"The Hive Storm is merciless. A monster with a never ending hunger. We dwell here on the edge of the Galaxy, alone. Terra doesn't care; I doubt they even know we exist. We gather against the coming darkness, our temporariness a fact of life. For in the end, the Hive Storm swallows everything."

Caught in the tidal pull of a super massive black hole, the Galoric Sector, or Hive Storm Region is a spiral system cluster in the far south-west of Segmentum Oscurus. Containing little native life, the soul indigenous species being the sadistic Tuho, the sector is home to many Imperial colonies and multitudes of Orkish planetoids and orbitals clinging to life in the asteroid fields of the sectors outer reaches. Further coreward the terrain becomes ever more erratic, as unchecked warp storms clash with subsonic meteor showers, blasting the few habitable zones with a near constant rain of debris. The sectors three tiny stars, little more than cold, dwindling torch specks, are surrounded by dozens of planets and moons, allowing for many colonies and stations; and though many have been lost in the gloom ridden history of the Hive Storm, many more have survived to become isolated, impoverished settlements. The one exception being the bright Intohimo System, which became a shining paradise in the separation of the void darkness, before its fall in the late 41st Millennium during the sector-wide conflict of the Intohimoan War.

M38 - Imperial Discovery

The historical records of the Imperium are rich with half filled files and unfinished reports regarding Landfall expeditions which failed to seed colonies, or those which fell victim to void scavengers. In most cases these sorry tales are remembered only as expense accounts in data storage or short, undrafted expedition manifests left to gather dust in the endless labyrinth of Archivus Terra. But some are remembered still  as a painful lesson to those involved as to the dangers of the untamed galactic wilderness that may forever lay beyond the reach of civilized hands. One such case is in that of the Hive Storm Region, or "Galoric Sector" as it was named by the Imperial rogue trader Daen Galor

Celebrated as one of the most far reaching star trawlers of his time, Daen Galor's announcement in late M38 of his intentions to chart the central northern dark space of Segmentum Obscurus was met with excitement and applaud, as prior to the 38th Millennium no Imperial expedition has managed to penetrate further north than the Carcharaus Void Plains and its warp raging surrounds. Surely a man as experienced as Galor, with his unparalleled skills in warp-tyde navigation was the perfect master mind for an adventure as dangerous and uncertain as this one. The Hive Storm, he vowed would remain uncharted no longer, and with prideful ceremony he made on his way.

Celestial Bodies

The Galoric Sector, due to its close proximity to a black hole, is a relatively small and compact region of space by galactic standards. Where in some places in the universe one could easily travel hundreds of light years in any direction and not hope to come across anything but empty space, in the confines of the Galoric Sector this is not possible at all. In fact it is quite impossible to travel even a few million kilometers without wondering upon some type of celestial map point or another. The Hive Storm itself, being an endless, devouring maw, gathers all within its reach toward it. This results in the region's extremely small size, the black hole's gravitational pull constantly eating up portions of the celestial cluster. 

Due to this, the Hive Storm is prone to sudden and unpredictable changes in gravity, making the few settlements scattered across the sector near inhospitable at the best of times, and thriving colonies impossible. These gravitational fluxes grow ever more prevalent as one travels further inward toward the core. Though these dangers keep the majority of the Human and Ork population camping on the outer edges of the sector, the wily traders and adventurers know of the few (and quite often seasonal) paths into the center of the Storm where it is commonly believed the many strange and wondrous cosmic anomalies create treasures of unprecedented value, and the ruins of dead empires and abandoned colonies are free to be picked over.

Drifters Grave

Main Article: Drifters Grave

"Like a coiled cosmic serpent, the Hive Storm spins in its slow, cold dance. As the dance continues, all things are drawn in; dust, gas, rock, light. The children of Terra, and their homes are consumed, Leaving nothing but shattered remains. Like bubbles circling the plug hole, here they drift in a slowly decaying stability waiting for the end. What lies there in that place is claimed by none, and sought by those of the adventurous breed who believe the few meager treasures that may be found are worth their lives for the attempt. "
