Planetary Info[edit]

Vanra is the personal landhold of the Orloff family. The Orloffs have controlled the Grand Duchy of Orloff since it was created. As their personal planet, the Orloff's have established most of the Duchy's most important monuments and traditions on the world. One key example is the Chapter House of the Order of the Saber. This building, one of four key locations of the Order, is the first among equals of the Order's chapter houses. For many years rumors of Star League era technology and secret rituals surrounded this building. To dispel some of these rumors the Order opened the doors to the house to the general public in the late 3060s.[1]

Vanrians of the "upper crust" are very concerned with matters of honor and "proper" behavior. Transgressors who violate these rules can find themselves involved in a saber duel. (Though officially forbidden, the authorities turn a blind eye to this practice and stay out of the local parks at dusk and dawn. Tradition demands the presence of a doctor at these duels, and the duelists' seconds may act to ensure the life of their principal.) Many nobles from Vanra have scars, the result of these unacknowledged duels. The Vanrian nobility's other major pastime is hunting. Mounted on horseback or tabi, hunters pursue wolves and boars over Vanra's soil. These hunts are not popular with everyone however, and saboteurs who ruin the hunts are not unheard of.

The average citizen of Vanra is a quiet, hard-working individual determined to make the planet great despite the behavior of the nobility. This determination has paid off in an economy that is largely self-sufficient, with only luxury goods imported. Vanra's second-largest industry (after military officers) is fashion. Vanran design, fashion, and tailoring are the League's standard for quality and style.[1]
