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, which was published in 2001. 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's 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]
