Amoris is a star system promoting love, understanding, growth and diversity within its central planet 'BonaVibes', and across its other 6 sought-after planets 'Armonia', 'Gratia', 'Evolurum', 'Ancestros', 'Libr8', and 'Sanctum'.
ASSUMING. Most of the seven societies living on Aszura in the Keystone system referred to it as “progress”, though the sixth society would often use a more derogatory term. Aszura grew all 7 of those societies quickly. Technology advancement flourished helped in large part by the strong yellow Keystone sun that kept Aszura under a slow 38-hour rotation. Aided as well by Aszura’s three local moons that were curiously rich in rare mineral deposits. From time-to-time small skirmishes would break out amongst the seven societies, but for the most part the mineral Harvest of these moons came at a predictable pace for many eons. Aszurans would look to the stars beyond Keystone, knowing the strife in the other parts of the Galaxy. Still, they whetted their appetites, they indulged in their good fortune and took no heed from alien travelers of just how good life was on Aszura. Or how other worlds could benefit from greater trade with Aszura. Aszurans preferred to keep to themselves. Farther out in the Keystone system, well beyond Aszura, were three gas giants which helped shield Aszura from threatening meteors and the occasional comet. And beyond those gas giants, several rocky planets coated in ice considered to be inhabitable, and worthless in mineral wealth. Nature however abhors a vacuum, most societies of Aszura paid little attention to what they were creating, though the sixth society alone would often protest the risks being created.
DESPERATION. Aszuran technology wasn’t the most advanced in the galaxy, but it was one of the most dependent on those rare elements its moons had long provided, and for which the Aszurans believed would last them several million years. What the Aszurans miscalculated was the effect one very significant comet would have on the orbits of their gas giants. Nearly the size of Aszura itself, the comet entered the Keystone system with very little warning, and even less time to prepare. A massive ice ball possibly thrown across stellar space from another star system, it sped by the gas giants tossing their orbits across one another and into collision. The effects were both catastrophic, and also strangely fortunate (as the future would come to realize). As the comet sped by Aszura it pulled the three moons out of their orbits at an accelerated rate, tearing them into pieces. To the Aszurans, the loss of their moons would soon mean the loss of their seven societies, and the civilization itself. Wars broke out, factions developed, and in the end two societies came to dominate, having killed off the others or absorbed them into their own. And still, neither society would ask those in alien worlds outside the Keystone system for help. In desperation to save their planet a scientist stepped forward with a promising technology she said would save Aszura, convincing most everyone that that she alone could essentially “cleave” elements needed out of their yellow Keystone sun while maintaining the relative gravity within the Keystone system. So desperate were the Aszurans, they approved the use of this tech based on the complex computational models by the women. Her idea was to simply “cut-away” a small portion of Keystone’s outer shell using advanced particle beams and release those precious rare minerals into the inner solar system for continued Harvesting. What in fact took place was a chain reaction that successfully cleaved a portion Keystone but created such an explosion that material was sent much farther than the Aszurans were told to expect from the women’s computational models. Under normal conditions a yellow sun will take approximately one billion years to burn its fuel to become a red giant. What in fact took place was that the Keystone lost so much of its fuel it began expanding into a red giant almost immediately. It grew, it enlarged, and it devoured Aszura in a matter of days.
KNOWING. Aszurans perished, but a few were lucky enough to escape the planet and the growing red giant in ships prepared strangely ahead of the cleaving. These lucky few would travel out beyond the two asteroid fields of this new star system, and farther toward the planets once of ice that now were inhabitable with water and exposed minerals. The paradise of the Azsuran civilization was gone forever. The Harvest would never come as easily as it once did. The survivors had to make peace with local aliens travelling through the system, establish trade, make sacrifices Aszurans had never been willing to accept. These new inhabits of the now red giant system knew their people had lived a privileged life, and vowed never to be so self-centered, indulgent, and selfish as they once had been. They renamed their new planets after the new values they chose to take into their hearts. And their new red giant, they named Amoris, The Love Star, to remind them that an open community is better than one keeping itself behind walls, that diversity is better than exclusion, and expressing acceptance in the cosmos would lead to better worlds for themselves, and others. And today, only a few know the women who brought the cleave, the women who faked her research modelling how the cleave would be successful, the women who knew what cleaving Keystone would ultimately result in, in fact came from the sixth society.
