The Arkesyyan Chronicles - The 11th KingThe warm dusky glow of a far-away sun shine through the thin layer of clouds, above the city of Arkesyys. A miracle to many, Arkesyys has no ground, nor is it located on any planet, moon or asteroid: it is a self-containing city in a dome, with the required atmosphere for the plants and animals, with natural preserved parks for oxygen and purification, and above all, many streets, buildings and towers. Its inhabitants have no need for a planet, nor for the constant presence of a star. Instead, Arkesyys and its people drift through space, forever sailing.

I do not know how this could have happened without our hearing of it. The people live in such great fear that they have no hospitality for strangers. Our party sleeps in the open, and in the night, we have heard such cries and howls that I am convinced that Demiourgos has made his h

Connor Thorn, Messiah (™): Chapter 10 (Part 2)
Rewind a few moments, now.
It was with a clear, and irrationally-fixated-upon, mission in mind that Connor Thorn made his not-so-graceful descent to the ground outside the Scapestrider, in rather narrow avoidance of toppling down onto his mentor in the process… partly due to him not being entirely in his right mind here, yes, but with it still begging restating that this did seem like an awfully dangerous mechanism for when multiple people were exiting the vehicle. Thorn found himself paying little mind in regards to what the others were up to at this time (and were expected to remain doing for hours to come), and spent likewise little time in their presence before setting off on his own. Granted, now, of the seven people comprising his current company, only two of them were objects of personal attachment for, or even had their names or any other identifying distinctions known to, Thorn, so relatively speak
