The Moderatus System

By:

The Moderatus System was interdicted for a good reason.

Named after the systems ill-fated first explorer, few realize that the Moderatus Systems planets hide threats that few space explorers could imagine, much less understand.  Despite the systems status as an Interdicted Zone, renegades and lawless adventurers regularly evade the halfhearted interdiction patrols, drawn by the promise of alien artifacts and technologies.  Some few unfortunates find these things; some of them are even lucky enough to simply be killed.

Commander, were receiving radio-frequency signals from the first, third, and fourth planets in the system.  I cant make them out:  They dont conform to anything in our database.  Isnt this system supposed to be uninhabited?

The Moderatus System has two marginally habitable planets, each one bearing the signs of an advanced alien culture that inhabited the system eons before.  In addition to the two planets within the "life zone" of the star, five other planets and two asteroid belts are visible to sensors.

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
