Forton

The smaller of Luratia’s two super-satellites. Like the Alteron satellite platform, Forton collects and transmits solar power to the planet, which is then wirelessly distributed world-wide.

Forton hosts a powerful telescope which broadcasts images of space to large public screens found in urban areas across the Continent and Northern Wershonia and in the tourist destinations around the world. Since my planet is cloudy, Luratians catch only the slightest glimpses of the stars and planets in the night sky.

Forton is home to as many as 36 residents. The residents of Forton and Alteron work on a rotating schedule of 90 days on and 30 days off.
