History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Kandom is a high-population Imperial garden world located in Alurza Subsector of Diaspora Sector.

  • The world is the subsector capital.

Imperial High (Landed) Nobility[edit]

Kandom, as a member world of the Third Imperium, holds the estate of three members of the Imperial Nobility, who are charged with overseeing the world.

History-Era: Rebellion[edit]

Kandom is divided by a succession war. This war is being waged between the planetary government and ex-Duke Geraldo who was also one of the major players in the earlier succession wars on Backman. The nations which eventually established the Vassalry Judiciate forced Geraldo and his forces to abandon the Backman system and flee to Kandom, where they continue their fight.

  • Although officially an outlaw, Duke Prester Geraldo has many sympathizers among the poor and middle classes of Kandom. He is also receiving support from two companies of grav-belted infantry from the Union of Sufren. Although he and his forces remain in hiding and have trouble getting adequate equipment and supplies, his bid for control of this system, and the subsector, is far from over.
