A World of Black Ice
As Nyin draws back towards the settled frontier from the expanse of the Rimn’tor, the prospectors and belters are arriving in the assay offices, bars, brothels, and gambling dens of Ryi’Konn, Bey Airon and Izend. Out here, 2.05 Terameters (almost 14AU) from the worlds of the Galean League, rumors are starting to spread of something out among the floating mountains and glaciers. Something enormous.
A massive behemoth is falling into the Rimn’tor. With an albedo of .004, this giant mass is almost invisible against the black curtain of space so far out from Zhal, or Jovia. However, when measuring the passage of this mass through it’s gravity well, the behemoth is revealed to be 25% larger than Aardth, the third planet out from Zhal, and the largest known non-Gas Giant.
The surface of this mysterious planet-sized mass is mostly unknown. Rumors and theories abound among those who have heard the stories. Very few have witnessed it’s passage directly, and they either do not know, or are not saying what lies within that colossal void drifting among the asteroids.
