|Pod 2 Escape Pod 2: Maxwell, Sasha and Emma
Three months ago, a strange disturbance fractured time itself and tossed many unsuspecting travelers into the forgotten wilderness surrounding the great mountain of Thrall. A band of shamanistic refugees in search of the great Aether, as well as a band of soldiers known as The Order, and the vile network of The’Galin, have all made this unforgiving wild their new home. Little do they know, there are others lurking in the darkness, intent on protecting their native lands. It now falls upon you to aid The Order in reestablishing a base of operations, and to protect them from the cruel force of this treacherous part of the world.

Countless Adventurers wonder why trees can be clicked on, do you really want to know why?
Now is this the normal moon, the void moon, or that other moon we never see?
Why do all the network ships lack color?
This must be the escape pod Maxwell and his family were in.
Emma: Hey there! I am Emma Maxwell and I’m twelve years old! I may be just a kid, but I have portals….I know things.
Emma: Oh yeah, I can change the color of my hair whenever I want to. I am only half human.. my Mom is not from Lore! That’s pretty neat, huh?
Emma: I can change the color of my clothes too-- thanks to my daddy. He found a cool material on his travels called Holo Cloth. All I have to do is think of the color and my clothes change! I bet you’re jealous, huh?
Emma: My daddy is a time traveler, well we all are actually! We travel through portals and see all sorts of stuff. We travel time and space hunting down the bad guys!
Tell me about them.
Tell me about them.
Emma: Well we have seen a lot of bad guys who are a part of the network. Nasty looking Drakel with dragon wings! Big scary demon looking dudes with horns! Ugly slime monsters who have no eyes or mouth! All sorts of nasty stuff.
Atlas Maxwell: So we meet again I see...
We have met?
Take Maxwell with you as a guest
We have met?
Atlas Maxwell: Perhaps not in this lifetime, but we do know one another I assure you of that.
Atlas Maxwell: Do not let my eye scare you, it is simply the manifestation of my power.
Atlas Maxwell: This eye is known as the Eye of Truth, it lets me see beyond that of normal sight. I would explain it further, but it is complicated.
Atlas Maxwell: The Order is a team that was formed when our home was attacked by Makkisar’s army. Carnax destroyed our city and we fled underground. We continued the fight from a hidden base known as The Hatch.
Atlas Maxwell: With the help of adventurers from another time, we managed to defeat Makkisar and his army. We eventually learned that Makkisar was being used by The Network, and that they were behind the attacks.
Atlas Maxwell: We commandeered one of The Network ships, and fled from Lore. We have been hunting The Network ever since, stopping them from corrupting other worlds as often as we can and rescuing those in harms way.
Atlas Maxwell: We were not planning on ‘landing’ here. We were being chased by an armada of network ships, when our ship unexpectedly teleported here and we lost control.
Atlas Maxwell: The crash saved our lives. We would have surely been dead if the Network had caught us. If only I knew what or who brought us here...
Sasha: Hello there, I am Sasha Maxwell. As you may have heard I am not of this world. I was created by Makkisar during the siege of Stonerule.
Sasha: That’s right, I was created by Makkisar. My father suffered from the corrupted thoughts of Truth, plaguing his mind and causing him madness.
Sasha: Truth left my father for a short time, in this time my father created two special projects. Project I and II, two children who could carry on his life’s work and fix the mistakes he made.
Sasha: My brother Jacob stayed behind with my father in his true place in time. He swore he would free Makkisar from his stone prison and make things right.
Sasha: I am worried my brother has been corrupted by Truth, just as my father was before him.
Sasha: Atlas is my husband, we met a year before the siege of Stonerule, back when he was the prince of the kingdom.
Sasha: He was to be the next ruler of Stonerule, but he never seemed to care much for being royalty. He spent most of his days in Hollow’s garage working on the Stonerule Military Assault Mecha.
Ayame: Greetings human, I am Ayame.
A talking snake?
Ayame: I am no snake foolish human, I am an Aether dragon. Most dragon kin have the ability to speak your native tongue.
Ayame: My species comes from the far reaches of space in the realm known as the Aether. Far beyond the heavens, past the darkness of the void, there is a great blinding light. This is the Great Aether.
Viktor: Humans capture Kor-Dem. Humans name Kor-Dem. Humans treat Kor-Dem as human. Kor-Dem escape human soon.
Atlas Maxwell: Viktor you’re not going anywhere.
Viktor: Kor-Dem mad...
