The Year is 1335AE, the Post-Earth Calendar. Humanity has fled the blasted, scarred surface of their home-world and drifted through the expanse of space, a race of curious nomads among the black. They settled new worlds and made contact with an established galactic community with mixed reactions to newcomers. It is a galaxy divided, factions vying for control over resources and unclaimed systems in the expanse. Gods help us all, it's just like home!
