Shore of an Endless Dark Sea
Every world is different. Once you get past Mars, every world is hostile. Sometimes the people are too, once they find out you don't have any hard currency. Europa is one of those places where you don't think there would be any people. The surface is a cold ball of ice, bathed in enough radiation to kill you in hours. But underneath that ice is an ocean, and cities cling to the crusty underside like barnacles. They smell like barnacles too, if you get too far off the beaten path.
