Native Lifeform[edit]

There is a life-form known as shell-crabs which resemble large lobsters (30-40 inches in length). They seem to have a taste for electrical insulation, and can chew through almost anything given time. There is now a market for the shell-crab meat. [2]

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Originally named Igliim after the legendary Vilani sword of that name.[3]

The world, while part of the Sword Worlds Confederation, was left as a reserve. The Imperium occupied Steel and the other Metal Worlds in the course of the Fifth Frontier War. After the conclusion of the war, Steel was opened to colonization in 1115.
