History and background[edit]

Port Famine is an independent mining settlement, which refines valuable chemicals from the planetary surface.

Point of Interest: "Kamikaze Run" Competition[edit]

The Khruel system is better known for its biannual Kamikaze Run competition. Independent traders from throughout the sector compete to be the first ship to safely travel through the inner planetary belt and get out the other side with a specially planted beacon. The belt is composed of billions of small asteroids, none larger than 50km in diameter. The competitors have to plan a route through the belt to the beacon, avoiding collision and planted mines which are timed to explode at hourly intervals. The winner of the race, as well as winning the prize money of Mcr1.1, gains a great deal of respect and sponsorship – especially as 28% of all ships never finish but are wrecked in the belt.
