Milky Way Galaxy

The Galaxy

Humanity has been a space-faring species for thousands of untold years. Nations have risen and fallen, figures have achieved power and have fallen, wars have been fought and ended, and much more. However, most of surviving recorded history has only existed in the past thousand years or so.

Most historical records before the Great Scourging have been either destroyed or lost to time. Some have survived the centuries, and historians have been able to piece together a picture of the past.
