World Types


  • Continental — Rocky world with an active and stable hydrosphere. Great landmasses are separated by oceans, with large climate variations depending on latitude and precipitation.
  • Ocean — Rocky world with significant hydrosphere. Oceans cover more than 90% of the surface, with scattered islands making up the remaining percentage.
  • Tropical — Humid, rocky world. Seasons with significant precipitation are interchanged with drier periods. Most land covered in dense vegetation.
  • Cascadian — Sub-temperate mountainous world with coastal forests and towering mountain ranges. An active, stormy hydrosphere with strong differences between snowy winters and short warmer summers.
  • Atoll — An oceanic planet. Shallow lagoons, coral reefs and tropical islands make up the majority of this world, with warm temperatures supporting a very large biosphere.
  • Crag — Cold, rocky world with a significant hydrosphere. Oceans and polar ice caps cover more than 90% of the surface with rugged scattered islands dotting its surface. There is an abundance of volcanic and geothermal activity that supports marine ecosystems.
  • Swamp — A humid, wet world. Most of the planet is covered with densely forested wetlands with minimal surface areas not underwater. Hydrosphere is mainly in shallow seas, swamps, and bogs and supports a great abundance of plant and animal life.
  • Tepui — Mountainous, rocky world. Hydrosphere is mostly in low altitude seas, which cause considerable fog and cloud cover. In the higher altitudes, standing water is rare and most plant life relies on the mist and fog.
  • Retinal — Rocky world. Active and stable hydrosphere with great land masses that are separated by oceans. Plantlife is retinaldehyde based instead of chlorophyll based which gives it a distinct purple hue.
  • Forest — Rocky world with an active and stable hydrosphere. Great land masses are almost completely covered in mega-flora forests.
  • Mangrove — A wet world. Majority of the surface is covered in shallow seas with minimal land above sea level. Intense flora extends for hundreds of miles beyond the shores of the few existing islands. Hydrosphere is strong and stable, supporting a great abundance of flora and fauna.


  • Desert — Dry, rocky world. Precipitation and major bodies of surface water are relatively rare. Significant temperature variations between day and night cycles. Vegetation is scarce but even moderate precipitation can make the desert bloom.
  • Arid — Dry, rocky world. The dust-covered terrain consists largely of mesas and canyons. Forests can be found in the more temperate polar regions, but vegetation is otherwise scarce.
  • Savanna — Rocky world dominated by dry, arid plains. Small hydrosphere that allows for brief wet seasons, but aside from a few ubiquitous grasses vegetation is largely concentrated around shallow oases.
  • Steppe — Dry, rocky world. Semi-arid grasslands with rolling hills and plains covering much of the surface. While almost no trees grow on this world, the amount of rainfall can support shrubs and grasses.
  • Dune — A hot and dry rocky planet. Seas of sand dunes cover a considerable portion of the surface. Hydrosphere is mainly in underground aquifers that rise up in oasis and mountain springs.
  • Oasis — Rocky world with a hydrosphere that supports one large body of water which has a band of vegetation around it. Rain barely reaches the inland desert that covers the majority of the planet.
  • Mesa — Hot, dry and rocky world. Great plateaus and mesas are common around the equator, with cooler forested polar regions. Hydrosphere is mostly in large rivers that have cut canyons with vegetation covering riverbeds.
  • Atacama — Cold, dry, and rocky world. Extreme altitude peaks cause rain shadows for most of the planet, and salt flats and arid valleys make up most of the level land. The hydrosphere is in a few lakes and mountain springs.
  • Prairie — Rocky world and a seasonal hydrosphere with a single great landmass with large inland seas. Dry summers are contrasted by cold, harsh winters.
  • Mediterranean — Dry, rocky world. Hydrosphere supports several large inland seas, which is surrounded by sparse vegetation and shrubs. Inland, the areas are hot and arid as the norm.
  • Badlands — Dry, hot world. Most of the surface has been extensively eroded by wind and water, leaving steep slopes, minimal vegetation, and high drainage density. It may be covered in arid or semi-arid shrublands and deserts, while areas around water have more vegetation. Hydrosphere is mostly confined to a few inland seas and natural underground springs.


  • Arctic — Frigid, rocky world. The poles are big and significant water deposits can be found permanently frozen as glacial ice. However, the planet experiences season variations and the equatorial band is covered by vegetation.
  • Alpine — Mountainous world. Snow covers the mountaintops and frozen-over lakes dot the valleys. While the planet experiences minimal seasonal variations, the still-liquid water beneath the frozen surface of the lakes is enough to sustain some hardy vegetation.
  • Tundra — Cold and rocky world. Permafrost covers most of the surface except for the more temperate equatorial regions. A stable biosphere exists but vegetation is mostly limited to mosses and lichens.
  • Bog — Cold, muddy world with a thick atmosphere. Seasonal variation is limited with significant precipitation. Most landmasses are covered in dense vegetation.
  • Frigid — Frigid, rocky world. Precipitation is low and major bodies of surface water are rare. Even in daytime average temperatures are often well below freezing.
  • Glacial — Frigid, icy world. While water deposits can be found as frozen glacial ice most of the year, summer months have significant melt and snow is quite common. Geothermal activity causes permanent holes in the ice and helps support an abundance of marine life under the thick surface ice.
  • Boreal — Rocky world. This planet has a subarctic climate, with a very large temperature range between seasons but the long and cold winter is the dominant feature. Boreal forests cover the planet's warmer latitudes, with tundra and ice near the poles.
  • Highland — A cold and damp world. Most of the planet is covered in misty highlands and plateaus with hardy grasses and lichens. Hydrosphere is generally stable between frozen mountain ranges and large inland seas.
  • Antarctic — Frigid and rocky world. Hydrosphere is mostly frozen, with diamond dust being as common as snow. While winds can reach speeds of over 250km per hour in the winter months, life can be found in isolated pockets under sea ice, in caves and in protected valleys.
  • Snow — Frigid, rocky world. Currently experiencing a significant ice-age, most of the planet is covered in glaciers. The equatorial band is covered by thick temperatre forests.
  • Montane — Rocky world with extensive mountain ranges where the majority of the habitable regions are found along the slopes. Due to high rainfall the slopes can support a wide variety of flora and fauna.


  • Geothermal — Cold, icy planet with tropical rifts that break up the expanses of ice that are heated by natural geothermal vents. The hydrosphere is in melt water and steam rising from the vents.
  • Superhabitable — A rocky world. This world retained many of its gases while forming and therefore has a denser atmosphere with an average temperature of around 25 degrees celsius. This has also had the effect of decreasing ocean basic size which encourages marine life. Ideally supports all forms of life.
  • Tidally Locked — A rocky world. The world is tidally locked to its sun with one side of the planet in constant daylight and the other in constant night. A thin habitable zone exists in the twilight region. Constant sunlight and wind make for interesting weather.
  • Bioluminescent — A tropical, rocky world. Exotic but non-toxic particles in the atmosphere cause almost constant cloud cover. Despite this, due to the greenhouse effect and geothermal activity, life thrives on the surface. Bioluminescence is common amongst flora and fauna.
  • Mycelium — Cold, rocky world. Myceilical and fungal life rule the ecosystem of this planet. Vast areas of planet are covered in mushroom forests and cave systems.
  • Karst — Rocky world. With a weak magnetosphere muchg of the surface of this world is mostly barren karst. Under the surface there is an endless series of cave systems with a rich hydrosphere.
  • Primal — Rocky world. This young world's volcanic activity has slowed down giving rise to increasingly complex flora and fauna which has helped create a breathable atmosphere and stabilizing hydrosphere.
  • Aquatic — A rocky world with a significant hydrosphere. 100% of the world's ocean is covered in oceans.
  • Salt — Rocky world. The mineral-covered terrain consists largely of salt flats, mountain ranges and large crystal formations. Much of the surtface is inhospitable to most forms of plant and animal life.
  • Ash — Rocky world. Although this young world has cooled from its molten past it still has considerable seismic and volcanic activity. The atmosphere on these worlds tends to be toxic.
  • Gaea — A rocky world that has a perfect hydrosphere and atmosphere with many niche climates on its surface. Any form of life could survive somewhere on this world, if not everwhere.
