At a Glance
Velod- or Andreliam- is an ocean moon of a large gas giant. As ocean worlds go, it has incredible depths of more than 250 kilometers, but also tidal marshes and swamped land that is at or just above sea level. Most of the Velodi cities perch on ultra-high megacities on these swampy or coral-ridden outcrops. Other settlements are free-floating cities, flexibly structured to deal with the swells and ebbs of the Velodi oceans. Still others are bathyscaphe colonies- most of which are military or government in nature. Equatorial skyhooks connect ultra-wealthy and military facilities to the planet.
Perhaps the strangest, most alien aspect of Velod is the almost total lack of Kolari fashion, architecture or culture. Instead there is an aesthetic that is dark, brooding, gothic in a form of simplicity. It feels like a dark reflection of some kind of industrial Orion junta. In the perpetually twilight skyline above the spires and fusion furnace vents is the silhouette of Andreliam Major and, on occasion, the binary warm white stars.
