The Fingers is the name of a large dust cloud nebula in the North-East of the Gulf. It is expansive and stretches from near Ulyssia almost to the eastmost edge of the Gulf. Electronics are prone to failure and it is near-impossible to navigate within the Fingers because of the intense static interference.
A long time favourite hiding spot of orkish raiders and human pirates, the Fingers have recently been annexed by the Tau Expeditionary Fleet after their defeats on Persephone and Ravenforge. They have been slowly recuperating from their losses from the isolated nebula and have recently embarked on a colonization effort for a new sept world, Ivory Rock.
