The galaxy is in a state of termoil, as anyone could expect. An ancient empire that lived in peace for centuries has decided to 'share' the peace they enjoyed for so long. Under the rule of the young Eugene Bromium, the Thaladine Empire has embarked on a bloody campaign that threatens to engulf the galaxy whole. Planet after planet has already fallen to Thaladine's forces, and you are among those effected.
Whether among the denizens already conquered, or a soldier about to face the enemy head on, you've recognized one thing. This war must be stopped, if the shadow behind these events is to be confronted.
