Necromunda is a Hive World in Segmentum Solar and a major producer of munitions for the Astra Militarum. Necromunda's forges never tire, producing lasguns, autoguns, shotguns, and even boltguns for the famed Adeptus Astartes. The planet also levies huge numbers of troops for the Astra Militarum (most notably the "Necromundan Spiders"), as well as other supplies. Necromunda is typical of most hive worlds, resources are scare, life is cheap, and its hive cities rife with powerful gangs.
The factories on Necromunda run deep beneath the planet's surface, these lower levels are referred to as the Underhive. Littered with a network of interlocking corridors and passageway the Underhive forms a maze of walkways and sheer drops into bottomless caverns. A dangerous place to live that is rife with crime and violence, the Underhive is controlled by Multiple Clan Houses Or "Gangs". The chances of survival are greatly increased by joining one of the many gangs, that inhabit all Hive Worlds.
There are six pre-eminent Clan Houses: House Cawdor, House Escher, House Goliath, House Van Saar, House Orlock, and House Delaque. Many lesser clans exist but none are as significant as these six. Many lesser clans pledge their loyalty to a House, but others might be outcasts or upstarts. Each of the Clan Houses controls countless subservient gangs with their fighters serving as the disposable foot soldiers in the endless Gangwars fought in the darkness over supplies, resources, and territory. This fighting beneath the surface allows the Clan Houses to continue business with one another with a semblance of civility in the spires above.
