Defend the Imperium of Man
It is the distant future and the Imperium of Man has spread across the entire galaxy, but our days of expansion are long past. Once, when the Emperor lead in battle, and the Imperium was unstoppable. Those days are no more. The Emperor has withdrawn to Earth to rule from his Golden Throne, leaving a thousand wars of attrition in his name where defenders die by the billions. There is little hope for support from Earth and humanity is losing the battle for survival. The only chance lies with the Space Marines, genetically modified warriors of superhuman ability and the pinnacle of human potential. But the Space Marines are few, the galaxy is large and enemies are countless. The situation is most dire in sub-sector Aurelia. It is from this cluster of worlds on the very edge of the Imperium that came the Blood Ravens, a chapter of the Emperor's own Space Marines. Now savage aliens seek to overrun the sector, and break the Blood Ravens once and for all. Captain Davian Thule and a handful of Space Marines lead the raw recruits defending these worlds. Yet, another Space Marine prepares to join this desperate battle, a newly promoted commander, ready to lead in our darkest hour. You are this Space Marine.
