System: Zyan

Name: Zyan [ZY-ahn]
Galactic Location: Near the bottom edge of the first half of the universe.
Neighboring Systems: 1.75 months from Hiith to the north; 1.25 months from Kaul to the north-east; 3.25 months from Sirfsa to the east; 2.75 months from Nesaule to the north-west.
Worlds In System: Ztar, Lorrex, Pendauri
Natives: Ztar'ai, vanalaran
Colonists: rarra

System Formation: Second Category. The three worlds face away from each other so that the non-polar sides of their gravitic ore point inwards, and the sun swings an ellipse around them. The worlds spin like frisbees, creating seasonal change, and the sun's orbit creates a day-night cycle; the night is roughly twice as long as the day and can get considerably colder. With these types of sun systems, the seasons are most extreme near the edges of the worlds, becoming more uniform and changeless towards the center of the planet. All second-category systems are horizontally aligned, so that the planets face outwards towards other systems and the sun's ellipse is horizontal.
About the System: Zyan is well-known but little-visited, on the edges of the universe. Its traffic and trade are controlled by rarra, who were rebuffed from Ztar - one of the most magic-rich worlds in the universe - by its natives, the Ztar'ai. Rarra colonized the other two worlds, helping the vanalarani into the void in the process. Few visit Zyan that are not sponsored by rarra or working for vanalarani.
