History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Keltchner's name has several common variations, including Kelcher, Keltcher and Kletcher.

The planet is frequently used for the training of Imperial Army units. A permanent training cadre and "aggressor division" are based here (though not listed as part of the population). Imperial Army divisions pass through at regular intervals. The aggressor division maintains stocks of equipment similar to typical Zhodani, Sword Worlds and Aslan issue, and its soldiers are trained to simulate the fighting style of the major potential foes troops might encounter, as well as a more generic “insurgent/guerrilla force.” Training is of high quality and realism, and results in a few deaths each year.
