It has been days, running into weeks at this rate, Lohula. Every single time we think we've escaped those damn bastards track us down again. We gotta get somewhere where they won't follow us.
The Lawless Void is a section of space beyond an isolated WayHall. The void is known to be home to some of the most ruthless criminal gangs that plague the galaxy. They survive off each other, their raids, and the husks of worlds long abandoned. Many are seeking refuge, many have no where else to go, others are there just for the thrill, but everyone in the Void has a reason for being there.
A Space of Villany
Theodore, think about what yer sayin'! We go through to the Void and we are half-likely to be dust the moment we open comms the other side of that Wayhall. Prison doesn't last forever, death does.The Lawless Void is a hive of scum to those who live outside the law. A place where the desperate cling to what freedom their criminal lives have left. Waysairs, murderers, breakers of consent, and other seedy characters rove the Void, planning their next Foray into the space of the Honest. To those who live within the Void, it can be seen as a rendition of Heaven or Hell. There is no law except for strength and cunning above all us. There is total freedom to live as you can. There is a code in the Void, a simple Mantra that only those that survive speak.
Your own above all else.
The GodfatherAny other rules come from the current defacto leader of the Lawless Void. The Godfather is the title for the most notorious and most powerful person in the Void. They typically rule from the Monument, a derelict Waystation now stacked with scrap. Fights to take control of the Monument are constant and brutal, as the person who controls the Monument controls the Void.
Did you not see the fucking missiles they were pounding us with? They aren't going to take us to prison Lohula. We stop, they kill. We get into the Void, we survive. We can hide for a bit, wait for the heat to die down, then we get back out there and do our thing okay? Please, trust me and set our course.
