"APOSIMZ is an artificial planet. Its diameter is 200,000 KM. The artificial celestial body APOSIMZ measures 120,000 KM in diameter. Most of its volume is its core space, which is covered by a superstructural shell. Fifty centuries ago, the people who lost the war against the core lost their right to reside legitimately on APOSIMZ, and were stranded on the frigid surface. They face rampant Frame Disease and aggressive automatons which appear frequently on the Ruins level. Yet even so, somehow the people survive."[2]

Shio, Eo, Biko and Etherow, residents of the White Diamond Beam, are heading back home from gathering provisions when suddenly a girl appears, with the Rebedoan Empire's soldiers in hot pursuit. The girl asks for their help in keeping safe a “code” and seven mysterious “bullets.” This chance encounter marks a major shift in the fate of the entire planet...
