Exodus-Era information device
The sourcebox is a Newtech information device containing data on exogeology dating back to the Exodus.
• Designed to update itself via the Cortex but all of its ports are outdated and it has been set to a Locked position (INCREDIBLE Tech. Eng. to create a workaround)
• Could also serve as a communicator, though it is configured for frequencies no longer in use.
• 18”x24” with two handles. It is about 24” thick with a touchscreen that takes up most of one of the surfaces. Recessed on one side are several outmoded port connections. (AR 4W, 10 LP).
• It is also made of a “smart” plastic that can heal itself up to 5 LP (1/day) or can be immersed in a “smart” plastic chem.-bath for further repairs.
It may, or may not, contain information on the fabled Seven Arks of Cibola, a lost fleet of Exodus-era ships that is reputed to have made the trip from Earth-That-Was but never arrived in the ’Verse. Vast treasures of old Terran technology and resources are reputed to be still available on the Arks.
