Story

In Rise of the Shadowhand, the story depicts the increasing desperation and despotism of the Imperium after the emergence of the Tograns as a third credible faction. The Imperium launches an armarda of 10,000 ships purging Freedom Guard space across the galaxy. A fleeing transport ship the Emancipator is attempting to meet up with Freedom Guard forces when their fleet is preyed upon by the Imperium Armarda. Severely damaged and fleeing the fleet, the Emancipator makes a desperate jump through a secret Imperium Foldgate in space, coming out on the other side at the planet Ninevah, where a secret Shadowhand base operates, as well as the Xenite forces. At the same time, the Shadowhand forces are testing an enhanced AI program codenamed Osiris that was recovered from a protoype AI facility in Mars. The Shadowhand however are unaware that Osiris is planning to take over and kill the Shadowhand forces and spread itself out through the galaxy...
