Point of Interest: Rumored Ancients Site?[edit]

Unsubstantiated rumors of a lost Ancient site hidden under the thick clouds of Mikhail’s insidious atmosphere continue to draw questers from parsecs away to launch fruitless expeditions to the planet's surface. Although evidence has been found that suggests the world was inhabited more than 50,000 years ago, no great discoveries or working technology seems to have survived the destructive effects of the planet's atmosphere to the modern day. That doesn't prevent adventurers, thrill-seekers and misguided treasure hunters from making attempts to map and explore the world's surface in search for the so-called Vault of the Lost Ones, named for the subject of an old Vargr spacer's ballad that has been passed down through the generations. The song tells the sad story of a spacer who lost his crew within a vault of wondrous technology after a misjump brought their vessel to the world.
