Ialfa's Home System

Ialfa from Space

Ialfa's home system has six known planets. Ialfa has four moons, (although two are quite small). The study of astrology is quite popular and there is a standard 'zodiac' of constellations and a mythology based on these heavenly inhabitants that seemly dates back into the mists of time to when all the people of the world were one, as there are strong similarities between names, roles and certain stories. The sun is a father/king figure, and the moons the mother/queen and her two daughters and one son -- the smallest and most distant moon, which does not have an apparent diameter when seen with the naked eye. The casting of horoscopes based on these mythologies is common in Borgim.
