Iris & The Cataclysm

By Published On: 25 January 2024Tags: , ,

In forgotten times, the rogue planet Iris, full of invaluable materials, collided with seven child planets in a remote region near the center of the galaxy, creating, henceforth, “The Cataclysm.” In this area, a new form of free energy was born, an anomaly in the galactic order without peers. This unique resource, among other rare ones that can be found abundantly in the Cataclysm zone, makes it the most desirable treasure in the galaxy.

Another interesting characteristic of the Cataclysm zone is the presence of the mysterious Tufa, a race of hybrid mineral and organic creatures that appear to be heavily concentrated in the asteroid belts closer to Iris. Much is speculated about the origins of the Tufa and their relationship with the Cataclysm. Theories range from some saying they get their sustenance from the energy that comes from Iris to the planet being the actual living God of the Tufa, said to awaken at some point and lead them in a galactic crusade.

While we currently don’t know the real truth, what is certain is that the Tufa are guarding the outskirts of Iris, and those that want to poach its riches will undoubtedly face a zealous defense from the rocky beings.

Iris took a long time to be discovered. Due to an accident, or fate’s design, a group of space explorers from different backgrounds stumbled upon The Cataclysm zone. They found Iris, scanning the planet and discovering the massive value of this galactic anomaly. This would later become the first intergalactic data block, which would be sold to the rival factions and spark the greatest war ever seen.
