Gertafuu VI was a frigid astronomical object that occupied the sixth orbital position[3] within the Gertafuu system[2] of Wild Space.[1] It was the site of Fort Balarad, a well-protected smuggler outpost. At some point, Fort Balarad's Aqualish and Whiphid inhabitants traded in furs and exotic meat.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Gertafuu VI was first mentioned in the seventh issue of the Star Wars Gamer magazine,[3] which was published on October 16, 2001.[4] The celestial body was described within Cory J. Herndon's article "Bartyn's Landing," in a sidebar detailing alternate ways to adapt the Bartyn's Landing setting, presented in the article, for use with Wizards of the Coast Star Wars Roleplaying Game.[3] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Gertafuu system, and therefore Gertafuu VI, in grid square S-18.[1]
