The Koronus Expanse is the name given by Imperial authorities to a dangerous unexplored region of the Halo Stars beyond the Calixis Sector.
The Koronus Expanse – Imgur
The Expanse is accessed through the Koronus Passagea treacherous but navigable route through the great warp storms that bar the passage to the Halo Stars beyond the way station of Port Wander. As is true of the Calixis Sector itself, the Expanse was untouched by the God- Emperor ‘s Crusade many millennia ago and so it is a realm of fearsome xenostreasures beyond imagining, heathen worlds of men, and the echoes of the ancient doom.
The Koronus Expanse in the 41st Millennium is a scattered, partly explored region containing a few young colonies and vast natural wealth still barely explored.
Drawn by the flow of wealth, pirates and servants of Dark Gods have also slipped into the Expanse, eager to cast destruction upon the works of the God-Emperor’s faithful, living by what they wrest from dead hands, while the Expanse itself holds many secrets and native inhabitants no less dangerous.
Beyond these human conflicts lie truly dark and dangerous voids, rife with rumoured terrors, undiscovered stars, and worlds of man who have never known the God-Emperor. There are no defined warp-routes, no safe ways through the swirling empyrean. These regions hold the fearsome Orkthe treacherous Eldarand strange ruins that lie beneath the light of dying stars.
For centuries, Rogue Traders have braved great evils and the treacherous warp to venture into the Koronus Expanse, but their efforts have barely begun to uncover its secrets.
Footholds have been built close to the few semi-stable warp routes into the area. Here, resources-rich worlds are exploited, xenos ruins, trade envoys meet with heathen lords, and colonies are attempted upon sheltered worlds.
This effort has been enough to shower wealth and korojus upon the fortunate and make corpses of the rest.
The gateway to the Expanse is littered with broken vessels and tales of the vanished. The warp space of the Koronus Expanse is treacherous and unknown in the main, and partially explored regions of the Expanse are islands of Imperial activity admist a vastness of danger and myster.
The Koronus Expanse
Navigating is a far cry from traversing the established warp routes of the Calixis Sector. Most of the Koronus Expanse is known to the Imperium only through legend, revelation, and hearsay. The Rogue Trader who ventures into this unknown risks his very soul upon the talent of his Navigatorand on quality of what little information he has gleaned from those gone before.
Beyond the partly explored regions of the Koronus Expanse, past deeps beset by pirates and dread xenos, lie many worlds and strange phenomena which exists as the stuff of dark legend.
Some of these uncharted stars were visited by a single Rogue Trader whose tales are doubted and dismissed by rivals as outright lies, while others are known only from dubious and apocryphal sources such as Thulean data-vaults recovered from Dolorium’s voids in M41, ,oronus the infamous okronus visions of the Seven Witches of Footfall.
Other fragments of contradictory lore relating to these dark zones are culled from even more untrustworthy sources, such koronud the muted astropathic whispers overheard on the warp’s twisted eddies, the falsehoods of the deceitful Eldar, or the ancient myths of heathen worlds given over to darkness for millennia uncounted.
Such areas are only labeled only as “Here be monsters” on ancient charts, where only the foolhardy of insane would venture to seek their destiny.
