Frey supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Gadde Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Frey, 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. 90% of the world's population is the Minor Race Chirper. During the Long Night this world was named Arla Iir.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Frey is believed to be the largest tomb in charted space. For thousands of years the wealthy of literally hundreds of races have come great distances in order to be buried in the natural catacombs deep beneath the surface.

The majority of the living inhabitants on Frey are Chirpers who live on the margins of the rainforests. The rest of the population consists of a very small human community surrounding the starport at Odine, pandering to the tourists and researchers. The make a healthy living selling excursions and essential items at inflated prices.

History and background[edit]

Records from the First Imperium show that this world was inhabited by Chirpers.

The Chirpers jealously guard the world's well known underground tombs. For this reason their slightly more intelligent 'priest-caste' have become known as the "Keepers," who's apparent sole function in life seem to be to 'protect' the tombs and mausoleums. The Keepers have been willing to allow additional burials to be carried out, but instinctively attack anyone whom attempts to steal from the mausoleums. No-one is sure how the Keepers know when a thieft has been attempted, but their reaction is generally swift and almost always fatal, often spilling over against the local inhabitants of Odine.

In recent years the number of sophonts wishing to be buried on Frey has dropped off and the planetary governor has been inundated with requests by Archaeologists to excavate the earliest tombs. So far, Governor Marcellus has refused, as he has been unable to find a way to keep the Keepers away from the excavations short of complete racial genocide. Unfortunately there is increased political pressure by the Third Imperium to at least allow the tombs to be examined.

Currently visitors to the planet are restricted to the surface tombs around Port Fey, which are relatively safe from Keeper attack. However, because many believe the catacombs to be treasure houses of immense wealth and artefacts, the Keepers are in permanent conflict. To prevent the violence escalating, Governor Marcellus has vowed to remain constantly vigilant against the increasing number of tomb robbers that attempt to break in and, each year about twenty offenders are publicly executed (by stoning) for the crime of tomb robbing in the hope of deterring others.
