The world is covered almost entirely in bogs and mist-shrouded swamps. The only Imperial presence on the planet is a handful of cities, so that the population is governed almost completely by their own laws, except when, once per generation,[Needs Citation] they are called to recruit men for the Imperial Guard — the famous Drookian Fen Guard.
The Drook natives live for the honour of their clan names, and see any foreigner as an enemy that has hardly any right to continue breathing. The clans wage constant wars with each other, conducting raids on the ancestral territories of their neighbours, murdering, and looting everything that can be carried on the backs of the hairy riding beasts called rekhorns.[Needs Citation]
