BARD PAPER: OPAL6006
This world weathered the collapse well, and was a minor
port of call for free traders in the subsector. When it was contacted
by Strom in 1137, it was offered and accepted aid programs to help
it's recovery. In 1143 it offered to become a Protectorate of Strom's
in exchange for Home Rule. This was accepted, and Slider has become
rich through the increased trade that has resulted. The planet is
still run by the Slider Port Authority, but with increasing local
input. The local traders have a reputation as the canniest in local
space. Slider is also the location of the Pact Headquarters. Located
in a massive geodesic dome carved out of a mountain overlooking the
port, it is considered a wonder by the peoples of the pact, but the
locals just refer to it as 'The Chrome Dome'. The exact reason for
this appellation is unknown, as the dome has little metal fittings
on the exterior.
