The Abyss Rift is an area of space within the Lanth Subsector with a curious anomaly.

  • It is a smaller rift and typically not mentioned except by locals astrographers or starship captains.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

It has been the site of several notable ship disappearances over the last half-millennium and has built up a substantial amount of lore associated with them.

  • Curious jump-related phenomena have been reported in the rift for centuries, often by reliable witnesses.
  • Scouts plying the x-boat rout report events such as receiving radio signals in jump-space to reports of "someone on the hull, trying to get in".

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Some Terran observers have called the Abyss Rift the "Bermuda Triangle" of the Spinward Marches sector.

  • Experts have expressed extreme incredulity at these claims.

Worlds & Sectors (Astrography)[edit]

Only seven systems lie within the Abyss' boundaries.

  • The presence of three Red Zone worlds in the rift is taken as further evidence by locals that the rift is a bad place where strange and awful things happen.
  • The worlds are Victoria, Ylaven and Sonthert
  • Some believe that the anomaly is centered around astrographic hex coordinates #1917.
