Located in the Cinerus Maleficum near the center of the Argylian Expanse, SR-651 is a giant red star standing silent watch over an empty system. Whether the system ever had any planets remains unclear, but the entirety of it is littered with dense asteroid fields, the shattered remains of shattered ships, and the detritus of a millennium of passing ships. SR-651 is also occasionally lashed with terrible Warp Storms and plagued by strange gravitational anomalies that cause the ever present debris to shift and flow like currents in a pool. Here and there are clumps hundreds or even thousands of kilometers across.
Despite the desolation and navigational hazards, SR-651 has two very important redeeming qualities. It’s located conveniently near the dead center of the Expanse, and lies directly off one of the larger trade routes that cross from Winterscale’s Realm to the The Heathen Stars. These factors, plus the endless supply of cheap materials gave birth to the Breaking Yards of SR-651.
