A lucidian scientist named Atrian Lerit’r joined the lucidians of the Arthar’rt Observatory in the Northern Mountains. Atrian had recently received funding from the Observatory Board of Directors to research and build a new teleportation device, which would perhaps be strong enough to reach the lost city of Hallifax or other historical sites that were out of reach from the Basin of Life. Many interested in the project pitched in to help build the laboratory. Eventually, the machine was built and the first tests conducted. Unfortunately, Atrian’s calculations were not quite what was expected as the machine teleported test subjects to known areas of the Basin of Life. Eventually, the machine exploded and Atrian was left to go back to the proverbial drawing board.
