One of the coldest planets in the ‘Verse, St Alban’s terrain is almost entirely mountainous. What really makes it unpleasant is the gorram weather, for it snows almost continually.
The people here are hardy folk. The principal work is mining the world’s rich mineral deposits. The Consortium’s not interested due to the harsh climate. The planet is divided into claims that the inhabitants prospect for whatever they can find. Theirs is a tough and lonely life, so the folk have developed a very strong community. If you offend one of them, you have offended all of them. The reverse is true, however: if you make one friend on St Alban’s, the entire community will look out for you.
