Musical rendering from ‘Environmental Atmospheres’
Quarryn-Space is often referred to as Matriarch Grove, in honour of the Deity Quarrnyl. According to the Ontiba, it was one of the first places in Omneutta devoted to housing life. The dense section in the middle of Quarryn-Space is home to over half of the Quarryn in Omneutta, with the rest of Matriarch Grove and The Known Universe containing the other half.
Light hills and small mountains are covered across most of Matriarch Grove by dense forests. Rivers constantly ferry fresh water across landmasses, where there are minimal seas. Very little exists other than dense forest, due to a lack of elevation change.
The Elder Greens can be found to the north-east of the center of Matriarch Grove. They are a local group comprised of the oldest star-planets and planet-stars in Omneutta other than Astran. The Quarryn communities of the Elder Greens are growing older and sparser as time passes, with young Quarryn seeking more opportunities on flourishing forests. The tree-homes of these communities are far larger and more spread out than newer planet-stars, and as a result, entire communities can fit in some trees.
The Withered Woods face many of the same problems as the Elder Greens such as lack of population. The Withered woods can be found in the far south-west of Matriarchal Grove, closest to Parallelium. The dormant shells of many tree-houses remain, and not all rivers run dry. With the help of some Quarryn acting in the spirit of Quarrnyl, new types of flora grow in the Withered Woods that do not occur elsewhere in Quarryn-Space.
