Overview

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.

Geography

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.

Local Groups

Elder Greens

CompQ5

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.

Nuuafooraes

Also known as New Growth, this local group features the densest section of Matriarch Grove, with celestial bodies at times being close enough to share water vapors. This area is called New Growth as it sports many of the youngest communities, or rather youngest and most freshly grown trees, including some of the large communal trees meant to surround or grow over non-Quarryn structures.

Withered Woods

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 Matriarch 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.

Eaalaaem

Eaalaaem, like Withered Woods and Elder Greens features many old trees of Matriarch Grove, but most are still alive unlike the other two local groups. The name appears to be related to the large insectoid creatures called Laaem that are native to the area and only found in this part of Omneutta. Like some other local groups across Omneutta, the word for the area predates the modern form of the language currently used by the Sentient Species, and its full meaning has been lost to time.
