BACKSTORY

The year is 833x (2099 in hex).  A catastrophic flare triggered mutations in creatures close to the sun. With this newfound power the mutants banded together forming Imperium X with the sole intent to rule the galaxy. But one thing stands in the evil Imperium’s way; the Federation. The Federation has organized Drone Clan Warriors to defeat Imperium X and restore order to the galaxy.
