Game Note: Path engines were a type of specialized hyperdrive that provided incredibly fast hyperspace travel through use of the unorthodox and otherwise inaccessible Paths. Utilized by the Nihil marauder organization during the High Republic Era, the Path engines allowed the Nihil to appear unexpectedly when undertaking raids, giving the marauders a feared reputation. The devices were installed on Nihil starships in addition to normal hyperdrives, connected to the vessels’ engines. Path engines, as well as the Paths that they utilized, were originally provided to the Nihil by Asgar Ro after he positioned himself as the first Eye of the Nihil; after his death, his son, Marchion, took his place.

Background: Cloudships were a class of starship utilized by the Nihil marauder organization. The Cloud Ultident Margrona utilized two Cloudships in a raid on Elphrona, one of which was destroyed by Jedi Master Loden Greatstorm. The other Cloudship was damaged, but escaped, carrying the prisoners Ottoh and Ronn Blythe aboard. Jedi Indeera Stokes rescued Ronn, and Greatstorm boarded the damaged Cloudship to rescue Ottoh. The Nihil Tempest Runner Lourna Dee entered the Cloudship, kidnapping both Greatstorm and Blythe. A number of Cloudships were present at the Battle of Kur against the Galactic Republic, but were easily destroyed when hit.
