General Information
When the Rosebourg Monarchy prepared plans to explore the Natashan Nation, the military requested and received authorization from the Rosebourg Crown to develop a launching base from which the necessary fleets could be launched, repaired and replenished. Because the Rosebourg Monarchy expected the Natashan Nation to be bigger than anything they expected, the Rosebourg (at the time) built a humongous (and what was considered then ridiculously large) site of production. Since the Depression of 2360, however, most of the fleet yards stand idle and the operational capabilities stripped so that the Gohorn capability to build up their military now greatly exceeds that of the Monarchy. The twelve-planet star-system entitled Grace Minoris proved to be a superb choice however. The wisdom of this choice is becoming more apparent now: Grace Minoris stands far enough away that it isn?t too close to the Gohorn or the L.M.C. frontier, and yet close enough that reinforcements launched from this site can reach the newly declared fronts within a few months.

Gerolden I
Home of the civilian government on Grace Minoris, Gerolden I is home to much of the civil service required to maintain the massive staging yard that is Grace Minoris. Gerolden I is a large planet, heavily populated by some of the brightest civil servants of the Monarchy.

Major Cities: Neer (seat of civilian government)
Places of Interest: Neer's commercial centres have become renowned for the availability of products from all over the known universe.
Military Protection: Several squadrons of the Royal Guard, the Royal Fleet, and the D.D.F
Government Locations: Neer (seat of government)
Orbit: Space Port Eunandra

Gerolden II
Gerolden II is the central brain for the Rosebourg Monarchy's space fleet, it is here that the future careers of the Rosebourg Monarchy's space sailors are made. The massive sky-crapers hide where much of the work is being down. Hidden deep underground where even multiple thermo-nuclear hits couldn't cause damage are the Rosebourg Monarchy's central command's strategic centres - which are not only highly advanced but massive in scope.

Major Cities: Kut (seat of Naval Command)
Places of Interest: The Naval Museum
Military Protection: Several squadrons of the Royal Guard, the Royal Fleet, and the D.D.F

Naval Command
The Rosebourg Monarchy has the largest and most powerful star fleet in the known universe. Coordination of this star fleet takes place at Grace Minoris. An advanced central command which is continually being upgrades operates here, along with massive support facilities that support the bureaucracy involved with the operations of the Rosebourg star navy.

Gerolden III
With the largest body count of all the military services, the populaton of Gerolden III is quite large and almost entirely military (the civilians electing to live on Gerolden I). Gerolden III houses all of the central planning facilities that are needed to run the Legionnaires' many operations throughout the known universe.

Legionnaire Command
Legionnaire Command is a massive facility which is almost entirely housed on the northern continent of this planet. The Legionnaire facility is an almost never-ending megalopolis that stretches as far as the eye can see. The buildings are surprisingly devoid of any architectural frivolity - a result of cost-cutting measures undertaken as part of the Legionnaire cost-cutting programmes.

Gerolden IV
Within the ice of Gerolden IV (an ice-planet caused by the fact that Gerolden IV's orbit is almost identical to Gerolden III, is the home of the Royal Guard's training facilities. The planet is kept off-limits to those who are not members of the Royal Guard or the Royal Family. Information on the planet is kept quite secret - with very little being divulged about the facilities that have been built into the planet's numerous ice-mountains.

Royal Guard Academy
Future royal guardsmen and women are selected at an early age and quickly placed on a training regiment that seeks to form them into an elite force tasked with the protection of the Royal Family. The Royal Guard training for many years within the ice caverns of the Royal Guard Academy, a training which is both grueling and ensures that graduates of this Academy are extremely skilled. There are no washouts because the Academy's teaching style is a secret well kept.

Gerolden V
Home to the Fleet's young recruits as well as their instructors, Gerolden V's Fleet Academy trains all future officers of the Fleet. The Academy is a huge facility - graduating on average over 100,000 officers, and nearly six time this number of non-commissioned recruits for both the Rosebourg Monarchy as well as friendly fleets that have a training exchange programme in place with the Monarchy. Gerolden V is as much a school-place as it is a party place, with the planet boasting as many discoteques as there are dorms.

Major Cities: Ssel (Fleet Academy)
Places of Interest: Discoteque Alley on the Southern Continent
Military Protection: Several squadrons of the Royal Guard, the Royal Fleet, and the D.D.F

Gerolden VI
Home to the Legionnaire's young recruits as well as their instructors, Gerolden VI's Legionnaire Academy trains all future officers of the Legions. The Academy is a huge facility - graduating on average over 200,000 officers, and nearly six time this number of non-commissioned recruits for both the Rosebourg Monarchy as well as friendly ground armies that have a training exchange programme in place with the Monarchy. Gerolden VI is as much a school-place as it is a party place, with the planet boasting as many discoteques as there are dorms.

Gerolden VIII
Gas giant that cannot sustain life

Gerolden IX
Gas giant that cannot sustain life

Gerolden X
Gas giant that cannot sustain life

Gerolden XI
Gas giant that cannot sustain life.

Gerolden XII
A gas giant that cannot sustain life. Gerolden XII's orbit was considered slow enough that it would actually be very useful to place a whole fleet yard facility around it. The Potsdam Fleet Yards, the largest fleet yards in the known universe were established here.

Potsdam Fleet Yards
The Potsdam Fleet Yards complex is a huge complex capable of producing a large number of starships at any given moment. The Potsdam Fleet Yards has not been operating at its full capacity for years, although it continually pours out the latest generation of Rosebourg destroyers. The Potsdam Fleet Yards is an artifial ring that surrounds the whole of Gerolden XII (which itself is a massive planet). Around 175 starships can dock with Potsdam Fleet Yards at any given point, and there are no less than 6 starship construction stations capable of designing starships up to fightercraft carrier size.
