The Vampire Highway is a sort of trade route used by Vampires, which is to say incorporeal electronic lifeforms.

Description / Specifications[edit]

In Diaspora Sector, the highway runs through the hearts of Khavle, Pasdaruu and Promise subsectors, then down the Khulam Main, terminating in the vicinity of Montezuma. Although vampire activity has been noted elsewhere, including rimward of Montezuma, the incidence is much lower than along the above route. Indications are that the highway continues coreward through Massilia, although we have very little reliable information on it there.

  • In general the highway tends to follow the lines of the jump-1 mains in each of the subsectors. The patterns of vampire activity along the highway seems to consists of fleets tied to the mains and solitary ships which are mobile.
  • An additional feature of vampire activity is the marked preference for gas giant refueling. In the Khulam Subsector this has kept the Kide-Lefiguura-Desel Cluster almost free of vampire activity, and kept it at somewhat lower levels rimward of Khesanadu (Diaspora 2731).
