History

Arkfalls began following the Arkfall, an event where the Arks in orbit of Earth exploded and parts of them rained down on the planet. ("Your Future Awaits!") The Bay Area has frequent arkfalls, so much that the profession of Ark Hunting has arisen in the area. ("World of 2047: 2047 Map") Joshua Nolan and Irisa Nyira tracked an arkfall in the Storm Divide that contained a Terra-spire. ("Pilot") An arkfall headed for Defiance was redirected by Sukar, who was being influenced by Nanites from an Ark-Brain. The arkfall landed outside the city.
