Planetary Info[edit]

Komephoros was settled by colonists looking to take advantage of the vast mineral resources they suspected were underneath the glaciers of this frozen world. The first wave of settlers vanished without a trace however, and their fate wasn't discovered until a decade passed and a new group of colonists arrived. These settlers discovered Luega del Condenado (The Lake of the Damned).[1]

Apparently the first colonists had settled in a valley located relatively close to an ocean. A rogue asteroid slammed into the ocean with enough force to send a tsunami into the river valley. The colonists might have survived in their DropShips, but Komephoros' three year winter struck shortly after and turned the new lake into a frozen block of ice that completely shrouded the ships. (Amazingly, the DropShip's distress beacons were operating under the ice, which led the second wave of colonists to the location of the lost valley.) The destroyed valley is left to its own devices; The nearest modern settlement is 300 kilometers away.[1]

During the Succession Wars the world traded hands between the Lyran Commonwealth and Draconis Combine a few times, but it was spared the most violent conflicts. Even the Jihad had little effect on it. As a result its mining industries were intact when Komephoros joined the Republic of the Sphere.[1]
