While the first planet of the Grutoka system, itself simply called Grutoka, is nothing more than a gravelly rock floating around an exhausted star that went nova millennia ago, the planet's name is notable nonetheless for its association with its foremost satellite, the space station known as Kron's Lock.
The smuggling port is housed within an ancient terraforming device of a long-forgotten civilisation. Reclaimed by a notorious crime syndicate run by Uro Gruul, the Lock has become a hub for black-market goods and smugglers keen to profit from its location both within common smuggling routes but far enough away from Imperial patrols to be relatively safe. Known as a pirate's haven, the Lock is wild and dangerous, but for those on the run from Imperial law, it is far better than most alternatives.
