Lacking in significant resources or strategic value, the warm, oppressive world of Carnwath was never
and colonization, Carnwath was the center of a minor—and very brief—alien scare when its first settlers
described what appeared to be the remains of an ancient civilization, complete with the remains of a strange
species of bipedal creatures. At the crux of this discovery were several mysterious formations that resembled
vaguely humanoid faces, reminiscent of the figures on Terra’s Easter Island, ringing a central cluster of five jagged,
pyramidal structures that actually gave off radioactive readings. Archaeologists were dispatched to Carnwath
almost immediately, and studied the “alien structures” for less than six months before concluding that they were a
peculiarity of native processes of wind and water erosion that had exposed evidence from a long-ago asteroid
strike on the planet’s northern continent of Wartholi. The meteor, evidently composed mainly of metallic ores and
unusual—but naturally occurring—radium, was partially liquefied by the heat of reentry and fragmented on
impact. Several larger cores formed the basis of the pyramids while smaller chunks of matter, blown clear of the
central site, formed a ring at the edges of the crater. Over millennia, erosion wiped away the softer native soil
around the site, exposing the mildly radioactive “pyramids” and “faces.” Though believers in extraterrestrial
intelligence argued these theories, the final evidence became clear when exo-biologists proved the “humanoid”
remains found nearby were nothing more than an alien variation on ancient Terra’s velociraptors, and various
biological features of the long-dead amphibian beasts proved they were nothing more than desert scavengers,
likely struck down by the very same phenomenon that produced the so-called “ruins.” Though discredited, the
Ruins of Carnwath continue to draw the curious and die-hard believers in alien intelligence to this world almost
800 years later. This tourism industry, however, has proven barely sufficient to supplement the planet’s annual
income from its very average industrial and agricultural exports.
Carnwath’s capital city, Carnwath City, is located on the Wartholi continent, three hundred kilometers east of the
Ruins of Carnwath. Though it is regarded as the center of planetary commerce and industry, with over two million
inhabitants in the capital alone, the southern continents of Blanith and Kormyri actually boast a full three quarters
of the Carnwathian population.
 Carnwath was originally part of the Lyran Alliance until the creation of The Republic. Carnwath became
part of Prefecture IX under the control of The Republic. After the fall of the HPG Network Fortress Republic
was created and many of the worlds under its control were set free.
 Carnwath was released from the control of The Republic.
After being released from The Republic, Carnwath fell under the control of Clan Jade Falcon.
