The Rifts of Hecaton
“So as these realms of stars are, so once were all realms that are now counted amongst the Imperium of Man: rich with the fear and darkness, and rank with the smell of secrets that belong to the dead.”
–attributed to Rogue Trader Solomon Haarlock
Beyond the larger nebulae of the Koronus Expanse are regions visited only by the silent Disciples of Thule and few others. Tales are told of ghost-vessels, beauteousbut deserted worlds, dust-nebulae that claim the souls of the damned and forsaken—and of course, wealth beyond measure, awaiting the courageous Rogue Traders who will claim it.
