Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Hofud is a member of the Spinward Main.

Most people on Hofud live on the larger of the two continents, Ofrein. The smaller continent, Baaten, is far less populated, with only 60 million people to Ofrein's 520 million. Hofud has at least 11 small moons and a dust ring, an unusual number for a world smaller than a gas giant.
