Ancient ruins of highly advanced spacefarers
The Reach is the only vestige of an advanced civilization found during exploration. It is the ruins of a gigantic structure, thought to be a space elevator. The base is still in one piece, but above twenty meters the whole cylinder is shattered into a million metal pieces hanging in the air, trapped by a lost anti-gravity technology. The magnetic track at the bottom of the elevator is intact and may be functional if powered again, given the fitting source of energy is determined. Made out of a metal not found anywhere else on the planet, it seems that the material played a key role in preserving the structure from overgrowth.
I'm nearing the anomaly reckoned yesterday. I really hope there's something, this dimension is the epitome of boredom so far. I should be in sight just over the hill. Damn bushes, now let's see- what the hell is that?
The outskirts of Avalon's Reach are filled with ruins of lesser size, way less preserved. The buildings of what probably looked like a modern city are half-grounded. Made out of more conventional materials, they did not take the ordeal of time quite well. Far less interesting than the main buildings, they are left out as a playground for aspiring archeologists.
What's in a name?
The island of Avalon is allegedly the deads' repose in Celtic mythology. Upon discovering this majestuous but destroyed space elevator, Zayn pictured the tale of people leaving their planet for a place of eternal rest between the stars. Although this first theory has been disproved since the name stayed.
