Here Be Dragons
Age of Strife
A time of anarchy and loss. The Age of Strife followed the Dark Age of Technology where most of mankind’s technical advancements stem from. The first psykers began to manifest, alien races invaded and subjugated human worlds and the forces of chaos became a pandemic. The Age of Strife ended with the formation of the Great Crusade by the God-Emperor and the introduction of his Legionares Astardes (Space marines) in the reconquest of Holy Terra.
