The story arc

Introduction: The Empire of the Lost

It's here. The new story arc from "Empire of the Lost" is upon us. In the coming weeks, our new story arc is going to give you the chance to shape entire worlds and some pivotal characters, so buckle up. Without further ado, the introduction awaits...

Entombed inside a hulking steel war machine, Nolan's reality is one that lies divided between two worlds. In the one, he is enslaved within the dominion of an Artificial Intelligence. There his mind lies tethered to a battered siege walker that stalks the wastes of a ruined world, hunting for robotic prey. In the other, Nolan takes refuge within the simulated dream world of Arcanus. There, during his hours at rest, he lives aboard a massive simulated space station that is populated with what remains of humanity. Each world is designed to shackle Nolan to his doomed fate, but as these worlds collide, fortune will lead him down a path that might just set him free.
