Origin's Official Guide to Privateer 2: The Darkening
Massanas thrives because of its location. When the first speculator founded the Lucky Strike Casino and Hotel, millions flocked there to escape the depressing chill of Hades and oppressive perfection of Janus IV. Within a few years, Massanas was established as the playground of Isaac. As testament to the paradoxical existence of the Tri-System Black Market, it is perfectly legal to sell, distribute and partake of goods of any type, but smuggling them on- or off- planet is completely forbidden.
Massanas is best known for its lax gambling laws, night life and free availability of black market goods. The planet itself provides no unique purpose, other than being an entertainment centre for the Confederations more seedy and rich populace. Although a blind eye is turned to the activities on Massanas, smuggling to and from this planet is not suffered lightly. The military are under orders to destroy any craft carrying illegal goods, with or without pilots inside. Be warned.
