Krie

By:

Krie is a sort of Oceanic world that might be what you would like to see in a fantasy role play.

Krie is set on a course in a solar system of two yellow stars of unknown age. It’s upper atmosphere is composed mostly of water, seeing as the lower atmosphere is made up of oxygen and a number of other gases that bind with oxygen to make the compounds weigh more than water. The creatures there have not yet evolved into any intelligent species, but are in the organic growth stages. Due to the high potency of the intermittant atmospheres and the raw energy of the young planet, any thoughts by intelligent beings on this planet would result in reflections through environmental changes. The plants growing on the surface of the planet must pull water to themselves through long roots, which extend upwards, and somehow mysteriously draw the water of the atmosphere to them. With a high potency and a raw planet that could easily support life, you could easily add things to make it a much more interesting place to role play in.

Scientifically impossible, but I can deal with that.

What do you mean by:
"Due to the high potency of the intermittant atmospheres and the raw energy of the young planet, any thoughts by intelligent beings on this planet would result in reflections through environmental changes."
Are you saying that intelligent beings could think something into being on this planet, or change the terrain with their thoughts? Explanation please.

Also, clarify this:
"he plants growing on the surface of the planet must pull water to themselves through long roots, which extend upwards, and somehow mysteriously draw the water of the atmosphere to them."
By "surface", do you mean the inner "roof" of the air shell below the water, or what?

You're saying that the atmosphere is water and below it is air? What? Explanations?

3/5.

This is actually a prime candidate for the Flesh It Out forum...

So we have an actual ocean composed of water, and then a second, thicker ocean, called atmosphere, because it is composed of what we usually percieve as gases. Their thicknesses should differ a lot, so they simply don't mix.

(But this looks like a mere scientifical distinction, there likely are many layers in-between.)

Is there any "real" atmosphere above it all? Probably it is only a thin layer of hydrogen, helium and other light gases, not very suited to life as we know it.


How about life?

- the planet's body itself, also not suited to life as we know it (bacterial life possible though).
- the "atmosphere", the thick ocean with oxygen. Plants live here mostly, but other life forms can be imagined. Only slow movement is possible however. The area may be shielded from dangerous radiation thanks to the sea above it; but much of the usable light is also lost.
- the ocean, the top layer shields the radiation, it may contain life similar to the marine life of Earth. However, the light comes from above, and oxygen from below. Thus the animals would sink upwards for food (where the sea-grasses grow), and stay mostly down to breathe.
- the thin pitiful thing resembling an atmosphere, noted before.

The plants on the surface would be gigantic trees, possibly ranging up to the very surface of the second ocean. Mighty plants indeed!

This whole strange setup might be caused by Life itself, by the way.

Ringworld-based game , anyone

       By: Kawaresksenjajok

hey im new to this site but was here years ago w/ another name. anyways dont remember so im newbie by default.
Firstly, I am a sci-fi reader and I hope to meet success with my writing.
My favorite series of books are Larry Nivens RINGWORLD tetralogy (Ringworld, RingWorld Engineers, The RingWorld Throne, and RingWorlds Children)
For those that havnt read the ring world is the greatest artificial structere ever discovered.
A ring, its circumference equal to earths orbit, it is built around a sol-like star. Shadow squares halfway betwwn the ring and the sun provide 15 hours of night in a thirty hour day. 70 days equals one falan (one full rotation of ring world. The inner surface-the one exposed to the sun, is terraformed and is one millionkmwide cntrifugal force provides gravity, and rim walls 1000km high keep the atmosphere in. Population of RNH(ringworld native hominids)
estimated in the trillions.
The origins of who built it and why are too sticky to get into. But the ringworld , millions of years ago, was populated bt A race called Pak Protectors. Protectors are ancestors of all homo sapiens. they populated ringworld with homo erectus, but left no predators in the ecology. hence, hominids evolved into every ecological niche. (Vampires, Carrion Eaters, Giant Herbivores, Small Carnivores, some built great technologies and went interstellar. Oh, and ringworld is 300 million times the surface area of earth. post if youre interested, Ill elabortae on native species and alien vistors
