What is part of the "game" and what is real? {SPOILERS?}
I just stared the game and am confused on some points. Maybe I'm supposed to be confused still, but it seems like:

- The planet (Shadoon) is real - owned by an entertainment corporation and where the "game" is played
- Players control fake bodies via quantum technology from remote locations (Earth)?
- The people met at the beginning of the game are real people who maintain the game.

Questions:
- Are people in the town and the various factions you run quests for all NPCs, or are they actual people? (ie: the 4 factions)
- Is the Track of Ancients an actual real thing or just created for the CrossWorlds game? Same for the native Shads?
- Similarly, is the whole "Seeker" bit just a way to gamify exploration of the planet, or is it pure fiction?
- Info terminal indicated government is ruled by 10 high level political figures...is this fake too?

Not sure what is "real" and what is just part of the game - but maybe that is the point.

You can definitively find the answers to most of this by playing the game and tracking down all the little pieces of lore tucked away here and there. The short answer though is that CrossWorlds is fiction, and when you're in the Playground, anyone you see not dressed as a player is almost certainly an AI-controlled NPC. When you're looking at the encyclopedia, anything in the CrossWorlds tab is the fiction behind the MMO. Anything in the General tab concerns the "real" world and technology of CrossCode.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind as I keep playing!

Technically though they're all NPCs because its a SP game. This would be one weird game to talk about if they made it MP.
