Nodershan Kone (known amongst some travelers as Wormvine for its excessive number of Angervines and Palateworms inhabiting the world) is the first planet in the Uthcar-Adl System, found within known Gek space. It is an inconsequential, "backwater" Overgrown Planet located within the Ospeleshv Fringe along the edge of the Euclid Galaxy. Flora originating from this planet, including the metamorphic Starmortar, has pollinated other planets.

With few colonists and high sentinel activity, the conflict level is considered to be perilous to the average traveler. Despite this, squadrons of merchants escort one another across the surface and occasionally land when they see other explorers along the way. The conflict on-world is not between the Gek and other sapients — it is between the colonists and the Sentinel presence.


Nodershan Kone is a moonless planet in the Uthcar-Adl System. It has a low radiation and toxicity level of 0.3 rad and 2.8 tox, respectively. However, superheated rain storms are extremely common, rapidly increasing the temperatures in the area to fatal levels for most travelers every few minutes, requiring them to take shelter to prevent extermination.


A mere two galactic years after the Loranche explorer Somarinoa first set foot upon the planet, the ecosystem suffered a devastating food web collapse. This miniature but significant extinction event is still fresh in the minds of the planet's few inhabitants and no in-depth study has been greenlit yet.

It is believed to be attributed to several factors across the planet that pushed the ecology beyond its limits; the main factor is two epidemics (a large spread of the Coymeleon rabies virus and the Lamadi skin disease jumping across several species) that merged into one pandemic that placed too much strain on a number of important species and then was spread globally thanks to large packs of herd animals. However, this did not actually affect aquatic species who also suffered extinctions. It was initially believed that a number of Nodershan Walkingfish had contracted both diseases and returned to the water to lay their eggs and spread the pandemic thusly, reports of massive creatures known as Abyssal Horrors in the waters is now thought to be the actual primary reasoning behind the aquatic collapse. Some local Geks have also placed some blame on Somarinoa himself, stating that he or his domesticated gekdog pet from Ilongoqungo may have accidentally brought over some viral agent on their persons that the Nodershans had no immunity towards.

Of the species, it is interesting to note that neither the Bindpimeas nor the Jakkhanas suffered a single death caused by the pandemic, at least that any sapients witnessed and recorded. Occam's razor suggests that this is due to both species' known psychic capabilities, with Bindpimeas being telepathic through a sort of hive mind and being able to warn one another about the danger, and Jakkharas being a sort of clairvoyant to know what was happening before it happened.

The process of events is as follows:

  1. Large meteor shower hits the planet; current anecdotal evidence suggest this brings about the Abyssal Horrors as an invasive species. At the time of the event, few take notice of the shower and none recognize the potential threat.
    1. Abyssal Horrors begin feeding, dropping lifeform numbers by a cumulative amount as they continue to grow in size. Those in aquatic environments burrow into submerged caves and feed primary upon shoals of Nodershan Trufflefish. Those that make landfall use the numerous sky pillar mesas as makeshift hives, hollowing them out and emerge into caverns where they mostly feed on Grabgii.

      The "Ship Siblings" would sit for months together before the Hyper Son FI1 would be taken by an Ankoku survivor.

  2. Loranche hero-turned-explorer Somarinoa first sets foot on the planet alongside his pet gekdog, Bark. The two may or may not have brought extranodershannial ailments with them to the planet which the ecoysystem would have no immunity towards. Evidence in favor of this is non-existent, but has been suggested via educated guesswork.
  3. After a short period of exploration, Somarinoa and Bark enter cryosleep. Their current ship, the Final Daughter KS3, has a faulty stasis pod system and the timer fails to go off correctly, setting them on a course of sleep for two whole galactic years.
  4. Jakkhanas abandon the safety of multiple-species herds and flee to parts unknown; their clairvoyant nature is in truth an heirloom cellular memory, hinting that the Coymeleon Rabies Plague epidemic has happened before at some point in the past.
  5. Coymeleon rabidity state accelerates exponentially, ultimately leading to more infected bites from them that transfers their rabies onto any other creature in their vicinity.
  6. The Coymeleon Rabies Plague Epidemic begins. Many species are affected.
    1. Bindpimeas notice the chaos occurring and communicate telepathically. They move as a whole to nest upon the sky pillar mesas dotting the landscape.
  7. Lamadis are affected by the Coymeleon Rabies Plague in growing numbers and begin biting any species that crosses their path. Some of those that survive the encounters get the skin disease that the Lamadis are known for. This begins to transfer alongside the rabies, transforming the epidemic into a two-prong plague.
  8. Large herd fauna begin to unintentionally spread the plague much further than it would have otherwise traveled as the migration season hits. Thus officially starts the Food Web Collapse as important species begin to die off in rapid succession.
  9. Local Gek colonists take notice of the extinction event and put forth many galactic credits to hire mercenaries to help try and stop the pandemic. Despite this, not enough take the job offer and they are unable to keep on top of it. Desperate measures are mulled around.
  10. The once-extremely common shoals of Nodershan Trufflefish have dwindled to small pockets, which greatly concerns those colonists who live off of the ocean for sustenance. It is initially thought that Nodershan Walkingfish are traveling back into the sea and biting the creatures, though this turns out to be insignificant with most individuals instead having been consumed by Abyssal Horrors, which the Gek have no knowledge of.
  11. While the local Geks decide what to do, the Grabgius, Hammerhead Tsarscoop, Nodershan Walkingfish, and numerous other species become critically endangered.
  12. Pressures are heavy on the Grabgius, which are driven from their burrows by Abyssal Horrors only to contract the plague in droves. The Grabgius goes extinct in the wild. Luckily, a few hundred had been removed from the wild some years prior in an attempt to begin domesticating them for the lucrative galactic pets market.
  13. The bottom of the food web drops out from under it and hundreds of species go extinct in a matter of a few months. Many of the bodies are not recovered and mysteriously disappear, presumably consumed by the ever-growing Abyssal Horrors.
  14. Realizing how bad the collapse has gotten, several specimens of the Coymeleon, Hammerhead Tsarscoop, and Lamadi are taken into custody for study. Young members of these species are put into stasis. Hired hands collect eggs of Nodershan Trufflefish and Walkingfish to place into stasis, as well.
  15. The crew of the Ronsal-Agjy Base on the planet Kobastl Tau decide to leave post under AI observation and travel together to the last known planetary location of their boss, Somarinoa, to see what has become of him. Gek Overseer Julkataaj, Korvax Scientist Krom, and Vy'keen Corporal Kenqiul reach the planet after hitching a ride on a line of cargo vessels.
  16. Wild Coymeleons are put down in droves to prevent further spread of rabies. This puts intense strain upon the species and after three months it goes extinct in the wild.
  17. The plague begins to slow down with the extinction of the Coymeleon, but the strain is still existent as the plague runs its course in its remaining victims, as well as their own victims. The plague continues through the winter and dwindles out by spring, but not before the Hammerhead Tsarscoop and Nodershan Walkingfish also go extinct in the wild.
  18. In late spring, the last known wild Lamadi is shot by Corporal Kenqiul as it attempts to attack Overseer Julkataaj, nearly ending in his demise. Shaken and with Somarinoa missing for well over a year at this point with no evidence of his fate being found, Julkataaj suggests they return home. They reluctantly do so.
  19. By early winter, Somarinoa's stasis pod aboard the Final Daughter finally times out and he awakens to a heavily-changed world.

At this point, 60% of the fauna on the planet had been wiped out. Only a handful of species were successfully collected to hopefully reintegrate back into the food web at some point in the future.

Name Height / Weight Discoverer Description
Abyssal Horror

Somarinoa The Abyssal Horror is massive yet mysterious myriapod-like organisms found extending their heads into submerged caverns, with the rest of their bodies burrowed away into the substrate. Normally dormant, they detect passing lifeforms and awaken, shining their singular bioluminescent eye in their direction.

Only one physical encounter was ever recorded by explorers and they took out the creature from a distance, so the beings' threat level has not been properly assessed.

It is unknown if it is related to any other species found on Nodershan Kone, though anecdotal evidence notes similarities between it and the "Underground Demon" X-56V Diorumu formerly found inhabiting the planet Zebes, before its destruction.

(Esperpteryx bindpimea)

Somarinoa Bait: None; cannot be baited

Gender(s): Unknown

Behavior: Wise

Diet: Oxide elements

Notes: Telepathic

Nodershan Kone Armored Clam.jpg
(No classification given yet)

Somarinoa The Clampermaw is a species of gigantic, bivalve-like organisms found dotting the coastal waters off of Nodershan Kone's oceans. They produce pearls that glow a deep purple hue in the red waters they inhabit.
(Ambichamaeleocyon pativolum)

Somarinoa The Coymeleon is an uncommon species of impulsive carnivores that focus on scavenging whenever possible. They are naturally hydrophobic, carrying a strain of konevirus that induces rabies-like symptoms; it is this that leads to their impulsiveness. They are genderless and breed via parthenogenesis.

It was a victim of the Food Web Collapse Extinction Event and is now considered extinct in the wild. Its rabid nature is thought to have been a contributing factor in the extinction event.

Somarinoa Bait: Enzyme Fluid

Gender(s): Symmetric / Non-uniform

Behavior: Friendly

Diet: Silicates

Notes: Frequently regurgitates

(Ratelmimus duskeymii)

Somarinoa Dusklites are a species of burrowing carnivores most notable for their somehow-gelatinous bones. They possess orthogonal genders.

Found primarily on the grassy plains of planet Nodershan Kone. The flesh of these creatures is poisonous to most other species. They have no natural predators, and hunt totally unafraid. Ill-equipped to compete with large animals, they choose to prey upon smaller foes. Rodents, insects, nitrogen-rich plantlife — anything unlikely to fight back.

They are believed to be related to the Grabgius.

The name "Ratelmimus" means "honey badger mimic".

(U. mouldsicii)

Somarinoa Root Structure: Parasitic

Nutrient Source: Carnivorous

Notes: Parasitic leaves

Primary Element: Marrow Bulb

(Hoggopsis grabgius)

Somarinoa The Grabgius is a common burrowing species of watchful herbivores that primarily feed on star bramble. They have two genders: The primes, which does all the breeding, and the secondaries, who are asexual neutrals until it is needed for them to mature into sexual primes. Interestingly, they have been discovered to be scared of mirrors.

It was a victim of the Food Web Collapse Extinction Event and is now considered extinct in the wild. Luckily, they had been being bred for domestication on the galactic pet market and thus survived the collapse.

They are believed to be related to the Dusklite.

(Konetik lamadidiae)

Somarinoa The Lamadi is a common species of nervous scavengers. Despite their intimidating appearance, they are afraid of many species larger than them and are dirty creatures that scavenge as much of their needed nutrients from the coprite droppings of other species. They are covered in skin parasites that can easily transfer to other creatures, causing bad skin irritation. They utilize a prime, sexually mature gender that rules over secondaries that are unable to breed until a chemical signal goes off that lets them begin to mature into primes.

It was a victim of the Food Web Collapse Extinction Event and is now considered extinct in the wild. Its skin diseases and the ease of its spread is thought to have been a contributing factor in the extinction event.

Nodershan Trufflefish.jpg
Nodershan Trufflefish
(K. galoenusium)

Somarinoa The Nodershan Trufflefish is a common species of fish-like creature adapted to life in large bodies of water. Their gender is not outwardly noticeable and requires dissection to confirm, which of course kills the creature in doing so. They may travel in loose shoals of their own kind but lead lonely existences, not interacting with the others beyond mating. They dig for tubers to eat using their long rostrums. Because their eyes are eaten by some other species, they can regenerate their damaged eyes after about a month.

It was thought to be a victim of the Food Web Collapse Extinction Event though it is now thought that they were fed upon in large quantities by Abyssal Horrors living in submerged cavern systems dotting the oceans. It is now considered extinct in the wild, though the vastness of the ocean and the few explorers on the planet make it difficult to tell the accuracy of this claim.

Nodershan Walkingfish.jpg
Nodershan Walkingfish
(Niobeurodela brickobelae)

Somarinoa The Nodershan Walkingfish is an uncommon species of vigilant-yet-fragile skinned creatures which wander the wet environments of the planet seeking oxide elements to supplement their dietary needs. They are genderless and breed via spawning, first releasing eggs into a body of water and then seeking out another body of water to fertilize the eggs of others of their species.

It was a victim of the Food Web Collapse Extinction Event and is now considered extinct in the wild.

Microscopic to the size of an average human hand Somarinoa Living, amoebic slime colony-organism that is known to feed on electrical circuitry. Considered a pest species. Rythmically thrums as if it has a makeshift heartbeat.
