• Syraath – The Arduin sun.
  • Khaas – The Arduin home world is the only known planet in the system.  It is a class M planet very similar to Earth.  Khaas is approximately 8,900 miles in diameter with a circumference of roughly 28,000 miles.  It follows a 453 day elliptical orbit around Syraath, and rotates counter-clockwise (thus the sun rises in the west and sets in the east).  Because the planet has no axial tilt, it has a constant rotational cycle of exactly 25 hours.  Khaas has four natural satellites described below.
  • Argentum – The silver moon is the brightest and most prominent of Arduin’s moons due to its close proximity.
  • Caeruleus – The blue moon is physically the largest of the three moons.
  • Sanguineus – The red moon is the most distant and physically the smallest of Khaas’ satellites.
  • Atratus – The black moon is in fact an asteroid that appears once every 1,000 years.  It is only visible during the daylight hours, appearing as nothing more than a small spec against the backdrop of the sun as it passes between Syraath and Khaas.  Because of its relatively diminutive size, the asteroid usually goes unnoticed, and has, for the most part, been completely forgotten by the planet’s inhabitants.
  • The Nebulae – Dominating a tenth of the southwestern sky is a bright, violet-blue gas cloud with a somber red core.  It is the result of a supernova that occurred 135 years ago just a few parsecs away in the Terullian system.
  • The Constellations – Among the nearly 4,000 catalogued stars appearing in the night sky are 66 prominent constellations.  Detailed descriptions can be found in “The World Book of Khaas – Legendary Lands of Arduin” available from Emperors Choice Games & Miniatures Corp.
