Piscina V is a Imperial world that was once a Mining World, stripmined for hundreds of centuries. During the Age of Strife, Piscina V was left isolated for millennia and the planetary geothermal energy stations broke down and failed. This lead to planetwide destruction as massive earthquakes were triggered and giant volcanoes erupted. The cities of the planet were destroyed in the cataclysm and what was left of humanity regressed to a more primitive society. The skies of the planet are left covered in constant cloud cover from the still ongoing volcanic activity.
The Dark Angels Chapter used this world as a recruitment world, visiting it once every few generations to find new prospective neophytes.
