I have gone from a no man with nothing to a galactic citizen of the stars, i crossed over 30 star systems finding those of the Gek, Vy'kreen, and the Kovatch. But through and through i came across a black hole, many feared that the gravity alone is enough to crush any who get sucked in but what they dont tell it what happens after you enter. I thought as i got sucked in that after all my trials since i awoke was at an end, in truth those who dear enter the Black hole have never been able to tell what is on the other side, and that is more star systems. In my brief time within the Black Hole i traveled over 742k light years, i knew as i left its pull that it was not an element of the stars of destruction but a way traveling farther and farther to the center of the galaxy. What is there? Is it a some kind of God? Is it the fabled Earth? one day i will find out but until then i will continue to travel through the Black Holes.

Welcome to the lovely world of Nergal's Taint. This overheated, sack of useless garbage is one of the first Planets i ever discovered. Bright glowing green, full of useless materials and damn near nothing of value. Though misspelled (always spellcheck kids!) I chose to name it after a God of Chaos from Warhammer 40 because truly nothing was more fitting than the taint of elder God of Chaos to describe this sinkhole of a planet.

I had to upload this picture to my Facebook account in order to get in onto my Macbook, just saying incase someone finds this pic and thinks I'm plagiarising someone.

Update: This is the one I meant to upload.

First, I apologize about the shoddy picture, I can't get my PS4 to share somewhere worthwhile, so I did a roundabout way and used my phone.

Now, the scene. This was the third planet I had visited, I was exploring and looking for fuel to complete my hyperdrive. The first world I started on had been a cold and rocky place, daytime, the temperature was -34.5 C, it was like being in some alien version of a frozen forest looked like. Light wasn't that great, and life forms were few and far between. The second I landed on was the opposite, scorching hot, but also red and a barren wasteland. I didn't stick around long before moving on to my third world.

This place is lush, it reminded me of the savanna and light forests of Africa, but I was having a hard time locating the resources I needed. I was about to pack it up and head back to my starting world when I came down a hill into this lush gathering of alien creatures. Some looked like deer with fungus on them, others like dinosaurs. In my mind, I could hear the Jurassic Park theme and I felt like Doctor Grant when he first saw the dinosaurs were in fact real. Just all of these alien animals, gathering at their watering hole, and although the alien deer things were spooked by me walking among them, the larger creatures were not, but all of them were friendly enough to not attack. I could wade in there with my boltcaster holstered, and just study them.

Although this world lacked the fuel supplies I needed, it was lush in life, and I didn't see the need to strip mine it for resources I didn't need. I was a visitor in an alien ecosystem and it existed without me, and will continue to exist as I return to my ship to find more fuel supplies. This is what makes this game worth it, that these worlds can vary, and entire ecosystems are already there, and it's just me and my wits to explore them.
