GEOGRAPHICAL

PLANETARY

 

  • Class: Terrestial

  • Diameter11,034KM

  • Gravity: Standard

  • Climate: Tropical

  • Primary Terrain: Volcanic Mountains, Mountains, River Valleys, Jungle Islands and Rainforests

  • Atmosphere: Type I

  • Major Locations:

    • Nocturne Forge: The Nocturne is both a forge and a mausoleum, it is here that the great Forgefathers and Forgemothers lay. Entombed throughout the forge so that they may guide the new Forgemasters who come to this place. It is said that the Holy Mother Astra herself blessed this forge and that it is she who imbues the weapons and armour made here with holy power. To forge here is an honor one earns and is not entitled to, it is bestowed upon Forgemasters by the Archsynods who oversee all Forgemasters here on Neverria. The Archsynods are the grand Forgemasters voted into their ranks by the others just as one Archsynod passes and is later entombed here in the Nocturne.

    • Ko’tan Kadai Academy: Where cybernetics, biology, medicine and engineering meet with Her Royal Majesty’s great expectations. It is said that the school was brought together by King Roman the First on Unification Day. Unification Day honors Lord Ivastaan Ghaul of House Ghaul who led House Ghaul into its final days of the Unification Wars.  The Academy was named for the fallen hero Ko’tan Kadai, a comrade and confidant of his Lordship. Ko’tan and his squad gave their lives so that Ivastaan could retreat and thus we have Pask (Engineering), Kayvaan (Cybernetics), Anathema (Medicine), and Sicarii (Biology) Halls arranged in a large square.

    • Forge School Infernus:  At the age of sixteen the children of Neverria choose their path, a university, a trade school, the military or a civilian work. For those who choose to go into trade are offered a variety of schools to go to. Including the Forge Schools, monitored by the Makers these schools are responsible for training the new and very young Forgesmiths who will go on to become the creators and great crafters of tomorrow. Forge School Infernus is one of the oldest and most renowned schools in the world second only to Forge School Maelstrom. Infernus’s notable claim is the Prime Maker Su’Tan taught by the Founding Forgefather Vulkanus.

    • Celestian Palace: Encompassing twenty-two acres the Celestian Palace is home to Her Majesty  Queen Valencia. It includes a chapel and houses its own clergy, the Palace is opened to the public midday three days a week to those looking to view the beautiful yet dark home. It is said that the Palace was built where Cardinal Edarius IX received his charge to Purge the heretical Abyssals from the Dominicon Delpharius the II. A monument to this moment had been erected but eventually brought down to coincide with Parliament’s Freedom of Religious Worship Act. The Palace was built by Lady Araceli Vega-Ghaul, who later became Queen Paloma the Just. Beneath the sprawling palace lay a dungeon where those who did not kneel before House Ghaul were brought, and either tortured or rotted for the rest of their days. Historical Halls commemorate the changes throughout Neverria’s history and the Royal Family’s lineage.  

    • St.Rhiannon’s Convent:  St. Rhiannon’s Convent sits attached to the church that bears the same name, and here young girls devote their lives to Aurora. They are raised to be her divine eyes and ears who go on to lead the masses in worship. Others within the convent are selected for a different purpose, and that is to combat heretical worship. To defeat the Abyssals, they are the chosen known as Ordo Astra. St. Rhiannon’s is one of the oldest and largest convents on Neverria.  

    • Caliban City: One of two main cities on Neverria, Caliban City sits as the militaristic capital of the planet. It is home to many of the main features on Neverria including the Celestia Palace, and Kodai Academy. It is also one of the oldest cities legend has it that the planet was founded by Horus’s son Alpharius there in the main plaza, a shrine has been erected to honor Alpharius and his service to the Auroran Church. Caliban is also home to Tu’Shan Forge, a grand forge that has forged many a ceremonial armor. Many young forgeworkers and future forgemasters start their work at Tu’Shan. The city is lined with coal-colored statues, lined against dust colored streets that are paved with the finest gravel.

    • Mt. Vulkan: It is said that Alpharius was born from Mt. Vulkan that he and his hounds known as the Lunars emerged from Vulkan. Horus found Alpharius and took him as his own, Mt. Vulkan is also the resting place for greatest warriors, priests, scrollmasters and for those forge masters who elect to be interred here. And it is here in such a holy place that rumors say you may find the defilers, the Guild of Blades. Those who believe that Roboute did no wrong, Corax Corvous founded the Guild of Blades and invited many Abyssals to learn the art of war. To be forged from Vulkan’s heat into the finest blade in which to pierce into the heart of many true Aurorans.

    • Ohmn-Mat Forge: This forge is a quiet forge while it doesn’t have quite the notoriety as the Nocturne Forge. Ohmn-Mat is often used by those who are just starting out as it is more forgiving than Nocturne. Once you have conquered Ohmn-Mat you are ready to begin your work at Nocturne.

    • Mt. Prometheus: One of the great mountains that once spewed such great fire and heat that it is said that it Prometheus was born from Neverria itself and rose to bring his people the gift of light, hearth and home. Often seen as a protector of their lands those loyal to the Crown and the Church swear by its majestic presence. Having held back a number of Abyssal surges, or swallowed them whole all together.

    • Ultramar Planus: The plains of Ultramar are generally quiet, but bear the blood and ghosts of many long since dead. The Ultramar Planus is said to be the place where Aurora was beaten, chained and otherwise humiliated. Thus as you cross the plains and walk along the caravan routes you’ll see offerings, altars and other symbols meant to bring peace and goodwill. As a way to appease Astra and Horus, a way of apologizing for their actions. Once a year there is a festival known as the Epiphany of Lights. Many from far and wide gather to sing praises to the Gods, and sing songs of sorrow as they bid goodbye to their loved ones and repent for their actions from the year. The Auroran Church does not recognize this festival, but many still attend.

POPULATION

 

  • Native Species: Neverriaans (Human-like)

  • Immigrated Species: Chagrians, and Humans

  • Population: 7 Million

  • Demographics: Neverrians (52%), Humans (28%), Chagarians (20%)

  • Primary Languages: Basic, Chagri, and Nevari

  • Culture: War and Faith go hand in hand on Neverria from the moment one is born to the day they die. Many are baptized into the Auroran faith and are taught to wage their war against the Abyssals. Those who have turned against the Church, life here is simple. Know your faith, know your blade and from this your life will be well, but it's harder than that. Food is hard to come by, many live on rations or nutripacks there is no grand hoorah with mealtime. You take your pack and go, get back to training, get back to work. When you arrive to Neverria there is a rather unique odor, foul for most - incense and death tear at your sense of smell. Latrines and bath houses are shared in a very Romanesque fashion. The only sports here are those found in the arenas, gladiatoral bouts, or large battles staged for the glory of Aurora herself. Art is rare but treasured, time spent to let the mind heal often produces the music and art of Neverria. War drums, songs of death and the majesty of life and how Aurora and her faithful are delievered to the Heavens. There is but one way of life here, and that is a life dedicated to the great Church, in honor of the throne.

  • The Monarchy here is quite revered, figures used to inspire and motivate the masses. It is the Monarchy who advocates for more of the arts, admiring many skilled in the Forge as artisans transforming the view of what is art on Neverria. Reminding the populace that it is by Aurora's grace that they are all here, a note that they should help the poor and sickly for it is what she would do. And while the Monarchy may advocate for such measures they are not the Church nor the Legislative body. Instead they hold the tight line position between the two. They have a disdain for those who would worship them as deities, and work closely to ensure that the Legislative body works to the will of the people.

 

GOVERNMENT & ECONOMY

  • Government: Greater Nevari Union; Parliamentary Monarchy

    • The GNU or Greater Nevari Union is the ruling planetary government, comprised of a House of Commons and the Senate. The House of Commons elects Commissioners, the number of Commissioners assigned to a province depends on the number of people living there. Commissioners rule counties, counties are smaller areas that make up a province. The Senate on the other hand are elected in pairs from a region, regions are made up of several provinces. Together the Senate and Commons work together on legislature and the overall governance of the planet, they are known as Parliament. Parliament holds chamber meetings in which the Ministers then sit and speak with both houses in order to better discuss and create law that works for the people. Of course the lot also speak on taxes, education, agriculture, health, science, defense and all the items that come with governance. Ministers are appointed by the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, both of whom are elected by the people of Neverria.

    • The second part to the GNU would be their monarchs, and while they no longer have any true power. Monarchs have the ability to veto law, or legislation that they believe will harm the people of Neverria. They are the final stop of any piece of legislation. They also have final say on judicial appointments, although this has rarely been an issue as the Monarchy seems to usually agree with the Prime Minister’s appointments. The current ruling family; the Cartagena family with their ruling Queen Valencia Inez Cartagena the Third who has recently turned seventy-five and thus far is the second longest ruling monarch. The first being King Roman Stephano Cartagena the First who ruled for nearly a century before his death (natural causes). Queen Valencia’s heir is said to be her daughter Princess Natalia Angelica Cartagena-Velez, with her husband the Prince-Consort Joaquin Horatio Guzman-Velez.

    • Note: The people of Neverria elect their Commissioners/House of Commons, as well as their Senators and the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister. Politicians may be recalled either by the people through a recall vote which has to be initiated through a system of petitions to the courts. Or by the Monarchy - and the only time in which the Monarchy may do so is one, in times of war or great peril or when the recall or call of the people have not been heeded.

  • Affiliation: Independent

  • Wealth: Medium

    • Neverria uses a contracted trader to sell their goods and thus they do not make as much money as they would otherwise.

  • Stability: Medium

    • Given the culture and  history of the planet, stability here is high - anyone thought to be a traitor or an abyssal mysteriously disappears. Abyssals run insurgent campaigns of terror into the interior of the main continent causing stability issues.

  • Freedom & Oppression: Oppression, there is a way of life here you follow it or die. Indoctrination into the way of life here begins at birth, but birth in itself is quite the odd notion here. Freedom is something to be laughed at, give freedom and you leave room for anarchy.

MILITARY & TECHNOLOGY

  • Military: Neverria is completely militarized and while it has not met with the galactic powers that be. Their weapons are considered barbaric but technology speaking on par with most of the galaxy at a standard level. 

  • Technology: Hyperdrive - the Neverrians have achieved this level of technology recently and are quickly studying the works of the Galaxy so that one day soon they might bring Aurora’s Light to the masses and extinguish all those who do not heed her word.

 

 

HISTORY
 

Soon after, the first ruling family known as Ghaul family worked to unite the Neverrions. Citing that Horus bequeathed to them the power to do so. Ghaul were challenged by the Beleth family from the South and the Wycoffs of the North and the Chagri Coalition from the East. War broke out between them all, one by one enemies were defeated the first of which were the Wycoffs (Fifty Years of War) who were married into the Ghauls. Next to fall were the Chagri forming the United Nevari Kingdom (Fifty More Years of War), and at last the Beleth family fell (100 Years of War) - forming what is now the Greater Nevari Union (Known as the 200 Year War). It would be from the Wycoffs that the eventual Cartagena line would be formed, for when the Ghaul line could not claim their own blood as heirs to the throne - they named Rogelio Magnar as heir. Rogelio married his lover Hernando Paloma who had a daughter by a Ghaul (although this was not known at the time). This daughter would later be Queen Aurelia Magnaria-Paloma Juarez the progenitor of the Cartagena line.

 

This is what the galaxy knows as the four hundred years of darkness. Records during the four hundred years of darkness were meticulously kept in vaults and archives, copies and copies secured in various locations. As the four hundred years drew to a close the monarchy shifted into the parliamentary monarchy it is today, this was after the founding of the Auroran Church. And while the Auroran Church is not the state religion, officially - unofficially it is the single most unified religion across the planet. After this is the religion or cult of Horus, followed by the Path of Enlightenment and the Cosmic Balance.

 

The Auroran Church deemed that the Gulag Plague was sent because of the unholy and blasphemous Roboute-Anaton worship associated with the Hellscape Church simply referred to as the Abyss. The monarchs accepted this as fate and that those who contracted the Plague were either secret Abyssals or had been corrupted by them and needed to be saved. Parliament refused to accept it as fact and acted quickly with the information available to try and contain the plague. And at long last when the plague had been contained, bodies burned and earth scorched - the Netherworld opened its mouth. It was feared that Anaton and Roboute had returned - and defeated by Horus himself.

 

As no other true explanation could be given at this time.

 

LORE

 

The Ancients describe the history of Neverria as a tale between two brothers, the first son Horus and the second son, Roboute and their father known only as Anaton. It was said that Anaton created Neverria through his hands he molded the planet into his vision. Anaton grew lonely and made for himself several wives, Ayreen so that she might give life and water to the planet. N’Ria so that she might bring her beauty to the skies above, Iarla so that her grace might make vegetation upon this world possible and lastly Mironia so that her winds might carry the air this world so desperately needed. Anaton had many children by these women and among them were his two favorite sons, Horus and Roboute and of them he made the old Neverrions.

 

Horus and Roboute competed for their father’s affections and attention. Roboute the younger, was a strong and noble lad who obeyed his father’s every wish. Horus who was the intellectual, the mighty and brave who did love his father but he loved his mother more. He saw that his mother was unhappy, her tears made the rivers and created the valleys of the planet. He asked her why it was that she so unhappy, and his mother said; “For I am without my lover, N’Ria. She serves your father so that she fears to leave her duties for me.”

 

Roboute’s mother N’Ria loved Ayreen, and Roboute saw her sneak away one night. He watched her leave and behind her a trail of stars as the skies became black. Empty of clouds and devoid of the beauty that was the day. The younger of the two brothers watched as his mother was welcomed into Ayreen’s arms. What he saw next disgusted him and he ran across Neverria and told his father. Furious at the betrayal, Anaton thundered across Neverria creating canyons and his anger boiled so that from the ground came the mountains that spewed lava across the land.

 

Mironia whispered to the lovers Ayreen and N’Ria to flee for Anaton was on his way. Her children struck their father in his path, creating massive storms to prevent him from finding them. He could not be stopped and thus fought his children and it was during this commotion. Horus learned what had happened, he ran toward the fight and with his ice cold hands struck his father. Roboute watched in horror, he worked his energy - the energy of the stars to fight his brother.

 

In the end; Horus struck his father down trapping him in the hellscape beneath the surface. Roboute in his rage at his brother’s own betrayal killed Horus’s mother and then his own. Horus the elder then struck his brother to be in the same prison as their father. Then with the help of Iarla and Mironia they secured Ayreen and N’Ria’s souls and they became the twin moons of Neverria. Horus swore on this day that no man, that no woman should have to hide their love away. They should not be forced into marriages and that this would never happen again, and thus the planet was called Neverria.

 

Horus was left with a world that now burned with rage as his father once had. And he was left alone, as one by one his family faded into the planet. Creating safe havens, and lush terrains for life to grow, the man-God banished himself to the heavens so that he could keep watch on the planet below. Vowing to return only to fight his brother and father should they be freed from their hellscape. As time went on, Horus relaxed and found a woman named Astra it was said that he found her among the stars and took her for his wife.

 

Through Astra, Horus found grace and found a way to calm the burning embers of the planet. As he did so, he found that his people had begun to worship his father and brother. Creating armies in their name Astra calmed her husband and bore him a daughter; Aurora. Aurora was sent to the planet as a way to bring a message from Horus to calm them. They did not believe she was Horus’s child and chained her up to stop her from spreading her father’s word. She was chained, beaten, and starved before she was tortured to death. Astra mourned her daughter and let loose upon the world her husband’s fury. Horus swept through and found that some of his so-called siblings had instigated this heresy. A heresy he dispatched with his own hands damning those who dare worship the vile of Anaton and his wicked spawn would spend their eternities burning in the hellscape with them.

 

All the while, Astra pleaded with Ayreen who then brought Aurora back from the dead. Whoever was to believe that Aurora was not only Horus’s daughter but believed that she could save them. Would be saved, but it would be to her that they would pray. As a promise to the people of Neverria that Aurora would listen - she would descend upon them a beautiful show of colors in the sky both during the day and night.

 
 

Note: Auroran Crystal to be subbed to factory at a later date.

As a 40k fan, keeping all of these mythological names straight was a nightmare, but this is a real solid submission conceptually and its obvious a lot of work was put into it.

I'm going to ask that you please reduce the size of the section headers, they're disruptively large. Additionally, please ensure your sub matches the template provided. You may format it how you wish (e.g: font), but the template itself should be left unmodified.

I have made adjustments with thought to the images, however; the submission includes the necessary template requirements. Adding extra information from my understanding was fine, so long as the sub met the template's necessary information requirements. If this has changed let me know.
