Antioch is an agricultural world with a tainted atmosphere but still a near-ideal environment for producing foodstuffs. The system supports a population of tens of millions of sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Ushra Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Antioch, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the feifdoms of a baron and a marquis. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world. During the Long Night this world was named Kaaruumuug.
Astrography and planetology
Much of this world is extremely cold. This has made gathering of the Agadua crop extremely difficult. Most are gathered using remotely-piloted vehicles or (occasionally) by robots.
Antioch is also a rich source of raw materials for several Ushran industries and corporations who are the main employers on the planet. The mining is done within environmentally controlled domes.

History and background
During the First Imperium an artists’ enclave was established here. Although wiped out during the Long Night, the tradition has continued and Antioch ice sculptures are exhibited as far away as Terra (Solomani Rim 1827).
