Introduction to Planet Algol, it's Satellites and Suns

ALGOL
An Earth-like planet orbiting the 3 suns of the Beta Persei system. Compared to Earth, Algol has: Lower gravity. Denser atmosphere. Smaller oceans. A very much slower, or nonexistent rate of continental drift. A much thicker crust that is honeycombed with tunnels and massive chambers, both natural and artificial. 3 moons: Ninev, Zhoxx and Thoggyu.

Algol has regions that differ wildly with the rest of the planet regarding gravity, atmosphere (or the presence thereof!), seasons, weather, radiation, and other factors. Much of this seems to be the legacy of a planet-wide cataclysmic conflict, which seems to have ruined or warped much of the world rendering a sizable portion of the surface into wasteland.

Algol is much older than Earth, and has had life and intelligent inhabitants for far longer. Over the billions of years, many races and civilizations, both native and alien, have inhabited Algol, leaving the legacy of their sorcery and science scattered across the planet. Many of the alien races that have inhabited Algol brought flora and fauna from their home worlds or dimensions.

Over billions of years many strange varieties of life have arose on the world, many the result of the strange energies and radiations of the planet or the experimentation of ancients, scientists and sorcerers.

Earth plant and animal species, not only from the present but from every era of the planet, exist on Algol, such as trilobites, dinosaurs, smilodons and humans. Over the millennia in the weird environments of Algol many of those species have developed along strange evolutionary paths as well and there are many different races of man that are, despite being wholly human, are radically different in appearance to Earth men, possessing strange coloration or features such as crests, webbed digits, scaled skin, or other such things strange to our earth sensibilities.

BETA PERSEI
The solar system that Algol is located in is Beta Persei. The 3 suns of Beta Persei are the blue-white Ghoul Queen, closely orbited by the the small white Gorgon's Eye and orbited further out by the large, orange Fire Demon; blotched with sunspots and bearing a halo of fiery gases. Years on Algol are measured by the rotation of the Fire Demon around the Ghoul Queen, which takes 681 years. An Algol day is approximately the same length as an Earth day, and Algol Men use a 7 day week and 28 day month, their years have 24 months with an additional 9 day festival week at year's end.

NINEV
The closest of Algol's moons, a fuzzy silvery-gray and reputed to be home to a race of gods. Ninev is visible during the day.

THOGGYU
The most distant of Algol's moons, shrouded in darkness and of accursed reputation. Thoggyu is the smallest moon and is only discernable by the stars it blots out.

ZHOXX
One of Algol's moons, it's orbit lies between Ninev and Thoggyu. Zhoxx resembles Earth's moon in appearance and coloration, is larger than Ninev and visible during daytime.

  1. I know this is a super old post and I am high on mushrooms but I am totally not understanding the math of:
    "Years on Algol are measured by the rotation of the Fire Demon around the Ghoul Queen, which takes 681 years. An Algol day is approximately the same length as an Earth day, and Algol Men use a 7 day week and 28 day month, their years have 24 months with an additional 9 day festival week at year's end."
    So one Algol year = 681 Earth Years OR 1 Algol year = roughly 12.92 earth years?

  2. Yes, 24 months of each 28 days, plus a 9 day festival week at years end = 681 days.
    So there was a typo in the script (post above), it should read: "Years on Algol are measured by the rotation of the Fire Demon around the Ghoul Queen, which takes 681 DAYS".
