“Look on my works and despair.”
–apocryphally attributed to an ancient Terran king
Near the Rifts of Hecaton lies an angry, churning star. Around it, the void is choked with debris and flare energies. The Disciples of Thule are among the only explorers to venture this far into the Expanse and return. They hold that Melbethe once hosted a strange xenos civilization who sculpted black palaces of the asteroids and left vast obsidian sculptures hanging in the void. They are long-gone, vanished to some unknown fate, leaving behind only broken wreckage.
