Things to See, Places to Go (1)

Olkómac Crater: An unusually large, multi-lobed crater on the moon of Bir-Liahs (Sea of Stars), the homeworld of the linobir. Olkómac is not an impact crater; rather, it was formed during a parlay between five competing linobir clan-heads, in which each of the parlayers chose to betray the others by sending a disposable representative armed with a nuclear warhead, unaware that each of the others had elected to do the same.

Characteristically for the linobir, while this story is still told today in the Disarchy as a morality tale, the moral of the story is invariably given as “So be sure to strike first.”
