Kadgishbur is a desert world with a thin tainted atmosphere. The system supports a population of fewer than 10,000 sophonts. The world has a cold, though still habitable, climate at the lower limits of human comfort. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Old Suns Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector and in the Domain of Vland. Kadgishbur, 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. During the Long Night this world was named Uurim.

Astrography and planetology[edit]

Kadgishbur is a member of the Gvadh Cluster.

Kadgishbur is a beautiful ice-covered world. This vast expanse of frozen tundra derives its unique blue coloration from the pollen of snow lilies which grow only in the short spring. The pollen is carried upon the winds and settles across the terrain in beautiful kilometre-wide spirals.

Kadgishbur has a large supply of water underground, up to two kilometres deep in places. Every few standard years, as the planet enters its spring season, the system’s primary causes minor earthquakes which cause water to seep to the surface and activate the Kadgishbur causing a sudden burst of colour over the desert. Most native life forms on Kadgishbur are capable of recycling their own bodily fluids enabling them to go without water for years.

Native Lifeforms[edit]

Many beasts including the Laqua and Remaun come here to graze on the fillies and lap up the plants' nutritious pollen. This in turn attracts the Frost Weres that slaughter the herbivores in their thousands. From this is derived the common saying “as enticing as Kadgishbur pollen and just as deadly”.
