Geography and History
Mundus Planus is a fertile world with lush greenery, soaring mountains and azure seas, which, at the time of the Great Crusade, had achieved a black powder level of technology. The dominant Chogorian empire at the time of the Great Crusade was an organized aristocracy which had conquered most of the planet with well-equipped and highly disciplined armies. Armoured horsemen and densely packed blocks of infantry had won every campaign their ruler, the Palatine, had fought.
To the west of the Palatine's empire was a vast, wind-blown steppe, known as the Empty Quarter, home to nomadic tribes of savage horsemen who for centuries had roamed the vast grasslands. The tribes of the steppes lived in tents and followed a cycle of seasonal migration from summer pastures to protected winter valleys in the Khum Karta mountains. Consummate horsemen and archers, these disparate tribes frequently fought one another for control of ancestral pastureland. Chogorian armies had never invaded the Empty Quarter as the dry and desolate lands were of no value to the Palatine. However, Chogorian nobles would often lead hunting bands into the steppes and take whole tribes east as slaves or capture a lone tribesmen to hunt through the mountains for sport.
Jaghatai Khan united the tribes of the planet's western desert into a single horde and overthrew the rulers of the civilized empires. When the Khan left, he put Ogedei in control of the world, but Ogedei was not strong enough to hold the tribes together. The tribes fragmented and returned to their old ways of constant inter-tribal warfare. This may have been the Khan's purpose, because it allowed the Chapter's potential recruits to maintain their warrior culture. There would be many attempts to unite the tribes of the deserts but none would be as successful as the Khan's.
Fallen White Scars are brought back to their homeworld, to the pyre tombs on Khum Karta.
In 990999.M41, Chogoris was among the systems besieged by a Red Corsair fleet under Huron Blackheart. The White Scars were forced to withdraw from the Third War for Armageddon to deal with the threat.
