The world

Tergia is a G-type star measuring 0.973 solar masses.

Njôro is a habitable planet orbiting Tergia with a semimajor axis of 1.068 AU and an eccentricity of 0.0548. It has a radius of about 6415 km, a mass of 1.01 earth masses, and an axial tilt of 17.8°. The planet has a day length of roughly 24.32 hours, and a year is 403.21 times as long (= 408.61 Earth days). The northward equinox occurs at a mean anomaly of 104.2° relative to the periapsis. Its major satellite has a radius of 1503 km and orbits Njôro 670,200 km away at a period of 62.85 Earth days.

Compared to the Sun and the Earth, Tergia has a lower mass and Njôro orbits farther from it. As a result, Njôro has a lower average temperature than that of Earth, at about 10.1°C. In addition, the eccentricity of Njôro’s orbit significantly contributes to variations in solar insolation; since the perihelion is near the southward solstice, the northern hemisphere experiences less extreme changes in temperature than the southern hemisphere.

The planet has four major continents:

The species

As of (year), Njôro contains about 750 million sapient individuals in total.

The dominant sapient species inhabiting Njôro is the nava. For most purposes, navo can be regarded as humans, but their biology has several differences. Most notably, navo lay eggs instead of giving live birth; in addition, the young are fed by mouth instead of receiving milk. As a result, navo lack any nipples or breasts; additionally, their reproductive organs are different from those of humans. Navo also grow horns during the first six years of life but shed them afterwards until they completely disappear by the age of twelve.

Other species

Navo are not the only sapient species on Njôro.

Vasosôr (singular: vasor) are anthropomorphic reptiles. They are bipedal and about 170–190 cm tall, with tails about 50 cm long. They mainly reside in or around Aširel and Farlarþ. They number about 1.8 million, and most live nomadic lifestyles.
