It is set in our galaxy with some alien species, magic and two sides of the eternal conflict The precursors of light and the dark makers of darkness exist. It also has dark themes and focus on wars, death and uncertainty. Also some factions have unconventional themes to them and this campaign is more like a Lawful good versus chaotic evil.

In the Year 2045 A evacuation project known as Project exodus was a last ditch to protect the people of earth by building a warp drive for each spaceship known as super carriers and evacuating to mars over 4 billion people were saved. However the warp drives did too well and sent the Super carriers in the outer rim with one Super carrier disappearing to the west of the galaxy the super carriers landed on the closest known as Akaba soon people begin to build towns, cities and outposts and even began colonizing other planets and formed the new government known as the The Star Allies which gave rise the the corporation Astraeus.
