Planet History[edit]

Strana Mechty is a planet in the Kerensky Cluster. Its name is Russian for "Dream Country" (Страна Мечты). It is considered an almost sacred world to the Clans. It was the site where Nicholas Kerensky and his band of 800 others managed to escape, fleeing the chaos of the Pentagon Worlds, which the Exodus Fleet first settled. Nicholas Kerensky founded the rigid social structure of the Clans on Strana Mechty and the world can be seen as the birthplace of the Clans. The world has an enclave for each Clan and the Hall of Khans, a place where the different Clans can meet to debate issues and appoint an ilKhan. Strana Mechty also contains a Gene Center that contains the genetic material of every Clan's Bloodnamed warriors as a back-up in case a Clan's Gene Center is destroyed.[1]
