Master’s Pet - Terradyne

Details about the world and life in Master’s Pet
The world in Master’s Pet is set in an alternate universe/dimension that is highly advanced yet agrarian in nature.
Terradyne is an Earth type, class M planet that is approximately 2 times the size of Jupiter. Terradyne is located in a binary star system named Velora, the two suns are named Vaverde (the largest a class A sun that is 100 times the size of Sol) and Valishade (a blue dwarf twice the size of Sol). Terradyne is the 6th planet of 20 and the 4th largest of all planets.
Terradyne has a mean tilt of 45 degrees with a planetary mean temperature of 28c or 85f degrees at the equator and -54c or -66f at the poles. Terradyne has 4 moons: Altair (the smallest), Demos (the largest habitable moon), Sangria 2nd largest) and Ozo (2nd smallest). Terradyne takes 1245 Earth days to orbit Vaverde and Valishade and is located approximately 15AU from its suns. Terradyne has a rotational period of 45 hours.
Demos is 3 times the size of Earth has a hot tropical climate with a population of 10 billion people. The gravity on Demos is ¾ that of the mother planet Terradyne and its orbital time is 398 Earth days with a rotational period of 20 hours. Demos’ elliptical orbit brings it within 5 million Km to Terradyne at apogee and 32 million Km at perigee and is on a 15 degree inclination to Terradyne’s tilt.
Sangria is Earth sized with 1/6 the gravity of the mother planet and airless. Sangria takes 210 days to orbit Terradyne. At apogee, Sangria comes within 1.5 million Km of the home planet and 16 million Km at perigee with a 5 degree inclination to the home planet’s tilt.
Ozo is the size of Mars and like both Sangria and Altair is airless and devoid of any life. Ozo is contrary to the three other moons as it orbits the home planet pole to pole at a distance of approximately 26 million Km from the planet. Its orbit takes nearly 15 years and the moon’s rotational period is non-exsistant.
Altair is the smallest and the size of Earth’s moon. It is similar to Ozo in its orbital pattern except that it is located on the equatorial plane. Altair is also unique in that its orbital track as it has the same orbital time frame as Ozo, though with one major difference, Altair’s rotational period is 2 hours, making any surface landings all but impossible. Altair’s orbital distance from Terradyne is 20 million Km.
A full lunar/solar eclipse when all four moons, both suns and all 20 planets are in alignment is very rare and celebrated when it occurs.
The Population of Terradyne is 80 billion of which, 2.6 billion are slaves (which will be discussed later in this presentation). Terradyne is home to 50 sentient species Lions, Tigers, Cheetahs, Wolves, Foxes, Coyotes, Rabbits, Bats, Humans, Badgers, Nagas, Dragons, Horses, Zebras, Dogs, Cats, Leopards, Frogs, Dolphins, Whales, Mice, Rats, Voles, Weasels, Ferrets, Apes, Chimpanzees, Monkeys, Fossa, Gazelles, Deer, Wolverines, Sharks, Octopi, Bears, Shrews, Lemurs, Otters, Sergals, Skunks, Squirrels, Ocelots, Lynxes, Panthers, Cougars, Kangaroos, Mongoose, Minks, Pandas, and Hyenas.
At one point in Terradyne’s past there was over 1000 sentient species, ut due to predation and retaliation the number of species was reduced dramatically until it stabilized at the current count. What stopped the decimation of sentient species was a covenant that was instituted centuries ago that prevented entire species from being wiped out by predators or prey when they retaliated.
The covenant dictates that should a predator species raid a prey species, they are only allowed to kill no more than three family lines of any prey, not to mention that in order to keep a family line form disappearing completely, no less than two young from what line is being killed for food is spared and left to rebuild that line for 6 generations.
Due to the numerous sentient species the lifespan varies. For example the lifespans for the major species…
Dragons: Lifespan eons (unknown at this time)
Rabbits, Lemurs, Otters and Foxes: Approximately 2500 years.
Wolves, Cheetahs and all canid and felinid species: Approximately 1600 years
Nagas: 500 years
Humans, Mice, Rats, Weasels, Lemurs, Ferrets and Shrews: 250 years
Dolphins, Whales, and Octopi: 700 – 750 years
All equine, bovine type species are the 2nd longest lived on the planet living up to approximately 2800 years
All other species lifespans vary between 250 – 1000 years
World economy: Terradyne’s economy is platinum based
1 Platinum round = 1000 Gold rounds
1 Gold round = 250 Silver rounds
1 Silver round = 100 Copper rounds
As stated earlier, Terradyne has a population of 80 billion people, of which 2.6 billion are slaves. Slavery on Terradyne is a major aspect of the economy. There are two types of slaves, Nareh and Udai.
Nareh slaves are those citizens who choose to live life as a slave. These citizens sign contracts that last from 100 years or until the day they pass on. They are held in high regard and treated with respect. Nareh are not immune from hard labor even though they can be found performing more of the lighter tasks, street sweeping, housekeeping, pleasure houses, some governmental duties, etc. Nareh are allowed to wear clothing but only at a bare minimum to be comfortable.
The Udai slaves are those who have been forced into slavery by committing crimes against nature, crimes against civilization, prisoners of war, etc. Udai are rarely seen in public, and usually only when being led to the mines for hard labor. Udai are not allowed to wear clothing of any type.
Both the Nareh and Udai are allowed to marry and bear children, cubs, etc. But if they marry a free citizen, they will remain a slave until their contract expires. When either a Nareh or Udai gives birth, their young belong to both worlds. When the young become adults (usually at the age of 50), they have to choose which life they want to live.
When the Nareh enters the slave market, they are sent to auction houses to be sold as property to their new owners. 20% of the final sale price for any Nareh is put into an account that they can access to purchase needed necessities. Nareh can purchase a slave or two themselves and are wholly responsible for that slave’s care and well being.
The Udai on the other hand don’t receive the benefit account that the Nareh receive upon getting sold. Udai slaves only attain freedom on the day that they die.
The only thing that both the Udai and Nareh slaves have in common it an intricate gold and silver band of living metal around their left arm. The living metal is a parasitic entity that relies on the slave’s bio-electric rhythms to survive. The Nareh and Udai have said that during the process when the metal works its way into their arm and bonds with them, is similar to ones limb falling asleep and waking up, pins and needles.
Terradyne’s technological level is 1000s of years ahead of Earth’s. One can find the tech all over the planet if they were to look hard enough. The vast majority of Terradyne’s technology is integrated into everything around them, plants, homes, everything. The technology there would be considered biological/technical, high tech but agrarian.
