The Underwater Silos of the Shattered Isles
Storage facility for the blood of the God-husks, Ichor.
Attention passing vessel, you are in restricted waters! You have no authority to be here, stop your engine, turn around right now, or suffer the consequences. We have guns trained on you, and you've got 5 seconds to comply.
Hidden in the waters of the Shattered Isles
, an island nation south of Hansun
, is a complex system of silos and storage facilities that is heavily guarded by the Legion
. The exact location of these silos are not fully known, as guards on Legion watercraft sail a wide shifting pattern in the area. Stored within the silos are the most valuable liquid known to Cathedrans -- Ichor. Taken directly from the veins of God-husks
by incredibly well trained and talented teams, Ichor is the single most difficult material to gather in large quantities. It's the main fuel behind the magic of Catalurgy
, and misuse or unintended contact can convert living beings into Rendlings
. Thus a complex storage facility like the Underwater Silos, with nearly 2,000 cubic meters of storage space, is exceedingly valuable and commands a large guarding force.
Large scale Ichor storage operations like this exist in a few places across Cathedris, though the Underwater Silos are considered the largest. Most of these storage facilities are under control of one government or the next, as the governments are the ones who pay for and construct the facilities on their own territory. The situation is different in the Shattered Isles though -- the Legion houses the majority of its forces and has its headquarters just a short distance away in Hansun, and thus can exert a lot of control over the Isles. This means the Underwater Silos are controlled by the Legion, something that has caused more than one worried glance towards them.
The facility itself, as per its name, is located entirely underwater. The entrance and exit are hidden from any and all prying eyes, accessible via a long underground tunnel that leads to a seemingly unrelated island. The tunnel is long enough that it actually requires personnel to take a small light-rail vehicle to reach either end of it. Once through the rail ride ends, the tunnel opens up into a large, dark chamber, with yet more tunnels leading off. This chamber is at the deepest point of the ocean surrounding the Shattered Isles, and is made out of the thickest steel and concrete to withstand the pressure at such depths. Inside this main chamber is mostly personal storage and maps -- the Ichor and Catalurgy related rooms are found at the ends of the tunnels.
It's really, really easy to get lost in here. Last new guy was only on site for a day 'fore he went missing. Most say he probably starved to death in the corner of some unused tunnel, but between you 'n me... I think he probably got snatched up and used in some weird Catalurgy experiment.

The Shattered Isles
An Island Nation spread over 33 islands of various sizes, located south of the continent Vir Tenera
and the country of Hansun
. The Isles are home to a people who love to live in tandem with nature -- though this is challenged by the presence of the Legion
, and the sheer numbers of Rendlings
spawned by Dimiti
, the nation's resident God-husk
that occupies Bellrose Island, the northernmost island of the Isles.
A planet wide, multi-nationality militarized force established thousands of years ago in a need to protect humanity from Rendlings
. In more modern times, the Legion has begun to amass more and more power -- despite this, they repeatedly assure the world that they're still neutral to any conflict between countries. Still, more than a little bit of worry has grown, as the Legion is now the strongest military force, and controls the worlds largest stockpile of Ichor.
