The Site Itself

While their continued alliance with Omir Sarikusa is in question, they do seem to be planning something big.

This is a waiting area for trusted black market traders that come here to trade goods (mostly slaves and weaponry) with the Crimson Hand. Security in the area is fairly light, since this is not really a part of the base proper. Caution is still advised, since the area is usually crawling with lowlife scum from every corner of the galaxy.
