This world almost tidally locked. It rotates once every 35 standard days while the world orbits its star, Crom, every 46.7 days. This results in the nights on Cimmeria being extremely cold.

History and background[edit]

The population, mostly composed of Scandinavians, has remained within the original five settlements, each of which has become an independent state. Because of politically motivated aggression between the settlements conflict and war has become a permanent feature of Cimmerian life. To prevent disaster befalling the settlements such conflicts have become ritualized in style and are fought on Sonya, one of the outer worlds, to prevent civilian casualties. These wars are holovised and the winning "teams", volunteers all, are treated as local celebrities.
