If you haven’t heard, the Ancient Relics Story Pack will release on September 30th! The Story pack contains quite a lot of content, of which there are two precursor events.
The Baol Organism was once a sprawling interstellar Hive Mind comprised of trillions of psychically linked plantoids. With their ability to slowly terraform a planet's ecosystem and atmospheric gases via centuries of sustained photosynthetic processes, the Baol civilization produced a plethora of rich flora and fauna on otherwise unremarkable worlds. The Baol Organism curated lush planetary gardens and arboretums across many systems, forming mutualistic symbiotic relationships with local alien wildlife.
As per some fan feedback, these seem to be the ones fan look forward to the most. A mix of space elves, dryads, and ents, with a seemingly hive-like social structure, it is no wonder that this is the case.
The Zroni were possibly the most powerful psionics to have ever existed, or at least they were the first to discover the dimension that we now refer to as The Shroud. When the Zroni population reached critical mass their collective unconscious minds began to make contact with the proto-shroud in dreams, leading to mass lucid dreaming. The phenomenon was put through deep scrutiny and scientific study through which the Zroni discovered how to project themselves into the Shroud, where they found that they could manipulate the very fabric of reality with their psionic powers. It wasn't long before the Zroni discovered they could physically enter the Shroud and live like Gods, transforming the dimension to suit their whims.
However, the Zroni are not to be underestimated either, as they bring a dash of mystery with them, of a time long past, as can be seen.
Alongside these additions, fans can look forward to Ancient Relics and Archeology Sites to explore and make use of, all of which will be made available on September 30.
