History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Torment has been under continuous Darrian control since before the Third Frontier War, even during periods when the other three Entopic Worlds where held by the Sword World Confederation. This is because Torment is populated entirely by incorrigible criminals that cannot exist in the tolerant Darrian society. Torment is governed by the criminals themselves, who must mine raw materials to trade for imported food. [2]

Torment is a prison planet for the most incorrigible of criminals, those whom Darrian psychologists have judged impossible to cure of violent tendencies. It is miserably cold and barren, consisting only of one central village of convicts. They are required to work in mining and industry to pay for the import of enough food to support them. The prison is run by a hierarchy of criminals who demand obedience from their fellow convicts. This obedience has little to do with law and order, as might be expected. They select their own successors before dying.
