On the frozen world of Kalus, the once a secret base of operations of Clan Taldryan that holds the mystical Orb of Pomojema has been uncovered by the Collective. Knowing about the usability of Kyber crystals for augmenting advanced weapons the Collective raiding team immediately began breaking up the giant orb in order to take it off planet.
Unknowing that their operation was watched by the prying eyes of the Taldryan Lorekeeper, informations were spread over the Clan's Intelligence Network and the Clan Summit immediately began formulating a plan to secure the Orb before it can be removed from its hidden resting place.
Time is of crucial matter when the combined fleets of the Clan and its two Houses leave for the Rybanloth System, knowing that they have to stop the Collective before they escape with the Shards of the Orb or manage to call for reinforcements.
Your entry has the opportunity to shape the storyline of Clan Taldryan.
