Desert Planet

Home to the city of Ardvak, Astarte has the highest crime rating of any planet in the subsector. Or at least it would if it had any laws. Ardvak has become infamous for becoming a haven for pirates, bandits, thieves, gangsters, and a host of other unsurly types. Travellers to the planet are advised to never leave their belongings unguarded, and in general don't bring anything with you that you would mind losing.
