Etherium

Etherium is the rarest and most valuable of all the known resources… a minute quantity of this substance can produce enough energy to power a colony of several million inhabitants. It also allows vast vessel-colonies to travel through space at the speed of light and enable titanic colossi of war to reign supreme over the battlefield.

Etherium is found on six “deposit” planets in outer space, far beyond the solar system. The resource is found in the form of a glowing gas trapped in immense, pearly spheres several tens of meters in diameter.

Etherium is found on six “deposit” planets in outer space, far beyond the solar system. The resource is found in the form of a glowing gas trapped in immense, pearly spheres several tens of meters in diameter.

The resource appears in cycles of 1,000 years on these six planets simultaneously. Three great powers, the Awakened of Intar, the Vectides and the humans represented by the Consortium, then enter the “race for etherium”; the struggle to control the precious and mysterious resource in a violent war that flares up every ten centuries. The race for etherium has begun!
