History and background[edit]

A small trade port, known as "Death and Glory", is the only permanent population on the surface.

Lumnu had been a prosperous colony during the First Imperium and throughout the Long Night. In –477 the Aakhri conquered the system and enslaved its people. Thousands of Lumnu were sent back to Argi to become bondsmen. A ruling class of Aakhri ruled over the planet for hundreds of years until finally overthrown by a slave revolt. In -10 Lumnu declared itself a free planet once more only the Imperium to arrive in 40 and subjugate the planet again.

The population began to die of a mysterious plague in 366 which caused severe physical mutation. The planet was quarantined. It was discovered that victims removed from the planet stopped mutating (though they were unable to be cured) and appeared to no longer carry any traces of the plague.

In 369 the decision was made to evacuate the planet completely. Scientists are still unable to find a reason for Lumnuan Plague though it appears to be still active on the surface. Today, various salvage companies risk the surface in full body armour salvaging items from the old cities.
