Hartulix Ring is one of the older rings, which houses the Ancients, the area is a threat to all but a few, as the automated machines will attack anything that is less advanced than teir 1.

the ring is littered with phase gates that phase matter into the pocket dimension which is suspected to be highly populated with the Ancients and perhaps some Xaliurians (likely).

on the outside of the ring is slip-space inhibitors that redirect the slip-space tunnels back into the Veheris ring.
