Humanity had colonized the nearby stars for hundreds of years, but it wasn't until the invention of Gates that they could travel farther. Gates were one-way trips to random destinations, often taking one far across the galaxy. No-one knew a new gate's ultimate destination until it was finished and the first journey undertaken.
Gatestriders, a nomadic colony of humanity, took pride in gate travel and the discovery of new areas of space. When resource rich planets were discovered, they would send Reaper teams to terraform the planet and mine its wealth for fortune and glory.
One day they discovered the planet designated Em-8ER. This is where we encountered the Tsi-Hu: shapeshifting sentient aliens who command huge creatures, known as Kaiju, into battle. This is how the war started.Visit Website
