Earth Nexus Schematic

Published on 13.08.2014

Here's the Earth Nexus Schematic as presented in the Equinox Setting Guide, an abstract view of the various fold clusters and their relation to Gateway Station and the Earth Belt.

The technical/arcane look was designed by Angus McNicholl. We're thinking about a larger (poster?) version of the schematic, adding all locations of the Earth Belt as well. What do you think?

Mystical Materials

Published on 12.06.2012

Any discourse on mystic energy would be incomplete without discussing mystical materials. Mystical materials are able to interact with and manipulate mystic energy. As a result they are used in constructing nethertech, enchanting, and other mystical purposes. There are a number of different types of such materials, which formally are: telesmic essence, living tissue, biomechanical metal, and various grades of arcanium. Each of these and their properties and unique attributes will be discussed in turn, but all of them can be used for potent mystical effects and can be quite valuable in their mystically refined states.


Subspecies

Published on 18.04.2012
The mystical forces of the universe have a direct influence on the human genome. Humans born in the presence of a mystic field—which before the invention of mystic field generators meant they had to be on a planet in a mystic cycle—sometimes belong to a subspecies. The exact appearance of a subspecies depends on the mystical energy field present during gestation, the specific interactions between a human’s genome and the mystic field varying by world. While normal humans may give birth to a member of a subspecies if the pregnancy is carried out in a mystic field, members of a subgroup only bear children of that same subgroup. However, if no mystic energies are present, all children will be born as normal humans.
