The Elrood Sector is a sector of the Empire located just off the Rimma Trade Route. The sector includes the systems Almaran, Berea, Bodrin, Coyn, Dega, Derilyn, Elrood, Halbara, Lanthrym, Kidron, Korad, Merisse, Osirrag, Tifnyl, and Torina. Most trade in the sector goes from Elrood to Derilyn alogn the Elrood-Derilyn trade route which connects most major planets. On one side of the trade route is the Drift, a massive dust cloud which prevents hyperspace travel. On the other side are smaller (but still large) pockets of gas called the Degan Gas Clouds. These clouds don’t pose a navigational threat like the Drift does.
