Reclaim what has been lost. Become Legend.
Humankind made first contact in the 21st century, sending a manned mission to Mars to investigate a moon-sized object traversing the solar system. We called it the Traveler, and its arrival changed us forever. Great cities were built on Mars and Venus. Mercury became a garden world. Human lifespan tripled. We stared out at the galaxy and knew that it was our destiny to walk in the light of other stars.
But the Traveler had an enemy. A Darkness which had hunted it for eons across the black gulfs of space. Centuries after our Golden Age began, this enemy found us.
And that was the end of everything.
But it was also a beginning.
