The Tireless Quest for Ash Systems Blueprints

“You want to farm Ash parts? Specifically the Ash Systems?” “Yep.” It had been some time since Smolt had evolved into Smallnaros, and it had been even longer since Volt had seen the former newbie he had picked up and trained a while back. Things had clearly happened since then, what with Volt having switched away from his bright yellow looks and Inaros having finally gotten over his Kuva-coloured addiction. “Do you need help?” “I do.” Volt shrugged and headed over to the Codex on his ship, looking up a specific enemy which Volt knew horded Ash Warframe parts. “Hm…”… [Continue Reading]

Smallnaros

“Welcome to my throne!” Inaros beamed as he welcomed Volt in with open arms. The room was filled with Ayatan Sculptures, all thrown into a vaguely chair-shaped heap. Around the base of the Ayatan heap was a small collection of noggles, most of which were of bobble-headed Inaroses. “What do you think?” Volt glanced around the rest of the room. Everything was black with red highlights, all matching a very specific theme. “I think I left you alone for too long. I was gone for a few days and boom, you’ve made yourself into a tank and turned into the… [Continue Reading]

A Dramatization of A Second Dream

“Hey, is that your friend there?” Khora nudged at Volt as they both exited Khora’s bright pink Railjack. Khora herself was decorated in white and red, with her pet cat Venari’s metallics matching, but the railjack was so bright that it put Volt and his yellow-ness to shame. They had just finished a mission that was somewhat longer than they had expected, flying through the scary, red place known as the Veil Proxima and finding themselves boarding a very strange and, uh, ‘flower’-shaped ship. Overall, it had been a successful mission, but the ship had disappeared and Khora and Volt… [Continue Reading]

The Adventures of Volt and Smaller Volt

“Hey, space mum!” Volt rolled his neural sensors as he received another message from an Excalibur he had recently taken under his wing. Unlike the first Excalibur, who seemed to know what he was doing and just lacked the firepower, this Excalibur was filled with questions. Questions and annoying nicknames for Volt. “Please don’t call me that…” Volt sighed, before perking up. “How you doing?” “I’m doing great!” the fresh, young Tenno messaged back. “I just finished an exterminate mission and now I’m going to do a sabotage mission on Mercury!” “You need help?” Volt asked. “Uh, no, but I… [Continue Reading]

Jatttasey!

“JATTTASEY!” One panicked, static-filled word just flooded the comms. We pick up signals like this all the time, but as we’re nothing more than a shipment vessel, there’s not much we can do about them. It’s always the much larger military ships that get attacked anyway. The problem is that we’re currently docked at V Prime, awaiting shipment confirmations, where several military vessels are also docked. “Jkat? Kete? Here?” Aatiyuy, my fellow Tech, gives me a funny look. I glance around the storage room we’re in, keeping an eye on the proxies shifting crates around. “I hope not!” Taitok, another… [Continue Reading]

A Strange Kubrow

It had been a while since Volt had interacted with others. Most of the missions he had done, he had set off on his own, finished the mission and returned to his ship, only to rush off, on his own, to another mission. Even more difficult tasks, like half-hour survival missions and defending cryopods against waves of enemies, all of that, he had done alone. Aside from that Hydralyst hunt, but that was a story for another time. Speaking of that Hydralyst hunt, that was what snapped Volt back into Tenno society. While wandering around in Cetus, trying to decide… [Continue Reading]

Ember and the Helpful Stranger

The little Ember sent her message again, knowing that it would be ignored. Her message entered the Recruitment Channel and swiftly disappeared, pushed aside by a stream of other messages all saying things she didn’t understand. “LF AXI L3” “H 4X3 NEED HARROW” “LF PROFITTAKER” “H ESO 3/4” None of it made any sense to the little Ember. She just wanted some help, but the Cephalon from the Global Channel had sent her here. Suddenly, something beeped. A communication. A private one. Another Tenno had messaged Ember directly. “Heya, do you still need help?” Ember beamed as she hastily replied.… [Continue Reading]

Buried Debts – Not A Fun ARG At All

Turns out, there’s a whole Buried Debts ARG (Augmented Reality Game) tied in with the Thermia Fractures event. I mentioned the whole Data Hashes thing briefly in my previous article, but I want to talk about these data hashes specifically. The premise is simple. The players need to find and scan a bunch of data hashes, 14 in total. As you scan them, Eudico and Zuud will start discussing things. The data hashes lead to a secret on the edge of the Orb Vallis. The community needs to band together and scan all of these things to unlock further secrets.… [Continue Reading]

A Cheesy Christmas Story

Medic sat on the old leather sofa, not sure what to do with himself. It was one in the morning, so technically it was Christmas Day, but nothing felt particularly Christmas-y. The rain was pissing down outside, none of the lights were on and everyone else was asleep. Normally it was Medic who would sleep through the storms and awful weather, but something was bothering Medic and he couldn’t put a finger on it. A flash of lightning scarred the sky and was immediately followed by a crack of thunder. For a moment, everything was as bright as day, only… [Continue Reading]

A Bunch of Lovely Electric Warframes

Volt couldn’t remember how he got there. He wasn’t actually sure where ‘there’ was. Either way, it was a very tight space, with only just enough room for him to stand up straight. What bothered Volt more though were all the needles sticking out of his metallic Warframe flesh. Every few seconds, a tingling sensation would run up his body then drain away, as if the needles were… sucking electricity out of him? Volt wasn’t sure. The last thing Volt could remember was being attacked by a literal ton of… No, they weren’t Zanuka Hunters. If they were, they had… [Continue Reading]
