History and background[edit]

Records from the Second Imperium show this world was host to a Scout Base.

Background Event: Comet Disaster of 642[edit]

Shammud is a backwater world of little significance. Once a minor agricultural exporter, a small comet fragment crashed into the planet in 642 devastating the biosphere. Thirty percent of the atmosphere and twenty percent of the standing water were blown into space by the impact. The remaining atmosphere was contaminated with dust, much of which remains. Half of the original 10,000 inhabitants died at the time of the impact or shortly after. Most of the remaining population was evacuated. The only remaining people are a few family which refused to leave.
