Wainfont is the second world orbiting Opus in the Vernouli System. Like its sister world Acarpous, it is a tide-locked world, infernally hot on one side, and frozen on the other, a barren world with no native life as we know it. It is, however, significantly bigger, and has remarkably abundant resources, so many corporations have gone to Wainfont to gather them.

1 These sections were filled out using the excellent worldbuilding chapters in GURPS Space (fourth edition). I highly recommend you picking it out.

2 Some values, such as density or mass, are multiples of Earth’s values (so a density of 0.9 means nine tenths of Earth’s Density)
