Description:

A somewhat cold world, colonists were drawn to Komephoros by the promise of abundant natural resources trapped beneath its partially frozen surface. Unfortunately, the first settlers sent to this world vanished without a trace, their fate unknown until a second colony ship was launched to the world nearly a decade later. Finding no sign of the original expedition's JumpShip, the second expedition assumed its predecessor had simply misjumped until - after setting up a settlement on the temperate shores of the equatorial Marksenia continent - a scouting party dispatched to the southern continent of Calvinar picked up a very weak, automated distress signal, originating from what appeared to be a frozen lake.

Further investigation eventually uncovered the grisly remains of the first colonial expedition, which was apparently washed out in a freakish disaster caused when a rogue asteroid struck the nearby ocean with sufficient force to generate a wave that flooded the valley their settlement had been established in. When the planet then entered its three-year-long winter cycle, the newly formed lake froze over, and subsequent snowfall eventually buried even the colonists' DropShip from satellite scans. To this day, local legends say the lake, dubbed Luega del Condenado (Lake of the Damned), is haunted by the spirits of the lost colonists, and no modern settlements have been established within 300 kilometers of the site.

Over the centuries after the fall of the Star League, Komephoros traded hands a few times between Houses Steiner and Kurita, with many of its mining and ore-processing facilities damaged during each shift in control.

The capital city of Komephoros is located on Marksenia's east coast, and is also home to the planet's primary spaceport. Bristalle, largest city on the northern continent of Jasonri, boasts a secondary spaceport.
