Over a thousand years ago, humanity entered a golden age as we took to the stars with the invention of interstellar Spike Drive travel. Our galactic empire, The Terran Mandate, charted the galaxy, colonized distant worlds, and discovered alien life. Exploration-driven innovation led to the development of psionic, new-age Jump Gates -- which connected our most distant frontier sectors and reduced travel times across our empire from many years; to mere days.
But all climbs must come to a fall. Hundreds of years ago -- The Scream , and the resulting Silence, killed all of the psychics in the galaxy in a matter of minutes; or worse -- drove them hopelessly insane. The Jump Gates collapsed, vital supply lines vanished, and our psitech was rendered useless and forgotten -- fragmenting countless worlds into shattered darkness.
Now, The Terran Mandate and its terrestrial origins are a mere myth. Humanity is lost and scattered among the stars -- individual pockets of civilization left to survive, rebuild, and explore anew.
