Critical Research :: Entry 001

Update: 2017-08-22


Beyond the colony-city of Atrius is a deadly expanse known as the Fringe. This deadly territory, only meters away from the civilized city, threatens the lives of those living inside Atrius’ protective walls. To discover more about this impending threat and study its violent inhabitants, an expedition team is assigned to infiltrate the Southern Fringe by a covert government department. No training could possibly prepare the team for what’s to come.

Dr. Kovski, an expert in Fringe studies, has been pulled from his comfy office and and thrown directly into the field. There is no promise of a return, but strides must be taken to ensure that Artius Endures.
