Loftite fever has hit Algoroc! The plentiful blue crystal--once considered a worthless nuisance--has become a hot commodity, and people from across the planet are rushing to Algoroc's lawless frontier to stake their claim and make their fortunes!
East of the dangerous borderlands is the town of Gallow. With the recent explosion in the demand for loftite, the once sleepy Gallow has become a boomtown, its dusty streets full of hopeful prospectors, colorful hucksters, and shrewd merchants looking to make a buck. The recent boom has also attracted the Darkspur Cartel--an intergalactic crime organization that hopes to profit from Gallow's good fortune by extorting businessmen and running loftite prospectors off their rightful claims.
After the town's peacekeeper was brutally and publically murdered by Cartel thugs, the townsfolk of Gallow called in the infamous Judge Kain to get to the bottom of it. Known for his iron will and his quick trigger finger, Kain has recently arrived in Gallow to swing the hammer of justice and take the Cartel down.
Like many places on Nexus, Algoroc is the location of ancient Eldan ruins--and the western mountains are no exception. Here the Exile Academy of Science has been excavating an ancient Eldan facility, an impressive testament to the technological advancement of the mysterious Eldan who disappeared from the planet long ago. This excavation has also uncovered a massive, top-secret relic never before encountered on Nexus--motivating the XAS scientists to try and access encrypted Eldan data archives located nearby.
Unfortunately, the XAS archaeologists triggered the site's security protocols--unleashing an army of Eldan security bots that poured out and began attacking the camp. Besieged by these brutally efficient killing machines, the scientists are trying desperately to survive while attempting to shut down the security systems.
And that's it for now, friends! We'll be introducing you to even more of the interesting inhabitants, curious creatures and terrible trouble you'll meet in Algoroc over the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for more. In the meantime...
When last we left our heroes...
