Past the Edge of Darkness
Hive Tarsus is Scintilla’s second largest population center and is the seat of the planet’s trade and commerce. It maintains an aggressive independent from Hive Sibellus. Though it relies on the export produce of Sibellus’s manufactories. Hive Tarsus is in the center of Scintilla’s least hospitable desert, baking in the relentless sun and battered by sandstorms. The hive’s construction is based around a foundation of immense vertical bars, between which stretch the great conglomeration of buildings that make up the body of the hive. As a result, Hive Tarsus is more vertical than horizontal, with more middle hivers climbing to work than walking.
