, large roads, spaceports, and military bases. Minière receives its power from thermal energy from Iusto's core through a long interconnected complex of connector tubes across the entire colony. Constant maintenance on these tubes are preformed by automated machines. The colony is surrounded by a large practically see-through dome like structure, four hundred kilometers in length, and two kilometers in height, that produces oxygen and standard Earth like gravity. It also produces an artificial standard day-night cycle due to Minière's location.

Most of Minière's job market belongs to their mining industry, like all Ambrosia mining colonies most citizens are miners, gathering precious metals with robotic instruments and are paid around four C-Units per hour, work an eight standard hour work day, five standard days a week, with opportunities for promotion. Minière's mines tunnel throughout the entire dwarf planet, these tunnels are so large that entire sub-colonies have been founded within them. Some miners have made their homes in apartment complexes within some of the cavern's walls. Each one ranges in size depending on the income level of their residences. It doesn't have designated areas for housing or businesses, instead they are mixed with each other across the entire colony. Usually a business will be separated by around sixteen houses but this isn't absolute. It also holds large terrarium structures for produce to be grown and purchased by the colonists. Soil used in these terrariums is imported from planet Haven since Iusto's soil cannot naturally grow plant life. The surprisingly high quality of this produce has lead to the majority of the human populace to adopt a vegan life style.

Hope - 3: Heittrisa

Heittrisa from space.

Brief Description

Heittrisa is the third and oldest planetary body of the Hope System. It is a warm gas giant world. It has a distinct white atmosphere with purple and grey cloud patterns. Heittrisa has been largely left alone by the Ambrosia Alliance other then robot mining operations to gather helium for various purposes which are processed at Cevla Village, the colony on its moon Cevla. Its massive gravity constantly tugs on Petram, Iusto and Haven. It serves as a sort of cosmic vacuum, directing asteroids away from the three smaller worlds. Some of the dwarf moons around Heittrisa would have collided with Haven millions of years ago, but were thankfully caught by the gas giant's gravity.

Heittrisa formed shortly after the formation of its parent star Hope around 4,796,109,000 standard years ago. The debris from it's formation collected into its moon Cevla not long after. Around 4,200,340,120 BCE the gas giant's immense gravity captured the fourth planet of the Hope System Blekiur, making the desert world its second moon. After this Haven became the new fourth planet of the system. During the Etymology Era, Heittrisa became the first planet imaged from space by the Havenites during their early space age on 2,489,466,170 BCE. It was chosen to be the first body visited due to ancient Havenite societies viewing the planet as a god in the night sky. They had some floating colonies located within the relativity cool regions of the planet as well. These fell into the planet when the C.Y.R.E.X destroyed the Havenites. When human colonists arrived within the Hope System, they left it largely untouched, other then observing and measuring the composition of the world. However in 10290 CE the Human Alliance of Ambrosia created a small mining colony on the moon of Cevla to collect hydrogen that was mined from robotic probes. During the Second Alliance War, the True Alliance of Man secretly stationed electromagnetic pulse drivers deep within the cloud layer of the gas giant to sabotage the terraforming of Blekiur. Thus, on 10509 CE the drivers were activated and caused the atmosphere temperature regulators to malfunction and raised the moon's temperature from six degrees Celsius to 148 degrees Celsius, evaporating the moon's water and causing a run away green house effect, making it uninhabitable.

Hope - 6: Acconda

Acconda from space.

Brief Description

Acconda is the sixth planetary body of the Hope System. It is a cold ice giant with distinct tan, green, and purple color patterns. Acconda is sometimes referred to as a "Pseudo-Ice Giant" since ice accounts for very little of its chemical makeup, though because it's there, the planet is an ice giant. It is made up of primary hydrogen. It serves as a sort of Shepard for comets entering the outer Hope System, all twenty-three of its dwarf moons were captured by interstellar comets entering the star system. The planet has a very thin and tenuous ring system made up of ice and dust particles. This ring is replenished by small meteoroids hitting the surfaces of Acconda's moons. Acconda has been largely left alone by the Ambrosia Alliance other than robot mining operations to gather its abundance of hydrogen for various purposes. This hydrogen is processed at Luxaria the capital of its moon Luxpetram.

Acconda fully formed around 4,795,900,000 standard years ago alongside its moons Luxpetram and Coilsa. In the remainder of the 4,000,000,000 BCEs, it would capture interstellar comets with its massive gravity. During the Etymology era, the Havenites would construct large floating cities across the ice giant around 1,640,020,170 BCE. However, these would fall into the planet after they were destroyed by the C.Y.R.E.X Around 1,600,215,000 BCE Acconda's orbit would become radically altered. This lead to the ice giant planet to enter within the orbit of its sister world, Douma. This event, unfortunately, led to the destruction of all life on the aforementioned planet as it caused the once temperate Terra world's temperature to rise exponentially, evaporating its oceans, leading to the life on the planet's death. Whether or not this was done naturally or artificially is unknown. When human colonists arrived within the Hope System they left the planet largely untouched, however, they took particular interest in its moon Luxpetram due to its unusually thick atmosphere for a Selena world. After the construction of Luxaria in 10,284 CE, they would send robots to the ice giant to mine its abundance of hydrogen.

Major Moons

Hope - 3.1: Cevla

Cevla from space.

Brief Description

Cevla is the first major moon of Heittrisa. It is also the third oldest object in the system, including its parent star. It is a hot S-Class world. Cevla is an average selena world, Its the ninth largest Selena world within the system, even being larger then the dwarf planet Petram. Cevla and Petram share many similarity's in composition and appearance. However unlike Petram, Cevla has very little precious metals, being almost made entirely out of rock. Despite this, the moon is a member of the Ambrosia Mining Council. Being so close to its parent planet it gets constantly battered by radiation and tidal forces. Small volcanic activity happens in isolated areas across the moon. Cevla has an average surface for your typical Selena world, craters, fractures, and small mountains dot its ancient surface. Large areas of dust mounds can be found strung about the surface as well.

it holds the small colony Cevla Village, this colony exists to collect hydrogen from robots mining the gas from Cevla's parent planet. It served as the location where evacuees of Blekiur's failed terraforming went to seek refuge. The moon's population is very low due to there being better bodies in the system to live on. The moon's small population's culture is based around the mining and processing of hydrogen from its parent planet.

Cevla formed shorty after its parent planet Heittrrisa 4,796,109,000 standard years ago, when left over dust from the gas giant collected, forming the moon we see today. Around 3,999,201,009 BCE, one of Heittrrisa's dwarf moons was affected by Cevla's gravity, turning the asteroid into a dwarf sub-satellite of the moon. This asteroid was nicknamed "Cevla Minor." During the Etymology Era, the Havenites constructed large communication arrays around the entire moon to send information across the floating cites within Heittrisa's cloud layer in 2,489,020,142 BCE, when the species became an early type 2 civilization. However these stopped functioning after the Havenite's destruction. When humans colonists arrived within the Hope System they left the moon untouched for a few years. But on 10,290 CE construction of Cevla Village began nd concluded. The colony operates almost entirely automatically, but the small population oversees its functions.

Hope 3.2 - Blekiur

Blekiur from space.

Brief Description

Blekiur is the second major moon of Heittrisa, It was also the former 4th planet of the system. It is a hot D-Class world. Blekiur wasn't always the hot desert moon we see today. Originally, it was a volcanic hell world before be captured by Heittrisa's gravity. Once it settle into orbit, icy asteroids from the Hope Asteroid Belt crashed into the new moon, cooling it down and forming a thick oxygen rich atmosphere along with oceans. Unicellular organisms would arise within its oceans as well. The moon has been "destroyed" twice in its history. Once by the C.Y.R.E.X in 604,000,000 BCE. And once by the True Alliance of Man in 10,509 CE, the latter of which lead to Blekiur's appearance today.

Blekiur began to form around 4,795,800,000 Standard years ago, originally it was the 4th planet of the Hope System, however on 4,200,340,120 BCE it was captured by the gas giant Heittrisa. After this its gravity began to attract icy asteroids within the Hope Asteroid Belt and throughout the remainder of the 4,000,000,000 BCEs these asteroids would crash on the surface on the moon, the ice on these asteroids would melt upon reaching their target, cooling the surface and creating vast oceans, and with the release of these chemicals a thick oxygen atmosphere formed. Around 3,899,000,000 BCE life began to form within these oceans, eventually single cell organisms populated all bodies of water on the moon, from oceans, to lakes and ponds. It was very similar to early life on Haven and Douma, unlike them however, this life was unable to progress to the multi cellular stage. Around 2,489,380,142 BCE the Havenites began to fully colonize the moon, constructing towering cites across the moon's surface. It was third most populace world within their home system, after Haven and Douma. After the Havenites joined the Etymology, the moon became an ecumenopolis like many worlds under their domain, with a population of around four hundred billion. This world spanning city was destroyed completely by the C.Y.R.E.X on 604,000,000 BCE and barley any of it remains today. They destroyed the Ecumenpolis by using satellites in orbit, artificially heating the atmosphere to around 60000°C like they did to countless other worlds, killing all of its inhabitants.

After the C.Y.R.E.X's attack, the moon remained extremely hot for thousands of years, but gradually overtime it began to cool down, eventually becoming a warm desert world with a thin atmosphere. It would remain as such for millions of years, until humans arrived in the Hope System. Though Haven was focused on when humans first arrived due to it being able to support human habitability naturally, Blekiur had a small resource colony built on 10,272 CE. This colony, grew larger throughout the rest of the 10200s until it became a functional city named Solitudinem. Other colonies would form across the moon in the decades that followed. In 10,450, the Ambrosia Alliance would attempt to terraform the moon by safely directing ice asteroids and melting them in the moon's upper atmosphere. They would pump oxygen into the atmosphere as well. Using this method, they were able to create oceans and make the ground's soil suitable for planting flora. However, due to this taking place during the Second Alliance War, the True Alliance of Man opted to sabotage the terraforming in 10,509 CE. They placed electromagnetic pulse-drivers within the cloud layer of Bleikur's parent planet. Once these were operational they were activated and over loaded the atmospheric temperature regulators, increasing the temperature of the moon by 90°C, evaporating the oceans and causing a run-away greenhouse effect. Giving the moon's atmosphere a distinct pink hue. The populace of Blekiur were able to safely evacuate however and sought refuge on the moon Cevla. After this, the population of Blekiur used robotic instruments to elevate Solitudinem into the moon's upper atmosphere where its relatively temperate. The population returned to the moon and reattempts to terraform the moon is underway.

Blekiur is a hot desert world with a dynamic landscape of large jagged mountain ranges, small canyon systems, and large expanses of volcanoes. The moon has plate tectonics, meaning the moon has continents. They are Blekiur Maximus East, West, North, and South respectively. Blekiur's climate has changed many times throughout its life time. From a volcanic hell world, to a temperate Terra, and finally a hot desert. It gets very little radiation from its parent planet, unlike its sister moon Cevla, however it gets massive tidal forces inflicted upon it by the gas giant. Leaving the moon very volcanically active.

Blekiur during the Etymology Era had a massive population of around fifteen billion people, with the vast majority being Havenites. This population lived mostly on the beaches of the various islands that once dotted the moon. Afterwards, the Human Alliance of Ambrosia would construct a massive city know as Solitudinem on the surface due to the moon being relatively hospitable at the time. Even after Blekiur's failed terraforming, the inhabitants of Solitudinem would use robotic instruments to lift the city into the moon's atmosphere where it remained habitable.

Like most worlds under the control of the Havenites, Blekiur didn't have a unique culture during this period of its history, operating identically to most worlds their people lived on. However now, Blekiur has a very unique culture while its operated as a world under its respective alliances. Its culture was based on a form of light isolationism, with its people very rarely leaving the moon. Hence the name of its only major colony. This also makes the moon experience very little trade due to the odd hostility its people, with them relying on goods they create themselves.

Hope - 4.1: Hearth

Hearth from space.

Brief Description

Hearth is the first major moon of planet Haven. It is a temperate S-Class world. Hearth is considered an average, small Selena world. It has a bumpy surface of small hills, mountains, craters, and canyons. The moon is almost made entirely of rock and dirt. As such, very few precious metals are located within it. Small pockets of iron are sparsely placed across it. Very tiny pockets of cadmium are located there as well. Originally, Hearth was the second major moon of Haven, second to the moon "Harmony". However after the aforementioned moon entered within the planet's roche limit, it was torn apart and became the vast "Rings of Harmony" ring system around planet Haven. Now the moon exists as an Ecumenopolis, meaning the entire surface is covered within one large city. It has a very large population for an Ecumenopolis. In fact, it has the largest human populace of any Ecumenopolis in the Ambrosia Galaxy.

Hearth formed alongside its parent planet Haven, and its sister moon Harmony, in 4,500,000,000 BCE. When it fist formed it had a wild retrograde orbit, opposite of its sister moon's standard prograde orbit. This lead to it to interacting with Harmony in a sort of gravitational tug of war as their opposite orbits would pull them closer to each other. This would result in Hearth's favor as during the aforementioned gravitational tug of war, Harmony was gradually drifting closer to the planet Haven. This ultimately culminated with its entrance into the planet's roche limit in 3,777,020,105 BCE. The first Ambrosian civilization to ever reach the moon was the Havenites when they launched a manned mission to the moon in the year 2,489,466,168 BCE. And with repeated trips to the moon throughout the 2,489,466,000 BCEs they would have a permanent, self-reliant colony established on the moon by the year of 2,489,466,150 BCE. More Havenite colonies would be established on the moon throughout four millennias until the moon would become a Ecumenopolis in 1,640,024,000 BCE.

Hope - 5.1: Aiene

Aiene from space.

Brief Description

Aiene is the only major moon of Douma. Aiene is a "medium" sized, tidally locked Selena world of flat landscapes, craters, small dust mounds and cooled lava flows. It also holds vast underground tunnels of silver which are constantly mined by the moon's inhabitants. Its formation is quite unique compared to moons of a similar ilk as it is unknown if it was from a natural happenstance, or if it was due to artificial machinations. This is because the planet Acconda entered within Douma's orbit, resulting in large pieces of the planet to be gravitationally torn off, forming the moon we see today. The moon has housed three separate intragalactic civilizations in its lifetime. First, there was the Etymology, then the Human Alliance of Ambrosia, and finally the Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems which still controls the moon to this day. Aiene now exists within a ecumenopolis, meaning that one large city encompasses the entire moon's surface. However, this Ecumenpolis is unique as it is made entirely out of silver mined from its many vast silver caves. It also reflects a lot of light towards Douma, so much so that nighttime on the planet is only slightly dimmer then its daytime.

Aiene's history begins when planet Acconda entered within Douma's orbit in 1,600,215,000 BCE. And with it being dangerously close to the aforementioned planet, the former Terra world would heat up dramatically and cause all oceans on the surface to evaporate, killing all life and turning it into a cold desert world. This event would also cause large pieces of Douma to be torn off of the main planet and put into orbit, which in turn gradually collided with each other and became the spherical moon Aiene. This event was viewed by the Havenites, as well as the larger Etymology, as an act of unprecedented violence by "the Libertas." a once large and prominent rebel group native to the Mid Arm. Whether or not this was true, or if it was a natural event, or even caused by the Etymology themselves is unknown. Despite the fault of the moon's creation being questionable, this event would make the Etymology increase hostilities towards the Libertas and continue the costly conflict. And as an act of "defiance" against the Libertas, the native Havenites would establish the colony of: "Tempestatibus" on Aiene. This colony was constructed with large climate arrays to be able to artificially influence Douma's climate for future terraforming. However the Etymology would outlaw the use of these to continue using Douma as a martyr against the Libertas.

After the destruction of the Etymology by the C.Y.R.E.X, Tempestatibus would be left relativity untouched, other then its inhabitants being exterminated. However it would receive new tenants, the Human Alliance of Ambrosia, when they entered within the Hope System in 10265 CE. As they scanned the star system, they learned that Aiene's temperature is quite habitable to humans and thus' they sent a small group of colonists to settle it. Once arriving in orbit around the moon they discovered the, at this time long abandoned ruins of Tempestatibus as well as the vast silver caves, and decided to explore, study, and setup their colony within them. After years of studying the vast ruins they discovered that the array system around the city would have been used to artificially control Douma's climate, and while they didn't understand exactly why these were used as such, the fact still remained that these could be used to terraform the planet with relative ease. Thus' in 10,278 CE, plans to terraform Douma were set into motion. During the First Alliance War, the True Alliance of Man was gaining incredible ground, and with the impressive feat of turning the moon Yckar into a sprawling Ecumenpolis, the Human Alliance was feeling over shadowed by this new rebel movement. To show that the Human Alliance still held the power within the Ambrosia Galaxy, a group of delicates proposed the "Silver City" plan. This proposition was to turn Aiene into a large Ecumenpolis made entirely out of the moon's natural silver supply. Though these plans were cautioned against by then leader of the Human Alliance of Ambrosia, Lakarda Lakvan, due to its hefty price tag of 15,000,000,000 ACU Units, it would still be approved by mass voting. Construction of Silver City began in 10,278 CE and was concluded in 10,340 CE. Once completed, Silver City became a symbol of the Human Alliance's power and a very popular tourist destination.

Hope - 4.4: Viridi Greater

Viridi Greater from space.

Brief Description

Viridi Greater is the fourth major moon of Haven and was originally the sixth planetary body of the Hope System. It was a frozen ice world before being aquaformed the Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems that forms a dual-planet system with its sister world Viridi Lesser. Viridi Greater was a frozen dwarf planet located within the outskirts of Hope's inner planetary system. Originally, Viridi Greater existed as a moon of Acconda. During this period in its history, the world was a temperate oceanic moon with a vast emerald green ocean covering its entire surface, though no known life is thought to have lived there. It would be aquaformed by the Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems in 10,650 CE, becoming the temperate O-Class world it once was again. and was then placed into the orbit around planet Haven.

Its surface was originally covered in raised ice ridges, small ice dunes, and bumps. As well, massive areas of harden snow created from the freezing of the dwarf planet's ancient atmosphere. Unlike most oceanaic worlds that have frozen over, Viridi Greater is not an ice shell world. Instead, this layer of ice spreads all the way down to its core. Viridi Greater forms a dual-planet system with its sister moon, Viridi Lesser. However unlike most dual-planet systems, the two ice worlds are so close in size that they both orbit each other almost perfectly in a wildly chaotic orbit that will eventually make the two crash into each other. Now, like all ocean worlds, its surface is covered in an endless ocean.

Viridi exists within the outskirts of Hope's inner planetary system, meaning that it is quite cold. With a frigid temperature of -153 Celsius there was little hopes of being able to be terraformed, Viridi seems to be not worth the effort to colonize as there are better bodies near by, such as Haven and Douma. However, though terraforming seemed to be off the table, the Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems would make the world at least semi-habitable to humans through the use of "Aquaforming". They would heat the dwarf planet's icy surface, melting the water-ice while the dwarf planet's gravity would hold onto the water, forming a thick atmosphere. Through the runaway greenhouse effect of this event, the atmosphere would become thick and trap the heat. However originally, Viridi had a quite hospitable temperature of around three degrees Celsius. Allowing for its native Havenites to live quite comfortably.

Viridi Greater formed from the debris of Acconda's planetary formation disk alongside its sister moons in 4,795,900,000 BCE. As it cooled from its formation, the moon would have its surface covered in a large fresh water ocean encircling the entire moon. And with its newly formed thick ethane atmosphere, it gave the moon a distinctive emerald green coloring. Viridi Greater would receive its first tenants in the form of the Havenites in 2,489,466,000 BCE, as they would establish massive floating cities across its lunar ocean. However in 1,600,215,000 BCE, its parent planet would cross into the orbit of Douma, sending it and its sister moon hurtling out of their orbits. Afterwards, the now dwarf planet would begin to have its surface ocean freeze, forming one large ice structure tunneling all the way down to its core, destroying the Havenite colonies that were housed there. The two former moons would remain in gravitational resonance with each other, forming a dual-planet system. Much later in its history, it would be discovered by the Human Alliance of Ambrosia in 10,265 CE as they entered within its home star system. However due to it being very inhospitable, no colonies would be established there. Until' it was aquaformed in 10,680 CE by the Human Alliance of Ambrosia's successors, the Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems, then many human cities would be spread across the newly created planetary ocean.

Hope - 6.1: Luxpetram

Luxpetram from space.

Brief Description

Luxpetram is the first major moon of the ice giant planet Acconda. It is a hot S-Class world with an unusually thick atmosphere. Luxpetram is by far the most famous Salena world in the Hope System due to its beautiful glowing atmosphere. This world is considered so beautiful that only rich entrepreneurs inhabit it/ It got its famous atmosphere due to a failed attempt to terraform the moon by the Havenites during the Etymology era. This attempt failed due to the Cyrex destroying them before they could progress beyond the atmospheric stage. However this artificial atmosphere would remain on the moon for millions of years. Ancient Havenite ruins are also located on its surface, as well as satellites in orbit however none remain functional. Luxaria, the capital of Luxpetram, was built around an ancient Havenite city. The moon holds an abundance of precious metals such as iron and silver. Other precious resources include oil and diamonds, leading to the moon becoming a rather large mining colony.

Luxpetram formed alongside its parent planet Acconda, and its sister moon Coilsa around 4,795,900,000 standard years ago. It once held micro organisms in its early life however this life would go extinct due to an asteroid collision in 4,199,000,000 BCE. Around 2,489,466,010 BCE the Havenites would begin to colonize Luxpetram, building small cites across the moon's surface. After the Etymology was formed the moon's population would grow exceptionally, as would the cites they occupied. With the ever mounting pressure of Luxpetram's populace, the Etymology was urged to terraform the moon into that of ancient Haven. Thus, around 604,000,100 BCE terraforming began. They created Luxpetram's now famous atmosphere however that was the only thing they managed to do. On 604,000,000 BCEthe C.Y.R.E.X rebelled against the Etymology and completely destroyed all of its settlements. After this event, the artificial atmosphere would remain encircled around the moon for millions of years. When human colonists arrived within the Hope System they would begin to radar map the system's many worlds. Once it was discovered that Luxpetram had an usually large atmosphere they sent robotic probes to map out the surface and measure its composition. After images of the moon were released to the public, many rich business owners took a liking to the moon's appearance. Because of this, the moon would eventually have a colony of the rich elite formed on it. Luxaria, in 10,284 CE.

Hope - 9.1: Orbis

Orbis from space.

Brief Description

Orbis is the first major moon of Spatium, It is a hot D-Class world. Orbis is a hot hell world located in orbit around Spatium, the last planet of the Hope System. Before it became this lifeless desert, it would be a cold ice world, and later a temperate Titan world terraformed by the Nagala, also making it home to the Nagala Embassy for the Hope System. It is the largest moon in the Hope System, with it even being larger then the planet of Valles. It is so large, it has its own independent magnetic field, stretching million of kilometers into space.

Orbis would form from the majority of the icy debris leftover during the formation of its parent planet, Spatium in 4,495,109,000 BCE. During its early history, the moon was a large world made up of frozen nitrogen. This surface would be constantly tugged by massive amounts of tidal forces from Spatium, leaving it scarred and rigid. Much later, the moon would be colonized by the Havenites in 2,489,300,000 BCE, as they would establish large elaborate cities across its frozen cracks and scars. The moon would eventually be terraformed by the Nagala in 2,488,109,000 BCE. This was because they and the Havenites would continue to be at each others throats, even after their induction in the Etymology, this caused the larger Etymology to force the two to make peace with each other in some way. As such, the Havenites relinquished the moon as an area where the Nagala could colonize themselves within. Which they did in the form of melting the moon's icy nitrogen surface, forming large liquid nitrogen oceans not unlike those of their home world. Causing the native Havenites to construct large buoyancy platforms underneath their cities so that they would float. Afterwards the C.Y.R.E.X would destroy all settlements across the moon by heating the moon's atmosphere, causing the nitrogen oceans to evaporate, leading to a runaway greenhouse effect that would cause the atmosphere to thicken and trap massive amounts of heat within itself. Later still, the Human Alliance of Ambrosia would discover the moon in 10,265 CE, and once it was determined that the moon's upper atmosphere was fairly hospitable, large floating colonies would be constructed all across it

The Moon's geography is fairly flat, with few mountains or hills. As well, very few impact craters are on the surface as asteroids usually disintegrate before reaching the ground. Originally, the surface of the moon was a vast landscape of frozen nitrogen, broken up by large cracks and bumps across it. Then, it would be terraformed by the Nagala, melting the frozen nitrogen and forming large nitrogen oceans and artificial continents, as well as many islands.

Much alike its similar sister world, Blekiur, Orbis' climate has changed several times throughout its lifetime. From a cold ice world, to a temperate titan, then finally a hot desert with large hurricanes constantly raging across its surface. It also experiences large amounts of tidal forces and radiation from its parent gas giant.

During the Etymology Era, Orbis would have an absolutely massive population of around eighteen trillion people. This was due to the Nagala's terraforming of the moon, causing several trillion Nagala to move to the moon, as well as the large Havenite population already living there. After their destruction, the Human Alliance of Ambrosia would construct large floating colonies in the upper atmosphere where it is relatively hospitable. The Ambrosia Alliance of United Systems also look to terraform the moon for themselves at some point in the future.

As it was home to the Nagala Embassy, the moon's culture operated very similar to various other worlds under the Nagala's control. Most notably, its culture was alike to their home and capital planet. Afterwards, the native humans and the various other Ambrosian Races' culture would operate as a sort of checkpoint area, as any ship entering within the Hope System would have to be vetted by the inhabitants of the moon before entering planet Haven.
