Intro Two: 6,000

The Empire was over 6,000 years old at this point. It's creation was bloody, the final outcome of a civil war across six planets and two star-systems. But it had dominated for so long that its age was now meaningless, a group of digits to celebrate whenever the last two were "zero-zero".

Much had happened in those years. Technology had moved beyond anyones wildest dreams, new planets had been colonised, and older planets had been abandoned. The Empire had spread to sixteen new stars and dozens of planets.

But none of that mattered now. Nothing for the last 6,000 years matter once war starts again within the Empire. 6,000 years mean nothing when you are grateful to have survived the last five minutes and are praying to survive the next five.

Intro One: Drip
