Fortress World

From Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search

With the Imperium in a constant state of war, some worlds are designated as Fortress worlds to act as bastions against the enemies of the God-Emperor. You are part of that defence, keeping the evil outside the gates from breaking through. This has made you part of the glory of the Imperium's mighty forces of war.[1]

A Fortress World is a category of Imperial planet where the entire populace is immersed in warfare. They are created as bastions against some threat. The most well known fortress world is Cadia, which guards the Cadian Gate at the entrance to the Eye of Terror.[Needs Citation]

In bureaucratic matters classifications of Research stations and fortress worlds overlap, both being ρ-class.[2]
