Sheffield is an agricultural, nonindustrial, pre-rich garden world with a near-ideal, utopian environment conducive to most sophonts, but still lacks an adequate population to expand its economy to a rich status.

  • As an agricultural world, this world is a near-ideal environment for producing quality foodstuffs of plant, animal, and other forms. Quality foodstuffs are a major export commodity for this world.
  • It requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. Having to import most manufactured and high tech goods drives the price up for these items at this world.
  • Its economy and population are rapidly growing and living conditions are expected to quickly rise barring outside forces.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Nightrim Subsector of Reaver's Deep Sector in the Domain of Ilelish.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Sheffield has become an Imperial defence forces retirement world.

  • It is a pleasant, tropical island world, with each island governing themselves.
  • Each island tends to be specific to one branch of the defence forces and personnel retire from the many military bases in Nightrim and adjacent subsectors.
  • Although each island is fiercely protective of their independence of the other islands there is never any conflicts between islands, except every two years when the interforces games occur.
  • During this two week long period, bones have been known to be broken.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Sheffield, 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.
