Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Thanks, that was a puzzle that kept me up last night on a Google marathon. Very satisfying to get an answer. (Admittedly not from my own research.)

Re: (L&N) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

If English was OSV what would "I wish he would stop killing me" become? I wish me he would stop killing? He I wish would stop killing me? He I wish killing me would stop?

Re: Is this a realistic conastronomy?

Regarding Axiem's comment: Eh, I made the numbers based off Earth (I copped out by saying that Earth was created artificially in the future based off Kímera), but they're not entirely consistent as a whole. Fortunately I'm not so incompetent astronomy-wise to think those two terms are the same, thou...

Re: Is this a realistic conastronomy?

Oh wait, Fahrenheit? No, that would make it a small red dwarf. 5,890F is only 3,500-ish Kelvin. Ach, I meant to type Kelvin, sorry! [xD] Actually, on the note of temperature, I might have to agree with Pabappa, but only based on a cursory search, about the surface temperatures of Kímera. The North ...

Re: Is this a realistic conastronomy?

Thank you for the thorough answer, that was very helpful. Could I reduce the temperature of Alda instead of changing Kímera's distance to it--if so, would 5,890 degrees fahrenheit be reasonable? I've edited the moons accordingly, thanks for that as well! [:D]

you'll need a large landmass at both poles.
Yeah, fortunately I have made a map of the world yet--so will do! By large do you mean Antarctica sized or bigger, like Africa?

Temperatures are in Fahrenheit I assume?
Yep, that's probably worthy of noting somewhere.

Is this a realistic conastronomy?

(The reason I'm not posting this in the Conworld section is because I'm a beginner and worried this is unrealistic, but if you want to move this, by all means go ahead.) Kímera is 4% larger than Earth, although its density is almost equivalent. Its water-to-land ratio is about 55:45. The average tem...
