All hail the conquering hero! … The one who was supposed to save us all.’
Halo 5 Guardians

Under a sheet of gunfire and explosions, as rain and thunder thrash the darkened earth, a multitude of heroes descend into the carnage. Colony worlds have been unexpectedly attacked. Chaos has been unleashed by a plague of evil terror as corrupt Governments rely on force of arms and stealth technology to maintain authority. Human, mechanical and fantasy forces unite and collide in a universe without trust. Humanity is at stake and the power of love must prevail.

In the distance, amidst the analogue ruins of a fading biosphere, past the weather worn flags of a once-powerful empire, a monument emerges from the wreckage; an altar to a lost nation – no – to the dreams of civilisation itself.

But for as long as the wars continue to rage with their unrelenting, glory-seeking heroes and until the power ballads, unfettered in their heart-breaking sincerity, cease to be sung, civilisation will silently, willingly, pleasurably continue to fade to black.
