The Times Are Nightfall
The Fading Suns
In 3998, during the declining years of the decadent Second Republic, Cadiz’s sun began to darken. Others soon followed. The scientists of the Second Republic could not understand or explain the phenomena; the suns had millions of years worth of life left to them. Yet the evidence was (and is) present for all to see; every year for the past thousand years, the suns have dimmed almost imperceptibly. Most believe this signifies the coming of the end: of history, of humankind, of the universe itself. When the last sun’s light is snuffed out, we will all be judged.
Some say that with every jump through a jumpgate, the suns dim a little more. Others say that the ghosts of Anunnaki psychics or demons are draining the energy of the suns. Some blame the Symbiots, or the Vau. Some blame the fading suns for the appearance of monsters on the worlds. But no one has proof.
