MMORPG.com: Give us some background on the Vanu Sovereignty: how did they form in the game's storyline?
Margaret Krohn: Utilizing knowledge acquired by Vanu himself, scientists were able to create one of the most powerful warfare weapons in the universe- rebirthing, an immortality system that uses Nanites to reconstruct almost anything. The Terran Republic attempted to keep this new found weapon classified, only allowing select military personnel access. Through undisclosed means, the civilian corporations got their hands on the formula for rebirthing. With the already growing tension between the T.R. and their people, it was no surprise when the New Conglomerate began rallying rebelled groups to fight the insurgency. At first, the Vanu Sovereignty made an effort to stay neutral, but as time progressed and the T.R. continued to crackdown on their studies and experiments, the V.S. found themselves forming their own alliance to fight not specifically for liberation or control, but for the evolution of the human race through scientific research and technology.
