Whiterain from space

Strong sun

Shining stone

Strange strings

Squish squish

White Rain

Written by the world's discoverer, these five lines from the poem describe Whiterain’s most notable aspects. Despite the punishing white light from its F-class star, the world is full of life. Frequent tectonic activity brings all kinds of strange minerals to the surface, theorized to be the reason for her strange colors. Although the origins of life on this world are as of yet unknown, scientists are optimistic we will soon find an answer, as the ecosystem is still very young. 

It's strange mineral composition has baffled scientists. The larger moon, Barmay, is a barren desert world. Aside from a few rich metal deposits, the world has gone largely unnoticed. The smaller moon, Deterrence, however, is a bizarre world unlike any other discovered so far. The atmosphere is mostly comprised of phosphorous trioxide, phosphoric acid vapor and phosphine. On top of that, due to a greenhouse effect, it’s searingly hot at roughly 160 degrees Celsius. So far, no-one has yet attempted to land on the ultra-hostile moon.

Whiterain gets its name from the last line of the poem written by the famous explorer who discovered the world. It's a primitive world with rich concentrations of calcium and phosphorous, shallow oceans, strange fleshy forests and bizarre sprawls of tangling worms. Planetside access is currently restricted, but rumors are that the ASC is planning to drop citydomes on it in the near future.

Very little rainfall makes it to the center of the planet's supercontinent, so the rare sources of water usually cause an explosion in biodiversity. Life is in its early stages here, but many primitive mollusk-like creatures have already taken to the land. The lower gravity on Whiterain possibly helped them in that regard, but it also means that the world has difficulty holding on to its air. To make the most of the thin atmosphere, land-dwelling organisms can absorb oxygen through the skin.

I like making alien worlds.

I guess I'm a bit of an alien myself. I'm mostly human but a bit of my brain must have gotten scrambled during transit. Don't worry, I'm here to observe. That said, I am a bit of a rebel, so I have broken my prime directive. I have taken it upon myself to share my wisdom with humanity. All of it will make sense in a thousand years from now. (I hope)

As I'm also a bit of an artist, not to brag, I will prove my alien-ness by sharing with you stories of the many different worlds I have visited in my home galaxy, in hopes I may one day find another being from there might recognize them and find me.

In any case, I have revealed enough. Now go forth and prosper.
