History and background
Bechant had initially been colonized by German-speaking Solomnai but during the Long Night the colonists were completely massacred by the arriving M'nengi colony ship. The M'nengi hordes took over the remnants of the colony as their City of Kings while the rest of the M'nengi hordes had to build their own primitive cities amidst the dunes.
Today their asteroid ship is in permanent orbit around the planet as its moon "Giaani M'n". After the last uprising the M'nengi were forced out of the ruins of the human settlement, which was rebuilt as an Imperial Marine stronghold. This is now an active free port though visitors are reminded that a visit outside to the M'nengi is extremely dangerous given their violent and cannibalistic nature.
