Something that we were promised early out of the gate was consistent content updates from Carbine on a near monthly basis. It is certainly an interesting idea and one that few MMOs have been able to do, let alone do well.

As I considered my decision, with the new information about the housing system that made me want to create a lab, I realized that I would really prefer to roleplay a Scientist, as that is what I am in real life (well, grad student in chemistry anyway). So here is my backstory, written in true Scientific fashion. I hope you like this little dive into roleplay. What is your character’s backstory?
