Point of Interest: Research Station Gamma[edit]

After the late 300's settlement of this world, the Imperium constructed a separate facility staffed by its own personnel.

  • This station grew until it was officially designated Research Station Gamma.

Gamma serves as a clearing house for unexplained phenomena.

  • Within it are records of bizarre happenings and mysterious relics dating back tens or hundreds of millenia.
  • Untranslated nonhuman accounts and strange engines predating the First Imperium await the person able to read or operate them.
  • Many items in the station's collection are so odd that they are freely displayed to the public, although Tarin Sink's position within the Great Rift limits the number of visitors.
  • Imperial researchers, completely baffled by these objects, hope that someday, someone will pass through the station who can shed some light on these mysteries.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Tarin Sink is an Imperial client state and site of Corridor Research Station Gamma.

  • The planet was colonized by nine extended families during the wave of spinward expansion in the late 300s.
  • Most of Tarin Sink's modern inhabitants are their descendants.
