Campaign of the Month: September 2014
Only one living member of the alien race known as the Autotheoi has ever been encountered, the Saturnus Entity, though artifacts and remnants believed to be related have been discovered on many worlds. The Autotheoi are believed to have been a thriving and advanced race between 60,000 and 85,000 years ago. The Autotheoi seem to have followed a similar technological path to humankind, with a particular focus on artificial intelligence, data and information, and cybernetic enhancement. Autotheoi relics are always a matter of significant scientific interest.
Many believe that they were a race that achieved the ability to upload consciousness to a quantum core, achieving technological immortality until eventually their culture drifted apart as each individual became so powerful that they were akin to lonely gods wandering the cosmos. Others insist on a less fanciful account of the automated synthetic servants of a now extinct species.
