Vaal (0624 Daibei D497779-8): Though listed as
an agricultural planet, Vaal also has some of the richest lanthanum
deposits in the sector. So rich
in heavy metals is this small planet that its volcanoes exhale lead oxides
regularly, tainting the dense atmosphere. A few plants have adapted themselves
to remove this taint and make metabolic use of it. These few are, of course,
not edible by the human populace.
The lanthanum deposits make this planet an attractive
target for Solomani expansion.
The Naval base at Sotto has
kept a close eye on the system
and its near neighbors. -dai
