Terrax, the Crystal Planet, is an exacting world. A place where human physical contact is impossible and stepping outside is virtual suicide. The atmosphere is a hurricane of Coriolis winds and deadly scattershowers, composed of toxic metals formed into whip-like threads kilometers long. Immense Ocean Domes cover over the toxic sludge where the oceans used to be, and the surface of Terrax is covered in crystalline structures, called the Hives, where only the upper crust lives. No one can survive the raw elements; all must reside inside buildings, vicariously living through virtual reality programming. To believe the tales of Olde Earth, a place where clean water flowed from the sky, where the outdoor air was breathable and edible food grew out of the ground? These were more than nestling's stories, ancient mythology from a distant Time. Until the Rips in Time occurred......What happens next changes Terrax forever.
