History is full of stories of societies that, just as they seem to be at their heights of power, fall to the depths that their citizens could not have imagined. Some of these falls merely passed the reins of powers from the falling empire to a neighboring rising empire, while others brought the downfall of the known world. This fall is one of the latter.
History is also clear that creative forces are ultimately more powerful than destructive forces. Inside every intelligent there is a force which will never be bowed. While it may be temporarily defeated, it will never surrender.
No matter the catastrophe, no matter how long it takes, it is a force that will always find a survival margin.
The Imperium is dead, long live the New Era.
