Farpoint
SA8A1C-E Ic Lo Ni

This world was first settled in the late 800s by a Duke who had disgraced himself in the Imperial Court. Determined to make the best of it, he decided to make Farpoint the natural diplomatic haven between the Imperium and the Zhodani Consulate in the Foreven Sector.

With an iron hand and stern laws, he created the current headquarters for Foreven School of Diplomacy which graduates a less than a hundred each year. The brutal weather conditions and tough discipline makes this school, not a favorite amongst members of the soft nobility. However, diplomats who have graduated from this school find positions in the highest levels of the Imperial Diplomatic Corps very quickly.

Recently, the Baron has overseen the slow introduction of tourism to planet, mainly skiing, ice boating across the frozen oceans of the planet.

The world is a satellite of a Brown Dwarf and despite its small size, it is geological active with several large masses replete with mountain ranges in the polar regions.
