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: Stormships were a class of vessel utilized by the marauder group known as the Nihil. Eye of the Nihil Marchion Ro organized for a Stormship to be sent on a Path that intercepted the route taken by the freighter Legacy Run. Ro’s actions intentionally caused the Great Hyperspace Disaster, in which the Legacy Run, attempting to avoid the Stormship, came apart in hyperspace.
