Mare Lamentorum

Though its name may conjure images of the briny deep, this region of the moon is awash with naught but arid basalt. It is far from devoid of interest, however, as the origin and purpose of the apparently artificial structures spotted on its surface have yet to be ascertained.

  Myths serve myriad purposes, but one of the more prominent sorts is cautionary tales. Among such stories, those of Ker may be the most terrifying. It is said that Ker appears on the battlefield to feast upon the souls of the dead, hunting down the living she lays eyes upon unto the ends of the earth. She brings naught but a swift demise to those who dream of glory. If I was to postulate that Ker is not merely mythologica - which I do - she must be some manner of ashkin. Undead, in layman's terms. This would explain how millennia can pass without a sighting... However, legend has it that her 'shrouds' are ever in search of new prey for their mistress, so hope yet remains. Should you glimpse these spirits in reddened rags as you sheathe your own bloodied weapon, pray keep your wits about you...

  Our star shields us from what are doubtless many perils beyond. One need only look to the moon to see that this is - whether the result of scouring sun or the harsh chill of darkness, 'tis a grim and barren face it shows us'. I do believe, however, that certain organisms may be suited to its harsh climes. Myriad fungi, for instance, are deceptively resilient and would doubtless be even more so should they be exposed to trying circumstances for centuries! This brings me to my hypothesis, which is over the course of generations, lunar fungi will have developed the capacity to think! Perhaps ruminate over the meaning of their very existence... Regardless, these sentient fungi will have learned to communicate with one another by now. The ability to alert other members of their colony to incoming danger would be exceptionally useful for survival, after all.

  You are aware that falling stars observed in the night sky are, in fact, meteors formed of stone, metals, and minerals from beyond our star, yes? Though they do often burn to nothing during their journey, some few survive to impact Hydaelyn's surface. When a large meteor collides with the star, an explosive burst results. Now, what do you suppose would happen to seeds buried in the land impacted by a meteor of truly astronomical proportions? Would they, snug in their chunks of earth, not be sent soaring to the surface of the moon? I note your skepticism, but consider the irrepressible nature of seedkin such as the sabotender... Then consider how fascinating it would be if their seeds were to blossom on the moon! Why, such hardy specimens might evolve into true queens among sabotenders nay, lunatenders!

  As one should hope you are aware, summoning a high-ranking voidsent to our plane requires a vast amount of aether be manipulated to tear a hole in the veil betwixt this world and the void. On extremely rare occasion, however, a tear may naturally form, creating a planar fissure from which the likes of low-ranking voidsent, such as the imp, squirm their way into our world. Obviously, this phenomenon must also occur on the moon. Now, without a satisfactory vessel to inhabit on the moon's surface, I am quite certain the voidsent would be forced to dwell in an amorphous lump of lunar soil. The only true question is what to name the resulting specimen...but I think mousse princess sounds rather sweet, don't you?

  Tell me, do you know of the phoebad? 'Tis a natural type of golem born of a surfeit of aether in mineral formations. Its cousins, of course, may be composed of other substances in which aether accretes, such as snow... Thus, it stands to reason that at least one variety of phoebad, or something altogether similar, should exist on the moon! ...On second thought, I mislike the sound of "should" verberating from my lips. Lunar phoebads do exist, as we shall soon prove! Call it premature, but I have named our find the "genesis rock". We may throw it in the faces of those idiot astronomers the moment you deliver my sample.

Ahem! Volcanoes have been found to erupt in pillars of smoke that reach beyond the clouds. Now, suppose an organism of some kind, one capable of withstanding significant heat and pressure, was not only carried aloft by that eruption, but shot beyond our sky... Even if the chances are one in ten thousand or one in one hundred million, or one in a trillion! There need be only a single specimen on the moon to prove my theory. I can see it now...the shape of my dreams incarnate! ...Or invertebrate, as the case may be. Yes, a species of crustacean fully adapted from generations of life on the moon "daphnia magna".
