Landmarks in Eastern Reach
A classic example of scavenged materials used for Scar purposes, the Burrow is the heavily fortified entrance to their nest, which was (at the time of printing this book) found directly within.
-From A History Of Scars by Hanni Blythe
Convector Henge (Mining Platform)
This now dormant Shaper relic juts out of the earth like walls arranged in a large circular pattern. It became active around 250 L.V. and is thought to be connected to water boiling in the nearby water source, The Bowl. The Scar Luminary known as Junkhead undertook efforts to unearth this relic, but was defeated. Freelancers silenced the relic and it has not been active since.

Lore for Eastern Reach
They're building in the Breach again, their favorite place. Maybe that's because this is where they first started, you know? Like it's home... someone's going to have to go in there and stop it. Too bad there aren't enough Freelancers around...
– Transcript, Sentinel records
After the terraces were destroyed, Fort Tarsis decided to be more proactive managing Scar swarms. A combined force of Sentinels and Freelancers assembled to destroy the construct in the Basin. Upon arrival, they were met with a new discovery: an intelligent Scar with technology built into its skull, earning it the name "Junkhead." Junkhead is considered the first official Scar Luminary.
-From History of Scars by Hanni Blythe
Formerly called the East Strider path, this ancient road used to be a bustle of activity, but when Scars began ambushing striders, traffic became less frequent. The term "Lost Road" was coined by strider drivers.
The Phantom Crag
The Phantom Javelin was last spotted along the eastern edge and the old strider path. Recent eyewitnesses confirmed previous accounts that the Phantom Javelin did indeed have no head and consequently, no pilot. Who and how can this possibly exist?
- From the Ancient Anzu radio show
Of course not everything beyond the wall will kill you. Some of the birds are quite friendly. I was watching a flock of indigoes when I wandered into the Hollows, completely missing the huge insect colonies. The insects swarmed and damaged my javelin. It was pure luck that I wasn't eaten by wolven right there! Which brings me to the point of this guide: while not everything is trying to kill you, it may get you killed anyway. Stay home.
- From A Guide To Living Things That Will Kill You by Timon Batrok
We chased Malachi through to the Pistons, and as we took the small chute out, some of his cronies pushed a boulder on top of us. I broke my leg. They got away. I have to give the outlaws credit... they really know the land.
The heart of the Scar incursion is found at the base of Hammertop Mountain, called the Scar's Duskheap. Though efforts have been made to disrupt and destroy this massive swarm, the depth and complexity of the caverns have been to the Scars' advantage. No matter the lancer's efforts, there always seems to be somewhere to hide.
-From History of Scars by Hanni Blythe
There on the other side of the corridor was a lancer. It was some sort of old javelin, not like the kind you see today... its back was to me but I could tell something was funny about it. Gave me the chills. As I moved closer, I realized that the javelin... had no head! I must have gasped or made a noise or something, because then it turned around and looked at me. Or at least it would have, but it had no head!
