Shardjumping is the most common and lucrative theft in the remaining universe. As stars are put under duress in a Darkening process, they exude waves of energy which coalesce into plasmite crystals (aka " Shards") when they pass through certain particles or atmospheres. These shards are highly charged with energy, and therefore, are prized where resources are low. Rogues are very adept at tracking shard formations and beating other claimants to those shardfalls. Or just taking the shards from someone else.
