Centry has a tainted unbreathably thin atmosphere and very little surface water. The system has a population between 10,000 and 10 million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Glisten Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Centry, 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.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Centry is located in the Ffudn Cluster.

Centry has a cool climate, with the atmosphere tainted by fungal spores.

The surface is wracked by extensive and violent volcanic activity, which throws up valuable minerals but makes life very hazardous for the inhabitants. The smoking volcanic craters of Centry are heavily colonized by vast forests of fungi, whose spores form clouds thick enough to form low-lying weather patterns. These fungi are harvested for use in the chemical industry, but present a hazard to human lungs.[2]

Century has indigenous race, referred to as the Crachi. The Crachi are on a similar evolutionary level to the smaller apes of Terra. They are built low to the ground and possess eight limbs like a crab. Their heavy carapace and shell protect them from the worst of Centry’s climate. Trained Crachi are used by the humans of the world to assist in harvesting fungi.[2]
