V is for Vortices

Maelstroms of energy interlaced with whirlpools of utter nothingness, the Vortices of the Void are spoken of only in hushed whispers...or, if you frequent precisely the wrong bars, in the slurred, perpetually-intoxicated, muttering half-shouts of those few who have seen them and lived.

While most Navigators consider the Vortices to be readily identifiable and avoidable hazards, there is a small but steady stream of adventurous challengers who attempt to traverse this treacherous and deadly region, ranging from those who enjoy courting death (many of whom find their advances accepted more quickly and completely than they had actually planned) to those who believe, against all evidence to the contrary, that the Vortices of the Void hold the secret of creating the next Jakkar Instability.
