The Collapse and The Dark Age

The Golden Age burned bright—and the night that overtook us after the Collapse was swift and total.

Incalculable waves of destruction ripped through Sol, decimating populations all around the system. If the stories are to be believed, this event marks the arrival of the Witness and its forces in their first attack on the Traveler. That day, the Traveler saved us from certain extinction.

The tally of suffering may be beyond comprehension. But in the following decades, the City lifted itself from the ash, gathering survivors. Guardians rose to challenge alien hordes. The Dark Age swallowed so much of our history… but hope never died.
