Skitterin Hybrids Announced

Skitterin Hybrids Announced -

NCsoft has announced that Skitterin Hybrids will be joining the ranks of the AFS.  The enemy has deployed a number of weapons to counter the prowess of these cuddly warriors, including the Super String Cannon and the Laser Pointer Defense gun.

Due to overwhelming feedback from the Tabula Rasa Community, we are proud to announce our latest addition to the Hybrid Series: The Skitterin Hybrid. Hey, YOU asked for it! Let us delve into the past of one of the newest playable classes and find out how this abomination… soldier…was created.

One late night, in Dr. Morton’s lab, AFS Clone Technician Jimmy Dunlap was conducting an experiment on the prolonged effects of cloning on human DNA. Jimmy’s main goal was to identify a simple gene that would allow for faster recovery and increased agility in battle for clones. He knew if he could single out the gene that is responsible for the increased metabolism and recovery rate in certain creatures, he could create a new race of clones with all the advantages, and none of the downsides. In a rush to test his latest theory Jimmy worked throughout the night, trying to extract the right combination of DNA from the various creatures on Foreas. At last Jimmy found the gene he needed from an unlikely source – a Skitterin.

Jimmy couldn’t wait to use this new DNA strand in the next cloning session. He knew that to get his discovery green lit by High Command, he would have to go through months of paperwork and technicalities. Unwilling to wait another moment and with his DNA concoction already prepped, Jimmy entered the cloning chamber.

Once the cloning process was complete, Jimmy peered into the adjoining chamber. It was obvious something had gone completely wrong. A large human sized, bipedal form covered with fur lay unconscious inside the chamber. The skitterin gene had more of an effect then Jimmy anticipated, and he quickly ran to notify Dr. Morton.
