    "For many years succession was restricted to the male line, and it was claimed various means were used to restrict royal births to only male children. This practice was later abandoned, and recent events at the heart of the Empire indicate that male succession may soon be broken."

    "For many years succession was restricted to the male line, and it was claimed various means were used to restrict royal births to only male children. This practice was later abandoned, and not long after the laws of succession were changed in 3301, Arissa Lavigny-Duval was declared Emperor in the same year."

    Alternatively, I'd just remove the paragraph altogether, since it's not terribly relevant to the article anyway.

    Thanks, Ill update it right away. Both these entries are a bit of 'placeholder' for the time being - while we wait in anticipation for Drew Wagar to make a blog post about the official lore of the Alliance and Empire.

    I really loved the gazeteer that came with FE2 - if that information was considered canon Id love to add some of it to the map...

    POI Name: IC 5217
    Galmap Ref: CSI+50-22218
    Desc: "IC 5217 is a planetary nebula and is found in the constellation of Lacerta. The first discovery was made by William Paton Stevens Fleming in 1904. The main star is a Wolf-Rayet Star with a solar mass of 1.21 and a solar radius of 5. Other objects in the system are 2 Class V giants and 2 massive ringed HMC."
















    Fly/land safe.

    POI name: stellar feature
    Galmap ref: Hypao Chraea RY-Y d1-6

    Desc: On approach to Wagar's Reach we have this system with an earth-like planet and four waterworlds (three of which are terraformable) sharing same odd orbit.

    POI Name: Phaethon
    POI type: Planetary
    Galmap ref: Wrupaea TI-B e1021

    This system contains a hot class 5 gas giant orbiting a white dwarf about once every 38.5 minutes. The entire orbit lies deep within the white dwarf's exclusion zone, making the gas giant unreachable. The gas giant's orbital inclination of 135.45° suggests that it has been captured by the white dwarf. And the fact that it's not tidally locked could mean that this didn't happen very long ago or that its orbit is decaying.



    Imgur album that contains a gif and a few screenshots: http://imgur.com/a/Vp8bi


    Here are some calculations because the game displays for the orbit and semi major axis 0 days or AU respectively:
    I used this formula which derived from Keplars 3rd Law:


    Solar mass of white dwarf: 0.5156
    Mass of our sun (solar mass 1): 1.989 * 10^30 kg
    => Mass of WD 1.02553 * 10^30 kg = M

    Orbital period = ~ 35.5 minutes => 2310 seconds = T
    G = gravitational constant
    Semi major axis (a) = 209,883,959.96 m => 0.0014 AU

    Nice! Can you add that to this thread please? https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...-a-WD-(or-NS-)

    Map entry on Deep Space Outposts in the Pleiades has been updated after recent developments...

    Link to information on the 100+ settlements in Colonia has been added to map entries on the Colonia Region, Nebula and System.

    Information on the Animula Spires (first fungal life found in space) has been added and updated.

    ----------------------------

    A note on geysers

    We would like to add noteworthy geysers and fumaroles to the map, but at the same time there are simply too many geysers and fumaroles to add all of them. Some sites stand out due to outcroppings of crystals or other materials. Some sites are located in remarkable locations with dramatic geological features nearby or a nebula backdrop. A beautiful screenshot and an interesting name and description helps as well.

    Apart from these rather loose guidelines you could ask yourself this question: "If someone were travelling through this region of the galaxy, would they be willing to make a 1000+ LY detour to visit this site?"

    If the answer is "no", then you should probably not submit the site to the GMP.

    Hope this helps

    Jumponium Rich System found near the Bubble. System contains all material needed for all stages of synthesis.

    New POI

    Name: 31 Pegasi
    POI type: Stellar Feature
    Galmap ref: 31 Pegasi

    Desc: This relatively hot and bright Class B star was originally found within the constellation Pegasus. It is one of the few stellar objects outside of the Bubble that 20th Century astronomers were successfully able to estimate the distance to using stellar parallax and the crude satellite telescope technology available at the time. Five brown dwarfs and an Class L star orbit 31 Pegasi, along with two gas giants and two high metal content worlds.

    New POI

    Name: NGC 6842
    POI type: Planetary Nebula
    Galmap ref: Csi+29-19529

    Desc: Discovered in 1919 by American astronomer Heber D. Curtis, this planetary nebula located in the constellation Vulpecula was one of the faintest nebulae included in the New General Catalogue -- despite being located only 6000 light years from Sol. Its nebular cloud is blue with faint ring-like structures and the system at its core includes a Wolf-Rayet star orbited by two Class Y brown dwarfs, a high metal content world with a molten silicate atmosphere, and another high metal content with an extremely active volcanic surface.

    New POI

    Name: NGC 6852
    POI type: Planetary Nebula
    Galmap ref: IRAS 19581+0135

    Desc: This green nebula found in the constellation Aquila is one of the approximarly 600 nebulae discovered by German astronomer Albert Marth while he was serving as an assistant to William Lassell at his Tigné Point observatory in Malta in the 1860s. The nebula contains a Wolf-Rayet star that is orbited by three dwarf stars -- a Class M orbiting 250 light seconds away and a second Class M locked in a binary orbit with a Class L star further out.
