Gungnir is an agricultural world with a tainted atmosphere but still a near-ideal environment for producing foodstuffs. The system supports a population of tens of millions of sophonts. It is a member of Sword Worlds Confederation in the Sword Worlds Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Sword Worlds. This world hosts a Sword Worlds Military Base for support of military ground forces.
Astrography & Planetology
Gungnir is a member of the Spinward Main.
Gungnir is a small planet, and its surface is divided into correspondingly few continental plates. The largest one circles the equator of the planet like a girdle, and be came “locked up” early on as small Gungnir cooled. This has prevented the oceanic plates at each pole from mixing.

History & Background (Dossier)
Gungnir has been described as "the Sword Worlds in microcosm." Gungnir is a fractious agricultural world populated by fiercely proud and independent cattle ranchers and grain farmers. The many feudal nobles of Gungnir skirmish among themselves and occasionally produce a would-be king.
