Tiny Villane is the main connector world for Browne to the rest of charted space. In antebellum times, several private calibration points were maintained by local crews that permitted crossing of the Rift back into other regions of Borderland subsector. It continues that role today. While Browne lost a great deal of population to Abandonment, Villane has gained a good deal. The local arcologies are fully underground and self contained. The Regency reinforced the defenses with several deep meson gun mounts, and populace prefers being safely entombed in their deep homes to the uncertainty of starting over in the Regency or the Hierate. Villane is a popular stopover for offworld crews, unlike Gikarlum the Villaneans have much need for entertainment, and the local startown is the dictionary picture definition of the word "dive."
