Into the Wild Black Yonder.
The darkest rumours of the Koronus Expanse originate from the region known as the Accursed Demesne. It is the least understood of all the areas that make up the Expanse, and there are virtually no reliable Warp Routes into or through this mostly uncharted area of space. On its far Rimward side it ends in the impenetrable Rifts of Hecaton. Close by to the Rifts from Spinward to Trailing lie the Dead Worlds of Rune, Illisk, and Melbethe, although some charts place Melbethe within the Rifts. Lathimon’s Death, another Dead World, lies on the Coreward edge of the Demesne, Spinward of the center, close to Cinerus Maleficum and Winterscale’s Realm; it is the unhallowed tomb of the famous Rogue Trader who fist explored the Expanse and thus its name was derived. The Processional of the Damned is a Trailing and Coreward system where Wrath Umboldt made a fortune and lost most of his crew and sanity. Thousands of space hulks orbit its tumultuous star, and most who come here never make it back.
