The planet Galabavorn is the 5th planet in the Celanon system. Galabavorn is an average sized planet, but has no atmosphere, and has a very peculiar pattern of rotation. The surface of the planet is covered mostly in ice, an ocean splitting the northern and southern continents.
The northern continent consists mostly ice plains. The northern part of the continent is extremely cold, and there is a very high amount of solar radiation that strikes the surface near the northern pole. The southern portion of the continent is extremely flat, until it intersects with the ocean. The ocean meets the northern continent at a 200-meter high cliff that runs ¾ of the length of the continent. Only at the western end, the cliff gets smaller and becomes less ominous.
The “ocean” of Galabavorn is quite large, and consists almost completely of liquid nitrogen, cold enough to completely freeze a humanoid body within 20 seconds. The ocean runs extremely deep, and makes contact with magma flows under the surface in certain places, creating lava vents on the bottom. Occasionally, in a particularly shallow spot, steam plumes can be seen coming from the bottom of the ocean as the super-cooled liquid nitrogen makes contact with the hot magma. The southern continent is the largest continent on Galabavorn. An enormous dormant volcano lies on the southernmost edge of the continent, near the southern pole. The rest of the continent consists of snowy mountain ranges, plains, and large fissures. The most interesting part about Galabavorn is its rotational pattern. While it has a generally circular orbit, the planet does not rotate about its axis. This means that the same side of the planet is always in darkness, keeping that side of the planet much colder then the light side.
While the planet itself is unremarkable, the planet’s rings have interesting qualities. Several small rings orbit the planet, consisting of very small pieces of what could have once been a moon of Galabavorn. The rings are a navigational hazard, but contain many remarkable ores that could be extracted if one dared to enter the rings.
