Echonis Augury is an ancient space station located in the Askellon Sector, where it drifts along the Sector's rim and away from regular traffic. It originally served as a major Adeptus Mechanicus research site and hundreds of Tech-Priests and Servitors worked there to info-scour the surrounding parsecs in a secretive quest. Several centuries ago, however, a supply vessel arrived to find the station empty and barren and no sign of what happened to the Tech-Priests. Since then it has become a popular trading post for Rogue Traders and common merchants alike, where thousands now live; with extended generations working to maintain and expand it. All who live there, though, have occasional concerns over the mysterious fate that befell its previous occupants.
