Lau is a poor, pre-industrial hellworld with a population struggling to survive in an inhospitable environment.

  • Hellworlds often offer daily, and sometimes even hourly, life-threatening situations to their inhabitants.
  • This world would like to become a major industrial powerhouse in the subsector, but lacks the population and resources to build an adequate workforce and industrial business sector.
  • It is a member of the Third Imperium in the Shallows Subsector of Dagudashaag Sector in the Domain of Vland.
  • This world contains an Imperial Scout Base, capable of handling IISS starships and personnel.
  • During the Long Night this world was named Meuun.
