Craw has a population between 10,000 and 10 million sophonts, 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. Craw, 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. This is the homeworld of the Crawni, a Minor Race. 80% of the world's population is the Major Race Aslan.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Craw is a member of the Spinward Main. Craw lies on the Glisten Arm.

Craw is a medium sized world with a roughly earthlike gravity and a standard density, oxygen poor atmosphere. The planet is hot and arid, with a narrow habitable zone circling a small polar sea; beyond that zone lies a variety of unpleasant terrain, including desert, badlands, and other uninviting real estate that humans will find less than accommodating.

The atmospheric taint is from radioactive dust blown out of several of the large deserts. The source of the radiation is theorized to have come from a series of nuclear explosions, though no precise studies of the cause has ever been undertaken.
