“Chambers hardly dared to breathe, expecting the sounds of approaching Oratan at any moment. He listened carefully but could hear nothing from deeper down the passage despite the noise of his fall. After a moment of consideration, the craftsmanship of his surroundings was enough to convince him he was safe. He could not imagine the Oratan creating such a structure. He got to his feet, smiling despite his aches, realising he may have stumbled onto the colony’s biggest discovery yet.”
- Excerpt from back story instalment 4.2 - Desert Discovery.
The Archaeological Society has concluded that the passageways, rooms and treasure that Chambers discovered are a small part of the city the ancient Arkadians called “Aakas”. A document uncovered at the time reveals that the desert area was known as “Dehera”, and probably extended further than the ruins at Hawk Digsite, Falcon Digsite, Kestrel Digsite and Harrier Digsite.
The IFN Science Division was quick to make sense of the Arkadian Key technology and produce Blueprints for colonist use. Manufacturers have since been busily preparing their ten different levels of Arkadian Key for the moment when the IFN allows colonists access to Aakas.
A new Teleporter, called “Aakas”, has now been installed on the surface among the ruins, and the exciting news is that colonists are now free to enter through the mouth of the Riptor!
A variety of terminals are down there too, so kit up, grab some keys, grab your society mates and get down there for some armed treasure hunting!
