With war officially ended, one major question continued to loom over the Earth Empire: what would become of the institution of the throne? Fearful of the danger to the Articles of Empire, both the Venusian Lords and the elected government recognized that compromise was necessary, but what solution could satisfy the wildly divergent expectations of those two groups? Facing such an unprecedented constitutional crisis, popular heroes like Daragh Ryan would be asked to make unthinkable sacrifices in order to protect the future of the Empire they had fought to save during the Martian War.
