Akeir was the heart of the Imperium of Man and the permanent residence of the line of Al’Eld (the rulers of the Imperium). It was also the home world of House Cormac and the Church. Aekir was temperate and mild and best known for its vast mega city of the same name. Since the announced death of Empress Gheverie Al’Eld in the year 161 AGW, Akeir saw much strife as the Houses erupted into civil disputes before calming in the face of the machine war.
Atira was known for its beautiful mountains and fjords. It was a cold planet, but not unpleasant, and the home world of House Kree, the foremost scholars in the Empire. Many of the House evacuated to destinations unknown in light of the civil conflicts (to which they remained neutral), as well as the machine invasion. It was later discovered they went to Eclipse to establish the Kree Archive.
Jord was once the home to House Juntach’s renowned swordsmen. It was primarily an arid planet, but did have many lush river valleys as well. In the year 162 AGW, Jord was destroyed by one of the Thinking Machines aptly named World Destroyers; a weapon of impossible magnitude which reduced the surface of the planet to rubble and uninhabitable rock.
Kala was a cold and uninviting planet, though starkly beautiful. House Fi’grim made their home here, finding their warrior nature a suitable fit to its frigid severity. Many of the former residents of the planets Jord and Ottar began living there in refugee camps when the invasion of the Thinking Machines began. In the civil conflicts of 161 AGW, House Fi’Grim joined Huron and Weilok to form the entity known as Cerberus.
House Vinro’s former home world is mild and temperate. Their massive city was matched only by the great city of Akeir. Ottar came under much scrutiny in light of the Verus Al’Eld scandal in which an acolyte of the church on Ottar was proclaimed the blood of Al’Eld under false pretenses. The matter was resolved with the unexpected death of Verus. In the year 163 AGW, Ottar was made uninhabitable by one of the Thinking Machines flying battleships.
Temperate and mild, Spentha was the home world of House Weilok. It was the origin of the most innovative of cybernetic and technological developments. In the civil conflicts of 161 AGW, House Weilok sided with Huron and Fi’Grim to form the entity known as Cerberus. Many of Tokpela’s refugees chose to go to Spentha in light of House Weilok’s aptitude in the fields of medical science.
The home world of House Huron was a tropical paradise primarily made up of water. It was commonly called the “Island Planet” for its many small and beautiful isles. In the civil conflicts of 161 AGW, House Huron sided with Weilok and Fi’Grim to form the entity known as Cerberus. In 163 AGW, Taiowa began evacuations to Spentha, Kala, and Eclipse in an effort to minimize machine war casualties.
Once known for its vast, dark forests and jungles, Tokpa was home to House Svarog. The planet’s largest export was in mechanical engineering with a strong focus on munitions at the start of the machine conflict. As it was the home of the Imperium’s best engineers, the cities there had no comparison as they nestled among the boughs. The whirr of central air was its own birdsong on this advanced planet.
House Eioph, renowned surgeons of the Empire, once made their home in the underground cities of Tokpela. The surface of the planet was comprised of dry and unforgiving deserts. In the year 162 AGW, Tokpela was evacuated in the face of impending robot invasion. Many of the refugees went to Spentha to join with House Weilok in preparing medical supplies for the war.
