The last chance to save the world


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

Probably the lore of the game has been already decided I but since I'm stuck at home because of the epidemic I thought about a story for VS. I hope you'll like it. 

Background: a temporal disaster. 

Before the Drift humanity reached an incredible technological level. After mastered the strength of the elements scholars found out that it was possible to bend the very fabric of the space-time to make people to travel thousands of blocks in a blink of eye. Fueled by these amazing achievements the hubris of scientists run wild and soon they started to speculate about reaching the moon and other planets. To do so, they built a new device, a device immensely powerful.

In the day of activation people were ecstatic: all the world wanted to witness that historical moment. The levers were flipped and the giant machine started to work. The passage were open but soon the tecnicians found out to have lost the control of the machine. A massive tide of energy scorched the world destroying buildings and killing people. Luckily the tide didn't engulf the whole planet and some areas were spared...

Here's the background. We start in a world which has a technological level that can be compared to the victorian age: mechanical energy provided by wind, water, animal and steam is common while electricity had been just discovered but beside the "real world" property it can eventually act on the space-time making teleport possible. The Drift has to be intended as a tide of energy which isolated some areas of the planets and that it is still in place at the moment when the story begins in form of a unpassable barrier because the machine which created it is still working. Beyond the Drift, the outher world does not seem hostile to life infact plants and animals survived plus, eventually, some ferals NPCs. 

The mission. 

You and other people has been selected to cross the Drift to locate the machine and then deactivate it in order to bring back equilibrium to the world. To do so, the team will be teleported using the last working machine. Unfortunately the machine didn't work very good and it lost all your gear during the transport. As it wasn't enough, it broke down after transferring you thus the rest of the team won't be able to follow you. So now you are naked and alone in a hostile world. Your only hope is to find the machine and switch it down.

Ok, this thingh that you arrive naked and unequipped reminds the beginning of the movie Terminator. Nevertheless, at the arrival point you may be able to find random clothes and tools. 

Progressing in game

You are already a resourceful person, that's why you have been chosen for this mission. Your abilities may be random or chosen at the beginning of the game. Nevertheless you can still improve yourself by retrieveving and analyzing documents and artifacts. This should improve your stats and unlock crafting recipes. 

Reacing the main goal

To find the machine the first thing to do is to locate it. You can do so in 2 ways: by finding maps and documents or wandering around in order to find the place were there is the lower temporal stability. Obviously, some special equipment has to be crafted in order to survive in such environment.

So, what do you think?
