Baan-The ChThonian Planet

Our Space Odyssey continues with Baan the 2nd closest planet to the SoVran Star


Discovery Overview

Baan is known as the Chthonian Planet because of its large radius and very low density. At one point Baan was a gas giant like MeGron.

As the eons passed, the gravitational pull of SoVran brought it ever so close to the parent star, and the result roasted the atmosphere away, leaving only a rocky, metallic core.
Molten lava rivers now traverse the surface.

A view from orbit presents quite an uncommon planet, for Baan, the Chthonian Planet has a multitude of jets rings that are created from within the surface. These narrow multi-colored bands extend horizontally from the equator reaching far north and south to the magnetic poles, thus, spanning the entire planet.  A view from orbit offers a fascinating view of exploding colors that offer danger as well. These hot gaseous rings have been known to reach outer space on occasion.

Exploration Tales

Baan is a terrifying planet to visit indeed.

A jet ring can vaporize anything in its path. Many a probe has ended its existence at the hands of Baan’s overpowering tentacles that launch from the surface.

Yet, Homo Heidelbergensis is a creative species that loves challenges. Our “Cosmic Cousin’s in The Sky” play Interstellar games on the planet Baan, where highly advanced elusive drones are manually operated from orbit and watched on theatre size screens.

The objective of the game is simple…Kill or be killed, either by the JetRings(which can attack with the speed of a lightning bolt), or your opponent who is bent on destroying your droid. A live-action interactive game with an exoplanet.

To the death… pitting individual skill against individual skill.
