In The Beginning.
In the beginning, there was nothing, then came the advent of creation. As matter and energy spread across the cosmos forming The World of the Living, The In-Between and everything they contain so too did Lust. Lust, along with Anger, Joy and Fear form the so-called Primary Drives which guide all sapient beings. Although it originally existed in a formless state as the universe grew and changed and thinking beings came into existence Lust and the other Primary Drives gained a more corporeal state as their power grew.
As mankind grew and evolved from the single-celled organisms that served as their origins their ability to experiences and shape reality grew with them. While their passions and drives shaped the living world in drastic ways the effects of their existence were even more pronounced in The In-Between.
Lust is one of the fundamental emotions that drives all sentient beings to some extent. Lust encompasses a number of different drives beyond the simple need to breed. As one of the primary drives Lust also encompasses desire in all its forms and when used offensively can drain an enemy of their desire to fight, lowing their defense and reducing their initiative fur the duration of combat.
Most commonly found at nexuses where passion is abundant. Pure lust can be harvested from a number of sources including sexual encounters, moments of intense longing, and even places of great fulfillment where it may be mingled with Joy. Places of debauchery, such as parties, strip clubs, and other places which cater to such experiences tend to harbor Lust Nexuses.
Lust Nexuses take the form of shimmering, translucent pink orbs which seem to exude desire itself. Harvesting a Lust Nexus causes the player to relive the experience which first gave birth to the nexus as though they were living the event itself. Lust Nexuses, like all nexuses, differ depending on the events which spawned them and some may allow variations in choice others will be rigid and the player will simply observe the event without being able to affect it.
