Astral Saga: Stars of Strife
There is a dark and malignant force at work in the Al’Karai galaxy, which brings madness and ruin to all that it touches. It is the Ire. Little is known about the Ire, other than that it is a power driven by malicious intent. If not stopped, it will drown the universe in a darkness unlike any other.
The Ire is known to corrupt those it touches, tainting entire species, warping their forms and making them slaves to darkness. In other cases, the powers of the Ire can be wielded directly, a power that was not meant for mere mortals.
So great a threat is the Ire, that there is only one force powerful enough to keep it at bay: The Crowns.
