This world is designated an Amber Zone with an environment, laws, customs, life forms, or other conditions make it dangerous to visitors. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lanth Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In addition to the City of Sonthert, the other major settlement on Sonthert is Ar.

Sonthert is interdicted both to protect its human population from interference, and to protect the rest of the Imperium from the megalomaniac "Emperor of All Things" and his armored knights, who have declared their intent to conquer the universe, starting with anyone foolish enough to land on Sonthert.
