There is no time for peace. No forgiveness. No respite. There is only war.
The galaxy writhes in the mailed fist of all-consuming conflict. The oppressive Imperium of Mankind teeters on the brink of annihilation, beset upon all sides by heretic warlords, psychic witches, and rapacious alien empires. Fierce battles rage in every star system and upon every planet, as loyalists, traitors, and aliens tear reality itself apart in their war for dominance. Every day, the flames rise higher.
This is a more terrible era than ever before, and there is no peace amongst the stars...
