Reports from the Edge: What are the Hunters Hunting?

Excursori agent Major Demon recently sent a report. It was received by the repeater at BANCE-11 (near TRAPPIST-1). We believe it was sent from the far edge of the zone we call the Stellar Graveyard, but there were no location markers in the message and portions were garbled as though it was damaged in transmission.…

Pirates Among the Asteroids

Out in the asteroid belt, the Dominion would like you to believe it’s a bunch of happy, go-lucky miners bashing rocks for a living. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. It’s more like the high seas of the 1700s when Blackbeard, Captain Kidd, and Jack Sparrow terrorized merchants and travelers alike with their criminal antics. Pirates…

Treasures in the Belt

There are few things in the solar system as unique as the asteroids in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Since Giuseppe Piazzi discovered Ceres, the first and largest asteroid, we’ve had a fascination with discovering what was out there. And when we finally started a process of not only mapping, but mining the…

Reports from the Edge: Eager Shadow, 2228

The Excursori are a secretive society of explorers who brave the edges of space, exploring uncharted worlds and treading where few souls dare.

Sparks – The Empire of Sand

The Empire of Sand has always been a bit of an enigma. Rumors abound. Facts are in short supply.
