Description: The intergalactic empire is no more... The billions of beings who were part of the high-tech elite have passed beyond the physical realm and entered a world of pure thought and energy. Of course, not everybody wanted to go... And some who wanted to go, couldn't afford it.
With the elite gone, the empire has collapsed. Now, with nobody 'in charge' of the galaxy, secret societies and ancient clans of mystics are emerging from the shadows.
Many of them wield strange powers or have access to Elite technology. Can the PC's use their powers to forge a new government from these factions, or will the universe degenerate into violent Anarchy?
Picture a cross between Babylon 5's Techomages and the insipid 'Left Behind' series...
