Galactic Archives.jpg

The Galactic Archives are an encyclopedic repository of lore that will describe the many creatures, people, places, and things players willl meet on the planet Nexus. While there are many ways to tell stories and reveal lore while players play the game, the Archives are where all of that information will be stored for their perusal.

While players are exploring the Archives, they'll also notice that many of the articles therein are connected to one another. An article about the Skeech, for example, will probably contain a specific link to the nasty Coldburrow Skeech tribe that lives in the Northern Wilds.

Entries are all organized into the following categories, which can be sorted via a series of buttons on top of the user interface. And since each entry can be classified into multiple categories, it's very easy to find exactly the kind of information that is needed.[1]

This section covers the exotic flora found on planet Nexus . Often, that flora is carnivorous and mobile, like the strange Rootbrutes found in places like the Northern Wilds.

Lore

This category covers general information concerning the history of player races, world groups, and planet Nexus. For those who really want to immerse themselves in the game universe, this is the place to be.

Here players will find those to fight all gathered in one place. Read about their sordid histories, while at the same time learning about the best ways to defeat them in battle.
