Tales of the Para-Imperium
January 23rd 2019
Two thousand years since Sol was lost to relentless machines of unknown origin, the Federation of Para-Human Species has now spread over hundreds of light-years. Though the people of the Federation Core live indefinite lives of comfort and ease, they remain vassals to the powerful sovereigns of their Imperial government.
The dissidents, the banished, and the refugees struggle to live free in the Outworlds, where technology is fragile and lives are short. But the constant expansion of the Core constantly threatens to pull them back in.
