G - Grey Moon

One of two moons of Ortix, with its synchronous rotation it seemingly resembles Earth’s Moon. Its visible side is grey and almost lifeless (moon’s atmosphere is breathable), except strange, stone like crabs. It don’t have any signs of human activity.

The Dark Side of the Grey Moon is a sinister and dangerous place – covered with magical, eternal darkness, it’s home for many unspeakable horrors – jet-black centipedes, black puddings, dreadful Shadow Wyrms and wraiths and ghosts of those who dare to venture beyond the light. Even vegetation (if they are plants – after all there is no light on the Dark Side) is black, rubbery and very unpleasant in look – even it’s possible that they are predators, hunting its prey with tentacle-like twigs and branches, just like Hug-trees from the Red Moon.

In the “center” of the Dark Side stands immense Bone Portal, which is said to be a link between moon and Forbidden Land of the Dreamlands. Nightgaunts (and possibly other monstrous creatures) often pass through the portal to visit the Dark Side and hunt.

Other rumors says that on the obscure side of the moon can be found ruined city of moonbeasts, but no one was able to return from the Dark Side to confirm it.
