Native Lifeforms

The importance of Gadden is not readily apparent, and is not widely known.

  • The local ecology has produced several strains of green plant which provide the psychochemicals used in the production of combat drug.
  • As would be expected, the plants in the wild merely provide base chemicals which must be further refined.
  • In addition, it is not clear that the drugs themselves are superior to those currently in distribution throughout the Imperium.

History & Background (Dossier)

'Gadden is a low-population Imperial world located in Harlequin Subsector of the Solomani Rim.

Although Gadden is listed as the major world in the system, it has a population numbering less than a thousand, and no formal government or law level.

  • Local technology is virtually all imported and hovers at relatively low levels.
  • The small population of Gadden is devoted to a small mining camp exploiting some rich and easily processed veins of simple metals.
  • Most of the world's surface is unexplored.
