Anselhome has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. It is a member of Sword Worlds Confederation in the Querion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Sword Worlds.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

The mainworld is a large planet orbiting the system's only gas giant. Its wealth of ores attracted colonists who hollowed living quarters into the rock. Some of the atmosphere for the underground habitats is processed from the gasses put out by Anselhome's volcanoes.

Anselhome is a member of the Spinward Main.
