The Skopio XV-1 was a massive vehicle built and piloted by Telluris.


Telluris based the design of the Skopio XV-1 on the Skopio, a creature native to Spherus Magna. The vehicle was more or less a war machine, intended to be used against enemy caravans and creatures.

After the Shattering, Telluris was isolated on Bara Magna, and used the Skopio XV-1 to traverse the wastelands, shunned by the rest of society for fear of carrying the mysterious plague that wiped most of his tribe out.

The Skopio was later sabotaged by some Glatorian, and Telluris associated with Sahmad until he could be able to fix it. Later on, Telluris and Sahmad got to the north to see the extinction of the Iron Tribe. Telluris returned to see his vehicle, only to discover the damage. Sahmad found some items that can work to repair vehicles. However, due to Telluris' fate after a fight with Annona and the Skakdi, it is unknown what happened to the Skopio.


The Skopio XV-1 featured the ability to travel using its four mechanical legs. It could also fold these legs up, activating the treads and allowing for greater speed. It also possessed a Thornax Launcher and two force blasters for offensive power, allowing for effective long and close-range attacks.
