Valkyr (1709 Gateway BA598FE-C): A high-gravity
world noted chiefly for its warrior class, the Valkyrs. Drawn exclusively
from the world's ruling elite, the Valkyrs are extensively trained from
childhood in combat and raiding techniques, sabotage, and special operations.
The hot, thin air and high gravity has produced a strain of humans
adapted to the harsh environment, stronger and with greater endurance than
normal people. The Hochiken People's Assembly has been castigated in the
past few years for conducting deliberate human genetic experiments on Valkyr
in an attempt to produce a race of super warriors. Granth
has consistently denied all such rumors, while at the same time refusing
to allow outsiders to visit this world.
Visas and special passes to visit Valkyr are available
only on Granth -gat MTJ 4
