    0x2A765 | The Iron Rose

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A765 Beyond the Deadlands lays a metal city cradled by high cliffs, called The Iron Rose. It was founded 180 years ago by Felix Stow, a state-sponsored engineer who was running from government persecution. Felix’s modular construction techniques led to incredibly rapid development. Even with the small number of friends and family who…

    0x2A764-ii | Deadlands Forest Shrine II

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A764-ii Buried underground in the north-east of the Deadlands, a second shrine contains a ceaseless network of gearwork automatons. The hip-height machines are tied to the time of day, and control various objects, platforms, and doors throughout the shrine. This means that the ambitious treasure hunter will need to take a few days…

    0x2A764 | Deadlands Forest Shrine

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A764 Ardune is not known for its vibrant flora. Perhaps the Deadlands especially reflect this, where moistureless air makes it very hard for anything to grow. Yet, one species of Stonetree does seem to survive throughout the area, defying current understanding of plants’ need for hydration. Without the nutrients available of other locations,…

    0x2A763-ii | Mineborg Techroom

    The backroom of Zen’s Workshop is something of an open secret. His cybernetics work raised the interests of the Illika Union many years ago and has become their primary partner for mine-worker augmentation. The Techroom itself is dimly lit, illuminated mainly by the orange and blue screens and LEDs for the job’s bespoke tools and…

    0x2A763 | Zen’s Cyborg Workshop

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A763 Zen is old, eccentric and much-loved across Ardune. Considered the top cybernetics engineer on the planet, he runs his program out of the same workshop that his career started in. Whether it is ocular transplant refocusing or neural booster-node retrieval, Zen and his apprentices make the job seem trivial. There was a…

    0x2A762 | Bacchus’ Empty Comet

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A762 Bacchus was a mysterious and charming woman who crash-landed on pre-treaty Ardune inside a small comet. Starting out as an “invading enemy of the state”, Bacchus was able to quickly disarm concerns, constantly repeating that she had absolutely no recollection of who she was before the crash or why she had come.…

    0x2A761 | Datastream Terminal Hub 14

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A761 One of the Datastream Terminal Hubs in Ardune’s Red Moon Quarry was shattered open during a terrible accident while Maintenance was attempting to repair the 80-year-old protective casing. The official Illika Union announcement stated that, unfortunately, all workers were instantly vaporised and so the terminal had to be completely sealed off. The…

    0x2A760 | Digital Wisp Corridor

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A760 Within the Red Moon Quarry is a series of passageways leading to the Datastream Terminals. Ageing infrastructure struggles to fully contain the very-high-energy communications streams, and so on the rare occasion miners have reported witnessing flickering blue lifeforms gliding through the air. After years of dismissed folk-tales, Ardunian scientists were finally able…

  • 0x2A75F | Red Moon Quarry

    0x2A75F | Red Moon Quarry

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A75F The Red Moon Quarry is one of many goliath quarries sprawled across and under the surface of Ardune. The deep red hue comes from the variant of copper ore that is found exclusively on the planet. Ardune’s moons are actually closer to white than red, but the light reflecting off the planet…
