A conquerable 0.0 region on the western side of the map, very close to our former home in Syndicate. The site of our first true foray into conquerable space. Cloud Ring is one of only two regions with no player-built outposts, largely because only one constellation in the entire region is worth anything at all, and all three of the conquerables are already there.

Following the collapse of YouWhat in October 2007, the region has been very unstable, with ownership of the stations changing almost weekly.
