Due to sub-spacial disruptions, traditional hypernetworks do not
work in Chunky Space. The solution is Chunk Net. Chunk Net is
a communications network run by the six signatories to the
Chunky Space Pact(CSP). Each polity has a repeater station
within Chunky Space itself. This allows the signal to be beamed
around anomalies to the substations within Chunky Space.
It is still a constant struggle to keep the network operational
with spacial disruptions, abyssal leakage* and digital devil attacks
making service sporadic at best. Still, it’s better than nothing. Chunk net can be
found in all six major ports and many of the minor ones.
Glimmeer - One of two video hosting sites on Chunk Net.
Famous for its louche and Capricious fanbase.
Violence, chaos and shanfraude are popular subject matters.
Castr - A video hosting site that caters to explorers.
The user base loves videos of strange creatures, odd phenomena
and new discoveries.
Gruber - A Site for insect farmers to post pictures of their herds and swap tips.
There is a peer to peer marketplace function that is rumoured to have a robust blackmarket section.
As the story goes, illicit deals are arranged in plain view, obscured by opaque farmer’s argot.
Morbidd - A job posting site for mercenary work
. Used by the CSP to coordinate their privateers.
Currently the CSP is focused on hunting down the house of Oth
raiders that have been plaguing Chunky Space
Travapedia - More formally known as Trav Ulteer, the Wiki Saint.
The site is a post singularity intelligence that correlates user reports
about chunky space into a usable database. Notorious for walling off
forbidden information from users not in the good graces of the Sophonic
Advent. It is still the best source of information about the history and
mysteries of Chunky Space.
AbyssPics - A hobbyist site dedicated to discussing and chronicling
the Digital Abyss intruding into various electronic systems. Despite
the name, the site doesn’t host any actual pictures of the Abyss, as
captured media of Abyssal leakages has a habit of turning into
Abyssal leaks. Instead the site hosts artist interpretations and first hand
accounts. The site is home to many self styled Abyssal experts, including
a number of entities claiming to be digital devils themselves. The’re probably
The Storm Cast - A daily broadcast from eccentric human net personality
Hars Homald aboard the Storm Tossed, a dimensional trawler engaged in
a long term research mission. Gives updates and warnings on dimensional
anomalies and the flow of astral currents. Notoriously unreliable due to
dimensional bleed. It’s hard to tell if any given broadcast is actually coming
from your dimension. Still very popular among Spacers working in Chunky space
*The Digital Abyss is an astral current found in Chunky Space. Unlike many
other currents it affects digital and electronic signals. Abyssal leakages allow
dangerous astral life forms access to conventional reality.
