Era: The Consortium is the story of a Colony Ship launched from Earth and the habitable world it discovers, Taranis. The game follows the inhabitants of Taranis as they create a society, encounter alien races and explore the space nearby.
However the history of the Consortium is not all as it seems. It has been manipulated for its entire existence by ‘Shades’, the elite agents in the employ of the mega-corporations that control the Consortium, primarily Hayden Bank. Supported by Hayden Bank’s huge infrastructure, they have had access to technology and weapons that are only dreamed of by other factions and have strengthened the grip of the most politically powerful and financially wealthy company in their society through murder, blackmail and theft.
They are not unopposed! The Resistance responds, creating a corps of “Phantoms”, specially trained to fight Shades. These operatives track and prevent Shades from completing their missions, providing new hope to the Resistance.
