Belacane

From Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

An ancient and formerly highly influential Hive World, the Techmage Lords of Belacane have, in recent centuries, lost much of their influence within the Adeptus Mechanicus. Once known across the galaxy for its expertise in the manufacture of temporal stasis fields, the forge world appears now to solely be dedicated to hoarding its technologies and jealously guarding its sacred wisdom.

Principle Exports Belacane once was a fabulously wealthy forge world which produced virtually the entire Imperial stock of stasis fields,

stasis projectors and stasis grenades. However, the supply of these items has dried up over the past 500 years, and many whisper that Belacane now lacks the means to produce them. The planet now exports a variety of field based technologies, such as void shields, for use on millions of imperial planets. It also produces large numbers of weapons, with a particular emphasis on large scale defence lasers for the Imperial Navy.

Principle Imports Foodstuffs and some rare minerals
Contact with other worlds Belacane is in the Markayn Marches and is relatively close to such planets as Karrik and Prol IX
