Gazetteer : Zuflucht

Zuflucht (NI-0101, C445720-8) was settled by refugees from a civil war on Topas; the colony slowboat Voyageur happened to arrive in system looking for colonists just as the war was ending. Today, the world still retains an anarchic feel. This is a world at the very edge of the Clusters, the Great Rift fills its night sky and it is clear that this is an outpost at the very frontiers of civilization.
Zuflucht has few visitors and little trade. It’s people are fiercely independent, and only cooperate with each other when absolutely necessary. Surprisingly perhaps, this is a peaceful and fairly prosperous world, where crime is uncommon and doors are regularly left unlocked.
