1,ooo years ago, the terrible Dwimmerlaik nearly conquered and destroyed the gossamer worlds. They faced solitary worlds, alone and unprotected. Vulnerable worlds with no strong leadership to defend them.
Should the Dwimmerlaik return, they will not find scattered defenseless worlds along the Grand Stair ripe for conquest. No, instead, they will find worlds united and strengthened by their part in the Ascendancy.
The Ascendancy is now the greatest empire in the multiverse. It grows in power and size every day. Worlds will be made safe, lest they become a beachhead for the enemy. The Ascendancy will grow larger and more powerful, for the good of all.
The Conciliatore are those honored to defend the Ascendancy. Handpicked by Lord Bastiano, they are his greatest warriors. They will keep the Ascendancy strong, no matter the cost.
