Galactic Terran Alliance
Between the Ashes picks up only a few years after the GTI Rebellion has been defeated. Much of the Galactic Terran Alliance's military has been destroyed and as such the GTA has reorganized it's fleet assets across the many systems in Terran-Vasudan space. The headquarters of the GTA have been moved to Delta Serpentis following the loss of the Sol jump nodes. The GTA is focusing it's efforts in systems that require structural and political reconstruction. Many system's leaders have taken advantage of the GTA's stripped military power for their own gain.
Parlimentary Vasudan Empire
The Parliamentary Vasudan Empire, despite having lost its home system of Vasuda during the Great War, has lost little of its military might. It moved its headquarters to Aldebaran and has focused much of it's military resources to combating the Hammer of Light. The PVE and GTA are still keeping a 'cease-fire' treaty and are starting to develop a mutual respect. There have been an increasing number of military operations conducted in cooperation between the two.
Hammer Of Light
The Hammer of Light are a rogue Vasudan faction dedicated to Vasudan prophecies that they believe are referring to the Shivans. During the Great War they focused their efforts on assisting the Shivans. However, with the Shivans in complete defeat, the HoL's motives and goals have become somewhat unclear. They are often caught raiding convoys and supply depots while spouting generic religious warnings and threats.
BtA started off as a small project by Mjn.Mixael to cover multiple aspects of the Reconstruction period. The story became almost too large and was split into three parts. Mjn.Mixael decided to work only on the first part and make it a complete story on it's own. That part is called Slaves of Chaos.
MjnMixael was able to recruit a small team and work began to progress quickly.
