Description[edit | edit source]
Features[edit | edit source]
The Construction Yard is a massive Nomai structure consisting of multiple connected ringed walkways, equipped with gravity panels, which can be walked on to traverse the island's numerous stations. The outskirts of the island contains a gravity pad for parking the ship easily and cyclone shelters for when the island is thrown into orbit by a cyclone.
The Nomai writing scattered throughout details the history of the Orbital Probe Cannon's construction, building parts, and using the planet's natural cyclones to send them into orbit. Notably, the Nomai Daz had lowered the energy recommendation for the cannon knowing fellow Nomai Mallow will raise the setting either way.
At some point during construction, one of the cannon components was lost under the planet's current, something originally not thought possible. To investigate, the Nomai researched the phenomenon on the Southern Observatory on Brittle Hollow. The Cannon itself was ordered not to launch while the Nomai were alive, due to the failure of the Sun Station, and was put on indefinite hiatus.

Construction Yard[edit | edit source]
|Giant's Deep's current
CASSAVA: Conoy, Daz and I were lifting Orbital Probe Cannon components into orbit for assembly, and one somehow sank down down(sic) beneath the current.
Orbital Probe Cannon finished
CASSAVA: This is it: We’ve finished building the final Orbital Probe Cannon module and are ready to send it into orbit around Giant’s Deep for assembly!
Orbital Probe Cannon put on hold
CASSAVA: I have bad news, Avens. Yarrow says there was a problem with the proposed power source, so the Orbital Probe Cannon won’t be asked to fire.
Rumors[edit | edit source]
- This island is where the Nomai built the Orbital Probe Cannon.
- For some reason, the Nomai put the Orbital Probe Cannon on indefinite hiatus. The cannon was not asked to fire.
- According to a Nomai computer, a long-range probe was recently launched from the Orbital Probe Cannon.
