In The Emperor's Service
Avalos is by and large an unremarkable world, like a million others across the vastness of the Imperium. It rests on the Eastern Fringe of the galaxy, on the very edge of the Orpheus Salient, between Hethgard and the Well of Night Its people toil ceaselessly under the rule of the Emperor and the guidance of the Administratum, their labours almost entirely given over to the production of food crops and domesticated animals, shipping huge supplies off world to feed the soldiers of the Achilus Crusade.
The majority of the world’s surface is a sparsely populated network of farms, orchards, mills and ranches. These are connected by a vast collection of roads, rail lines, and shipping lanes, all feeding to the world’s largest city and its only spaceport, Lordsholm. Situated on the coast of the world’s great southern continent, the city is home to the bulk of the planet’s population and is the seat of its government, the home of its PDF garrison, and its connection to the greater Imperium.
