History & Background (Dossier)
Tenalphi was settled in -126 by Sword Worlders from the Sacnoth Dominate and named Dragvendel. It was isolated during the War of the First Rebellion and lost much of its infrastructure and technology during the Fimbulwinter. In 39 the Trailing Assembly established a small penal colony on Dragvendel and began dumping political dissidents there.
The world declared its independence in conjunction with the establishment of the Triple Dominion in 104 and was allowed to get away with this because Dyrnwyn regarded it as worthless. During the 2nd Century, immigrants from both the Imperium and the Sword Worlds settled on Dragvendel and lived in relative harmony. However, during the 3rd Century, territorial disagreements caused friction between various settlements; border disputes occasionally escalated into violence. In 338 a constitutional convention was held and a world government formed. At the same time the name of the world was changed to Tenalphi. The world petitioned to join the Imperium in 369 and became a member in 379.
