The year is 2531.
In the year 2531, during the infancy of the Human-Covenant war, human
scientists stumbled upon a new world. Named "Lumoria", the planet was laden
with both flora and fauna as alien as anyone had ever seen before. Nestled
amongst the planet's varying terrain lie architecture left behind by a once
seemingly all-powerful race known as the Forerunners.
But what began as a scientist's greatest dream of study and discovery
quickly turned into destruction and terror when the Covenant found the
planet as well. When the Covenant attacked the human research vessel, the
scientists had no chance. Their final hopes lay in a beacon dropped in
desperation. A beacon found by you. Arriving at the planet aboard the
small, stealthy UNSC Frigate Endless Horizon, your mission is to defeat the
Covenant, discover the mysteries behind this new world, and give humanity
their hope back.
Welcome to Lumoria.
