Doris Geographic Location in Star Wars: Shards | World Anvil



Holopedia Galactica entry:

Doris is a water world in the Doris System of the Freeworlds Territory in the Tapani Sector.
It is within the standard gravity range of typical inhabited planets in the galaxy.
Local days are seventeen standard hours long.
Local years are three hundred forty-five local days long.
Doris has a Type II atmosphere: Breath Mask suggested for most species. Levels of CO2 and Sulfur Dioxide are higher outside of habitation domes than human and near-human species should experience for long periods. Without a breath mask, detrimental effects, such as slowed reactions, reduced brain activity, poisoning, or a myriad of other effects can begin to occur within just a few hours of exposure.
The axis of the planet is nearly perpendicular to the orbital plane, causing little seasonal variation throughout the local year. Temperatures average between -5 and 29 degrees Celsius, and are in the most comfortable temperature bands for humans and many near-human species.
The sentient population of Doris was counted in the census of Tapani Year 12720 as 5.3 million.
The planet is only 5-14 percent covered by land. Most of the planet is covered by water or another liquid, and the few land masses that do exist are wet. Bogs and swamps are common. Many population centers are located partially or completely under the surface of the water.
The primary starport on Doris, which is located on a plateau near the highest land elevation on Doris, is Standard Class: fully-staffed and equipped. Restocking services are available, and there is a small shipyard for minor repairs and modifications. Prices for repairs and modifications can be up to double normal prices due to the system's remote location compared to main hyperspace travel routes, and may also take twice as long to accomplish.
Ships which do not pay their docking fees within sixty standard days are, by law and custom, stripped of all computers and mechanical components, sealed with several sprayed layers of plascrete, and sunk into the ocean near the coast of a continent to serve as the foundation for new barrier reefs. Such occasions are usually treated as regional holidays, with the entire community participating in the preparation of the ship and a festival while the new reef is settled into its position.
