Archors are strange. They are truly the brains of the world; part computer, part human, part network, fully dangerous. It is a good idea to get in good with the Archors, but that is not an easy task. All-on-all there is a known 29 factions, all hiding in their “forums,” all of which are almost impenetrable… Unless you know the rules, of course.
Archors, at first sight (even at second and third sights) can be terrifying. Slightly reminiscent of Star Trek’s Borg, Archors have modified themselves with computer components and use these enhancements for everything. For the most part, the general dressing scheme of the Archors is unknown, and since no two look the same, it is hard to describe them in much detail.
The Archors are interesting, considering how many factions exist, there is no discernible ranking system. Actually all that is known is: Archors take orders from a server… Or maybe Server. Otherwise, everything one Archor knows, every other Archor in the community also knows. It is also known that Archors transmit information between communities weekly. Other than the fact that Archors all appear to be equal to each other. Nothing else is really known.
Archors stay hidden. Yes, there is 29 known factions, yet nobody has figured out how to gain access without the Archors knowledge/permission. Even more importantly is this; no two Archor forum entry requirements are the same. In fact, the only guaranteed method of forum entry is: be an Archor. This is the only power the Archors care for.
Archor encounters (outside forums) are rare, as they rarely leave the safety and sanctity of the forum. However, if you should find yourself in a fight, success is slim. Archors’ advanced “minds” and speed allow the Archor to target weakness and threat levels quicker than the blink of an eye. Also, the Archors are able to, typically, move much faster then normal and use this to their advantage. However, everything an Archor does is calculated, making initial actions (or response to random actions) delayed.
Rakers: “They couldn’t secure a door… And they try and enter our forums?”
Matadors: “They think they control us? That is most laughable”
Antar: “Brutes… If they only knew how much they’ve destroyed”
Skag: bbbbbeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeepppppppppppppppppppppppp! click.
Tillman: “They are just as bad as th Matadors.”
Topledo: “If we desired th power, not even the Topledo could stop us… We’ve ran the simulations millions of times, and all the results say we will win.”
