Sluis Van. Pride of the Sluis sector, the Sluis Van system means power to the ears of any sentient being. Everything here seems stronger than in other locations. Even an uninhabited planet as Sluis IV is impressive. When you travel at sublight speed towardSluis IV from Sluis Van, the first thing you see is a bright white perfect sphere. And the first thing your sensors will detect is cold. Infinite cold. That planet seems to have forgotten to have a lava core. The level of frost is so hard that most sensors risk being destroyed if their owner isn't careful enough and gets near without care... Far from the asteroid roads, Sluis IV is a clean planet. Cleaner even than a commando's armor. But if you get, either you'll crash cause you didn't protect your craft against coldness, or you'll see the crashed crafts of those who didn't... Beware, that planet is a deathtrap. But caution is often rewarded. Mineral riches are everywhere under the surface. Sure you'll have to detect it through the solid nitrogen layer, without destroying your sensors. Sure you'll have to dig within without direct contact. No tool would survive such a cold, you'll have to use plasma-like tools. Sure extraction is even harder. But hey, for such riches, who cares?
