Earth, once bountiful, was nearly depleted of its ability to sustain life. Humankind grew increasingly desperate to find an unlimited source of energy to rely upon. Brilliant minds around the world assembled for the sake of Earth's salvation. At a loss for alternatives, they began experimenting with fission augmented by anti-matter. In their haste, they unleashed catastrophe on an unprecedented scale. Fleeing certain death, the mass exodus of Earth began. This course led to the inception of five parallel streams.
The Earthen, a civilization of those left behind, remained and cultivated a thriving society through patience and perseverance.
The Kathari developed groundbreaking enhancements to the human genome deep below the frigid surface of Jupiter's moon, Europa.
The Marcolians, in pursuit of absolute supremacy, rose and promptly laid claim to the entire red planet of Mars.
The Augencore found refuge on their foundry ship Caine-1, augmenting themselves for deep space survival.
The Shroud, a mysterious presence in the universe- whereabouts currently unknown.
For 10,000 years each Parallel would advance their way of life far beyond the constraints of Earth. New homes that were once considered fiction, became reality. However, at last, the spark that humankind had kindled on Earth those millennia ago has ignited into the unlimited power source that was promised, calling each Parallel back home. This energy-rich invitation brings new conflict, as each Parallel believes Earth is theirs to claim.
