The lands of light are prosperous and rich, an Enclave of truth and order sur-rounded by the twisted and barren lands of the dark, war ravaged plains known as the Outlands. Over the centuries the rift has started to close, and skirmishes along the border have become more and more frequent. It is only a matter of time before these altercations turn into a full scale war. Take the side of light or dark as the prepare for the imminent war.
The skies darken as Harbinger enters a solar system, dwarfing planets and leaving devastation in its wake. Entire civilizations are cleansed, planets eliminated. The majority of the survivors fill the ship’s work camps. Those less fortunate are released to the laboratories where vicious experiments eventually rid them of their sanity. But a few have escaped and formed an underground society deep within the forgotten levels of the behemoth. Equipped only with what they can scavenge, the denizens of the wastelands must resist the relentless patrols sent for them. A ship this size has many places to hide and much technology to exploit.
