This previously unclaimed worldwas bought out by SpinDev/Ventureprise in 1155. The ecosphere is primitive, and is dominated by large rainforests of spore producing trees and terrestrial invertebrates. Several of these spores are toxic to humans, and accounts for the Amber Zone listing. Spindev's operations on the world are shrouded in semi-secrecy, and have aroused the irritation of RQS several times. The company had been notoriously difficult in explaining irregular shipping patterns during the 1160s and 70s, and nearly lost its charter. The implied smuggling has ended, but the company's operations are still dogged by rumor and controversy.
