Euterpe is a natural satellite of microTech. It is the smallest of microTech's three moons and features vast frozen oceans and exposed ice sheets. From time to time, tips of land jut out from the ice to create a harsh and intimidating plane. Rather than large bodies of land, clusters of islands can be found around the surface, sometimes numbering in the thousands. The islands themselves are just as harsh as the planes of ice that surround them, with sharp, chimney-like rock formations dotted across the plains that hint of a volcanic past.[1]

"Named after the ancient Greek muse of music to supposedly remind those gazing upon the moon from microTech to be 'guided by the natural rhythm of the universe in their designs.'"

"Ha. Ha. Ha ha ha.

I thought I was free. I thought I'd compiled everything I'd need to get a good travel guide together and get paid. I talked up the ice formations. I speculated on the composition of the atmosphere. I waxed poetic about the mist. I even slipped in some jokes about ice skating. Guess who broke her leg while trying to climb one of those chimney-looking rocks?

They'd better cover my medical bills."
