The World of Targus

The​ ​last​ ​of​ ​the​ ​gods​ ​came​ ​together,​ ​and​ ​named​ ​the​ ​planet​ ​Targus,​ ​the​ ​god’s​ ​went​ ​into​ ​their machines​ ​to​ ​great​ ​birthing​ ​tanks​ ​and​ ​started​ ​to​ ​make​ ​creatures​ ​and​ ​animals​ ​of​ ​all​ ​sorts.​ ​Some could​ ​fly​ ​some​ ​could​ ​swim,​ ​and​ ​others​ ​would​ ​roam​ ​the​ ​lands.​ ​Years​ ​later​ ​after​ ​discovering​ ​the mysterious​ ​island​ ​where​ ​the​ ​meteorite​ ​had​ ​landed​ ​years​ ​ago,​ ​a​ ​large​ ​island​ ​was​ ​its​ ​place.

Targus a world of diversity and a myriads of cultures. Reborn from the hands of the Gods, it now plays hosts to the beginnings of a new War of the Gods, with the hands of man utilizing the long lost technologies of the God, the Sky Relics. Most of Targus is now laid to waste, some crawling with crawling creatures, of an unknown origin, other lands are considered the home lands to the Outcasts

​The Deadlands, these , these cursed lands are now festering wound at the heart of Targus. There is life in this place, or at least a mockery of it, the sad effects of Malack’s Biomancy and corruption.

The floating Islands are often seen as havens and home to many of the peoples of Targus. These islands and rocks that circulate slowly in the planets magnetic currents like occupied icebergs afloat at sea. Large and ponderous they float and clash, join and sometimes break apart, scraping against each other and the towering mountains of the more mountainous regions. These floating islands are believed to be partly held up by the forces of the Gods, yet the symbiotic relationship between the Blood Eye Moon, The Mal Storms and the Planet, creating magnetic vortices due to the Meissner Effect.

 


Blood Eye

Radius  2,622 Km             Population ***

Mass    1.35 x 22²² Kg     Temp 227K

Blood Moon

Gravity 1.6 m/s²

The Blood Eye, or The Eye of Mal, this malevolent looking moon is one often seen as a portent of strife and misery.

Possessing a metallic core, it has the oddest moment of inertia factor of any of the solid bodies in the Targus Solar System and is the only moon known to have its own magnetic field. Blood Eye’s magnetic field is probably created by convection within its liquid iron core and suspected as being part of a symbiotic relationship with the Planet Targus and the Mal Storms.

 


Scar

Radius 1473.4 Km             Population ***

Mass    2.24×10²² Kg         Temp 210K

Gravity 1.779 m/s²

 

Scar MoonThe higher density of Scar indicates that it consists of roughly equal proportions of water ice and a dense non-ice component. The latter made up of  silicate, rock and carbonaceous material including heavy organic compounds. The presence of water ice is supported by God Tech scans, which have revealed crystalline water ice on the surface of the moon. Water ice absorption bands are stronger on Scars leading hemisphere, where the leading hemisphere exhibits stronger water ice signatures.

The cause of this asymmetry is not fully understood yet current theory suggests that it is related to impact gardening of the trailing surface. Meteorite impacts have knocked out ice from the trailing surface adding to the already damaged moons look and feel. And in doing so such impact have left dark non-ice material behind.

The dark material itself has formed as a result of radiation radiation darkening of other organic compounds.

 


Child

Radius  0,788.4 Km            Population Unknown

Mass    3.417×10²² Kg       Temp 220K

Gravity .339 m/s²

 

It is appears to be saturated with impact craters and has evolved largely through impact events with numerous impact craters reaching hundreds of kilometres in scale.  appears to have been shaped by both impacts (current belief on dispersion pattern is a non terrestrial, non natural impacts) and endogenic processes. The numerous impact craters can be seen as reaching up to 300+ kilometres. The brighter, grooved terrain contains many fewer impact features, which could be of significant importance to its tectonic evolution, its trailing hemisphere, however, contains an unusual and distinctive surface feature: network of bright ice cliffs.

Over a third of Child’s mass is water ice, and the remaining is a dense core, probably silicate rock with a possible artificial metallic core.

 

Data gathered by some of the factions scientists indicates that Child has an internal liquid water ocean. The Child’s ice shell is thought to vary in thickness by less than 9%, with the thinnest areas at the poles, where tidal heating of the crust is greatest. The tidal flexing of the ice may have heated the interior and strained the lithosphere, leading to the development of cracks, horst and graben faulting. The formation of the grooved terrain may also be connected with the early core formation and subsequent tidal heating of Child’s interior, which may have caused a slight expansion due to phase transitions in ice and thermal expansion. During subsequent evolution deep, hot water plumes may have risen from the core to the surface, leading to the tectonic deformation of the lithosphere. Radiogenic heating within the satellite is the most relevant current heat source, contributing, for instance, to ocean depth.

What is known is that Child hold many secrets far more than its small size would suggest.​

 


Pryre

Radius 1560.8 Km             Population ***

Mass    4.91394×10²²Kg    Temp 220-260K

Gravity 1.674 m/s²

The heating mechanism required for the formation of the grooved terrain on Pryre is an unsolved scientific matter in the current Targus Factions planetary sciences. The modern view is that the grooved terrain is mainly tectonic in nature. However  Cryovolcanism is thought to be playing a small but significant role . The forces that caused the strong stresses in Pryre’s southern polar ice lithosphere necessary to initiate the tectonic activity and are believed to be connected to the tidal heating and tectonic events in the relationship between Blood Eye and the planet Targus, possibly due to the magnetic resonances of such a relationship. due to phase transitions in ice and thermal expansion.

 

Cratering is seen on both types of terrain, but is especially extensive on the dark terrain: it appears to be saturated with impact craters and have evolved largely through impact events. The brighter, grooved terrain contains many larger impact features, which have been seen as of importance to its tectonic evolution.
