The Story of Pearl Lands
Humanity has always been driven by ambition and greed. The quest to discover space was no exception to that. When mankind first started space travel to other planets, the endeavor progressed from an exciting development to a financial success, and ultimately to a fight for celestial resources. Nations rose and fell as space quest changed the face of Earth and other terrestrial planets in our solar system, planets which had become new homes for mankind. However, there was a limit to what could be discovered in this solar system…
Captain Heindich of the Tuberis army was an old man who was planning to retire in 2150. Little did he know that he was about to become a legend for generations to come as he was flying his last mission to a dwarf planet far away from our sun. Emerging from deep space at the farthest edge of our galaxy, he found an amazing rainbow of colors undulating across the void. As the curious lines of fire passed by his spaceship, Captain Heindich saw that some of the meteoroids fell on a nearby planet while others continued their journey into the endless darkness. What Heindich found on that small planet were particles of a fallen meteoroid that were rich with an energy source unknown to mankind. He called this unusual, red-colored material “Pearl,” and went on to build the first Pearl-fueled spacecraft facility.
The discovery of Pearl started a new era in both technology and war. This scarce resource, which had also been discovered in minute traces on the outer planets of our solar system, created a race among armies of powerful nations. After several decades of intensive Pearl-based production, these resources started to diminish, and even dangerous attempts to find Pearl outside the solar system didn’t pay off. Then one day a physicist named Zegne Karlhela found a way to locate more of the colorful meteoroids which had passed by Captain Heindich’s spacecraft so long ago. Particle sensors developed by Karlhela could detect small amounts of Pearl even from incredibly long distances. Thrilled by this discovery, powerful nations of the solar system came to their senses maybe for the first time in thousands of years, and understood that to achieve the daring task of reaching the heart of this Pearl material they would have to combine resources. So after long discussion and planning, an army of solar system powers started their journey to unknown worlds using their Pearl-fueled technology.
The discovery of Pearl Lands, a galaxy with abundant resources, changed the face of the space race forever. More and more fleets traveled to Pearl Lands to transport new Pearl to our solar system, an adventure that was not possible before the use of Pearl extensively in every part of space technology. And the gift of Pearl Lands was not limited to Pearl! A rain made of grain, discovered on a Pearl Lands’ planet, created a new energy source for space technologies, and a curious little flower with beautiful shiny petals provided Mana, a seed to be cultivated with utmost care. So with these three new resources previously unknown to mankind, space travel to the farthest points of the Pearl Lands galaxy became a reality, and with colony after colony established, Pearl Lands became a new home for mankind.
Of course war never ended. With the use of new technologies, it just became more sophisticated. Fights for planets turned into a fight for resources, whether by using fire power or trade channels. Prosperity was never enough for mankind. There was always more to gain, and more to develop. New technologies were used in the production of highly sophisticated spacecraft and defense systems, as well as new facilities for the most efficient production.
But one thing that never changed was humanity’s ambition and greed.
Now, it is your chance to claim your leadership in this fight, to command wisely and protect these resources from those who would destroy them and in the process destroy us all. Using the best strategy and the most powerful armies, strike fear in the hearts of your enemies and become the ultimate commander of Pearl Lands!
