Reptus

Reptus is in a binary star system called Magus Minus (named after the two stars). It orbits Magus perpendicular to the line between Magus and Minus. Combined with the angle of the planet’s axis and gravitational ‘wobble’ from Minus, over three quarters of the planet has either 2 or less hours of night, with a good third of the planet being continual daylight. Also, due to this orbit, the north pole of the planet is in perpetual darkness. Reptus is about twice the size of Earth; with about a 50% land mass and takes 40 hours to complete a revolution. Although exposed to constant sunlight, the winds of the planet, in conjunction with the north pole’s icy conditions keeps the planet well watered. Average temperature at the South pole is around 140 degrees year round. For the rest of the planet, save the north pole, the temperature fluctuates upon the seasons with a hot summer day reaching around 120 degrees and a cold winter night around 70. Due to the short night cycle, heat doesn’t escape from the ground quick enough to make it colder. The majority of Reptus’ land mass ranges from desert to tropical forest, depending upon the flow of the water from the Northern regions.
