Guide to Arieki

Guide to Arieki -

NCsoft has released this new guide to Arieki, one of the worlds in their upcoming sci-fi MMORPG, Richard Garriott's Tabula Rasa.

In many ways Arieki is very different from Foreas. This harsh, volcanic world stuns many Humans who experience it for the first time, especially if they are coming from the beautiful, lush Foreas. Large areas of Arieki are very barren and rugged, pockmarked with numerous active volcanoes and volcanic fissures. In fact, much of the surface is geologically active in one form or another; a Volcanologist would be in heaven on Arieki. Aside from the massive stratovolcanos, visitors may find hydrothermal vents, subterranean lava flows, and burning pits of liquid (tar or other flammable material).

The sky takes on a sickly greenish hue in the daytime; however, ground visibility can be extremely limited due to dense atmosphere close to the ground, permeated with constant falls of ash and other expelled materials. Clouds of toxic gas sweep the landscape and powerfully violent electrical storms are a constant danger. A particular metal ore infused in the planet's crust, nicknamed "fluxite", seems to be the root cause of the numerous electrical storms. It has also been discovered that the Bane use this ore to amplify the intensity of their energy weapons.
