++++Planetary Information++++ Description: Having only one city, the remainder of the planet is given over to vast estates known as fiefs. Each fief is used for whatever diversion the owners wish, from cultivating rare vintages to hunting exotic creatures. Fiefs located on Quaddis are the absolute realm of their owners and, within they are subject to only their own laws with many owners claiming “what the Emperor does not know, will not hurt him.”
Quaddis’ star system is also unusual in two ways. The first being the strange and erratic orbits of it’s many small planets, which lead in turn to many strange and unpredictable tidal forces and cosmological phenomena (of which the “Grand Conjunction” is the best known). The second is the way in which the system is almost totally alone in its volume of space, far from other inhabited systems, unattended by trade routes, and not appearing on many star charts.
