The Crypt is an underground bunker designed by a generative algorithm. It's primary purpose is to house a planetary artificial intelligence that manages interstellar affairs. While the crypt was host to a crew of guards and technicians, it was never meant for human occupants. The Crypt gate is the entrance to the underground complex of the Crypt. Traveling through the Crypt after it was offline for so long is dangerous due to crazed rusters cannibalizing the structure. At the heart of the Crypt is it's core, where the planetary AI comes together. Moving through the Crypt won't consume food.

Crypt Core[edit | edit source]

Part One[edit | edit source]

This was it, the heart of the Crypt. Ahead of us, a smooth ramp curved down into a wide open, darkened room. Just then, as if it had sensed our approach, a galaxy of small blue lights came to life, scattered across the blackness. Then the voice from the stars filled my head: ~###.

              With these twisted words, the new voice went quiet and a single red eye lid up in the darkness. A giant fashioned out of the Crypt itself stepped into view, followed by swarms of smaller machines ready to defend it.
              1. Fight.
          2. Why were you sleeping?

Part Two[edit | edit source]

With a shuddering explosion, parts of the machine giant broke off and the whirlwind of rusters slowed down. The mind, calling itself Durga, spoke again as the blue stars flickered. Its presence felt more awake and more alive now.

  3. Attack Again.

Part Three[edit | edit source]

Our Weapons had blasted the last of the attacking rusters into fragments. A loud noise, like ripping fabric, tore through the space as the giant's red eye faded.
We moved forward, past the metal corpse and towards the blue stars.

  1. Approach.
    • An enormous cluster of processing substrate lay before us. It had sustained damage from our fight, but I ould feel that the mind within was still intact, still struggling.
      ~###. OPENING ATMAN SEED VAULT
      WARNING RIFT-VITRIC INFECTION CRITICAL ___
      SYMBIOSIS REQUIRED TO SECURE OBJECTIVES ___ .###~

      1. What do you want us to do? The dialogue choices don't matter. They lead to the same results
      2. Examine the vault. The dialogue choices don't matter. They lead to the same results
        • The opening was filled with an array of small cylinders, each one a swarm of specialized processing nanites.
          Only one of those cylinders emitted a faint light. As I touched it, I could feel the spark of a mind inside it, active but still dormant.
          1. What does it do?
            • ~###. ATMAN-GESTATION SEED VAULT
              . Uncontaminated machine intelligence seeds
              . Required to generate new planetary level intelligence
              . Generated from planetary intelligence prior to RIFT_VITRIC infection
              . Require gestation in symbiosis with technopath
              . Warning: Use will cause dissolution of self .###~

              With a burst of dazzling light, it showed me what it wanted me to do: to take the seed into myself. To make it learn and grow as part of me, until we were one and the same, more god than human.
              1. How do we use these? The dialogue choices don't matter. They lead to the same results
              2. What about you? The dialogue choices don't matter. They lead to the same results
                • ~###. WARNING ___ INFECTION CRITICAL ___
                  INITIATING DELETION PROTOCOL ___ CROWN-PYRE ___ .###~

                  The blue stars started fading, one by one.
                  ~###. ___ GOODBYE
                  And with that final word, the last of the stars went dark.
                  1. Unite with the machine.
                    • Reestablish Control.
                    • Restore Civilization.
                  2. Destroy the vault.
                    • The machines had brought too much terror to this world. We could not be part of their rebirth. Instead we picked up our wepons and concentrated al our firepower on the vault.
                      We only stopped once the seed had been reduced to dull shards of plastiglass and substrate. The echoes of the last gunshots vanished leaving us in the scarred and lifeless hall.
                      The machine god had killed itself, and its evil twin and children were reduced to shards. Now we were the true rulers of the Crypt, so it was up to us to decide the future.
                      Should we use the knowledge and power of the Crypt as resources to expand out into the world? And if we did so, shpuld we do it with words or weapons? or would it be wiser to lock the Crypt's doors and foster our community hidden from the world?
                      1. Conquer the world.
                        • The Crypt was an idel starting point for our undertaking. Soon we had discovered armories, even some with intact flying vehicles, and few could withstand our firepower.
                          The nearby cultists threw themselves into the dust before us, accepting the divine mandate of the Crypt and joining our ranks. Then we turned our forces towards the other factions, waging war, and with our superior technologies end this chaos once and for all. Soma had been devastated for long enough, and now it was our burden to bring peace, whether they wanted it or not. The End
                      2. Civilize the world.
                        •  ??
                      3. Isolate yourself.
                        •  ??
