Humanity is in its final days. Rex Talion stands triumphant as the invasion of Earth has begun. The Degans and their allies roam the world destroying everything in their wake. Yar is no more. The
Synod sits in the Beyond indecisive while the rest of the Collective follows suit. The way is clear and seemingly nothing can stop Talion and the Degans.



The Discarded One has taken notice and the all-consuming evil being moves across the cosmos towards the planet he vowed to destroy centuries ago. If Earth falls, the universe will follow.



Evil and darkness will reign supreme.



Regina Tate has watched her world literally crumble around her. Regina’s son and best friend were murdered by her brother, Rex Talion. Quentin, the man she loves, and the one being capable of
halting the horrors befalling the planet, has gone into a self-imposed exile on the moon in an attempt to atone for his past crimes.



Earth is alone because each planet in the Collective fears for its own survival and will offer no assistance to the war-torn planet. The outlook for Earth is overwhelmingly bleak.



Except……



There are a few special individuals who decide to rise to the challenge and oppose the forces of evil.



The war to end all wars has begun. The battle for Earth and all of existence is at stake.



This is the story 4.6 billion years in the making. More secrets are revealed. Lives are lost and worlds are destroyed.



The universe will never be the same again… if it survives.

The Beyond assess the situation as war has erupted throughout the universe. The worlds in the Collective assemble their protection forces.The arrival of the Discarded One on Earth is imminent.


Author Note for Newcomers:


Greal (GRE-ahl)- The most powerful weapon in the universe. The chalice like object can destroy all of existence if its full power is unleashed. The origins of the Greal are shrouded in mystery and
its creator unknown. During the first Megiddo, Yar sent Aron to Spectromolus to consult with Scribe on how the war could be won. Scribe told Aron that whichever side owned the Greal would win the
war. The Greal was located by Aron and the side of Yar defeated the forces of the Discarded One.


Quintessence is the original name given to Quentin by the Synod. When he came to Earth, he called himself Quentin to assimilate with humans.


Vestigare (VESS-tah-gear)- The group of interstellar investigators and defenders of the Way of Yar. These individuals from various planets in the Collective were chosen by the Synod and given
specific missions throughout the universe. The Vestigares each carry an insignia (mistaken for coins by humans) symbolic of the duties they perform throughout the cosmos. They are made of the same
alloy as the armor worn by the Vestigare and they were embedded into the shoulder of their shield as a badge of honor.
