The Ground is Haunted . . . By Soil Ghosts!

Kit Lau posted the backstory for the Soil Ghosts on his Acid Rain World Instagram page!

Soil Ghosts
Being described as devils by Argurts government’s propaganda, the Soil Ghosts are living in the desert area where resources were exhausted by its former state. They build tents on the deserted buildings. They rob against the traders who export Argurts’ agricultural produce to Omanga but they seldom take the lives of the traders.

Omanga!

Kit Lau updated the Acid Rain World blog with the story of the Omanga!

Omanga has developed nuclear technology and started to use nuclear plants to generate power. As nuclear power is far more efficient than fossil energy, they have more resources to develop biochemical and mechanical technology. Omanga has expanded the use of nuclear power to an unprecedented level. Finally its first generation nuclear plant at the north exploded in an accident and released large quantities of radioactive particles into the atmosphere. This catastrophic disaster has contaminated half of the territory of Omanga and some of the neighbouring states. Most of the populations at the north moved to the south. With resources pressure, Omanga has become more aggressive and started its invasion to the border of Gafia.

As always, be sure to check out Big Bad Toy Store and the Toy Source for all your Acid Rain World figures and vehicles!
