The Campoleone system was home to at least one habitable world, Campoleone II, and as at 3145 was located in the Rim Commonality province of the Free Worlds League.[2][3]

System Description[edit]

The Campoleone system is located near the Astrokaszy and Negushevo systems[2][3] and consists of a class G2 primary orbited by at least two planets.[1]

System History[edit]

The Campoleone system settled during or shortly before the Age of War.[4]

Campoleone II - more commonly known simply as Campoleone - is the second planet in the Campoleone system and has a single moon named Lonely. Campoleone is a temperate but relatively cool world possessed of a certain harsh beauty.[1]

Planetary History[edit]

During the thirty-first century Campoleone was a poorly-developed world capable of supporting its own population, but little more. Campoleone had remained a poorly-developed world for centuries because of its location; poised on the border between the Free Worlds League and the Periphery, Campoleone was conisdered little more than a stop-over point for those traders and explorers heading into the Periphery and Deep Periphery, although it was a popular world for those retired spacers who appreciated its harsh beauty.[1]

This large population of retired spacers, combined with the trading and exploration route, made Campoleone's population one of the most well-informed storehouses of knowledge in the Free Worlds League. The spacers had seen much and traveled far. Campoleone was also the home of the Voidjumper's Memorial, a monument that honors the passengers and crew of lost League JumpShips. At its center was the "Angel of Campoleone" a myomer-kinetic sculpture that stood 20 meters high. Surrounding the sculpture were the keepsakes and reminders left by the families of the lost ships. By the mid-thirty-first century these mementos covered three acres on the peak of Mount Kenley-Maccan.[1]

The only export offered by the world was ginja wood, an exotic hardwood much like ebony, that was prized by craftsman across the Free Worlds League. Unfortunately efforts to grow this wood commercially had all failed to produce the high-quality product provided naturally.[1]
