Darkmoon is a high-population world with a billion or more sophonts in population size.

Description (Planetology)[edit]

The Darkmoon System lies in the Naadi Subsector of the Corridor Sector that connects the Spinward Marches to the core worlds of the Third Imperium.

  • Lying off the beaten track, the main world is Tsenjia, a low population water world with little in the way of indigenous life forms, which has been stocked with Terran sea life.
  • For much of its Imperial history, the system has been home to a Naval base on Darkmoon, a moon orbiting the outermost gas giant.
  • Darkmoon is also a water world, but one that is trapped beneath a thick layer of ice and kept in liquid form by the tidal effect of the gas giant.

Point of Interest: Terraforming Project[edit]

The Ministry of Colonization approved of plans to seed Tsenjia in the Darkmoon (Corridor 2111) system with Terran-derived organisms in 447.

  • By 695, imported fish stocks on Tsenjia in the Darkmoon (Corridor 2111) system reached an exploitable level. A modest export trade begins. Almost all higher native species are extinct by this time.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The base was actually home to the System Defense Boat and Space-Submarine Warfare School, devoted to training in the tactics and methods necessary to assault and defend water worlds (specifically against System Defence Boats operating from under the sea).

  • Yet when the base was closed in 902, life on Tsenjia declined, including a drop in the system's tech level from TL9 to TL7.
  • Fortunately since 1105, life has improved in economic terms for the seven million inhabitants of Tsenjia, after the mega-corporation, SuSAG, opened the Darkmoon Imperial Prison for over three thousand inmates.
  • The medium and maximum security TL12 facility, lies on the floor of Darkmoon's ocean, making escape rather difficult.
  • Of course, inmates are expected to work while they serve out their sentence and the corporation gives them two choices.
  • The first is as test subjects for SuSAG's biochemical research division, and the second is as part their underwater salvage program.

Local Nobility[edit]

Darkmoon, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
