D'Ganzio has both a thin tainted atmosphere and no surface water which makes habitation by sophonts difficult. The system has a population between 10,000 and a million, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lanth Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. D'Ganzio, 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 world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

D'Ganzio is controlled by the Instellarms corporation, and the main world acts as a regional depot and support base for Instellarms' operations in the sector. The Highport serves as a hiring hall for mercenary units and individuals, and the administrative complex has an extensive contracts section and several banking establishments ready to issue repatriation bonds.

During the Fifth Frontier War D'Ganzio was attacked by the Sword Worlds' Gram Fleet.

Other Data[edit]

D'Ganzio is also the home address for thousands of independent armorers, bio-sculptors, medical services, and R&R centers. No fewer than eleven spinworlds orbit D’Ganzio, ranging in population from a few thousand (Mediquik, Little Vegas), to over one hundred thousand (Instellarms Fields). The tech Level of 10 only applies to locally produced items. All of the medical technology is Level 12, minimum, and arms of TL 12 are often available.

In addition to D’Ganzio, there are other settlements in the system, mostly small independent volatiles producers. Most have populations in the hundreds, with the notable exception being Flax, a satellite of Nlyn, the inner gas giant.
