Welcome to Anareta
For 15000 cycles, the Pyxis Globula
stood witness to the ruined legacy of the fallen Precursors. In their wake, civilizations rose and fell, spreading along ancient hyperlanes, which gradually faded, making travel slow, expensive and dangerous.
Eventually, younger species invented Dive-Drives
to regain FTL ability. Ships soared once more through the Void, bringing worlds ever closer together. This incredible era was overshadowed by a dark truth : using the most powerful dive-drives resulted in the slow but certain destruction of Hyperspace
, the abyssal dimension swum through with every jump.
Without warning, hostile fae-like beings from Hyperspace, given the moniker of Oberon
, emerged in a torrent of arcane fire. Within 50 cycles, system after system had fallen to eternal darkness.
Out of the jaws of impending annihilation, a secret society directed by the Runewarden
led millions of survivors to three hidden Precursor Arks
. These blessed few left their galaxy behind, using the Ark's incredible dive-drives to initiate the Great Jump
, warping away in search of a new home. For these pioneers of fortune, a new future begins in the worlds of the faraway cloud known as the Circinus Stream
Welcome to the Circinus Stream
, a magellanic speck nested within the Pinwheel Cluster
. Its colonies are the culmination of 150 cycles of unprecedented efforts towards establishing an extra-galactic foothold out of three Ark ships.
