Auldrant is a pretty interesting world in that it's probably the only non-science fiction planet to have actual details about its orbital period. We know from the information in Daath's library that a year on Auldrant is 765 days, which is twice as long than a year on Earth (365 days). However, there is a problem with this. In order for Auldrant's year to be that long, the planet would have to be much farther out from its star than Earth is from our Sun (assuming Auldrant shares the same distance of 1 AU[[note]]Astronomical Unit[[/note]]). By calculating and measuring the amount of time it would take for Auldrant to complete one orbit, its determined distance would be about 1.87 AU, which would put Auldrant in between the orbit of Mars and the Asteroid Belt. At this distance, Auldrant would be far too cold to even sustain life, but that's assuming that the star it orbits around (Rem) is a G-type star like our Sun. If the star is a hotter and more luminous F-type instead (making its habitable zone more spread out at a farther distance), then it's entirely possible for Auldrant to remain habitable and still keep its long year.

** The Zao Desert was supposedly much more fertile than it is now. What are Dwarf Fortress dwarves really good at? Why, [[{{Boatmurdered}} tuning otherwise habitable places into inhospitable wastelands]].

** Considering their longer years and most likely extended/slowed down aging (as noted in another WMG below) compared to our world, not unlikely they "evolve" to the point they are elves.

This explains why Mieu was so pleased when Luke gave him the "name" Thing. He mentions in two skits ("Mieu's Name" and "Luke Overdoing Things") that he's pleased to have the name, and considers it a good name. Mieu is, aafter all, the word they say to communicate.

Or at least, something very much like nukes. In one of the group's visits to Peony's palace, Jade makes a throwaway comment about a fonic bomb, to which Peony responds with an uncharacteristic DudeNotFunny. Recall that fonons are Auldrant's versions of atoms, in that they make up everything. Thus, a fonic bomb would be Auldrant's analogue of an atomic bomb.
* Actually, they have both; there are several times when fonons and atoms are mentioned in the same breath. Not that this changes the possibility of fonic bombs.
