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.

Kedus is home to several persisting plant species that take advantage of offworld plants grown locally as row crops. Several attempts at placing agro colonies here failed as a result, and the population dwindled to small, scattered communities of stubborn family farmers. The increase in trade between Trojan Reach and Deneb has been a godsend economically, as traffic piles up in the crowded downport. The families have banded together, ruling the world by their monopoly on local land, and forcing immigrants to live in the vicinity of the downport. The current starport is too small and crowded to handle all of the traffic it recieves, but the planetary government seems happy to rack up high port fees rather than construct an expansion.
