Shroudfall is the tenth major celestial object orbiting Lumenoferos, and the second gas giant of the system. It's medium sized, has a visible double ring. Its higher gravity compared to Thunderwell makes it much less worthwhile for gas harvesting, but has made it a major attraction for (primarily Khænish) extreme aeronautics enthusiasts.

The modern name is a translation of the shorthand reference to a Khænish poetic sentence "Endless fall through an infinity of shrouds" (i.e. cloud layers) - a description of what the experience of a pilot diving into the planet's atmosphere is like.
