Kleinwelt literally translates as "Small World" from German, but Kleinwelt should not be confused with Small World.

Planetary Info[edit]

Kleinwelt is located approximately 50 light-years rimward of the Magistracy of Canopus world of Thraxa[1], and located near Mondra and Schmitt and vanished from maps during the Succession Wars.[2][10][11] The planet was originally settled to take advantage of gold, uranium, and iridium.[1]

Unlike many former colonies of the Magistracy of Canopus the settlement survived the downfall of the Star League. Even during the Succession Wars Era the planet had a tiny population. The exact location of the system was lost during the centuries of war. The Magistracy had no interest to reestablish its former settlements and abandoned such worlds like Kleinwelt.[1]

A Marian vessel made a jump to the system in 3044. The slaves on board the ship started an uprising, which was successful. The surviving crew members navigated their DropShips to the planet. Kleinwelt was chosen by the leader of the revolt, Marcus, a former member of the Marian Legions. The exact circumstances after the landing of the slaves on the planet are unknown. An investigation by Interstellar Expedition in 3082 produced no results. Like the planetary capital the roots of the new cities are the landing zones of the DropShips. Marian Folly, the capital, is home for over ten thousand humans and provides its inhabitants with a basic industrial base. Marcus asked IE to keep the location of the system as an secret because they feared the wrath of their former owners. Their plan is to become a member of the Magistracy of Canopus in 3100.[1]
