Westphalia is a planetary system orbiting a orange K-class star.  The system lies in the Cetus Constellation of the Cetus Region.

Westphalia’s primary planet is a relatively high volcanically active world. Sprawling volcanic mountain ranges, exaggerated by the planet’s lower gravity, spread across the land.  The planet is rich in minerals, deposited from the numerous volcanoes, though dust in sulfur in the atmosphere is a common occurrence.


Originally settled by colonists from throughout the Cetus Region, a mix of cultures from the various worlds developed on Westphalia. The colonists adapted to the volcanic conditions, as the population grew and thrived in the less volcanically active regions of the planet.

Westphalia Planets

Westphalia B
Westphalia B is a habitable, terrestrial world covered in 60% water.  The planet's land areas are separated into three major continents.  The most striking feature is the Samarkand Mountains, a volcanic mountain range that runs along the northern continent all the way from the north pole to the equator.

Distance: 0.70 AU

Orbit: 238 days

Temp: 275 K

Mass: 0.49 Earth

Radius: 5062 km

Gravity: 0.78 g

Rotation: 33 hours

Moon(s): 1


Westphalia C
Westphalia C is a terrestrial world that's a bit too cold for liquid water to form on the surface.  The planet has a nitrogen atmosphere.  It's been sometimes viewed as a terraforming candidate, though the planet's high gravity has discouraged any serious attempts.

Distance: 1.76 AU

Orbit: 944 days

Temp: 199 K

Mass: 1.97 Earth

Radius: 7935 km

Gravity: 1.27 g

Rotation: 29 hours

Moon(s): 1


Westphalia D
Westphalia D is an ice giant composed of hydrogen and helium.  The planet contains trace amounts of methane and carbon monoxide throughout the cloud layers.

Distance: 18.43 AU

Orbit: 87.4 years

Temp: 47 K

Mass: 35.39 Earth

Radius: 34584 km

Gravity: 1.2 g

Rotation: 20 hours

Moon(s): 8
