It is a member of Third Imperium in the Old Suns Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Lancian Cultural Region and the Domain of Vland. Amnuus, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight, a member of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.   During the Long Night this world was named Guunush.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Amnuus is a member of the Gvadh Cluster.

Amnuus is a large world with temperatures that Humans find close to ideal. Almost the entire planet is covered in shallow oceans composed of liquid water and ice, but the atmosphere (otherwise standard) contains small traces of ammonia. While the air is breathable for short periods it can prove lethal for longer exposures.

History and background[edit]

The inhabitants of Amnuus are largely descended from Vilani colonists, although there are a few Lancians and even some S'mrii. The dominant religion on Amnuus holds that the eldest child of a family must be named by a stranger. The stranger, if obviously wealthy, is then expected to contribute annually towards the upkeep and education of the child. Being asked to name a child is considered a great honour; refusal is generally not accepted by the father’s family and may lead to a duel.
