-The story begins in the **year 12,271**. Humankind had colonized thousands of worlds. It was then that **Creeper** fell from the sky, with no purpose of reason. It wanted nothing, nor could it be reasoned with. It seemed its only purpose was to undo everything humankind had ever done. The first day of the invasion, fifty worlds fell and 500 billion lives were lost. Guided by the crazed **Old Man**, Humanity assembles its final bastion - **Odin City** - and having received a set of coordinates to travel to - activates the Totems on planet **Hope**, opens a portal to Rift Space and embarks on its final journey.+The story begins in the **year 13,271**.

 The first planet Odin City jumps to is **Taurus**. This jump **erases Odin City’s data banks**, causing it to lose several technologies. The **Relay** nano schematic is found on Taurus. The city travels through **Fitch** and **Orion**, finding the **Energy Storage** schematic as well as the **Mortar** schematic, respectively. The Orion population on-board Odin City mentions that their military had been working on the Mortar technology. The first planet Odin City jumps to is **Taurus**.

 Upon arrival at the next planet, **Cetus**, OPS reveals that the loss of data banks from the first Rift jump **erased the rest of the coordinates left by the Old Man**. That means the city has to jump blind. Conveniently, an Artifact is found on this world, which revealed the coordinates of five worlds, with no further information about them. The Artifact was also determined to have been 11,261 years old, built in the year 2010. Upon arrival at the next planet, **Cetus**, OPS reveals that the loss of data banks from the first Rift jump **erased the rest of the coordinates left by the Old Man**.

 Odin City arrives at the step-pyramid ruins on a world called **Ara**, using the first coordinates from the Artifact. The **Speed Node** schematic is found on Ara. The second set of coordinates from the Artifact have the Odin City arrive at **Corvus**, once a lush ocean world, now a dry, barren rock. The scanner picked up several **survival pods** scattered around the horizon. The 27 survivors were a crew of a science mission, cruising the extra-galactic deep space for the last 20 years. Upon their return they were met with everything having been covered in Creeper, and eventually failed to maintain orbit around this planet after running out of fuel. One of the survivors mentions that 20 years ago, **they received a stone by the Old Man**, meant to keep their crew safe on their journey - and that in the moment of their greatest peril, another crew on a journey of their own would find and rescue them. Odin City arrives at the step-pyramid ruins on a world called **Ara**, using the first coordinates from the Artifact.

 Jumping to the third set of coordinates, the crew finds themselves on the edge of a giant caldera in a world called **Draco**. The presence of another Artifact is detected. The Artifact proves difficult to decipher, so the contents remain unknown at this time. Odin City jumps through the planet **Crux** and finds themselves on the planet **Octan**, the fifth and last destination saved in the Artifact found on Cetus. Sound the alarms! A new threat has emerged - **Creeper Spores**. Luckily, Octan is a planet constantly bombarded by meteor debris, and the Octans have been working on a missile tracking technology to contain it - the **SAM** - and its schematic is found right here. The schematic also happens to contain **the coordinates of another five worlds**, where the Octans planned to deploy this technology. Having nowhere else to go, the Commander chooses to select those as the next destination. Jumping to the third set of coordinates, the crew finds themselves on the edge of a giant caldera in a world called **Draco**.

 Using the new set of coordinates, Odin City warps through **Tucana**, an unexpectedly harsh world, to arrive on **Vela**. A **Reactor** schematic is found here. Seeing another ordinary world offering no real resolution to the predicament the city finds itself in, OPS begins to doubt the reason behind their journey. For all they know, they could be fleeing from the Creeper until the end of time. The Commander however, believes that there is a purpose to it. Using the new set of coordinates, Odin City warps through **Tucana**, an unexpectedly harsh world, to arrive on **Vela**.

 Traveling through **Ix**, Odin City finds itself in a difficult scenario, but finds a **Drone Bomber** schematic that proves vital to their escape. OPS fears that the city is nearing its demise, with the Creeper getting stronger in each world they visit. Getting past **Scluptor**, the crew arrives at **Volan**, and a single **Survival Pod** is detected - one that seems to have landed within the last hour, yet it ended up being empty. Traveling through **Ix**, Odin City finds itself in a difficult scenario, but finds a **Drone Bomber** schematic that proves vital to their escape.

 +==== Platius ====
 +=== Past ===
 +A long time ago, long before the existence of humanity, **Platius** was the leader of the civilization which fought the Loki for millions of years. It eventually fell, and only Platius alone remained.
 +
 +TBD
 +
 +=== Present ===
 +**Platius**, or **Old Man**, is a mysterious figure who reveals himself only through various messages found by Skars.
 +
 +When Skars was an infant, Platius saved him from certain death during Tucana raids and took him to Aquila, where he was adopted and raised. He vanished after that, never revealing himself to anybody in person, other than his name.
 +
 +After Platius rescues Skars from the burning Thor, he explains that he has lived throughout the world in the ancient times, making him an immortal being.
 +
 +=== Creeper World 1 ===
 +Disguised as the "Old Man", Platius aided in the construction of **Odin City**, known to themselves as the last bastion of humanity, led by Commander Skarsgard Abraxis. He also left them specific instructions on where to go - which they had to take, as there was no other option left.
 +
 +20 years prior to the creation of Odin City, Platius sends a group of scientists on a mission to the deep space, meant to take exactly 20 years, and gives them a stone meant to keep them safe on their journey. The scientists come back to see everything destroyed by Creeper, but are saved just in time by Abraxis' crew.
 +
 +Platius knows that Odin City is going to lose a major chunk of the coordinates left by him after the first five worlds they visit, and scatters special Artifacts in key worlds that aren't destroyed by Creeper. While the first two Artifacts containing coordinates aren't specifically traced back to him, it is a reasonable assumption they are his, as the third Artifact is signed with the name "Platius".
 +
 +Having led Odin City from the shadows, it arrived at its final destination - Loki, where they find themselves struggling against the Creeper Nexus. As humanity is starting to give up, Platius sends them their last hope - a special Artifact - which combined with the stone, constructs into the mighty superweapon Thor. This is where Abraxis begins to remember what he must do, even though he doesn't know why or how - he opens a Rift to a black hole which sucks in the Nexus, and then pilots Thor into it and detonates the ship's power source, sealing the Rift.
