Welcome to your new home... the Meshold.
The Meshold will be your base of operations within the warpstream. It will provide you with safe haven where you can store any artifacts you find. It will also give you a place to forge your weapons and hone your skills to prepare for battle.
The Meshold lies on the very edge of the warpstream. From there, you can jump into the midimensions with ease.
The visor provides access to your inventory
and displays your vitals. It also provides
access to the game menu.
To equip weapons, access the menu, or scroll thru your inventory, simply open the visor and "hit" the item or action you wish to perform. When you are done, release the grip button and the visor will close.
As you get better at using your visor, you will be able to switch weapons rapidly in both hands. This allows you to change your combat style quickly, depending on the situation.
The most important thing you need to
understand is this - everything you see in
the midimensions is fabricated from
warpstream energy. Each midimension's
Energy fluctuates, making you more or less
You are attuned to the warpstream and can focus this energy to use on your journey. However, that energy must be carefully spent or you may run out.
Your movement and abilities use this energy to overcome enemies and flaws.
Your Meshold contains warp forges to
Display and customize your most prized
Once an artifact is placed into a warp forge, you can add, replace, or upgrade any of its abilities.
When you are ready for battle, you can
enter the warpstream thru the entrance
located at the end of your meshold.
The warpstream will transport you to one of its infinite midimensions.
As the warpstream flows between dimensions,
it combines the DNA of those worlds and
forms small pockets of reality. As these
energies cool, midimensions are formed.
Sometimes the chaotic blend of warpstream and ordered reality produces mutations that focus destructive energies. Over time, these mutations grow stronger and begin to destroy nearby dimensions.
You must purify these midimensions and save countless lives in the surrounding worlds.
Warp energy flows richly thru midimensions.
In dense locations, it crystallizes and creates
small gateways known as warps. These warps
form an elaborate web that can be used to
move quickly across a midimension.
Use warps with caution. At times, they can aid you in escaping quickly. But at others, they can get you into danger just as fast.
The chaotic energy that builds in warpstream
flaws produces monsters that will seek you
out and try to kill you.
These monsters embody the essence of the flaw that created them. Beware of stronger monsters as they indicate the presence of stronger flaws.
Occasionally, a flaw will produce a very
potent adversary known as a henchman.
These monsters are extremely dangerous
and will stop at nothing to protect their
Henchmen alone can shatter your essence. COmbined with the presence of other monsters, they can quickly become certain death.
When encountering henchmen, use warps and clever moves to keep them at a distance.
Flaws are the crystallization of unstable
energy in the warpstream. There can be
several flaws in a midimension.
Although somewhat inanimate, Flaws possess consciousness and can detect your presence. They will summon monsters to stop you and can be extremely dangerous at close range.
Flaws are cunning. As you progress in your journey, they will employ new strategies to prevent you from administering their demise. They can cloak, shield, regenerate, and move. You must use your best tracking skills to end their threat to life.
Fortresses are defensive constructs forged
by powerful flaws to ensure their survival.
Use all your battle senses when breaching a fortress. These ancient flaws present significantly more danger and will use their defenses against you with malice.
Sacking a fortress and destroying these master flaws stabilizes a midimension and removes all threat to nearby dimensions.
Warp Crystals are formed when monsters
and flaws are destroyed.
These crystals can be used in your Warp forges to strengthen artifact abilities.
Ability Crystals focus warpstream energy
into reality. These abilities can be used by
themselves or combined into artifacts to
forge weapons of great power.
Some abilities will emulate magic while others may emulate technology. Some abilities can heal you, and others can protect you.
Forging abilities into artifacts allows you to create a diverse range of battle styles.
Artifacts are powerful objects found in the
nearby dimensions. They can be created when
powerful flaws are destroyed.
Some artifacts can be used to fight your enemies in melee while others can be used to wage war from a distance. Others can be used to shield you from enemy attacks.
