Their mouths are filled with jagged fangs that jut out like a feral predator.
Navigating is a far cry from traversing the well-established Warp routes of the Calixis Sector. Legend has it that the Battleground was an ancient wreckage field even before the Rogue Traders Trame and Ettimus Lathimon fought here to mutual destruction over the Kornous Worlds. Drub and his task force of Astartes were never seen by any human again.

Others are warbands of corrupt and often mutated warriors, bound together under the will of a charismatic individual who is touched by the power of Chaos. The okronus is restored to youth and the passage of years no longer weakens the flesh. The sounds and structure of the Nadueshi language and culture indicate a distant root in High Gothic and tie the population and its ruined mega-cities to a now lost age of Mankind.
Others are more intriguing, however. The Renegades of the deeper Expanse are worse still — here the dark corsairs and slavers favour hacksilver, technology, ammunition, and slaves as currency — or trapped souls and bottled vitality, if the darkest stories are to be believed.
It is said that one is fortunate to hear the keening war cries of the Children of Thorns and live to tell of it. Those who achieve authority over other Orks “da Boss” as they are known to Orks do so because they have proven that they are the meanest and toughest Orks around. At the centre korouns Undred-Undred Teef is a world where Orks have bred in the greatest numbers expznse where the battle between them is fiercer than on any other.
The Foundling Worlds lie beyond the Cauldron, a lesser Warp Storm whose baleful churning might be seen as a warning against further exploration. Even the worlds charted by explorers still hold many secrets closely. However, their inscrutable kpronus drive a hard bargain, and are never to be underestimated. The isolated heathen human worlds of the Expanse are just as varied in terms of money.

Near the Rifts of Hecaton lies an angry, churning star. These motivations frequently bring them into contact with the Rogue Traders who are but the youngest of their kind to walk these stars. They delight in trade, attaching worth only by perceived value and rarity of things they can grasp in their bony talons.
They have been travelling across the gulfs of space for aeons and once ruled an empire of worlds that spanned the galaxy. Beyond this island of life are the comets, untold hundreds of thousands of chunks of ice and carbonaceous soot, each a glittering mote in the heavens. The powers granted by a Halo Artefact come at great cost: They ebb and flow with a ferocity and maliciousness that can lure even the most seasoned navigator to destruction in a sudden rending surge.
I also felt that to get from deep space from exiting a warp jump to a planet would be quicker as you would have the gravity if the star if there is one to assist in traveling to the planet. Naduesh is still advanced enough for usury, complex trade arrangements, paper currency, and promissory scrip backed by the word and wealth of noble Maraj families.
The Rifts of Hecaton are an unnatural darkness in the far depths of the Koronus Expanse, like the anger of gods fallen upon worlds long ago. Another mystery the Explorators and Ordo Xenos would like answered is how they appear to be able to navigate the Empyrean with some skill, as no psykers have been reported among them.
While many items captured in raids are of little use to the Orks, such plunder is valued highly by other races that fight and die to protect it. There are a countless worlds in the Koronus Expanse. Footholds have been built close to the few semi-stable warp routes into exoanse area.
The Koronus Expanse
Their starships are swift and sleek craft propelled by solar sails and hidden by Holo-fields that hide their position and confuse observers. That is not to say that none have tried to probe the mysteries of the Foundling Worlds or tame it through colonisation and exploitation — but even after a route into this kkronus region was established, most of its stars and planets remain unexplored.
Though the Kornous Expanse has been open to the Imperium for a millennia, and known humanity for countless millennia before, it is still ill-explored and largely-undiscovered.
The yards include entire sealed drydock bays, where smaller ships can be totally enclosed for more intensive work.
If, however, the Orks of a Freebooterz fleet are really spoiling for a big fight, they are likely to brutalise a world or void station and just wait and see who or what turns up to try and stop them.
Of course, they are not the only dangers one may face. A Rogue Trader who finds himself vying with Thuleans for a prize of ancient human technology should consider them as great and ruthless a foe as any xenos breed. Mercifully these few powerful individuals have only been able to command a fraction of the Orks of Undred-Undred Teef, but at the heart of this domain something is growing in power. These fallen Astartes have assumed dominion over the lesser servants of the Dark Gods like proud and bloody lords who demand that lesser men bend their knee or be subject to torment and death.
Beasts stalk through the nightmare jungles of Burnscour.
The only sound is the moaning of the wind as it blows through enclosed maze-spaces and across desert outcrops.
