Valhalla is predominantly Hegemony, Tri-Tachyon, and some Independents. There are two stars: Valhalla, the center of the system, and Ragnar.

Valhalla, Orange Star[edit | edit source]

Valhalla

Slightly cooler and smaller than Old Earth's sun, this class K star most resembles Alpha Centauri B. It is particularly stable, burning on the lower end of the main sequence for tens of billions of years and thus considered a likely host to life-bearing and terraformable planets.

–In-Game Description

  • Center of the Valhalla System

Glasnir (Valhalla I), Barren World[edit | edit source]

Valhalla I: Glasnir

Radiation from the nearby star ravages the surface of this world due to the lack of an atmospheric ozone layer. No significant geological activity. No indigenous life forms.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Valhalla

The Valkyries (Asteroid Belt)[edit | edit source]

  • Orbits Valhalla

Valkyrie Jump-point[edit | edit source]

  • Inner system jump-point
  • Shares its orbit with the Valkyries

Yggdrasil (Valhalla II), Gas Giant[edit | edit source]

Valhalla II: Yggdrasil

Primarily composed of hydrogen and helium gasses. The temperature and pressure at the core are extreme, but not enough to sustain the deuterium fusion that would turn the planet into a brown dwarf star.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Valhalla

Nidhogg (Valhalla II-A), Volcanic World[edit | edit source]

Valhalla II-A: Nidhogg

A geological unstable moon due to proximity to the gas giant Yggdrasil, tidal forces endlessly heat and churn the innards of Nidhogg. Fissures and volcanoes dot the surface and the lava they spew flows for many kilometers across the charred crust.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Yggdrasil

Ratatosk (Valhalla II-B), Barren-Bombarded World[edit | edit source]

Valhalla II-B: Ratatosk

A lifeless and barren moon of rocky-silicates with a wisp of atmosphere that incandesces faintly when struck by Yggdrasil's radiation belts.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Yggdrasil

Raesvelg (Valhalla II-C), Frozen World[edit | edit source]

Valhalla II-C: Raesvelg

Water and ammonia ice form the immense rifts and chaotically furrowed plains of this world. Below the surface, small pockets of lifeless liquid ocean are trapped between the ice and a crust made of rocky silicates. Most of the sprinkling of domed cities remain abandoned since the Collapse, though recent Hegemony strategic policy has encouraged re-industrialization and settlement, especially by numerous Hegemony military veterans. Crew and workers on leave from the nearby Ragnarok Complex and Tri-Tach projects supports a rowdy nightlife and black market. Volatiles mining is encouraged by Hegemony development grants.

–In-Game Description

  • Hegemony Market
    • Autofactory - Heavy Industrial Blueprints
    • Ore Refining Complex
    • Volatiles Mining Complex
    • Vice Demand
    • Frontier
    • Outpost
    • 10^5 Population
  • Orbits Yggdrasil

Niflheim (Valhalla III), Ice Giant[edit | edit source]

Valhalla III: Niflheim

A gas giant composed mostly of water, ammonia and methane. Within the depths, gravity generates enough pressure to form a core of metallic hydrogen.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Valhalla

Skathi, Frozen World[edit | edit source]

Valhalla III-A: Skathi

Drifts of nitrogen and methane ice form most of the crust over a rocky silicate/ice mantle which pierces the cowl of this frozen moon here and there. The Hegemony has granted Tri-Tachyon a license for exclusive development, consisting primarily of a sprawling processing plant for volatiles siphoned from Niflheim and the requisite support infrastructure. Rumors abound that it's all the cover story for a secret research facility performing science deemed illegal under Domain law precedence, but inspectors have never reported anything untoward.

–In-Game Description

  • Tri-Tachyon Market
    • Volatiles Depot
    • Volatiles Mining Complex
    • Free Port
    • Orbital Station
    • Outpost
    • 10^4 Population
  • Orbits Niflheim

Mimir Siphon Platform[edit | edit source]

Mimir Siphon Platform

The product of a Tri-Tachyon initiative to modify the common gas-giant "mine" which siphons gases using the Ouyang Process which, although energy-hungry, becomes self-sustaining once a steady pull of heavy isotopes is attained. From Niflheim a particularly heavy mix of isotopes can be drawn, and these are processed on the moon of Skathi into countless useful forms.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Skathi
  • Extension of the Skathi colony

Makeshift Nav Buoy[edit | edit source]

Makeshift Nav Buoy

Built using the best technology available in the Sector, a nav buoy monitors the in-system hyperfield and is capable of transmitting its findings to friendly fleets in-system. The data is often somewhat unreliable but still useful in making on-the-fly drive field adjustments.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Niflheim as Skathi's L3 trojan

Ragnar (Valhalla B), Red Dwarf[edit | edit source]

Valhalla B: Ragnar

A class M main sequence star, small and exceedingly common. These relatively cool stars often mass only a fraction of Old Earth's sun.

–In-Game Description

  • Orbits Valhalla

Ragnar Complex[edit | edit source]

Ragnar Complex

The boneyard of the Hegemony; in addition to the garrison stationed here to support system patrols and a fleet-in-being to discourage League incursions, the Ragnar Complex stores ship hulks awaiting refurbishing or the haul to Arcadia for ship-breaking, a task generally contracted to friendly megacorps. The station is traditionally commanded by an aging senior officer sent to quietly live out their mediocrity.

–In-Game Description

  • Hegemony Market
    • Stealth Minefields
    • Military Base
    • Orbital Station
    • 10^5 Population
  • Orbits Ragnar

Ragnar Relay[edit | edit source]

Ragnar Relay

A Domain-era technology used primarily on the frontier, this is a hyperwave communications array which transmits and receives data between star systems at faster-than-light speeds. The rapidly pulsing hyperwaves suitable for FTL data transmission have been shown to damage DNA so these relays are always stationed away from habitats.

–In-Game Description

  • Shares its orbit with Ragnar Complex

The Serpents (Asteroid Field)[edit | edit source]

  • Shares its orbit with Ragnar Complex

Ragnar Jump-point[edit | edit source]

  • Orbits Ragnar just outside an asteroid belt
