  Given that Urth's core has solidified by Sev's time, the same would have 
happened to Verthandi and Skuld. They wouldn't have geothermal 
(urr...venothermal? marothermal?) plants. Barring their possession of 
technogical wizardry that's not present on Urth, their primary energy 
source would likewise be the darkened sun. They'd probably be pretty dismal 
places to live as well.

  Their mineral-richness or -poorness is arguable though. They may not have 
been as thoroughly mined.

  Another loony idea: what if Wolfe had tipped his hat to Arthur C Clarke 
and had the Hieros ignite Jupiter instead? Certainly seems easier than 
transporting a white fountain.
