Sounds real good to me. I would like to add one thing to explain the fact that
there is more than one sargasso (It doesn't sound reasonable that all Arcane
societies made the same mistake). After being able to pass through the sargasso
by means of a gate and discovering the wildspace inhabitants, they decided
that it might be interesting to found new bases on other planets in other
spheres (this is really an on the fly idea, so it is still subject to any
modifications). So they decide that a sargasso would make the perfect defense
since it seems that they are the only ones currently being able to penetrate it.
That way they protect their knowledge so that other, more violent races can't
use it against them.
