Palamok is the third planet of the Napret system, and the homeworld of the Yanme'e. The planet is orbited by four moons: Naxook, Oquiu, Ka'amoti, and Kami.

Topography[edit]

Palamok is a massive planet with a stable environment. The atmosphere is quite warm.[1] Its atmospheric composition is similar to that of Earth, yet inhospitable to humans. Palamok itself is quite earthlike, although significantly larger and tending to tropical extremes. It is a flat and geologically featureless world, with little tectonic or volcanic activity. It has average surface temperatures of 29°C to 42°C (84.2°F to 107.6°F), and has a gravity is two times that of Earth. This would present a challenge on the evolution of the wings of the Yanme'e, but it gives them excellent flight skills in the gravity of Earth and caused the development of their hard carapaces.[2]

Trivia[edit]

Palamok in Filipino means "increasing of mosquitoes", which likely refers to the insectoid body structure and behavior of the Yanme'e.
