Plunge is a poor, industrial, high-population desert hellworld, with a billion or more sophonts struggling to survive in a inhospitable environment.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

The name Plunge was given not in honor of this world's oceans (it has none), but because it stands at the head of the great Ushamla Main that spreads commerce coreward of the Great Rift.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Many of the planet's eight billion people live in tunnels hollowed into the planet's crust.

  • Trade has brought great wealth to Plunge, and the businessman are the leaders of the government.
  • Their powers are dictatorial, but they have the respect of their underlings.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Plunge, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.
