RSY-0044 Jomben
Jomben is the fourth and outermost moon of the fourth planet. It has been partially Rajaformed. A few of its native species survive on parts of it which have not been Rajaformed. One of these native species plays a key part in one of the main stories in the series.

RSY-0050 Ijos
Ijos is Golden’s fifth planet. It occupies the sixth orbital shell about its sun. It is the outermost of the middle planets. It is fully Rajaformed and supports the largest sentient population in the planetary system. It is also the system’s capital world and home to the headquarters of most of the system’s major commercial organizations. Considerable action in the series takes place on Ijos.

RSY-0051 Ectuin
Ectuin is the inner moon of the fifth planet. It is honeycombed with artificial habitat spaces and is known for its decadent nightlife. Major scientific research important to a major plot in the series is being done at one of its institutions of higher learning.

RSY-0052 Haktuin
Haktuin is the second and outer moon of the fifth planet. It supports numerous artificial habitat spaces. Only two moons in the planetary system are closer to their planets than Haktuin is to its, one of those two being its sister moon.

RSY-0060 Jugha
Jugha, the gas giant, is the sixth planet in the planetary system. It occupies the eighth orbital shell about its sun. It has more moons than any other planet in the planetary system. Five of the seven largest moons in the system orbit it.

RSY-0061 Nordin

RSY-0070 Douchet
Douchet is the seventh planet in the planetary system. It occupies the ninth orbital shell about its sun. It has numerous faint rings which are visible from habitats on and about its moons.

RSY-0071 Mitven
Mitven is the inner moon of the seventh planet, its only intact moon. A medium sized moon, Mitven supports several large artificial habitats and a sentient population. It is orbited by several large artificial satellites and is a major outpost of sentient activity in the planetary system. One of the artificial habitats which orbit it is the scene of a great deal of action in the series.

RSY-0072 Jarvig Moon Belt
The Jarvig Moon Belt is an asteroid belt surrounding the seventh planet, occupying its second and outermost shell. The belt is believed to have been formed by the breakup of a large moon, perhaps when it collided with a crossover planet or a comet. The belt is a mining center. Many of the larger rocks in the belt support small artificial habitats in which the mining personnel live. An important battle takes place in the Jarvig Moon Belt in one book in the series.

RSY-0080 Topolden
Topolden is the eighth planet in the planetary system. It occupies the tenth orbital shell about its star. It is too far distant from its sun, and its atmosphere is too turbulent, for it to support a permanent settlement.

RSY-0081 Marjos
Marjos is the lone moon of the eighth planet. It supports a small artificial habitat with a permanent population made up mostly of scientific researchers, making it the outermost inhabited body in the planetary system.
