Windsor has a breathable, habitable atmosphere and a reasonable amount of surface water. The system supports a population in the hundreds of thousands of sophonts, lacking the industrial base to be completely self-supporting. The world has a climate with temperatures at the upper range of human endurance.  This world is a satellite of a gas giant or another planet in the system. It is a member of Third Imperium in the Glisten Subsector of Spinward Marches Sector and in the Domain of Deneb. Windsor, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estates of an Imperial knight and a baronet. Both are members of the Imperial Nobility charged with overseeing the world.

Astrography & Planetology[edit]

Windsor is a member of the Spinward Main.

Windsor orbits the gas giant Vintii, which is itself unusual in being very close to the system's primary, a K9 star. Vintii is itself almost a brown dwarf, and emits enough heat to give Windsor a hot climate.
