An unremarkable medium-sized gas giant, Pox stands alone in the distant cold reaches of the Tendril system. It’s the only planet beyond the Cyra Belt. Not surprisingly, the citizens of Alaundril and the visitors from the Stellar Ring have united in ignoring Pox ever since the system was first explored almost two centuries ago.
More than two dozen small moons orbit Pox. This far from Tendril, these satellites experience less radiation; they also absorb much less warmth. All of Pox’s moons are lifeless rocks, and the only construction is a series of shafts and quarries made by miners who are either afraid of the contentious Cyra Belt or seeking solace in Pox’s lonely orbit.
In February 2501, StarMech opened negotiations with the Nariac Domain. Officials of the Domain expressed an interest in acquiring the rights to Pox and its moons, and have begun to make offers. The Domain hopes to use the moon to create a secure way station for further exploration of the verge, but so far the negotiations haven’t been fruitful. StarMech has declined outright purchase, and instead seems to be pushing for Nariac and VoidCorp recognition of all StarMech claims in the Verge.
