Hollow Sun is a Necron Tomb World and capital of the Suhbekhar Dynasty. Like many Necron capitals, it is a marvel of arcane super-science the likes of which has not been seen in the galaxy for countless millions of years. No two crown worlds are alike, each reflecting something of the idiosyncrasies of those it was built to inter, but the Hollow Sun is no mere affectation of a monarch intent upon slumbering away the aeons in gaudy splendor. Rather, it reflects the erstwhile genius of the now insane Phaeron Ahmontekh, who upon commissioning its construction knew he was ordering his masons to build the impossible. And the impossible they gave him.[1a][1b][1c][1d]


The Hollow Sun is a necropolis forged deep within the raging center of a star located in the Slinnar Drift of the Outer Reach. Its host protostar bears no sign of the construct within it which is maintained is powerful machinery beyond that of the Adeptus Mechanicus to prevent it being consumed by the stellar core.[1a] Its construction was commanded by the Phaeron Ahmontekh due to his fears that his aeons long sleep would make him vulnerable to his enemies.[1b] This led to a staggering feat of stellar engineering and dimensional engineering made by the Dynasty's masons who bored into the fabric of the core to allow the Necron capital to be held within the sun. The necropolis itself resembles a city as large as any world which remains protected by arcane machines that take more space than the stasis crypts in order to protect it from the fiery inferno of the core by the use of vast systems to siphon the raw power of the entire sun.[1c] Travel from the Necron world comes through the Dolmen Gate located in the central crescent plated Living Metal coated precinct.[1d]


As it slowly awakens, the Hollow Sun is taking its place at the heart of the resurgent empire of the Suhbekhar Dynasty. The rule of the Regent Ahhotekh is as incomplete in the matter of his territory as it is in that of his legions, however, and the location of every single tomb world and other holding in the region is as yet revealed even to him. As with the revivification of his dormant servants, the regent is determined to locate and muster every tomb in which an underling might lay sleeping, and numerous of his most cunning and stealthy warriors are scouring the outer darkness for any and all signs of them. In doing so, they have discovered that others seek the cold tombs of the Necrons too, and a silent war is escalating in the dark places of the Outer Reach.[1a][1b][1c][1d]
