History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Fafhrd, formerly known as Umra (Anglic: Umra), is a poor, non-agricultural hellworld located in Esperance Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Fafhrd was once a prosperous and densely populated world, but a civil war in 500 led to the destruction of most of the planet’s city-domes. Many fled into the planet’s wastelands, surviving in caravans of powered vehicles, struggling heroically to obtain water and breathable air. These survivors became nomads, developing a profound mistrust of industrialization and high technology.
