This planet was once green and fertile, but an unknown phenomenon has transformed the surface of the entire planet into a gold alloy. The mixture is so hard that it is hardly worth the effort of mining.
Due to the shiny surface and the hot climate, the Krodaa have built several settlements on Maravela. Despite all the adversity, they try to find a lucrative way to mine gold. Moreover, the proximity to the Skullgate is a reason for religious pilgrims to visit the place.
