The Virai Dronescourge are a species of artificial life, drones with
machine intelligences conforming to a strict, hierarchical structure.
They are feared by all Antarean nations due to their purposeful
disregard for both biological life and integrated, cooperative
intelligences such as the IMTel. Their leaders are specialised drones
called architectors, and the Virai First Instance is the sole commander
of a Dronescourge Hive.
This box contains:
- 1 x Virai First Instance with tool appendages and dual fusion cutters
- 2 x Virai Warrior Drone Bodyguard with ripclaws and fusion flamers
Each First Instance has comprehensive data cores holding the memories
of all of its predecessors. Amongst the memories are blueprints for all
the drones, weapons, tools and machinery a Hive could possibly need
dependent on what resources it can mine or scavenge. A First Instance
can back itself up to lesser architectors or clone itself into a
NuFirst, a drone whose task is to leave the Hive and establish a new
Virai First Instances are equipped with repair swarms to fix battle
damage, multiple tool appendages and a pair of heavy duty fusion
cutters, and are protected by multi-layered, honeycombed, cerametallic
shells. They are normally accompanied by a bodyguard, either of Weapon
or Warrior drones, the latter armed with vicious ripclaws for tearing at
rock and enemy armour as well as deadly, dual-purpose fusion flamers.
