Antares Star Systems and Planets

There are a wide range of planets and systems named in the guide to the Antares Universe, the V1 supplements and in some of the background and scenarios here on the Nexus. This article is a high-level gazetteer to those systems and planets of Antarean Space.

As new planets and systems were mentioned or identified, this will be updated. And as worlds are expanded upon, links to their detail articles will also be added here.

The ‘Where found’ column indicates where a reference to the planet or system was originally stated: ‘Universe’ refers to Antares 2: The Universe (2022); ‘BtGoA v1’ refers to the original core rulebook (2016) and is only mentioned where it gives substantial information above that of the A2 Universe‘Xilos’ to The Battle for Xilos supplement (2016); ‘Chryseis’ to The Chryseis Shard supplement (2017); ‘Dronescourge’ to The Dronescourge Return supplement (released mid 2018); ‘Splintering ‘refers to the PDF mini-supplement The Splintering Shard (2019); Bronvar refers to The Bronvar Campaign mini-campaign scenario PDF (2019).
