An Inheritance of Stars
The Temple is a dead system at the very outskirts of the Great Warp Storms, a short warp jump from Port Wander. It is a strangely symmetrical, almost artificial system of perfectly spherical rocks several hundred meters in diameter orbiting a sun that is a cinder of dense matter. Nothing else exists — no dust, gas-streams, or worlds. The Temple is so named either because of a long association in spacer myth with the Temple card of the Tarot. The card signifies the commencement of a blessed endeavor but also the passing out of the realm of the sanctuary of the known.
The Temple is also home to a mysterious sect of assassins and bounty hunters known as The Crèche.
