Shadows in the Void
Anderson’s Landing is a fairly recently discovered planet. Maxwell Anderson was scouting systems for valuable minerals when he found a beautiful planet with lush vegetation instead. Not to be deterred from finding his big mineral payload he did a scan and landed near the largest deposit he could find. He landed on the outskirts of a lush jungle and was disappointed to find that the deposits he read were scattered through out the soil and not economic to mine any way he knew.
He sold the location of the planet and his scans to the CPG settlement authority and they sent a more detailed survey team. The team reported the planet was quite habitable, had a 32 hour day and was very temperate. They found no large dangerous animals in the jungle and many edible plants in the jungle.
While the system is a good distance from any other via the Dismal Void a colony ship was sent almost immediately. Until recently was thriving with new settlers and had over 2,500 colonists. However, all of the colonists disappeared during Time Flies.
