|Beta Pictoris b, before depletion. The planet had a rotation period of only 8 hours, so was visibly oblate, despite its high gravity. In the Current Era,this planet has been stripped of most of its volatiles, to become the artificial chthonian world Little Chafont.|

|Little Chafont is a hot core, slowly cooling but still rotating rapidly. It is surrounded by orbital rings that are removing power and resources over time|
