Planet Arran
Catalog > Planet Arran

Arran is the fifth planet in the Albreda Star System. On Earth, we call that star Aldebaran, the Eye of Taurus, the Bull.

The skies of Arran are generally a dusty color. There is one ringed moon called Artis.

The culture of Arran is like that of the Ancient Celts and the languages are similar to old Celtic and Gaelic. The population is sparsely spread, divided into nine provinces, each ruled by a hereditary queen and her parliament.

Shea is the capital of Padraig, as well as the global centre of government. The planet's population was nearly wiped out a thousand years ago, but today, that number has risen to 40,000,000.

The High Queen of Arran, also a hereditary position, lives in the ancient castle north of Shea, called Caer Coill, the Castle of the Woods.

While they prefer the ambiance of Earth's medieval era, the technology of Arran far exceeds that of Earth.

The native population consists only of women. Men that live on Arran are imported from Earth and have been for a thousand years. Most of the men are from Ireland and England, but more are coming from the Western world. English is the second most prevalent language, as the men speak it and the women have had to learn it for their expeditions to Earth. A form of ancient Gaelic tongue is the mother language, and a few small areas have their own dialects..

The military is small but efficient, and the generals in each country answer to the General of the Royal Guard of Caer Coill, who lives at the residence of the High Queen. To date, there has been no reason to increase the size of the military.

Planet Arran, Albreda Star System
Planet Arran, Albreda Star System

Arran is the fifth planet of the star Albreda.

Arran's moon, Artis, has rings around it. The skies are generally a dusty color and days on Arran are nearly the same length as Earth days. The years are calculated using Earth length years as Earth plays an important part in the history of Arran and the continuation of their race. It takes the world about thirty Earth years to complete one orbit around its sun.

Arran also houses the offices of the new Planetary League of the Ancients, being the first planet of the five charter members, along with Daga, Terra, Negus, and Sukunka. 

There are nine provinces on the planet, each with their own queen and internal military. Shea, capital city of Padraig, the largest province, is the location Caer Coill, the home of the High Queen of Arran. The palace has a small military task force which supersedes the provincial militia whenever the High Queen is present. 

This is the home world of Moya, Katrina, Einin, Finna, and several other women, and their husbands. While they prefer the ambiance of Earth's medieval era, the technology of Arran far exceed that of Earth.

The population of the planet is about 40,000,000, and the women outnumber the men on this planet by about 30/1, due to a genetic problem which nearly wiped out the entire culture two thousand years ago.

Caer Coill is the name of the home of the High Queen of Arran and is located just north of Shea, capital of Padraig.

The City of Shea from the air looks quite similar to the City of Calgary, Alberta. Parallel Universes?
