Fireton is a system with multiple planets that orbits an orange, K-class giant star located over 400 light years from Earth.  The system lies in the Ursa Minor Constellation of the Polaris Region.

Fireton's primary planet is a terrestrial world with a vast endless desert.  The desert is flat and sandy, it is likely the remains of a once great ocean that covered much of the surface.  As the parent star grew into an orange giant, the ocean disappeared, leaving behind a long river called the Zaza River, the last remains of the ocean.


The Zaza River is easily the planet's most notable feature.  The Zaza river carves a wide valley that stretches north and south across the planet's surface.  When viewed from orbit, the river is a green vein cutting through the brown desert. Industrialized cities and irrigated farmlands stretch along the length of the river.  Nearly the entire population lives inside the river's valley.


The Zaza River and a group of small seas is the planet's last remaining bodies of water.  As the orange giant sun continues to grow, the water will continue evaporate.  It's estimated in less than a million years, all liquid water will be gone from the planet's surface.

Fireton Planets

Fireton B
Fireton B is a terrestrial world whose surface is covered in a vast sandy desert scorched by the giant sun. Small seas scattered across the surface make up the majority of the planet's water. The most notable location is the Zaza River, a wide river stretching thousands of KM across the surface, a green vein cutting through the brown desert.
