Screenshots and Back Story - MMORPG.com

NCsoft has released new screenshots and back story for Tabula Rasa. The back story includes the origins and motivations of the Bane and the Eloh, and how humanity fell into their intergalactic conflict.

Richard Garriott Presents...

We thought we were alone. We felt secure in our future. Little did we know that we would end up being plunged into an intergalactic war that has been raging for millennia.

With every great story, there must be a beginning. As with every great discovery, there must be a first. Our story begins thousands of years in the distant past with the Eloh, an ancient and highly advanced alien culture. The Eloh civilization chose to devote their time and energy to peaceful pursuits of study and introspection. Over thousands of years they finally realized the key to a powerful science that unified all known theories of physics. With this knowledge they developed Logos, through which they gained the mystical ability to manipulate matter, energy, and force in unique and powerful ways.

In creating Tabula Rasa, I was determined to break away from our roots in medieval fantasy and develop a solid science fiction universe. We felt that we had created a compelling alien race in the Eloh. What we needed was some kind of scientific breakthrough that would become the defining moment in our story. And the discovery of Logos powers was the scientific revelation that became that pivotal discovery, both in the fiction and the game play for Tabula Rasa. As the Eloh begin to use their knowledge of Logos to travel the universe, they forge the beginnings of an intergalactic culture where they openly share their knowledge with all the races they discover that are advanced enough to understand it.

Many of the races they discovered, however, were in their infancy and too primitive to share in the Eloh's knowledge. The Earth was one such planet. But the Eloh are an altruistic people and wanted to someday return to these primitive planets. They left seeds of knowledge for these races to discover, including the language of the Logos so that one day, when these cultures were ready to understand, a relationship could be established with them.
