The story so far:/Rough Idea of whats going on

One year ago, the Aesir (a unknown and powerful race) destroyed 80% percent of the galaxy in a single attack. The attack some believe is/was the first steps towards an invasion, others that it was a retaliatory strike for the death of the Aesir's leader, Odin. The Aesir claim it was an act of mercy, so that the majority of the galaxy wouldn't have to suffer a slow and painful death that was now coming.

Regardless what remains of the galaxy is now in turmoil. Evil forces that have long been held at bay are now free and intent on completing the destruction of the Galaxy. At the head of this force is the gigantic wolf Fenrir, and the Jotun Surt. It has been prophesied that it will take them 22 (now 21) years to complete their task.

The same prophecies that predicted the time horizon of the galaxy's destruction also gave a small glimmer of hope in an ancient device known as the time matrix. This device has the ability to change time and could be used to save the galaxy. However, the device was hidden long ago and now the only clues to it's location are mysterious maps (that constantly changes), and this piece of prophecy/inscription:

Ragnarok impure,
Gotterdammerung has occurred,
Doom has come early that should not have
Aesir, now Vanir deprived of All-Father
Death of stars shall reveal
One tool that alone
Can destroy destiny or set it right
To find, seek:
Ten keys
Seven gates
Fire, Eye, and Ice
Wake the Wolf unlocked from its tomb
All the legions of Asgard cannot twist time, but a silver ball will.

A group of unlikely champions was assembled and tasked with acquiring the device and saving the galaxy. Through their adventures the size of their group has grown and they do not always get along. In the last stage of the quest for the time matrix things turned extremely deadly. Three members of the group (Heimdall, Marin and Aidan) all had their minds altered by crystals turning them against their comrades. While in this transformed state they gleefully attacked the group and innocents. They delighted in turning the group on one another. In towards the end Svafa, Heimdall’s sister was nearly killed at the hands of Heimdall.

The key to saving the trio and possibly the entire group (for the time being) was a sword forged in an earlier adventure. This sword by either holding it or by being cut by it reversed the affects of the mind altering crystals. A side effect was a loss of memory, the degree of memory loss depended on the length of time for reversion to take place. For Heimdall he has little memory of what took place while Marin has almost no memory loss (The sword when through her gut causing near instantaneous reversion).

A little after the group was reunited, they were quickly attacked by newcomers. During this attack Guy was blinded and Misea seriously injured, and a majority of the group was imbolized by a strange weapon the newcomers had. Needless to say a tactical retreat commenced. A the end of this quest: The seriously injured parties where: Svafa, Marin, Misea and Guy.

During this part, a shadow eclipsed all light emanating from stars. The shadow has disappeared from the stars, however most systems just have the light from their local stars, and still have starless nights. It will take hundred of years for the effects of the shadow to truly disappear. The removal of light also damaged crop production on some worlds. Famine is begin to spread across the galaxy.

Since the end of the last thread Eight months have passed. During this time the group has been following the map around to planet after planet, almost as if touring the galaxy. The Aesir have maintained the restriction on the ship allowing access to the upper level only to Heimdall, Svafa, Idun, Gerd, Marin and Aidan. The bridge is similarly restricted, only the Aesir are allowed in.

Currently the Asgardried is docked in the poor colony world of Yevoh. Once a thriving colony, Yevoh is now struggling and short of food and other supplies. The map at the moment is showing no signs of where they should head next.

The story continues:
