[align=center]A small grain of sand in the vast universe
...nothing special, just a cluster of stars and some nebulae
...just one out of millions of similar places...
But it was chosen by the Monkey god!
A new home for mankind.
The first Nomad war is over and people in the colonies have forgotten about the Nomad threat.
The governments of the four houses have gone back to their business and rebuilt what was destroyed.
A time of peace and economic growth has endured.
But Sirius is in danger!
The Nomads are not dead, but are now even more powerful than before.
Pilots are disappearing, stations are attacked, single ships of unknown origin and material are again spotted all over the colonies!
Once again Mankind is at war!
The Nomads are back, stronger and more dangerous than before.
They control several systems and operate all over the colonies.
This time however, mankind has an ally.
The Monkeys from Planet Primus share our aim to destroy the Nomads!
They have the blessings of the Monkey God and superior knowledge and technology. But the Nomads are strong and victory is still far away.
Humankind needs your help.
Monkey Universe - A Troubled Era
With the nomads gaining strength everyday, the Robots, Monkeys, Order and House governments were finding themselves under increasing pressure to hold them back. The Nomads have already gained footholds in other systems. They have also learnt new tactics and fighting skills from analysing those of their foes. Now with these new skills they have become a force to be reckoned with.
However the Robots and Monkeys were not to be outdone. They have built two embassies in order for them to liaise battle plans alongside their house system allies. They also developed new and improved ships the likes of which Nomads had never seen before.
The robots had also forged a deal with the mercenaries. Providing the mercs with a system right on the Nomads doorstep. A system known as Robot 2 where the mercs could assemble there fleets, repair there ships and make necessary changes to their armaments.
These fragile links are however in the balance as a new menace sweeps from recently discovered systems. The Fugitives appear to be artificial and deadly, other than that little is yet known.
The question now is do you have what it takes to fight against forces that threatens the entire population of Sirius........The Nomads are here and here they intend to stay, The Fugitives double the peril. The future is in your hands, can you make the difference?
