The Grudovo Pendant is a j-1 cluster of 13 worlds that connects Tobia/Trojan Reach with neighboring Usher/Reft. Originally a cluster of little economic presence or importance, its economic value has risen in proportion with the rising volume of trade that passes between Lintl and Tobia.

Banskonno is divided between human, Aslan and Droyne communities scattered across the planet. Because of the wide distances between them, contact and trade are rare, and confrontations often occur when they do meet. Most of the world's water is locked in scattered salt lakes and seas, and each community is zealously protective of "their" water. Banskonno's shipyard is owned by Clan Severn, formerly of Trin/Trin's Shroud. The company's main office and plant were destroyed by the Kishkii, and the Banskonno facility is the only surviving remnant of that once great company. Severn's yards primarily provide maintenance service for units of the 128th Fleet returning from patrol from the Rift. Banskonno is the primary interface worlds for passage from the Safe to the Islands.
