Time Heals All Wounds - Oltanis by MartinGust Time Heals All Wounds - Oltanis by MartinGust
Planet Oltanis from Ratchet and Clank (the first game), as a healed and rebuilt version... Hope you like it ^_^

A commission from :icontanor-faux: ~Tanor-Faux
The story he wrote for it:

It’s been 12 years since the destruction of Planet Oltanis by the one named Drek. Drek was not the only one to cause destruction to Oltanis. 8 years before Drek attacked there was the Mazu Seiuns. 7 years after Drek attacked there was three aliens named Xaevo, Yavier, and Zon who attacked Oltanis, only to be stopped by the warrior from the world, Tanor Zeta Faux, his sister Tana, and his father Miles all powerful heroes from the world.

In 7 years time, Oltanis healed from the destruction it faced and turned lighter and more serene. The residents of the planet all helped to restore their home. Still honing the dark grey world it is because of its wild weather.

Oltanis is a temperate planet, so it does not get very hot, or very cold. It maintains an Avg. Temperature under 85 Fahrenheit degrees at the tropics, and -150 Fahrenheit degrees at the poles.

Oltanis is 10x bigger than Earth. It has large storm clouds that tend to cover the planet’s surface. These storms happen every 6-8 years. Because of the frequency, Oltanian cities have lightning collectors that attracts lightning from the storms to power the entire planet.

A single bolt of lightning can rack up a few gigawatts. Imagine the Catatumbo Lightning phenomenon in Venezuela, imagine how much power it puts out, but multiply that by 1000x per sq. mile. That’s how effective this can be. Now that you know that, let me tell you about the special features.

Oltanis has 3 moons, Eunas, Untas, and Vulnas. They mean The Bird Moon, The Butter Moon and The Wise Moon, respectively. Oltanis has two stars, Alpha Heterus & Gamma Heterus which is much farther away, but can still see it on certain times of the day when the main star does not block it. Alpha Heterus is the third biggest star of the constellation. Heterus is short for Heterusia, and the constellation is the Moth Constellation.

Lanslome City is the home to one of the galaxy’s strongest heroes, Tanor Zeta Faux. He lives in the outskirts of the city near the mountain ranges that close off the peninsula to the rest of the continent. It is forested on his side, and a large mountainous desert on the others side. Gorda City is the largest city on Planet Oltanis, it spans an entire continent of the other pole. Captain Qwark is from Gorda City. He’s the other hero from Oltanis.

In conclusion, Oltanis is now guarded by the hero Tanor, as well as his father who is mayor of Lanslome City. Tanor is one of Ratchet’s friends who helped Ratchet beat Drek, and even helped in the Protopet Mission in the Bogon Galaxy.

As long as someone is watching over our galaxy, Oltanis will always be a beauty to see in the Spiraling Sea of Stars known as the Solana Galaxy. Between Ratchet, Tanor, Qwark, Miles Faux, Tana Faux, and Irona Ikira from Kerwan, evil will know to be cautious!

Sweetness! Love

I really like it! Oltanis looks quite the beauty it was before. Oltanis, my home. I thank you so much!
I like the moons and stuff too,. Some age progression with it's rotation and revolution. 12 years ago, it was on the other side, 12 years later, here it is. Hehe, that means it takes 24 years for a full revolution,  :P  6 years for each season. Which fits the 6-year storm pattern. 8 years for the equatorial storm pattern,. I love it when I discover truths in hindsight and after I've just thought it up randomly.

I wish I knew how to draw and stuff, or I'd do something for you. If I can manage it, I'll give you a good part or cameo in one of my main stories. ^^

Thank you :D I'm glad you like it

I tried to use some things from the previous Oltanis work that it looks new, but still resembles the old pic in a few ways, for example, some of the nebulae around the star are from the old work, and the star itself, new but still kind of the same ^^ also the background is similar, to give the feel that it's still the same planet, but rebuilt.

and btw, you said that Untas Orbits the equator and Vulnas the ecliptic plane of Oltanis, with a "normal" planet both things would be the same, so that it looks better, and isn't the same, I gave the planet an axial tilt of about 44 (about twice the amout of earth), that all three moons Orbit differently.

and a cameo sounds great, I love cameos XD

I see!! I like it. It's all part of the data thing I've been gathering about my home, x3. If I ever had a wiki of my series and stuff, this kind of data is nice. :P

Well then, I'll see what I can do about your cameo~ x3.
