The Battle of Castobel
System reference: Tertiary sattelite of the Octavian system designated Octavian, only habitable planet in the system, Atlas Stellarum Jericho, M.35 reference.
Classification: Mining World
Population: Approximately 55 Million.
Tithe Grade: Currently the tithe is Aptus Non (Read below for more details).
Formerly the tithe grade was Exactus Particular. The planet’s crust is rich in Adamantium, which serves as an important part of weapons and armour manufacture, and was vital to the resupply of crusade forces.
Geography/Demography: A wasteland from strip mining over the past 5 millenia, the once livid and bountiful planet of Octavian has become a focal point for the crusade forces for its valuable mineral deposits. The mining was overseen by the Adeptus Mechanicus, and the bulk freighters of the Mechanicum ferried the adamantium ore processed here to the Celebos Warzone to bolster the fighting forces of the Achilus Crusade.
Governmental Type: None
Adeptus Presence: Several agents of the Adeptus Mechanicus are suspected to be marooned on the planet, after the appearance of the Hadex Anomaly. Most of the other Adeptus’ may have remnants on the system, but it is believed to be in the outer reaches of the planet, as proximity to the Hadex Anomaly has likely resulted in subjugation or enslavement of the forces of the Imperium on this planet.
