Translator’s Note: This tale of Orbis Senestos derives from 3d Empire sources culled from the datacache in the caves at Constantin. During the 3d Empire, those who suffered to be born in a place were usually condemned to remain there, since the power to ferry man among the stars was as yet highly circumscribed. The location of Orbis Senestos is uncertain, though Thane’s Redoubt (in the third system of the Three White Virgins) has been suggested. The translator supplies the aphorism from I’kyun (4th Emp.).
