“Let me tell you a story, of the Oncoming Storm, the Darkness of Mars, and the Rise of the Diadochi. It was at that time during the start of the Age of Secession when one of the greatest crimes against humanity was committed. This was the time when the majesty of the Sol System was reduced to nothing but ashes, the blood flowed freely and everywhere, borgite and humanist hated each other and fought to the death, and greedy men and women sought thrones to salve their own egos and self-importance, seeing power as a right rather than a responsibility. And it was all in the name of this planet – Mars.”
The Causeway; what it is, no-one outside of the Third Empire knows for sure. The Age of Secession takes a much darker turn, continuing with the House Lords and Ladies vying against each other. This is the story of the Diadochi, the successors to the Emperors of Mars, and the families that fight for that old title.
