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.

Ships entering the system will note several unusual features on their initial scans.

Rural Mystery

       By: Murometz

The PCs are making their way from village to village across a rural hinterland, when they spot a weird sign along a farmstead's fence, with an arrow pointing to the actual farmstead.

"CRAZY DANCING HOES!!"

If they investigate, a rather sedate local farmer, explains to them that for a mere two coppers, they can witness the show for themselves.

The show involves six ordinary, animated hoes "dancing" on a makeshift stage, as the farmer accompanies them by slapping his thighs to keep the beat, and playing on his flute.

If asked how the trick is accomplished the farmer demurs, not wanting to share his "secret".

"If you can get Old Man Purkiss to tell you how he gets his cows to spout poetry, I'll tell you how I make my hoes dance."

In reality, this minor encounter can lead to the PCs discovering that some localized, magical effect is active in the area. All kinds weird phenomena seem to occur in these parts.

Perhaps the PCs have finally found the ley-line of mana energy that they have been searching for! The party's wizard gets excited.
