Tenalphi is an agricultural world with a tainted atmosphere but still a near-ideal environment for producing foodstuffs. The system supports a population of tens of millions of sophonts. This world contains an archaeological site with artifacts suspected to be from the now-vanished Ancients. This is a high technology world with available technology over the standards for Charted Space.  The world is tropical with a hot, though still habitable, climate at the upper limits of human comfort. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Lunion Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Tenalphi, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of an Imperial knight and the fiefdoms of a baron and a marquis. All three are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Tenalphi was settled in -126 by Sword Worlders from the Sacnoth Dominate and named Dragvendel. It was isolated during the War of the First Rebellion and lost much of its infrastructure and technology during the Fimbulwinter. In 39 the Trailing Assembly established a small penal colony on Dragvendel and began dumping political dissidents there.

The world declared its independence in conjunction with the establishment of the Triple Dominion in 104 and was allowed to get away with this because Dyrnwyn regarded it as worthless. During the 2nd Century, immigrants from both the Imperium and the Sword Worlds settled on Dragvendel and lived in relative harmony. However, during the 3rd Century, territorial disagreements caused friction between various settlements; border disputes occasionally escalated into violence. In 338 a constitutional convention was held and a world government formed. At the same time the name of the world was changed to Tenalphi. The world petitioned to join the Imperium in 369 and became a member in 379. [2]
