Faction Track System
“ Veng has been overextending his Highway Zealot troops, creating skirmishes on every front, but it's an effort he clearly can't maintain. However, it turns out that all his posturing is merely a distraction, diverting attention from his efforts to amass a staggering amount of Thorium. ”
— Event Message #1 [src]
“ His goal is simple: create a Thorium Bomb, which would have the power to destroy the entire Sector. It seems that he is willing to sacrifice his own life in the process. But why? We still don't have a definitive answer. ”
— Event Message #2 [src]
“ We must hunt down Veng and figure out where he is hiding his Thorium Bomb, since destroying it is the only way we can ensure the safety of the entire Sector. To our surprise, we recently received a message from Malachi, who claims to know where Veng is hiding, but he's asking for our help to take him out. Though it makes us uncomfortable, with the entire Sector on the line, we can't turn down our only lead. ”
— Event Message #3 [src]
“ Veng has overextended his forces in an attempt to distract us from his true goal: creating a Thorium Bomb and destroying the whole Sector. We still don't fully understand why Veng is willing to sacrifice himself and his forces, but he seems to think it's for the greater good. However, knowing his motivations is secondary to actually stopping him. With the entire Sector at stake, the Factions of the Sector must unite against Veng and his Highway Zealots. ”
