History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Saurus is yet another agricultural planet with a garden world environment. With a relatively small population of approximately 800,000, the world has not been deeply penetrated by humanity, and much of its surface and native species remain a mystery. The lower technology and population limits the local manufacture of vehicles and exploitation of fossil fuels.

Within the Sword Worlds this world is known as Dainslaf.

During the Fifth Frontier War, Saurus was subject to incursions from the Gram Fleet as part of the Sword Worlds Campaign. On 014-1108 the Imperial Admiralty officially declared the system to be a combat zone.
