Boral was once the home of House Oriens Obscurum, its particularly slow rotation making it an ideal location for protecting the Clan base as no calculations were needed to be made allowing fighters to take-off whenever they were needed.
The moon, while still uninhabitable, has continued with its massive terra-forming project that is slowly transforming the moon into a living and breathing world. Initial testing has begun on a small portion of Boral, the point farthest from Selen and hidden from observers. Self-contained, an atmospheric shield has been created, with newly grown vegetation sprouting up. Currently however, Boral is a large rock, pock-marked with larges craters and jutting spires.
Plans for the terra-forming project will allow Boral to become an agricultural world, allowing Clan Arcona to provide for itself without importing from the outside. Should it flourish, enough may be made to also begin exporting to other worlds in the Dark Brotherhood.
The project itself was the idea of former Proconsul Kaek, seeing the need for another more "stable" planet, completely in the hands of Clan Arcona. With the move of House Oriens Obscurum to Eldar, a simple starport was built close to the initial testing phase, allowing for supplies and equipment to continually be sent down. Temporary housing has been erected near the spaceport for the crews of Wiorkettle, who have been hired to work on the project, as well as housing for DDF fighters.
The project itself is known only to a few within the Clan, but as work quickly moves ahead, it is expected that many others will know of the work being done.
