Vant orbits the vacation planet of Yrocyn. The moon's surface is covered with a tangle of vegetation in several distinct layers. There is rampant ground cover, low-level bushes and shrubs, and immense canopy trees. All of the moon's animal life has been imported from other worlds, all carefully balanced to ensure a fairly balanced - if artificial - ecology. The wildlife includes vicious predators, benign herbivores, as well as unique plants and fungus species. Vant is maintained as a large hunting preserve. Galactic big game hunters from the galaxy come to hunt in a most unique setting.

There is one permanent settlement on Vant, Fort Expedition. The Fort maintains a limited service spaceport and simple barrack-like quarters. Many expeditions start here, but the planet also has several plains where ships can land. Aircraft can be rented from Fort Expedition or hunters with coordinates can utilize these other landing fields on their own.
