History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Neumann is a heavily industrialized, high-population Imperial world located in the Gazulin Subsector of the Trojan Reach.

  • At 10 billion, it has the highest population in the subsector and along with Gazulin is one of the two most important worlds in the subsector.
  • The system contains a Naval Base.

The Neumann system was settled by transhumanist Terrans who made extensive use of cybernetics, nanotechnology and artificial intelligence.

  • The colony developed rapidly through use of self-replicating robots and powerful AI.
  • However, the planet was nearly destroyed when a self-replicating swarm or ‘grey goo’ was released.
  • Within days the rogue swarm had devoured much of the Neumann civilization before researchers halted the advance by releasing even more self-replicating swarms.
  • The new swarms were programmed to demolish the old swarms but replicated themselves at a much slower rate.

In the wake of this devastation a new religious cult, the Shield Church, assumed absolute rule of the planet. Today, more than a third of the surface is ‘swarm zone’, where different evolving breeds of nanotech fight. Visits to the swarm zone are illegal without Shield Church permission. The Church strictly controls the introduction of new technology on Neumann.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

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