History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In the Regency era, the world is known as Chantrel.

The population is all farmers, who have set up a collection of small farmsteads along the coast of the northern continent. The rest of the world remains unexplored, with jungles and mountains that teem with life. A set of ruins was discovered in the southern mountains, but as yet neither age nor origin has been discovered.[2]

The Consulate has transferred all "incurably insane" Zhodani from Cronor to Cantrel and Rasatt (Spinward Marches 0607). Currently, the worlds are ruled as "wards of the state" by Consulate appointed governors, but are exploring the possibilities of self-rule. These worlds are all classified as Amber Zones by the Consulate, because of the danger presented by their unstable occupants. Despite that, the Consulate does not wish to fully interdict the worlds, instead hoping that continued interstellar contact with Zhodani culture at large will allow them to eventually recover.[3]
