Era: New Era

Mjolnir is a poor, desert world, having both a thin atmosphere and lacking any surface water that makes habitation by sophonts difficult. The system supports a small stable population, but lacks the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Regency of Deneb in the Sword Worlds Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector.


  • It was originally named Haulteclaire.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Mjolnir orbits a much larger rocky body named Niflheim. Niflhiem is a massive world shrouded in clouds. Automatic probes and most manned expeditions all fail to return from voyages into the atmosphere so little is known about the world.

Binary Solar System[edit]

Mjolnir Binary Star System
Star Name Hierarchy Color Classification Notes
"Oliver" Primary White A5 V
"Closamont" Secondary Yellow G0 V


Mjolnir's system has two stars, the primary Oliver and its companion, Closamont. Mjolnir orbits Oliver at a distance of 0.06 AU. Mjolnir has vast dust seas, and its surface has been repeatedly pounded by meteorites.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The planet's major resource is its vast oil pools, and mining of these pools is Mjolnir's primary industry. A devastating earthquake on 126-1044 destroyed Mjolnir's capital, Midhvolf, and reduced the planet's population by 75%. Midhvolf has not been rebuilt, and the new capital has been established at Uttonat Omrade. Mjolnir's starport is Armundshaven, which is also the world's commercial center.

Mjolnir was originally named Haulteclaire, and has been largely overlooked and under-populated throughout the history of the Sword Worlds.
