Having just emerged from refuge in the Prime Roots, hominkind spread across the New Lands with hopes of rebuilding the civilizations lost to the Great Swarming. Within a few years, a multitude of outposts had been established in the wilderness to protect these regions, provide resources, and facilitate trade and growth of homin settlements. Several factors, however, such as the arrival of Kitins in 2490 and growing tension among the homin races, led to the outposts' abandonment by 2494.
Fifty years later, both the Karavan and Kami offered homins the chance to reclaim some of the decrepit outposts for the purpose of aquiring the precious resources beneath the planet's surface. Today, guilds may either confront each other in battle or negotiate peacefully in order to obtain and manage an outpost.
The guilds that control the Outposts can install a drill there in order to harvest special materials.
There are three types of drills, offered to homins by the higher powers of Atys, the third has been developed by the Marauders and appeared on the bark in 2612:
The quality of the products corresponds to the maximum harvesting level in the region where the outpost is located. Nevertheless, it happens that the extraction goes better than expected or on the contrary partially fails, so the outposts sometimes generate products of different quality than expected.
The major interest in Outpost Products causes fights between guilds for their possession.

The complete list of Outposts, whether buildable or not, is available on the page Atys Places/Outposts
After the big atysquake of 2608 deep changes occured in Nexus OPs : first Kami, Karavan and Marauders moved their teleportation machines to old outpost locations; and second, some bandits installed on the empty places to take benefit of the newly revealed materials.
In January 2023 Patch 00939: Implementation of the new Kings system on all continents. The system is identical to that of the Prime Roots, with the difference that the 6 species chosen are among the only ones present in the region.
