In-Game Description

Advanced Research Complex

Construction of the Advanced Research Complex was completed in MTC 2136. This vast state-of-the-art research, design and production center uses cutting-edge technology and fabrication techniques to prototype everything from robotic to weaponry to subspace communications systems. The building security, life support, and day to day are almost entirely managed by VEGA, the Argent civilities in-house Artificial Intelligence mainframe. Due to the highly sensitive nature of the research conducted in the ARC, the entire superstructure is essentially a Faraday cage to prevent any unauthorized communications beyond its walls.

The ARC is the birthplace of several breakthrough study fields, including BFG development, teleportation research and cybernetic augmentation. This bastion of advanced thought attracts the brightest minds in the scientific community, and is considered humanity's "brain-trust".

Tier 3 Manifest

Welcome, Tier 3 advocates. You have elevated yourself to the next level of thinking. Your previous notions have been cleansed by science, and you see things now as they truly are. The true power of Argent Energy, under the stewardship of the UAC, will drive us the next age of mankind. No more secret, no more hiding. Your journey towards the final Tier begins now.

Our understanding of pandimensional existence grows each day. As we begin to realize the true power that flows from Hell, we are charged into something far greater than we ever thought possible. Your life as a Tier 3 advocate is more than just the work you preform. Spiritual understanding of who we are and what we are meant to become grows with each artifact you catalogue, with each weapon you prototype, and each heretic you convert. The FEAR of Hell is seen for what it really is: False Emotions Appearing Real.

You have opened your mind.
