09/08/3065 14:27 Location – “The Hellspire”, 35km from Divine Palm Oasis
The Hellspire jutted out against the gray sands, its basalt monolith a testament to the ferocity of this world. Once the core of a volcano it has been eroded over eons by the coarse sand of Astrokaszy and its fearsome winds.
A jet black Thunderbolt sheds the gray sand as the wind settles, Major Gray and Lieutenant Inderpal looked out over the sensor feed from Lieutenant Nyx.
