Vaal is a preindustrial, agricultural world.

Description (Astrography & Planetology)[edit]

Though listed as an agricultural planet, Vaal also has some of the richest lanthanum deposits in the sector. This small planet is so rich in heavy metals that its volcanoes exhale lead oxides regularly, tainting the dense atmosphere. A few plants have adapted themselves to remove this taint and make metabolic use of it. These few are, of course, not edible by the human populace.
