Dentus, world on the edge


Dentus, Regina Subsector, Spinward Marches 2201

Dentus has a population of approximately 9,850,000 sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This is a temperate world, with a climate of average temperatures. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Regina Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Dentus, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling Scout Service starships and personnel. The world has a tainted atmosphere due to the volcanic activity. There is a minor race here known as the Racconid who make up approximately 89% of the population.

The Aslan

Kiiayorl and Alekyhaiori are bases for several Aslan marine units currently serving with the Imperial Navy. There is extensive training and supply infrastructure as well as villages for dependants. Currently the facility supports a Brigade of mechanised infantry, approximately 2800 plus dependants. At anyone time there are one or two battalions on rest and refit here.


Donovans is a religious community run by the Church of the Holy Hand. They believe that the preserved hand they have in their cathedral is the hand of Saint Donovan, patron saint of the poor and dispossessed in the New Catholic Church. The community is open to anyone who wishes to stay there however they must relinquish all worldly goods.

The Volcanoes

Mount Stellin and Mount Carrington are active volcanoes that have been spewing poisonous gasses into the atmosphere for millennia leaving the planet with a permeant taint. Most sophonts will have to wear masks or be modified to breathe the air for an extended time frame.

Frostbite Mining Outpost

Frostbite is a remote mining operation run by Northern Metals PLC. The climate is brutal with temperatures never above freezing. Minerals are refined on site and transported to orbit by mass driver to be picked up by bulk hauler.

High Range

High Range is a high-tech mercenary training facility specialising in counter insurgency and close protection. The facility stretches across most of North Dangar and has live fire ranges for training with various weaponry. High Range is contracted to provide entrance courses for several elite units.

Vargyr Refugees

Dentus is home to a variable population of Vargyr refugees that have settled the Ragar Islands, currently there are around one hundred thousand set up in small villages along the coastline. Living conditions are rough but several Vargyr and Imperial charities are delivering supplies.

There are many ex soldiers who have fought on the wrong side in one of the many Vargyr conflicts and some of those conflicts have arrived on Dentus as well. There has been several interventions from the IISS into spats between rival Vargyr clans that haven’t amounted to much but do have the humans on the planet concerned about the safety of the rest of the Vargyr attempting to survive under difficult circumstances.

The Racconid

The Racconid are a minor race with colouring and body shape like terran Raccoons. They live across the planet in villages based around clans or extended family units, they are roughly tech level 10 but vary immensely. Racconind average about 1.5 meters tall and are extremely strong due to the gravity on Dentus. Their curiosity as a race has seen large numbers leave the planet to make their fortune amongst the stars.

They are particularly hostile to Vargyr and native Racconid do not like intruders into their village life, an invite is always necessary. Their natural curiosity and strength have seen many become engineers or mechanics off world, they have a reputation as excellent problem solvers but their interpersonal skills with other sophists are sometimes lacking in subtlety.  

Scattered Settlements

There are many scattered settlements with anything from one to two hundred people across the planet, these range from farmers to fanatics and everything in between. Most of these are reluctant at best when it comes to visitors. Travellers are advised to approach with caution.

Rule System(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
