Teaser text[edit]

"Just like everything in this stupid, pointless war!".. And thus utters the epithet for the Succession Wars. Come with us as James Swallow takes us back into the darkness of the Succession Wars. Before the Helm Memory Core, before the 4th Succession War changed everything, decades before the Clans. James takes us to a dark world and a darker war. In such a dark time, it takes only a little light to gleam out and give us hope.
