Mowanda is a nonindustrial vacuum world, which warrants hazardous environment precautions.

  • Life in a vacuum requires great discipline. After all, it only takes one forgotten seal on a vacuum suit to spell death. Those who survive tend to be very methodically-minded and attentive to small detail.
  • As a nonindustrial world, it requires extensive imports of outside technology to maintain a modern, star-faring society. The need to import most manufactured and high technology goods drives the price of these goods up in the open market.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Khouth Subsector of Corridor Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • This world has a nearby Imperial Naval Base, capable of handling warships.
  • It also contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling IISS starships and personnel.
  • During the Long Night this world was named Arga.

History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

Another important Imperial Navy base that fell to the Vargr. Mowanda trained most of the sector's Marines, and the Irrgh Manifest acquired a significant arsenal of weaponry and ordnance after they captured the world.

History-Era: New Era[edit]

Unlike most Manifest worlds, the local governor actually heeded the advance warning of Virus, and evacuated the population to Drayne (Corridor 0910). Drayne sent an expedition in 1190 to reclaim the world and assess damage, and has slowly repaired the facility in anticipation of the Regency returning to Corridor.
