“A place of beauty, magic and wonder, origin of the evil and darkness known as Morgandaûr, and home to mysteries beyond imagination.”
- - Master Ryen
The Space in Between, also known as the Corridor, is a region located within the Endless Space of the Cyrandia Cluster, between the Cyrannus Galaxy and the Quadrant Galaxies. The Corridor is one of the three ways to enter the Quadrants while travelling from Cyrannus, and vice versa, harbouring one of the three wormholes linking the inhabited regions of Cyrandia.
A realm of mystery, it is often said of the Space in Between that the rules which govern Cyrannus and the Quadrants are not quite the same within the endless systems, which are often characterised by a strong connection to mysterious energies, magicks and forces unknown to those elsewhere in Cyrandia. This has attracted many scholars in the past, such as the sages of the first Aldárae Order, and the mystical elves, both of which sought to understand the mysteries of this unusual region of space.
Historically the sector was remote for decades, until Rambo Nation discovered its location and allied the elves of Carnthedain. Upon the signing of the Nim-Glaré Concordat, the Space in Between fell under the authority of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, which constructed various outposts to keep the Corridor trade route safe. The Corridor itself a free passage amidst the anomalies which pervade space between the galaxies of the Cyrandia Cluster, and is the only extragalactic region close to Cyrannus and the Quadrants that is unaffected by the galactic barriers, created by the Oikoumene and Atlantica, surrounding it.
Much like the rest of the Cyrandia Cluster, the origins of the Space in Between are shrouded in mystery, though it can be assumed that, given its name, it has existed for as long as Cyrannus and the Quadrants have existed. Indeed, Space in Between is believed to be the only extragalactic region of the Cluster that is safe for travellers, though 'safe' is a relative term when faced with the deadly anomalies in the region. A place of strong magicks and unusual civilisations, it is known to modern historians that the first Aldárae Order were among the first to explore the region, establishing various temples and outposts to study and learn from the mysteries of the heavens. Archives found on Aldár tell that the ancient Aldárae believed that the Space in Between was the purest region in the cosmos, filled with the glory of the gods and blessed by the guiding Light.
However, the region was also the birthplace of great evil and darkness. From the verdant planet of Carnthedain, the evil sorcerer Morgandaûr spread his dark reach across the heavens, with goblins and orcs marching under his banner. Meanwhile, the elves of the region grew in power and grace, establishing great and beautiful cities, which they swore to protect against the dark influence of Morgandaûr, dragons and other dark forces. Eventually, the region was happened upon by Rambo Nation, which made an alliance with the elves of Carnthedain and began exploring the Space in Between with greater frequency, charting a wormhole connecting the Quadrants and Cyrannus used by the first Aldárae Order in ages past.
With the rise of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus, the region fell under the baleful glare of the Oikoumene Dark Emperor Tyrómairon, who sought to expand his dominion over all within the Cluster. To accomplish this, the Dark Lord established outposts throughout the region, to protect vital supply lines in the Quadrants and to uncover dark artifacts and acolytes to further his plans. With the outbreak of the Second Great Cyrannus War, many within the Cyrandia Resistance have begun to explore the Space in Between—a place where those who wish to become invisible can easily dwell. The Rambo Loyalist resistance and Legatus Finduilica forces clashed in the month January of 2820 (22AQF) over Isle Blue. After the battle, the Space in Between fell into hands of Legatus control once more.
The Space in Between hosts a diversity of planets and native inhabitants, though also harbours species which originated from other regions within the Cyrandia Cluster. Most of the Space in Between is devoid of life, due to the constant presence of the dangerous and often lethal anomalies. Marking the area with a high amount of scientific celestials for study. Though rather isolated from the rest of the First Gigaquadrant, it does have active wormhole connection to the Quadrant Galaxies and the Cyrannus Galaxy and is often seen as a place where you can escape the everlasting watch of the Imperial and Rambo authorities. It also seemed to have housed the presence of the original Aldárae Order before it went defunct. The Space in Between directly borders the Finduila Sector.
The Space in Between features various planets, home to a variety of species and nations with each its own climate, wildlife and alignments.
|Bunker Eighty Two is a military outpost of the Legatus in the Space in Between. The outpost is constructed within one of the many craters and includes a massive sattelite dish and a ASP fighter hangar to patrol the "Corridor".|
|Calcutta is the tropical and warm homeworld of the Calcuttan Aelfe, better known as the Calcuttan. A popular tourist location for the Dutch people and a place of pilgrimage for the Aelfe of the Space in Between. Calcutta is known for its kind and warm people, tropical weather and beautiful beaches, crab dishes and its the Cathredal of Qo-Oh, one of the holiest places within the Space in Between.|
|Carnthedain, a shiny blue large planet located in the area known as the Space in Between. Space in between can be best explained as a small area between the Quadrant Galaxies and the Cyrannus Galaxy which isn't affected by the massive graviton anomalies surrounding the Quadrants. In fact, the Space in Between is the only sector which provides life as it holds a sun. With it, Carnthedain is the largest and most prominent planet in the sector and is often seen as a shiny star from other planets. Yet Carnthedain holds many dangerous secrets, beautiful wonders and mystical places.|
|Isle Blue is prominent planet near the wormhole connecting the Space in Between to the Quadrant Galaxies. Once inhabited by the venerable and gentle Bluedion, care takers of the Atlantica remains on the planet their fate turned into a tragedy after the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus took hold over the planet. Fortifying the planet with a large installation the planet became check point against intruders that wished to enter the Space in Between.|
|Ozdudrahk is located at a distance of two weeks from Nexios in the western regions of the Cyrannus Galaxy. First planet in the north eastern sectors of the Space in Between, Ozdudrahk is the main space port and often the last port before entering the corridor leading to one of the few wormholes leading into the Quadrant Galaxies. Marked by one massive city between the mountains, plans life is harsh and most rely on trade and commerce to survive.|
