Quote: "Ratvar is a dumb na-" "QVR, URNGUR'A!!"


While Nar-Sie is an elder god, they are not the only one. There are other elder gods in the universe, and one in particular holds a fierce grudge against Nar-Sie: Ratvar, the Clockwork Justiciar. An amalgamation of parts, steam, and cogs, Ratvar seeks nothing more than Nar-Sie's utter annihilation. Unfortunately, his exile to Reebe - a plane of complete nothingness - makes celestial warfare somewhat difficult. To these ends, he has enslaved mortals to do his bidding and ensure the downfall of the Geometer.

Assuming you're one of those slaves, you've come to the right place.

Summary

Assuming you've had experience with Nar-Sie and their cult, you might assume that Ratvar's servants operate in a similar fashion. In this, you would be both correct and incorrect. While both cults rely on forced conversion tactics and ultimately serve their respective gods, the similarities end there. The Ratvarian cult is focused primarily on subtlety, sabotage, and base-building, whereas the Nar-Sian cult is focused on sowing chaos, paranoia, and dissent among the crew's ranks.

In addition, unlike Nar-Sie, Ratvar is capable of converting silicon lifeforms. Cyborgs and AIs are both valid targets for conversion. Converted cyborgs will have yellow eyes, visible immediately unless headlights are on (and even then a close examination reveals them), but AIs have no indication unless carded, though they will not lose power as long as they are on Clockwork Floors or near a Sigil of Transmission.

Ratvar's servants have to fulfill his will. Typical goals include:

  • Summoning Ratvar.
  • Ensuring that a certain number of servants escape on the shuttle.
  • Converting or killing all silicon lifeforms on the station and having Application scripture unlocked.

Luckily, you are not alone in this. As a servant, you have a wide variety of tools at your disposal.

The Clockwork Slab Clockwork slab.gif

If you've had experience with the Nar-Sian cult, then you can think of the clockwork slab as Ratvar's equivalent of the arcane tome. However, the slab boasts superior utility, and slightly superior portability, to the tome. All initial servants start with a clockwork slab and can create more through scripture (more on that later).

The clockwork slab has five functions:

  • Recital Allows you to recite and Quickbind scripture. You can also toggle to and from Recollection.
  • Recollection Displays in-game documentation. You can also toggle to and from Recital.
  • The Hierophant Network action button Allows discreet communication between all Servants.
  • Up to Five Quickbind action buttons Allows for quickly invoking Quickbound scriptures when holding the slab. One to Three start off bound to Geis, Replicant, and Tinkerer's Cache, respectively.
  • Can be examined to see all components in the slab, plus the total components available to the slab when including the global cache.

Clockwork slabs will generate a component of a random or target type every 90 seconds(plus 30 seconds for each additional human or silicon Servant above 5), provided they're being held by a mob or are in a mob's storage. Generating a component also prevents all other slabs held by that mob from generating components; spread slabs out, don't hold multiple.

Using a slab on another slab, a person holding a slab, or a Tinkerer's Cache will transfer all components in the slab to the target slab, the person's highest-component slab, or the global cache, respectively.
Components placed in a slab will also be placed in the global cache automatically.

Every human Servant should have a slab! Slabs are key to the success of Ratvar's agenda.

New Servant Checklist

So the round started, and you're a Servant? Good! There's a few things that you should do before you begin purging all those pesky untruths. Any unfamiliar terms are covered later in the page.

  • Use your slab's Hierophant Network button to alert your teammates of your rank, position, etc.
  • Develop a base for your operations, preferably after coordinating on placement with other Servants - make a Tinkerer's Cache, then either convert some Replicant Alloy into brass sheets or make a Clockwork Proselytizer(once Scripts are unlocked) for making Clockwork Walls.
  • Start expanding your ranks by forced conversion; cast Geis out of sight of your target, then rush at them for a quick conversion.
  • Increase your component generation by handing out Clockwork Slabs, making Clockwork Walls near Tinkerer's Caches, and, once Applications are unlocked, making Tinkerer's Daemons.
  • Stay in touch with your teammates via Hierophant Network, and be prepared to help them if things go south.

Components, Scripture, and CV

Servants of Ratvar don't sacrifice their own blood to use rituals. Instead, they use something called components. In a literal sense, these are parts of Ratvar's body that have rusted and fallen free during his imprisonment. Despite this, the parts hold power on their own and are utilized by Ratvar's servants to power their rites - what they call scripture. Scripture has multiple tiers; each tier is unlocked as the cult's power grows. For instance, Applications are unlocked through having at least 8 servants, 100 CV worth of structures, and 3 caches.

There are five component types:

  • Belligerent eye.gifBelligerent Eyes possess the power to focus on certain things and grant malevolent sentience.
  • Vanguard cogwheel.gifVanguard Cogwheels are almost indestructible and serve in protection.
  • Guvax capacitor.gifGeis Capacitors can manipulate the mind.
  • Replicant alloy.gifReplicant Alloy is very strong but can be melted and molded by force of will.
  • Hierophant ansible.gifHierophant Ansibles can send massive amounts of data in an instant.

Most scripture consumes a certain amount of components of a certain type. These components are drawn directly from the clockwork slab used, or from the global cache accessed by Tinkerer's Caches. The global cache can store any number of components, but scripture will prioritize drawing components from the slab used before the global cache.

When a tier of scripture is locked or unlocked, all servants will be immediately alerted.

You might be wondering, "What's CV and why do we need 200 of it? Will it kill my children?" No, it won't, but it's still important. "CV" is the abbreviation for "Construction Value", which is gained by building Ratvarian structures or turfs. For instance, the Tinkerer's Cache (an extremely important structure) grants 10 CV. It is also granted by clockwork floors and walls - which are useful in their own right - and is a required threshold to gain more powerful scripture.

Global Records

You may be thinking that this is a lot of information to keep track of; it is,and that is why you have the Global Records alert, which appears in the top left.
Mousing over that alert will show you a variety of information on the cult's status, including the number of servants, number of Tinkerer's Caches, CV, if Tinkerer's Daemons are active, if an unconverted AI exists, what Generals can be invoked, and what tiers of scripture are unlocked.

Driver Scripture

Below is a list of all Driver scripture. Driver scriptures are unlocked by default and have no unlock requirement.

Scripture names in italics signify important scripture necessary to success.

Image Name Component Cost Component Requirement Description Invocation Time Invokers Required
N/A Belligerent N/A 1 Belligerent Eye Chanted - the invoker must stand still to cause continuous effects.

Every few seconds, the invoker utters an invocation that forces all non-Servants nearby to walk instead of run.
The invocation also does minor damage, up to a maximum of 30 damage per recital.

Every 2s up to 30s 1
Judicialvisor.png Judicial Visor 1 Belligerent Eye 2 Belligerent Eyes Creates a Judicial Visor, which protects from flashes and can create a Judicial Marker at any location in view.

Judicial Markers will explode after three seconds, stunning, muting, and damaging all non-Servants in the area.

For every 4 Caches;
1 Belligerent Eye
1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Geis Capacitor
1 Hierophant Ansible

Creates a Tinkerer's Cache, which can store any number of components, which it will share with all other Caches and Slabs.

Provided at least one Tinkerer's Caches exists, Clockwork Slabs will draw components from the global cache after drawing the maximum it can from its own components.
Caches will link to a nearby unlinked Clockwork Wall, which will cause it to generate an additional component every 90 seconds.
Caches cost additional resources to construct for every 4 existing Caches.

5s 1
Wraithspectacles.png Wraith Spectacles N/A 1 Hierophant Ansible Creates a pair of Wraith Spectacles, which grant True Sight; effectively x-ray vision.

Wraith Spectacles will, however, damage your vision if worn for more than a minute without periods of rest.

1s 1
Sigiloftransgression.png Sigil of Transgression 1 Hierophant Ansible 2 Hierophant Ansibles Creates a nearly invisible Sigil that, when crossed by a non-Servant, will lock them in place for about 7 seconds while emitting a bright flash that will temporarily blind non-servants lacking eye protection.

The Sigil does not mute the target, and, due to how it stuns, they can easily be pushed off of it.
You can stack multiple Sigils of different types on a single tile; Try this with a Sigil of Submission and a Sigil of Transgression.

1 Belligerent Eye
1 Hierophant Ansible

2 Belligerent Eyes
1 Hierophant Ansible

Produces an Cogscarab Shell, which can be powered by a soul vessel to produce a Cogscarab, which is fragile, but has a fast inbuilt Proselytizer that can convert rods, metal, plasteel, directly to power, access to the Hierophant Network, and a set of basic, but fast, tools.

The Cogscarab Shell is absolutely useless without a soul vessel, and should not be created without one.

6s 1
Fellowshiparmor.png Fellowship Armory

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Replicant Alloy

2 Vanguard Cogwheels
1 Replicant Alloy

Equips all Servants directly adjacent to the invoker with powerful but obvious brass armor.

The armor includes a suit, helmet, gauntlets, and boots, and anything a servant is wearing in those slots will prevent it from being equipped.
The helmet, armor, and gauntlets provide massive melee, bullet, and bomb protection, but a weakness to lasers.
Each nearby living Servant decreases the invocation time by 1 second.

Sigilofsubmission.png Sigil of Submission

1 Belligerent Eye
1 Geis Capacitor

1 Belligerent Eye
2 Geis Capacitors

Creates a Sigil that, when crossed by a non-Servant, will attempt to convert them after 7 seconds if they remain on the Sigil for that time.

The Sigil announces conversion attempts over the Hierophant Network, though it will not announce if the target moves off the Sigil first.
Both successful and unsuccessful conversion attempts will stun and mute the target.

6s 1
Soulvessel.png Soul Vessel

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Geis Capacitor

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
2 Geis Capacitors

Creates a Soul Vessel, a clockwork cube that can be used as a posibrain.

3 Belligerent Eyes
1 Geis Capacitor
1 Hierophant Ansible

Creates a Sigil much like a Sigil of Submission, except it remains even after converting most targets and will penetrate mindshields, converting even through them.

Converting a mindshielded target in this fashion consumes the Sigil as normal, however.
Sigils of Accession are otherwise identical to Sigils of Submission in function.

1 Belligerent Eye
3 Vanguard Cogwheels
1 Hierophant Ansible

Creates a hard-to-see Sigil that, when crossed by a non-Servant, will start to drain them of health, filling the Sigil with Vitality, after a brief delay.

When crossed by a Servant, however, it will use the drained Vitality to rapidly heal them of all damage until it runs out of Vitality. It cannot do both at once.
The Vitality Matrix can also revive dead Servants at a cost of 20 Vitality plus all of that Servant's non-oxygen damage in Vitality.

Allocates part of the invoker's consciousness to a Clockwork Marauder, a vigilant fighter that lives within them, able to be called forth by Speaking its True Name or if they become exceptionally low on health.

Marauders cannot move too far from their hosts, and will take damage at an increasing rate as they grow farther away. However, if a Marauder stays close to its host, they will gradually heal.
Marauders may Block attacks, negating the damage from them, and may immediately Counter Blocked attacks, attacking whoever tried to attack them.

Sigiloftransmission.png Sigil of Transmission

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Geis Capacitor
2 Hierophant Ansibles

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Geis Capacitor
3 Hierophant Ansibles

Interdictionlens.png Interdiction Lens

3 Belligerent Eye
1 Replicant Alloy
1 Hierophant Ansible

4 Belligerent Eye
1 Replicant Alloy
1 Hierophant Ansible

Creates an Interdiction Lens, which imposes an Interdiction Field on the nearby area as long as it remains active.

The Interdiction Field will drain power from APCs, SMES units, and non-Servant cyborgs and transfer that power into any nearby Sigils of Transmission or the area's APC, then immediately disrupt all cameras and radios in the Field.
If it finds no disruptable objects and drains no power, it will shut off for 2 minutes.

8s 2
Mendingmotor.png Mending Motor

3 Vanguard Cogwheels
1 Geis Capacitor
1 Replicant Alloy

4 Vanguard Cogwheels
1 Geis Capacitor
1 Replicant Alloy

Creates a Mending Motor, a powerful prism that will heal nearby clockwork mobs, structures, and Servant cyborgs.

It is relatively inefficient and will consume large amounts of power if there are large numbers of damaged clockwork mobs, structures, or Servant cyborgs nearby.
It requires 50W of power to attempt repair, and can spend up to 200W on a single object if that object is damaged enough.

8s 2
Maniamotor.png Mania Motor

3 Geis Capacitors
1 Replicant Alloy
1 Hierophant Ansible

4 Geis Capacitors
1 Replicant Alloy
1 Hierophant Ansible

Creates a Mania Motor, which will cause brain damage, confusion, dizziness, and hallucinations in nearby non-Servant humans. The effects get progressively worse as targets near the Motor.

It will also try to convert humans directly adjacent to the motor; if it fails, it will first force them to touch it, then put them to sleep until they manage to move away or become a valid target for conversion.
It requires 200W of power to run, an additional 1000W of power to successfully convert non-Servant humans, and 500W of power to force unconvertable humans to sleep.

Produces a Tinkerer's Daemon, which will produce a component of either a chosen or random type every 12 seconds while active.

It requires 50W of power to produce any component, plus an additional 50W of power for every 5 of the produced component in the global cache.
Tinkerer's Daemons will only function if outnumbered by Servants at a rate of 5 to 1.

8s 2
Clockworkobelisk.png Clockwork Obelisk

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Replicant Alloy
3 Hierophant Ansibles

1 Vanguard Cogwheel
1 Replicant Alloy
4 Hierophant Ansibles

Creates a Clockwork Obelisk, which can Hierophant Broadcast or create a Spatial Gateway. It also serves as a target for Spatial Gateways.

Hierophant Broadcast allows the user to send a large message to all Servants, useful for coordinating.
Spatial Gateway functions as the Script, but with a duration of 10 seconds and 5 uses, in addition to being two-way, allowing passage from either side of the Gateway.
Two-way Gateways are both a bonus and a malus; While it can be used to rescue Servants, if someone notices the gate before it closes, they can easily follow or toss dangerous items into it.
Spatial Gateways to a Clockwork Obelisk receive double duration and uses.
It requires 50W of power to Hierophant Broadcast and 2000W of power to create a Spatial Gateway.

Structures, Sigils, Objects, and Constructs

This is a listing of the various structures and constructs available to the Servants of Ratvar.

Structures

Clockwork Structures with effects become up to 50% less effective(at 25% of maximum Health) as they lose Health.

Most Clockwork Structures can be unsecured from the floor with a wrench, though this will damage them for about 25% of their maximum Health.
This only applies to actual structures; windows, tables, and walls all have their own deconstruction/unsecuring steps.

Image Name Health Description Usage Tip Construction Value
Clockfloor.png Clockwork Floor N/A A Clockwork Floor produced with brass or by a Clockwork Proselytizer.

Can be Proselytized into a Clockwork Wall for a cost of 1000W power.

Clockwork Floors will rapidly heal toxin damage in Servants of Ratvar. 1
Brass window single.png Brass Window 100 A Brass Window produced with brass or by a Clockwork Proselytizer. Provides a very small amount of CV and is a reasonable barrier. 1
Brass window.png Brass Window 150 A Brass Window produced with brass or by a Clockwork Proselytizer. Provides a small amount of CV and is a reasonable barrier. 2
Brass table.png Brass Table 200 A Brass Table produced with brass. Provides a small amount of CV and a place to store items. 2
Wallgear.png Wall Gear 150 A Wall Gear produced with brass, by a Clockwork Proselytizer, or by breaking down a Clockwork Wall.

Wall Gears can be climbed, like tables, unwrenched from the floor, and, if unsecured, deconstructed with a screwdriver.

Wall Gears can be plated with brass to construct a Clockwork Wall. 3
Brass windoor.png Brass Windoor 200 A Brass Windoor produced with brass or by a Clockwork Proselytizer. Brass Windoors only allow servants to pass. 3
Clockwall.png Clockwork Wall N/A A Clockwork Wall produced with brass or by a Clockwork Proselytizer.

Can be Proselytized into a Clockwork Floor for a refund of 1000W power.

Clockwork Walls will cause Tinkerer's Caches to generate components gradually. 5
Pinion airlock.png Pinion Airlock 400 A Pinion Airlock produced with brass or by a Clockwork Proselytizer. Pinion Airlocks are difficult to remove and only allow servants to pass. 5
Tinkererscache.png Tinkerer's Cache 80 Tinkerer's Caches can store any number of components, which are considered to be in a Global Cache.

Provided at least one Tinkerer's Cache exists, Clockwork Slabs will draw components from the global cache after drawing the maximum they can from their own components.
Using a Clockwork Slab on a Cache will transfer all of the components in the slab to the global cache.

Caches will link to a nearby unlinked Clockwork Wall, which will cause it to generate an additional component every 90 seconds. 10
Ocularwarden.png Ocular Warden 25 Ocular Wardens will automatically damage a target non-Servant that can see it within 3 tiles of it.

If the target has x-ray vision, it will attack them through walls.

Ocular Wardens, while lethal and powerful, are very easily smashed. Place them behind any sort of barricade that doesn't block vision. 15
Interdictionlens.png Interdiction Lens 100 Interdiction Lenses will drain power from APCs, SMES units, and non-Servant cyborgs and transfer that power into any nearby Sigils of Transmission or the area's APC, then immediately attempt to disrupt all cameras and radios in the Field.
If it finds no disruptable objects and drains no power, it will shut off for 2 minutes. 20
Mendingmotor.png Mending Motor 125 Mending Motors will heal nearby clockwork mobs, structures, and Servant cyborgs while active.

It requires 50W of power to attempt repair, and can spend up to 200W on a single object if that object is damaged enough.

Mending Motors, while quite inefficient, are still far more efficient at repairs than Clockwork Proselytizers. 20
Maniamotor.png Mania Motor 80 Mania Motors will cause brain damage, confusion, dizziness, and hallucinations in nearby non-Servant humans. The effects get progressively worse as targets near the Motor.

Humans directly adjacent to the motor will be converted.
It requires 200W of power to run, an additional 1000W of power to successfully convert non-Servant humans, and 500W of power to force unconvertable humans to sleep.

Mania Motors are exceptionally good at protecting bases, as they cripple offensives with ease. 20
Tinkerer's daemon.png Tinkerer's Daemon 100 Tinkerer's Daemons will produce a component of either a chosen or random type every 12 seconds while active.

It requires 50W of power to produce any component, plus an additional 50W for every 5 of the component that exists in the global cache.

Tinkerer's Daemons will only function if outnumbered by Servants at a rate of 5 to 1.

Use them to augment generation of components that are being heavily used.

Clockworkobelisk.png Clockwork Obelisk 150 Clockwork Obelisks can Hierophant Broadcast or create Spatial Gateways, and serve as a target for Spatial Gateways.

Hierophant Broadcast allows the user to send a large message to all Servants, useful for coordinating.
Spatial Gateway opens a two-way gateway to a target Servant or Obelisk.
It requires 50W of power to Hierophant Broadcast and 2000W of power to create a Spatial Gateway.

Two-way Gateways are both a bonus and a malus; While it can be used to rescue Servants, if someone notices the gate before it closes, they can easily follow or toss dangerous items into it. 20

Sigils

Image Name Description Usage Tip
Sigiloftransgression.png Sigil of Transgression Sigils of Transgression are nearly invisible, and, when crossed by a non-Servant, will lock at non-Servant in place for about 7 seconds while emitting a bright flash that will temporarily blind non-servants lacking eye protection.

The Sigil does not mute the target, and is immediately consumed when stunning a target.

You can stack multiple Sigils of different types on a single tile; Try this with a Sigil of Submission and a Sigil of Transgression.
Sigilofsubmission.png Sigil of Submission Sigils of Submission, when crossed by a non-Servant, will attempt to convert them after 7 seconds if they remain on the Sigil for that time.

The Sigil announces conversion attempts over the Hierophant Network, though it will not announce if the target moves off the Sigil first and avoids conversion.

Both successful and unsuccessful conversion attempts will stun and mute the target.
Vitalitymatrix.png Vitality Matrix Vitality Matrices, when crossed by a non-Servant, will drain them of health, which fills the Sigil with Vitality, after a brief delay.

When crossed by a Servant, however, it will use the drained Vitality to rapidly heal them of all damage until it runs out of Vitality. It cannot do both at once.
The Vitality Matrix can also revive dead Servants at a cost of 20 Vitality plus all of that Servant's non-oxygen damage in Vitality.

Use the Vitality Matrix to heal usually difficult-to-remove damage such as cloneloss.
Sigilofaccession.png Sigil of Accession Sigil of Accession are much like Sigils of Submission, except they remain after converting most targets.

Converting a mindshielded target in this fashion consumes the Sigil as normal, however.
Sigils of Accession are otherwise identical to Sigils of Submission in function.

Sigils of Accession are slightly more efficient than Geis for conversion time, though they're unlocked much later.
Sigiloftransmission.png Sigil of Transmission Sigils of Transmission will power Clockwork Structures within 2 tiles and start with 2500W of power.
When crossed by a Servant cyborg, it will attempt to recharge that cyborg.

Objects

Image Name Description Usage Tip
Brass.png Brass Sheets Brass sheets can be produced directly from a proselytizer or from Proselytizing rods, metal, or plasteel.

Brass can be used to construct various brass objects or used to fuel Clockwokr Proselytizers.

Brass is a useful way to create structures early without a proselytizer or objects to proselytize, though it is quite slow in comparison.
Judicialvisor.png Judicial Visor Judicial Visors can create a 3x3 Judicial Marker at any location in view.

Judicial Markers will explode after three seconds, stunning, muting, and damaging all non-Servants in the area.

Judicial Visors protect from flashes and the Judicial Marker stun is long enough to convert with Geis if done quickly.
Wraithspectacles.png Wraith Spectacles Wraith Spectacles allow True Sight at the cost of rapidly deteriorating vision.

Wraith Spectacles can be worn for about a minute before they start to inflict permanent vision damage.

Use Wraith Spectacles to quickly check if anyone is near your base before exiting.
Fellowshiparmor.png Clockwork Armor Clockwork Armor provides exceptional melee armor(80%), bullet armor(70%), and bomb protection(60%) at the cost of a slight increase in laser damage(25%). Clockwork Gauntlets provide shock protection.
Ratvarspear.png Ratvarian Spear Ratvarian Spears are decent melee weapons that do increased damage to cyborgs and cultists.

Attacking a pulled human with the spear will do massive damage to them and stun.
Throwing the spear will do massive damage and stun the target, unless the target is a Servant.

Ratvarian Spears last for 3 minutes once summoned.

Throw the spear at a cyborg, walk up to it, prepare Geis, and use the Judicial Visor on it to secure a conversion.

Clockworkproselytizer.png Clockwork Proselytizer Clockwork Proselytizers can be used to convert a number of objects, including floors and walls, to Clockwork variants.

Clockwork Proselytizers can also be used to repair clockwork structures at a rate of 25W power to 1 health.
Use the Proselytizer in-hand to produce brass sheets from stored power.

Clockwork Proselytizers start with 2250W power and gain 12.5W per second.
Soulvessel.png Soul Vessel Soul Vessels can be placed in Cyborg Shells, Cogscarab Shells, and Anima Fragment Shells once filled.

You can attack a dead or unconscious non-Servant human with the Soul Vessel to capture their consciousness as an alternative to using it in-hand to attract a spirit.

Soul Vessels can be used as a teleport target for Spatial Gateway.
Cogscarabshell.png Cogscarab Shell Cogscarab Shells can be powered by a soul vessel to produce a Cogscarab, which is weak, but has a fast inbuilt Proselytizer that can convert rods, metal, and plasteel directly to power, and a set of fast tools. The Cogscarab Shell is absolutely useless without a soul vessel, and should not be created without one.
Animashell.png Anima Fragment Shell Anima Fragment Shells can be powered by a soul vessel to produce an Anima Fragment, which has medium health, powerful melee attacks, and high speed, but temporarily slows down when attacked. The Anima Fragment Shell is absolutely useless without a soul vessel, and should not be created without one.

Constructs

Image Name Health Description Playstyle Tips
Cogscarab.png Cogscarab 50 Cogscarabs are weak and unsuited to direct combat, but can communicate with :b, have a fast inbuilt Proselytizer that can convert rods, metal, and plasteel directly to power, can communicate with :b, and have a set of fast tools. Use your Proselytizer to repair damaged structures and construct Clockwork Walls and Floors.

Use your tools to repair windows and walls that non-Servants are trying to enter through.

Animafragment.gif Anima Fragment 90 Anima Fragments are exceptionally fast and do high damage, but slow down when they take any form of damage. Use your exceptional speed to dodge as many attacks as possible while getting as many hits in as possible; any damage you take is effectively death.
Clockworkmarauder.gif Clockwork Marauder 400 Clockwork Marauders exist to defend their host, and can Block attacks and may immediately Counter Blocked attacks, attacking whoever attacked them.

Marauders become unable to emerge if they are forced to recall while their host is above 65% health.

Stay close to your host; if you're directly adjacent to them, both you and they will gradually heal.

Block attacks to your host whenever possible.
Use :b to communicate with your host.

Threats to the Enlightened

Although the servants of Ratvar are gifted with great power, they are still threatened by many things on the station. This can range from enemy cultists to things as simple as hard vacuum.

Nar-Sian Dogs Cultist.png

The one thing that Ratvar hates more than people telling him that he has a bad name are the followers of his nemesis, Nar-Sie. Not only are Ratvar's servants incapable of converting them, but they endeavor to do the very thing that Ratvar wants to prevent: Nar-Sie's arrival into the mortal plane. The two cults are enemies of one another, serving rival gods with rival goals. As such, Ratvarian magic will be more effective against Nar-Sian cultists. The opposite is also true; much of Nar-Sie's magic is more effective against Ratvar's servants.

Security and the Chaplain Generic hos.pngGeneric chaplain.png

Nar-Sie's cult is generally absent on the stations that Ratvar's servants are present, but the watchful eye of Security and heretical priests is ever-present. A tactical security raid can demolish the most well-prepared of servant hideouts, and the chaplain's holy weapon weakens the Justiciar's magic; a holy weapon makes the user totally immune to the affects of sigils, for instance, and holy water will purge the light of Ratvar from even the most powerful servant's mind, given time.

It should be one of the servants' top priorities to infiltrate Security. The servants can use the Sigil of Accession to nullify the loyalty implant of a single target and convert them. As for the chaplain? Well, Ratvar says "Suffer not a heretic to live", so the answer should be self-evident.

Ratvar

Ratvar.gif

Once you've defended the Ark for enough time, Ratvar will come forth.

His destructive power is unmatched, turning the minds of the unenlightened and twisting the very walls to suit his image.

Few things are capable of challenging Ratvar's sheer power.

One of them is Nar-Sie.

If Ratvar and Nar-Sie encounter one another,
