The Martian Legend

New Web Fiction for KeyForge: Call of the Archons Is Now Available


In KeyForge, you become an Archon, an ethereal being of the Crucible seeking ultimate power and the truth of your own existence by claiming the countless Vaults scattered across the planet’s surface. But the Archons are far from the only mystery of the Crucible. In a world where anything is possible, anyone has the chance to become a legend in their own right.

This week, we're offering you a closer look at one such legend, and the truth behind it, with your guide Inka the Spider whom you can meet in our introductory fiction here. We invite you to delve into the archives once more with “The Martian Legend” by Daniel Lovat Clark—now available for download here (2.2 MB)!

Truth from Fiction

This week, Inka has gained the client of a lifetime with the Archon Ilishka the Younger who has come to ask for help as she seeks the truth behind the rumors of the Ximilpix, the one-eyed Yxili marauder.

People say that this Martian can stretch diamonds back into coal, that it seasons its food with reactor coolant, that it can kill eleven out of ten enemies with nine shots from a blaster, and a hundred other claims that boggle the mind. Even if this Martian is real, it may not live up to the tales, but as someone who spies and gathers intel for a living, Inka cannot deny her own curiosity. And so, she heads for the Martian hub of Nova Hellas, where few outsiders dare to tread. What is the truth behind the Martian? Can any living being possibly live up to the vision that others paint of them?

Be sure to return to our website every week as Inka spins her tales of the Crucible and watch for KeyForge: Call of the Archons when it hits shelves in the fourth quarter of 2018!
