Thousands of years ago, a malfunctioning warp drive sent a colony ship to a far off galaxy named Geminon, leaving them cut off from Earth. Over millennia this colony grew and splintered into several civilisations with different motivations and beliefs. These groups grew and ventured to new planets, expanding their territory across several hundred planets within their new known galaxy.
Your faction - your people - are the vast and impenetrable Empire of the Holy Monarchy. Operating from Planet Bozidan, God King Hadrian rules in his eternal omnipotence. His word marks every decision and carves out the Holy Law. Their colonialist expansion and religious dogma has spread too thin and created friction within the Empire; separatist splinter cells harass the borders of their terrain, hellbent on disrupting the system or dismantling the monarchy entirely.
It is for this reason that the Imperial Navy is such a vast and expansive military force within the faction. However, Grand Admiral Absolom is not your typical zealot; he is cold, calculated and tactical at every turn. He saw the growing threat of individuals, called ‘The Marked’, chosen in secret by a pantheon of quarreling deities to work their bidding amongst mortal men, and decided that something would have to be done. He ordered the formation of a paramilitary crew composed entirely of Marked but loyal members of the Empire, to seek out and destroy the spread of the Marked Ones before their powers become publicised - and weaponised.
You will be playing a member of this crew. Aboard The Argentine, your crewmates are your family and your Captain’s word is law. Are you willing to take up the challenge and defend the Empire from the Gods themselves?
