Fedrid is an Imperial Feral World, its thick forests are so dense and so teeming with dangerous carnivores that access is forbidden without a license. Fedrid is a particular favourite of game hunters and those individuals procuring animals for the Imperial arenas.[1b]

Saint Quivvar Nog of Fedrid hailed from Fedrid.[3f]

Has a stable Warp route to Sepheris Secundus.[1c]

Native Flora and Fauna

The forest world of Fedrid holds the dubious distinction of having a huge population of large predators, making the beasts of that world particularly fierce and perpetually hungry. The dangers are legion, ranging from the tiny but insidious flesh boring rot worms, to lurking pit-biles hiding beneath the loam with snapping jaws like mantraps, to thorn-back reptiles the size of Imperial Guard battle tanks.[3c] There are predators on Fedrid that would think nothing of consuming a Land Raider whole.[3e]

Of the varied predators haunting the emerald jungles, the “tree-jumpers” are the best known. Six-limbed mantids the size of an adult man, that dwell in the high canopy, leaping from tree to tree, ceaselessly hunting for their next meal. [3c]

The most fabled of Fedrid's monstrous creatures is the Sa’vak; or the “black death” as it is also known, perhaps the greatest horror of Fedrid. Massive creatures, growing up to tens of metres in length, capable of standing dormant and utterly indistinguishable from dead or petrified tree-boughs until their prey draws close, then their fibrous carapace opens up to reveal saw-toothed tendrils, poisoned barbs and vast beaked jaws. The Sa’vak is Fedrid’s most highly sought prize, and one that has lured innumerable would-be hunters to their death.[3e]

Other known dangerous animals of the planet include the sabre cats and blood wolves.[2]

Known Exports

  • Fedrid Razor Disc — Developed by the hunters of Fedrid the throwing disc is little more than a razor edged disc, about the size of a standard plate, which can be thrown with surprising accuracy. When thrown the disk makes a low humming sound, allowing the hunter to follow the disc by sound as it disappears into the dense Fedrid undergrowth.[3b]
  • Fedrid Smoke Flares — Fedrid smoke flares are made from hollowed out spines of cactus-like plants. They are then filled with a cotton-like sub-stance, that, when lit gives off a high yield of thick black, acrid smoke over an area of up to 40 metres.[3d]
  • Fedrid Braid Cloak — The hunters of Fedrid rarely go tracking without wearing a braid cloak. The cloak is made from the tough hide of a large herbivorous creature.[3c]
  • Fedrid Soul Mask[3d]

Planetary Data

  • Galactic Position — 122/93/CS/E [1c]
