Could You Imagine A Game Concept Built On This?
What could unite a
Roman Legion and the Caledonian army they are fighting?
Or a US Cavalry Company
with the Native American tribes arrayed against them?
How about a highly
trained and motivated Special Forces unit and the terrorists they have been
sent to wipe out at all costs?
What could such a
diverse and mutually aggressive group possibly have in common?
Arden – and the Horde,
Arden, home to a culture that has existed for
thousands of years and which spans dozens of worlds. Regardless, their
sophistication cannot prevent calamity at the hands of an unstoppable nemesis.
Known only as the Horde, this enemy has proven relentless. They have not only
stripped the outer colonies bare, but now threaten the existence of the entire
Ardenese way of life.
Realizing there is nothing they can do
to prevent the inevitable march toward extinction, the Ardenese governing body
comes to a drastic decision. They gather together at their capital city,
Rhomane, and place their remaining genetic heritage in a vast underground ark,
in the care of an advanced AI construct called the Architect. Its
mission? To use Rhomane’s dwindling reserves and safeguardtheir race by reaching out across time and space
toward those whomight be in a position to
help reseed a devastated world at some timein
how soldiers from varying eras and vastly different backgrounds find themselves

reprieve, their relief turns to horror when they discover they face a simple

Fight or die!

Roman legionnaires, far from home, lost
in the mists of Caledonia.

From vastly different backgrounds, these
soldiers are united when they are snatched away from Earth at the moment of
their passing. Thinking they may have been granted a reprieve, imagine their
horror when they discover they have been transported to a failing planet on the
far side of the galaxy, where they are given a simple ultimatum. Fight or die.
Against all odds, this group of misfits manages to turn the tide against a
relentless foe, only to discover the true cost of victory might exact a price
they are unwilling to pay.

The IX. Sometimes, death is only the
beginning of the adventure.
