A seemingly deserted asteroid in the God’s Marbles Belt. It is very large, comfortably holds the population with plenty of room for viewing theatres, classrooms, training arenas, libraries, the Nahkton (gladiatorial arena where the Zsky-de takes place), as well as private living quarters. The surface of the asteroid is not lived on, all quarters are in the inside of the asteroid which has been hollowed out as needed. On the surface are the docks for spelljamming vessels and the few structures necessary to conduct business with outsiders.
This Nest is particularly well known for the quality of its alchemical products, with which they do a brisk trade. Queen Ka’Toth is currently spearheading the research group which will most likely revolutionize Xixchil body manipulations. Her goal is to be able to have hidden, loaded weapons (in any species) be able to explode or poison their target by means of a poisonous or an explosive substance that is actually produced by the body and then applied to the weapon before launching. The break through is soon. It will probably trigger a coup (or attempted coup) by Queen Ka’Toth.
Nest Greek Fire also runs many trading ships and does a brisk trading business of many varieties of items. This affords the opportunity for real world training of young Xixchil and supplies the Nest with all of the supplies it needs.
