|Information||Dutch in the Badlands|
The most toxic place in the Quad, the Badlands are what is left over after the Company has stripped the landscape bare of resources. The sand of the badlands reflects electromagnetic energy and disrupts spaceship navigation systems. The pollution is so extreme that the area spawns lethal Black Rain storms.
Because of the nature of the Badlands, outlaws and others who do not want to be found have established hideouts there using technology to filter out the toxins in the air and water.
