The world of Xilos – battleground between the Ghar and allied forces – is gone; consumed in the vortex of destruction unleashed at its heart. The riddle of the Xilos Gate has finally been solved in a way that not even the infallible IMTel could have anticipated. The second gateway postulated by the Concord exploration teams lay within the depths of the planet itself. Now that gateway has consumed Xilos… or transported it to some portion of the Antarean Nexus… carrying its secrets with it.
What of the survivors, those who have evacuated the world and fled its destruction? It is too early to tell how many remain of those who first embarked upon the Battle for Xilos. Too many deeds of heroism and of sacrifice will go forever unacknowledged. Too many lost in a war that, in the end, none could win. But there has been triumph of a sort. Circumstances have challenged officers and men, commanders have risen to those challenges, and Xilos has forged its heroes as well as its dead. Initial reports suggest that of all their foes, the Concord has much to fear from the Ghar Empire. For the Ghar commanders there may be lessons to learn too… but nothing to fear. For the Ghar fear neither battle nor death. And now they have proven their mettle against the most advanced and powerful forces in all of the Antarean Nexus.
