Orbiting the world of Cathan is a large metallic object: a Solonite temple (more like a space station). The Solonites use this 'station' as a place to experiment out of the way of prying eyes. It is also a place of solitude for Solonite monks. However, the existence of this 'station' is only relevant for the background to the adventure. This is because a pirate spelljammer ship attempts to attack it and is promptly shot down by their superior weapons. The ship crashes just outside of Merodac along the eastern coast.
