In the Aftermath of the Dark Nova
How the galaxy sought to heal after such tragedy
Welcome to the galaxy of Barrens End. It is a tricky thing to figure out where to start when telling a story like this, so why not start with the fall of the last great galactic empire and the mysteries surrounding it.
The Dark Nova destroyed the home world of the An-sarra empire which controlled a large portion of the galaxy. There was no warning, no signs of an issue, just sudden, violent destruction. The entire royal family died as did most of the ministers of government. Whatever destroyed the system sent a shockwave through the jump gate network devastating worlds throughout the galaxy. Some worlds still haven’t recovered.
Other than the plethora of conspiracy and fractured loyalties that arose from the Dark Nova, the Tair Kor project gave purpose to many and culminated in the construction of the Cenotaph.
The Cenotaph was meant to be a collective project to bring people together to heal the trauma of the Dark Nova, but its construction and the politics that surrounded it shaped the galaxy to this day.
Next up, we will explore the orders, sects, and organizations that arose after the Dark Nova and how the struggles and strife between them shaped the galaxy.
