The Nomad Campaign in Sol


Millions upon millions of year ago a vast, interstellar empire was established. It was ruled over by a race of beings known to us today as the Dom’Kavash. So immense was their realm that as a people they were spread too thinly to watch over it themselves. To solve this problem, they created an entirely new race of sentient, subservient creatures to patrol the stars in their stead. These beings were known as the Nomads. They dutifully reported all findings to their masters and sought out alien life. To ensure that no other species could ever rise up against the empire, the Nomads were ordered to exterminate any species that came to attain the capacity for interstellar flight. So it was. For a time the Nomads lurked in the shadows. They watched over Earth as its inhabitants engaged in endless, pitiful feuds. With the squabbling, however, human technology grew in its sophistication. A once primitive species came dangerously close to the threshold. Lingering there for only a brief moment, they then crossed it. There was no turning back. Having hurtled themselves forth from their system to settle others, the apes had suddenly become a threat.

Acting swiftly to contain this contagion within the empire, Nomad fleets converged upon Sol System and utterly annihilated its inhabitants. Some had been known to escape, while others did so without the Nomads’ knowledge. In the centuries to come they would search for the Alliance sleeper ships that slipped from their grasp. One bastion of resistance was found in Sirius. Their efforts to destroy it came to the brink of success, but were thwarted in the end. The intellect and ingenuity of the humans was underestimated. As a people they were powerful when united behind a common cause. Raised from the ashes, they were capable of even fighting back against the Nomads. Repeated efforts to crush humanity appeared to be in vain. Yes. The contagion was growing relentlessly - spreading rapidly now and occupying dozens upon dozens of star systems. If this species could not be defeated outright their advance would need to be slowed. Expansion by the colonists of Sirius had to be contained. Holding the lines with all their might, the Nomads called to their masters, the Dom’Kavash, to warn them of this emerging danger.
