Left by their creators to exploit a huge yield of resources discovered inside an often-overlooked asteroid belt, a race of barely-sapient mining androids discovered a vein of mysterious HexCrystals that granted them astonishing cognitive powers and galactic ambitions. But with their greater awareness came greater torment, because though they possessed the power to dream of amagnificent existence, they still found themselves enslaved to their original programming, which demanded that they exploit the so-called Miles of Prosperity to its fullest. So as never to forget the faces of the ones that abandoned them to space, the androids donned the ceremonial death masks of their Makers and named themselves the Star Pharaohs.
Wrenching the Miles from its asteroid belt and embarking on a grand crusade, the Star Pharaohs have a new mission: to recover every last shard of Hex Crystal in the galaxy, no matter who or what stands in their way. Pray they do not find what they are looking for on your world… if you want to keep it.
