Planetary Info[edit]

Glenmora has one large continent, Hades, and several large islands that circle the equator. Despite being covered by volcano fields, Hades is home to seventy percent of the population. The capital city is Tronka, but in the 3020's Glenmora's baron spent most of his time on a resort island named Cape Sarah attracting business to the planet's chemical factories and precious metal mining concerns. The people of Glenmora often possess a small independent streak, but had no problem capitalizing on the opportunities the baron provided.[47]

Militarily, the world is valued by training officers: Soldiers are sent to the training areas north of Tronka to perform land-navigation exercises. Hades' terrain often changes due to volcanic activity, requiring frequent map updates, and the skies are also often overcast, which makes using celestial navigation difficult (if not impossible). The planet's militia is highly skilled in adapting to these new terrain conditions, but new arrivals often find navigation difficult.[48]

Planetary History[edit]

First Succession War[edit]

Glenmora was invaded during the first half of the major invasion into the Federated Suns launched by the Draconis Combine in May 2787.[13]

Fourth Succession War[edit]

During the Fourth Succession War Glenmora was defended by Wolf's Dragoons Alpha Regiment and the Black Widow Company, facing the 5th Galedon Regulars. The Dragoons withdrew to Crossing to lure the DCMS into a conflict on that world.[49]
