If the Sibex’s Forge Worlds are the beating heart of the Andranos Sector, Skarnhold is it’s belligerent brain. From this grand old Hive World, Lord Commander King Jonathon Luxin Valmere governs his Sector with all the bold military rulership of his forefathers, the Commander-Kings before him.
By his will, swarming regiments of gallant soldiers are drawn up from the planet’s ancient and baroque Hives to fight for the glory of the Imperium, of Andranos, and the personal glory of the King himself; For on Skarnhold, a real man serves with his sword arm. Only women, the weak, and slaves aspire to less.
THE GREEN SERPENT
Whether Skarnhold’s military culture is a product of the heavy tithe demands for soldiers placed upon the sector, or whether the whole sector’s vast human tithes are but a product of the military culture of it’s Capital, is an issue that has been subject to lengthy and heated politcal debate within the realm’s more civilised circles for as long as the Skarnhold Kings have been in power.
