Ceres Lich

“Alright. There are three areas left on Ceres. What do you prefer, Spy, Interception or Hijack?” Inaros grunted to himself as he mulled over his three options. He stared glumly at the navigation panel, not really enjoying either of those choices. But that was all his cohort had left. “What kind of Spy mission?” Inaros … Read more

The Tireless Quest for Ash System Blueprints

“You want to farm Ash parts? Specifically the Ash Systems?” “Yep.” It had been some time since Smolt had evolved into Smallnaros, and it had been even longer since Volt had seen the former newbie he had picked up and trained a while back. Things had clearly happened since then, what with Volt having switched … Read more

Smallnaros

“Welcome to my throne!” Inaros beamed as he welcomed Volt in with open arms. The room was filled with Ayatan Sculptures, all thrown into a vaguely chair-shaped heap. Around the base of the Ayatan heap was a small collection of noggles, most of which were of bobble-headed Inaroses. “What do you think?” Volt glanced around … Read more

Small Volt’s Small Dream

“Hey, is that your friend there?” Khora nudged at Volt as they both exited Khora’s bright pink Railjack. Khora herself was decorated in white and red, with her pet cat Venari’s metallics matching, but the railjack was so bright that it put Volt and his yellow-ness to shame. They had just finished a mission that … Read more

The Adventures of Volt and Smaller Volt

“Hey, space mum!” Volt rolled his neural sensors as he received another message from an Excalibur he had recently taken under his wing. Unlike the first Excalibur, who seemed to know what he was doing and just lacked the firepower, this Excalibur was filled with questions. Questions and annoying nicknames for Volt. “Please don’t call … Read more

Jatttasey!

“JATTTASEY!” One panicked, static-filled word just flooded the comms. We pick up signals like this all the time, but as we’re nothing more than a shipment vessel, there’s not much we can do about them. It’s always the much larger military ships that get attacked anyway. The problem is that we’re currently docked at V … Read more

Catching up with Frost

“Operator, you have messages, are you not going to respond?” Ordis had been watching Volt do void fissure missions for hours and concern was budding in the Cephalon’s mainframe. Volt had blatantly ignored Ordis every other time he had tried to slow him down and stop him from doing more missions, but now Ordis had … Read more

Ember and the Helpful Stranger

The little Ember sent her message again, knowing that it would be ignored. Her message entered the Recruitment Channel and swiftly disappeared, pushed aside by a stream of other messages all saying things she didn’t understand. “LF AXI L3” “H 4X3 NEED HARROW” “LF PROFITTAKER” “H ESO 3/4” None of it made any sense to … Read more

Oooooold

Volt waved cheerily as he watched the young Mag fly off in her plain grey Liset. He had accidentally stumbled into a Grineer mining facility where they had been secretly broadcasting attack patterns and security information to other Grineer ships waiting in orbit, and this poor Mag seemed to be really struggling on her own. … Read more

The End Before The Beginning

The scream echoed across the dying cosmos, bouncing between dying dwarf stars and sputtering quasars, only to be muffled by the slowly encroaching darkness. Corpses littered the star ways, celestial bodies and god-like beings both torn apart and ravaged, drifting lifelessly and eternally. For millennia, a war had been fought between a myriad of forces, … Read more

Tenno Coming Together

Iron Wake was always empty late in the evening, which was why it was a perfect place for four Tenno to have a sneaky little get together. Frost brought the tent, Volt brought the blankets and snacks, Ember made a fire and Saryn had managed to buy some bottles of drink from a villager on … Read more

Dreaded Final Farewell

Apart from the tiny piece of floating debris they were standing on, there was nothing but empty blackness. Retvik took a deep breath and to his surprise he discovered he was still breathing oxygen and nitrogen. A second breath confirmed his suspicions, that there was an artificial pocket of air around the little rock he … Read more

Change over the City

Elkay stared out of the window, watching the city of Thre-Vretania. It was a large city, full of life and love and all that sort of thing. Something though felt different. As if the city had changed overnight and no one had noticed. Elkay’s office was above it all, furnished simply but designed in such … Read more

A Fashionframe Dilemma

Larunda Relay was busier than normal. On the Concourse of the relay, over fifty Tenno had gathered, half of which were taking part in the bi-weekly Larunda Fashionframe Contest. The contestants all stood in a ring, waiting for the head judge to pick a Tenno out. The spectators, of which there were quite a few, … Read more
