  • Environmental conditions vary dramatically from place to place, with most settlement occuring within two narrow habitable zones.

Non-Canon: The world Easter (XAF7767-3) is notable astronomically because of its unusual shape, which vaguely resembles an egg. This was caused in the distant past by strong gravitational influences on the planet. The inhabitants of Easter live in the broad bands of territory located in the world’s temperate zones which have breathable atmosphere year round.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Easter is a high-population world located in Concord Subsector of the Solomani Rim. The system is a member of the Imperium and has been issued an Amber Zone travel advisory.

Easter was first colonized by the Vilani about -4800, and was later settled by large numbers of Terrans. Easter became the seat of the important Easter Concord, an interstellar union for mutual defense formed during the Long Night. Following the dissolution of the Concord, the planetary economy slumped into a long recession. The Solomani Party then took over the world government and began a systematic purge of all Vilani influences. The overthrow of the local Solomani Movement came only after a vicious civil war, with considerable suffering among the world’s civilian population.

Easter is a balkanized world still racked by international conflict.

Local Nobility[edit]

Undim, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of two members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
