Destruction of Areu Physical / Metaphysical Law in Reki Orbital Space Station | World Anvil

Destruction of Areu

I'm happy I don't have to go there...One of my cousins worked as an Extractor for a year or two and he said that it was horrible.

Since the whole planet of Areu shakes every once in a while, it is speculated by some scholars that the destruction of Areu was a great earthquake. Many other scholars disagree.  


The planet shakes around once a week. These shakes are small and the duration is only for a minute or two. Then there are larger quakes that happen around once a month. If a building hasn’t been built correctly it will fall. These quakes lasts for several minutes. It's also common that the pit mines change during these quakes. Work in the mines can not be conducted during these times. It is also discouraged during the small shakes.   It is unknown how or why the planet have these earthquakes. There is no natural reason for them, which means that the quakes must be supernatural. In the beginning, no indicators of the quakes were known but after a while it was noticed that a quake will always happen after the ground has become hot and howls of the monsters can be heard in the distance. Now it is much safer to work as a miner.   There are many theories for the reasons of the quakes. Some scholars believe that the planet started to shake because of the mining of Ark, they believe that the material is the blood of the planet. Other scholars believe in the curse theory. That the planet and the station for some reason is cursed. They say that is also why people are missing from the station. However, this is the theory that has the least evidence. Another popular theory is that the monsters are doing something that is killing the planet and causing the quakes.

I hope it doesn't explode! That doesn't sound good to have worldwide quakes that repeat.
