From personal recordings of Valefarion The Night Lord
Kingdom of Eternal Darkness
Our ship Alcyone is relentlessy pushing through utter darkness of gloom. We are heading farther and deeper each day. By now the coldness of void can almost be felt through the walls. Void... Domain of lost & tormented souls. They follow us screaming their eternal grief. I'm sure most of them were tech dabblers and heretics. Undoubtedly they'd like to get inside our vessel. They'd like to escape the eternal torment they were predestined to suffer. Weaklings. I pity and despise them.
These are good times for the Night Lord. And Lilith of course. I work day and night. By days I craft weapons and ammunition, or study the weapons systems of Alcyone. The rest of the time I mostly spend with Lilith, who is also thrilled by the idea of the two of us travelling through this kingdom of eternal darkness.
Alcyone is carrying our small group towards Prometheon in search of our beloved friend Keinon. This time he has sticked his nose to some serious business. Apparently Key holders have talked him to find and send home the source of the unspeakable abomination we already encountered in Gharda. They intend to use it as a weapon of sorts. That sure is an interesting idea. But I can't help but think that the creature is actually going to use them. This may end up as a cosmic battle of God Machine versus Nemesis Machine.
Oh yeah, speaking of epic battles, we encountered a genuine Outer Rim Beast. They are truly as magnificent and frightening as rumors say! Few have met one and lived to tell the tale. Fortunately some have! With considerable effort I managed to find an ancient manuscript from the memory libraries of Arx Machinus, which described one of the few succesful encounters with a Beast. It has one weakness in its ten mile wide body. One must carefully aim to correct spot with heaviest weapons available and then time the shot perfectly. The idea is to hit the beast into its mouth, just when it opens its jaws to swallow a ship as whole. There will probably be no second try if the shot misses... I sent my report to Arx Machinus, in which I confirmed this method of hurting the beast.
Our travel continues.
