Mirrow's Logs[edit | edit source]
- 3/15 - We have been left with no choice but to abandon Earth. Our weapons cannot hurt them, and they pursue us with a vengeance. Perhaps, on another planet, we can finally evade their wrath.
- 5/1 - The ship was heavily damaged in the escape, but the jump drive activated successfully. That should keep us ahead of pursuers, assuming the ship survives the journey.
- 6/30 - Fleshed out new plan for human augmentation and survivability, including number and type of specimens necessary to achieve our goals. Mr. H has left the research group.
- 8/5 - Reached target planet but cannot enter atmosphere safely and there are not enough life pods. Probability of survival low, even for augmented subjects. No sign of the enemy.
- 9/2 - Hull reinforcement progressing, but survival requires augmentation. Dissidents are protesting the procedure, even though their lives depend on it.
- 9/26 - Can no longer maintain orbit. Many have accepted augmentation, and some who wouldn't were launched in the life pods. Hopefully the reinforcement will be enough for the rest.
- 10/4 - Emergency reinforcement was largely successful, but estimated number of survivors is far lower than hoped, even considering life pods we cannot account for.
- 10/5 - Species viability is now a major concern. With only a few hundred individuals, we cannot survive without drastic intervention. Beginning new line of research.
- 11/20 - Established basic infrastructure east of crash site. Gathering new specimens for experimentation.
- 12/14 - Species viability research has stalled, but combat research looks promising. Cybernetic enhancements are able to turn an average civilian into a war machine.
- 12/24 - C disapproves of combat research. Instead of preparing for their return and enhance species viability, C wants to return to the stars and search for other survivors.
- 1/6 - C left the lab and made it clear we were no longer welcome in town. Moving base of operations into old lab in the remains of sector 22.
- 1/31 - Applying Cybernetic research to ourselves due to lack of test subjects. Still no sign of the enemy, but perhaps this time we will be able to fight them.
- 2/9 - Coerced townsfolk to help fund research. Also obtained new test subjects (vagabonds and outcasts). Research is progressing again.
- 2/27 - Ran out of vagabonds, so had to gather test subjects from the townsfolk. If viability research is not completed soon, we will run out of test subjects again.
After Water Cave Quest[edit | edit source]
Life-Pod Logs[edit | edit source]
- USER LOG: I should've launched straight for the planet... but I was scared. Now I'm out of thrust, and it will take months to fall to the planet with this orbit... My chances of survival aren't good...
- USER LOG: I had to steal this life-pod. I don't care what those crazy scientists say, there's no way the ship will survive re-entry. I'm not going to stick around waiting to die!
- USER LOG: The world has ended, we're stranded on an alien planet, there's no real hope for humanity... and yet I cling to life so fervently. Who would've thought that I would learn to treasure life now that it's too late?
- USER LOG: I wonder if we'll find sentient life on this planet? I mean, life other than THEM. There must be other sentient life forms out there. I hope some are friendly.
- USER LOG: I doubt anyone will see this log, but if you do, know that I was a soldier aboard the escort ship. It barely survived the jump and crashed into the tallest peak on this planet.
Earth Logs[edit | edit source]
- 3/1 - The day started bright and clear, and everyone was full of hope because of the ongoing recovery efforts after the war. No one expected this day to be the end.
- 3/2 - The destruction caused in one day made us feel like it was World War 3 again. However, it didn't stop - the alien bombers kept at it endlessly. It didn't take long for us to realize this was far worse than the war.
- 3/15 - It took a small fleet to take down a single bomber, and there was no end to the number of enemy ships warping in. Some fled in colony ships. Most died. Few remained.
- 3/17 - They left behind a ruined planet, their work done. The surface was no longer suitable for life. Dust clogged the skies, and we who remained took shelter in underground ruins and subways.
- 4/1 - The situation went from bad to worse. Breaking pipes, cave-ins, dwindling food reserves. To top it off, our own military drones, having received no orders since the one to defend the planet, turned against us.
- 5/1 - I hope those who fled survived somewhere out there. Perhaps they are making a new Earth as we speak. It is the only hope we have left. This planet is doomed. We are doomed. These logs may be all that remain of us if anyone ever returns.
Museum History[edit | edit source]
- When Exotic Matter was discovered and we could travel between stellar systems, humanity started the Unoiks project to locate potential colony worlds to offset Earth's heavy overpopulation.
- The Unoiks project was a huge success, discovering hundreds of potential planets within jumping distance. It appeared the solution to Earth's limited resources was found, and advance teams were sent to investigate the planets.
- Hundreds of worlds were found to be viable, and the press called it unlimited resources. Unfortunately, the "unlimited" resources relied on one of the most scarce resources in the universe, and it quickly became clear that not everyone would get to go.
- A race to build colony ships and stockpile Exotic Matter quickly turned into a war, one many would call the worst in human history. The worsening conditions on Earth only intensified the fighting for the few spots on the operational colony ships.
- By the time the war ended, billions had died and the damage to the planet seemed permanent. There were no winners, only survivors, and they had no choice but to work together if any of them were to escape.
- It was a time of recovery and cooperation, fixing the wrongs from the war. Unfortunately, it ended abruptly when they arrived with their bombers and unceasing violence.
- Humanity was caught unprepared. Some fought. Some fled. Most died. Earth's story ends here, but Earth will never truly die as long as those who managed to escape continue to honor and remember it.
Depths Tablets[edit | edit source]
- No profession was more honored than the Teachers. The Teachers used their skills to travel the universe in an instant, spreading their knowledge to the distant stars
- It was the way of the Teachers to share their discoveries to the benefit of all. But, one Teacher refused, instead hoarding all of their secrets and looking down on the rest.
- Ever tolerant, it took a long time for the other Teachers to act. But eventually, they cast him out of their ranks and named him the Dishonored One.
- The Dishonored One sneered at the other Teachers, calling them fools and assuring them that he would have the last laugh. After this, he disappeared. Only his sister knew where he had hidden himself.
- With many years of peace, none expected the flood. The waters rose and rose, flooding villages and killing many. Even the teachers couldn't handle the unrelenting waters.
- When the Dishonored One announced that he had conjured the flood, he did not seem the least bit remorseful, even as the death toll rose and rose.
- The Teachers knew they had to stop the Dishonored One. They banded together and fought him at the summit of the tallest mountain, where the waters had not yet reached.
- The battle raged for weeks, and drained even this planet’s vast amount of magic. With the supply of magic running thin, survival became a challenge.
- The Dishonored One survived by going into a deep slumber, and the Teachers deactivated the Mana Conveyors so that even when magic returned to this world, the Dishonored One would be unable to awaken.
- This is the final warning of those who lived on this planet: do not awaken the Dishonored One. Let him rest for all eternity.
