The planets surface is made of unstable gas which can not support anything heavy for any long period of time.


Slov 5Q3 has always been a source of mining of various resources used for trade by the Eglurn System. With less then 6,000 miners based on the planet the real value is in its resources. Most of the mining platforms that dot the planets "surface" are manned by automatons, with the Miners their more or less to oversee the operation and conduct repairs and tasks only a human can. The Platforms contain life support, hab centers, Maintenance bays, shuttle bays and of course the manufactorum which is the prime role and heart of each of the mining platforms. Orbiting the giant world is a small Star port which the haulers dock, re supply with the mined materials and then depart for the systems worlds mainly (Eglurn).

In these dark days each platform houses a Militias quarters, enough for one squad of militiamen to keep the peace. The star port itself houses a demi cohort of Eglurnian Auxiliaries, whom have express orders to notify the nearby 7th legion fleets if the mining operations are impeded due to traitor incursion.



Eglurn had already set up mining operations and as a major source of Promethium and other minerals within the sub sector it was only natural that the "parent" planet of Eglurn had built much of its wealth on the mining the planet.


With the other systems within the sub sector falling to the compliance with ease Eglurn recalled all those on Slov 5Q3 to allow them to be safer and ensure that they spoke for all the system during compliance. In their place Imperial work gangs manned the gas giants work platforms, it was to be seen as an act of good faith, that Eglurn would give up its most valuable mining world for the Imperium, to show loyalty. At least the Officials of Eglurn wanted it to appear that way.

Post Compliance

While Eglurn had accepted compliance the opportunity risen from the Horus Heresy has allowed them to provide resources from their mining operations to legions on both sides on the conflict. It appears this gamble might be the course of the battles now happening within the system. This is a very risky operation and a rather Ironic one after they gave up control of the work platforms, the ore and minerals that the Imperials mine are going directly to the traitor legions and their own loyal ones equally. Eglurn walks a deadly line with this ploy, reaping the financial rewards for the time being, but with Imperial control tightening in the system and with the invasion of the system underway it is only a matter of time before they are found out by one side, or the other.
