Upon descent, as far as the eye could see, jagged lapis-blue karsts peaked the horizon, almost reaching up to meet the flares above as they breached the atmosphere. Dazzling pearlescent skies laced with layers of swirling clouds gave the impression this was a land harmonious with nature, but as the exploration pod set down in the clearing of a misty swamp, this seemed far from true.

The karsts were hollowed-out with metal shards spiking out the sides, entangled in flora and corroding at the roots. Strange bird calls carried on the wind, underpinned by bloodthirsty growls that echoed from the tangled foliage.
