Weite - Breaking the Shackles
Excalibur is resonantly locked with its primary, Artur, orbiting at a distance of 0.30 AU and rotating three times every two orbits. Many of its native life forms have evolved into “striders” that spend their entire life cycle following the sun. Excalibur has three small moons. While two are typical, the third, Bedwyr, seems to be a captured body, which entered orbit over Excalibur approximately 4,000-5,000 years ago.
Excalibur was a member of the Sword Worlds Confederation. In the aftermath of the Fifth Frontier War Excalibur was wracked by civil war and in 1116 it became part of the Border Worlds Confederation. Excalibur has a military base. Its starport, Raskarhamm, is located on a peninsula of the Arkjahav Sea.
