Forces battle for control of the doomed hive-world of Zephrys. Once an affluent Imperial hub of ‘exotic mineral’ production, Zephrys has recently become a pivotal anchor-point within the Pariah Nexus. The world’s three principal hive-cities surround the vast, mineral-rich desert of Mohara. But all is not as it seems beneath the trackless wasteland – as dozens of colossal blackstone obelisks have arisen from breath the scorching sands. Unrelenting sandstorms lash at the hive-cities and scattered mining sites as the desert itself rises to scour the unwary.
Ancient tomb-complexes stir to life far beneath the Mohara’s dunes – as Zephrys’ true masters awaken from their aeons-long slumber… As the hive cities are buried under sand and the human populace of Zephrys dies by the millions – the Blackstone Pylons hum with otherworldly resonance. The powerful signal they emit – launched into the deepest reaches of the void – is a call to their makers… The Silent King and his necron legions are returning home to Zephrys. Now, forces from across the galaxy – each with different goals of their own – are converging upon the doomed world.
Will you conquer Zephrys and harness the mysterious Blackstone for your own purposes? Have you been sent to purge it of all life, wiping it’s memory from the stars? Or will you fight to defend it’s hive-cities, allowing their citizens to stand freely?
