At the Heart of the Abyss
After months of bloody battle, and a near-total communications blackout, Clan Urdnot and it’s allied clans now claim nearly eighty percent of the planet’s surface. Clan Leader Urdnot Wrex has issued a formal statement of Krogan unity. This announcement sent ripples through the political and financial spheres. Travel, trade, and tourism anywhere near the Krogan DMZ has taken a massive hit, while military and security industries found themselves booming.
The Nemean Abyss is a place riddled with crime, corruption, and strange races seldom if ever seen in Citadel Space. Now people whisper of bizarre events. The dead return to life they say, whole planets are haunted, supernatural monsters lurk between the stars.
Most scoff at such tales. Products of an uncivilized life, they say, frightened tales told by those who are too ignorant to know better. But someone listened. Someone with the power to hack the message system for the Special Tactics and Reconnaissance division.
