The Empora Spiralem

The Empora Spiralem


Their vestiges are profound, their sepulchre's infinite, their star’s songs sorrowful - for these ancient progeny have paid a horrendous and terrible consequence for the rebellion and heresy of their forbearers. The Father of All. The Black Phoenix.

460 readers have visited The Empora Spiralem since AtraLamia_Darkbane created it.


Our Dark Sphere's Sing Of Sorrow.

History: [I]In the shadows of the Obsidian Temples of Western Ayenee, from which the ‘Old Ones’ have long withdrawn their blessings. They pursue their parent darkness and stars like somnolent, wounded embryos struck helpless and bloodied, caught between death and rebirth, forgetful and yet mindful of their crimes.

The Da'knatt-Nacha system teems with worlds, gas giants, huge, globular masses (Voidic miscarriages that failed to be born into stars), and many other variations that are ‘harvested’ for countless purposes. Da'knatt-Nacha in itself is a sentient unfathomable formless mass, an extremely violent anomaly with its seismic oily-tides torn from the primal fabric of the infinite ‘Outer Darkness’- birthed by the Ever-Consuming, Sathl-Cthanyogth [The Devouring Black-Flame].

The Empora Spiralem itself is constructed of over 100 star systems, interconnected dark tapestries synchronized with the 'Dark Web' [Voidic threads], it has no technology nor is it "claimed space".

This system teems with worlds, gas giants, huge, globular masses (Voidic miscarriages that failed to be born into stars), and many other variations that are ‘harvested’ for countless purposes.

The system itself is a sentient unfathomable formless mass, an extremely violent anomaly with its seismic oily-tides torn from the primal fabric of the infinite ‘Outer Darkness’ or 'Oblivion'. Birthed by the Ever-Consuming, Magnum Tenebrosum (Father of Darkness) and the Goddess known as Ayenee, among other appellations. And is why none have been able to access the system from more advanced systems and civilizations (to date).

Suns: Vhlorrha

A monstrous stellar anomaly seen from the planet itself. It is described as a black sun/spectral sun or black halo (a phantom corona), portending nothing but nightmarish revelations that whispers in apocalyptic terms of a "living darkness" that will devour all worlds and all civilizations.

Its engulfing blackish flame gradually transmutes aesthetically “coherent” minds preparing them to embrace the all-devouring darkness. Many believe this to be an obvious sign of the resurrection of the Elder Gods.

Most often, Vhlorrha actually eclipses another celestial body, as if possessing it, causing consternation and terror as the hellish obsidian shroud completely asphyxiates within its noxious black smoke, many of the older orders of Mages and Oracles worship this auspicious sun, and incorporate it into their ceremonies and rituals, even offering blood magick/sorcery and human sacrifice in mass proportions.

Ayenee, is orbited by several moons. Mitha, Tulzschoa and Ath-Llacha being the largest closest to the planet. However most are not natural satellites of the womb; vomited from the abyss or some hellish dimensional reality through the dark tapestries and primordial gates.

These are typically located at the poles of the world, however move with a haunting “life” due to the highly erratic and unpredictable orbits (fitting to that of frozen void/crystallized primal darkness or some Outer God imprisoned in its stone-like coffers).Not to mention the howling coercions of the ravenous void that sings to them through the swarming gases of nebula’s and stygian vapours.

Those who have attempted to study these ominous sentinels in close detail, usually go mad, as the light of the moon (focused through a “fixed source”) is enough to cause insanity, mutations and even death. Black crystalline meteorites (single-body and showers) occasionally fall upon the worlds in which they govern. While some of these may be new ejecta from voidic gates and yawning rifts, many of them are likely fragmentary bodies left over from oblivion.

The largest of the foreign moons, Ath-Llacha considerable more unstable than the others, due to its volatile nature as well as its unusual orbit, periodically shedding cinder-like residues which descends like glistening black jewels on the worlds below.

Lore: Every culture within the Western Regions of Ayenee (The Tribal's and the Barbarians) has been influenced by the lunar manipulations of their womb, for good or ill. The more religious societies of the Imperium see these outside “gifts of the Outer Gods” as ones of blight and treated with mistrust and suspicion. Despite the peculiar trajectory of Ath-Llacha and it’s “children”, there are certain times when all three are more prominent in the sky; usually times of misfortune and also when it is believed the forces of oblivion have a greater grip upon the world.

Some sects and cults worship these aspects of the moon, seeing it as a manifestation of one of their primitive Gods.


Cu'lta O'thhug ‘The Corpse Stars’: A constellation of half-dead ancient stars located on the far Western fringes (outer edge) of Ayenee They symbolize ‘Corpse Gates’ and the gigantic phoenix-like flames that light the pass into 'Oblivion'. Believed to be the oldest stars in the system with a and circumference in total that extends for approximately 500,000 light years around the Elysium Spiral and Onyx Galaxy, encircled by vehement voidic storms, and amalgamated within a shroud of dark matter, and translucent hues of purple intermixed with sanguine specks of smaller luminaries known to extend beyond the visible disk of the galaxy for several hundred thousand light years. These stars are older than most can comprehend, and are characterized by obscurity and peril.

The atmosphere changed, becoming more animated- like a black night beneath myriad burning stars, staring into the billowing rays of a dancing aurora of ‘living’ visceral blackness and writhing phantasmal holocaust. Upon the heights of an immense plateau sat a black citadel of wicked design, a central spire of dull ebony dominated the weird structure, whose architecture was like none had ever laid witness to, even the most widely travelled voyager outside the first of the wombs, and the darkest of the deepest tapestries.

Ziggurats, pyramids, and faceted domes of unpolished black stone rose toward the raging sun like a scar of pestilence. Great black gates swing slowly open, while a host of blinded and cloaked figures walked in solemn procession over the far lip of the plateau and stumbled one by one into the gaping maw of darkness, like rotted pilgrims entering the halls of salvation. Never-ending. Hot breezes bore the sounds from beyond distant dunes, something that sounded more like screams from perishing stars and suffocating suns.

Power was nothing but a gesture in the face of it as the chants of the soon to be dead sung with the dying stars, "Focarakk kraavark, ovodam! Oir ruirk uk mesrs roqa suma, omd sodam aeuir dordaks kaork, omd raks aeui rara, omd sra Sim es kremak ku craor!" ["Faceless sleepers, awaken! Our hours of night have gone, and taken your darkest fears, and left you here, and the Sun it shines so clear!"]

Melanoid was the ascending disc, looming over the charred onyx obelisks. Its shadowy mass reminiscent to obsidian wings creeping towards the pit of the dedicates, and the darkness that existed within its chasms, revealing with it, sentient tides of darkness. It’s solar orb, swollen and bloated as if the suckled blood of sacrificial offertories were its hapless prey beneath the starless choking sky. Throngs of screaming multitudes scooped in vast clawed hands, deposited in the gaping maw of a vast, gargantuan mass.

Monolithic claws plucked each life, meager morsels given yet bore no true gratification, the primordial hunger would never know any definition of. Great, black, onyx-like eyes gazed over its dominion with an ephemeral gulf-spawned rapaciousness as they were devoured. Squatting corpulent over the nebulous veils of the galaxy, horrid tongue spilling hungrily from its vast maw and lifting the forms of god, kings and priests alike to its numberless maws.
