New Geies

Geies is the inner most planet of the Vonaâsiâi (Twins) system. It was settled during 755 CY (YE 36).

About Geies

Geies is a cool world with very little land. It boasts a diverse aquatic biosphere. Land based biosphere is limited to mainly the tropics. Above that region plant life such as conifers and lichens are the norm in the permafrost. The surface is swept by frequent electromagnetic storms which means any equipment on the surface has to be protected against lightning. The storms are tied directly to the cycle of the system's primary interacting with the secondary. The axial tilt causes the seasons to vary wildly across the surface. As the summer moves across the surface, parts of the oceans melt and algae blooms form.
