Raider: Episode 1 is the first episode in the Raider series of games created by Pseudolonewolf.



This takes place as an entry in the Ship's Log.

Arkus Zei, the main character, is on his ship. He had been to the Asteroid Inn recently, and there he was hassled by some people. They came over to socialise, and recognised him as a pirate, and they wanted to share tales. He told them of some of his better raids, and in return they told him of a rumour, which he was doubtful of its truth. They told him about a race that had been wiped out. They assured him that they had left behind many priceless relics, and they told him the coordinates of the place, which he thought would not happen, as he doubted their truthfulness. He expected them to laugh, but they stayed quite sombre, telling him that many have tried to raid this ship, but none have returned. He was very sceptical of this, but he needed money so he went to the ship, getting a signal shortly after saying that 'SAPPHIROS knows what will happen...', and boards the ship.

The Ship

This takes place on the ship, right at the entry point outside his ship.

Arkus then realises that it is not an ordinarily designed ship, and so he did not know where any treasure would be stored. He proceeds through the ship, and then fights a wraith of the Hindalarr, claiming to be guarding 'their greatest treasure, perhaps the greatest treasure of all...', but claims that 'if you are looking for material wealth you may be disappointed.', and proceeds to attack Arkus.

The Storage Room

This takes place in the room at the end of the level, after Arkus has destroyed the wraith.

Arkus proceeds to the next room, and sees a human in a storage tank which has been locked up there, and says that she is probably of no use to him. She then wakes up, asking 'Are you my saviour or my executioner?', and being told that it really depends on what she said next. She said that they imprisoned her because she broke some taboo law, and that they had experimented on her. She claims that she is the key to their greatest treasure, rather than the actual treasure, and says that if he would free her, she would take him to it. She tells Arkus that she is Echelle.
