Once it was all fable. In each galaxy and on each planet, everyone thought they were alone. Then the first Keyturn happened. Change occurs in a heartbeat. The world is knowable and everything has become mundane -- until suddenly everything is beyond imagination. Keyturns are like that. We think we can map out the universe, that surely we've discovered all there is to know in each of these whirlpools of light, islands of life in vast nothingness. They're known as Keyturns because once a new galaxy is discovered and that door is opened, the things we have locked out of our collective understanding of reality become possible again. The impossible becomes true. That rush of unbelievable fact casts its light inward, and everything around us is bright and new again: foreign and fantastic, perilous and primitive.
As we all know, the Venture do not match in the technology as the other factions, and still rely on conventional weapons. But they do alright.
