Notes[edit]

  • Juniper was first identified in 2016 with the publication of the First Succession War sourcebook. Other than the location of the planet on the map (p. 50), the brief description of the main settlement and its destruction (p. 62), and the world's relative importance (p. 122), no other information was provided regarding the planet or the system. It has not been identified or referenced since.
