It is the far future, and the noble Empire rules the galaxy. From fabled Avalon, where Guinevere the Empress Eternal has ruled for ten thousand years, to the furthest frontier, the Empire has protected and watched over humanity since Arthur Star-King first unified the galaxy and defeated the Sa’axion invasion.
Since then, the Order of the Star Knights have stood as protectors against the many threats to the Empire’s citizens. The Star Knights are the women and men who defend the galaxy, great warrior-mystics empowered by genetic engineering, fantastical technology and the mysteries of the Fey, as passed down by the Companions of Nimue. Each Knight is a match for dozens of regular humans, and together they lead the mighty armies of the Empire.
But now, the Empire is in the greatest danger it has seen in a thousand years. Zhcottii pirates have begun raiding into the heart of the empire from their hidden bases in the galactic core. The Pixxtish Mecha-Legions have been sighted attacking worlds along the Northern Rim. And, worst of all, the extra-galactic Sa’axion Inevitability have been seen again, swallowing up worlds along the Sa’axion Arm to the galactic south-east. There are even whispers that Mordred, the corrupted clone-son of Arthur created by the sorceress Morgana after her banishment, has been seen all over the galaxy, moving to some inscrutable purpose.
The tide begins to turn against the Empire, and the Star-Knights are needed more than ever. And if they cannot hold back the tide, then the Final Battle, where Arthur reawakens to defeat his greatest enemy for the final time and, in doing so, sleep forever.
In expectation of that dire day, a fleet has been assembled and sent forth by Guinevere Herself to unveil and defeat the Empire’s true threats. Mighty battleships and whole wings of fighter craft led by Star-Knights young and old.
Legend of the Star-Knights is a light, actiony space opera take on the Arthurian legends with a heavy admixture of Star Wars, particularly the Clone Wars TV show. Expect massive space battles, laser-sword fights and dramatic villains.
Feel free to make up your own Star-Knight, or re-imagine one of the classic Arthurian characters (except for Guinevere, Arthur, Merlin and Nimue). Creating your own cards is heavily encouraged!
