Another View of 'What is Urutsk?'

Urutsk is this:

Everything looks Sci-Fi on the surface, but the ACClarke adage, 'Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.', is the underlying premise, and there are things out in space which do not meet the Humanocentric organisational aesthetic of machines working towards the weal of society, and are therefore Monstrous, and Chaotic, in a Lovecraftian sense.  Dreamlands Space with Arthurian Humanosphere ('The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.'), Monstrous Cultures outside of that which cater to Human Warlocks, and then we have the Others which intrinsically threaten both ('Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.').
