Next-generation graphics:
Black Prophecy uses the latest in graphics technology to produce breathtaking visuals.

Fast-paced action combat
Black Prophecy is more action-oriented than a traditional space simulation. We are trying to avoid long travel times or other activities where the player isn't really doing anything.

Exciting Player vs. Player combat
Black Prophecy allows players to organize big PvP battles and also offers varied PvP missions.

Captivating Story
Black Prophecy's universe, story and background has been created by the award-winning Sci-Fi author Michael Marrak.

Modular ship design
Player ships are not sold as whole, but instead consist of modules like cockpits, wings, engines etc. All these modules are available in different shapes and sizes, which allows the players to customize their ships.

Item modification system
In addition to the modular ship design, players can also further customize their ships by adding modifications to their ship's modules and weapons.

Modular clan station system
Player clans can build clan stations that are expandable through a module system. Different modules add different functionalities to the station.

Resource system
Clans can fight each other to conquer resource stations.

Award and medal system
Similar to an achievement system, players can earn medals and awards for performing specific tasks.

Tactics system
Players can learn and execute breakneck flight manoeuvres

Second Diaspora. Almost a third of humankind leaves the solar system.

2203 (Exon 58)

The species wars are unilaterally declared over. Despite the Sabiador government’s massive efforts, the Jadd Baran do not recognize the peace treaty.

2287 (Exon 142)
The third council of Triloban Alta ratifies the Cybon treaties. They open the way for the creation of the Tyi-protectors, an army of cybernetically manipulated Sapiens. The trigger for this project is the increasing fear of a retaliatory attack by the Genides.

2302 (Exon 157)
Global persecution delirium. Beginning of the construction of Herons Belt, a gigantic defensive ring in Sabiador’s orbit that is supposed to encompass the whole planet and protect it from supposed Genide attacks.

2338 (Exon 193)
Even eighty years after their violent banishment from Sabiador, there is still no military revenge by the Genides against their creators. The first doubts about the use of the Tyi-protectors are voiced.

The hybrid Silpha Uranir is born. As the child of a noble Genide and a high-ranking Tyi officer, unlike other gene bastards she is not killed immediately after birth, but receives a limited right to live. To this day she officially is the only child resulting from the forbidden union of these two human species.

2406 (Exon 261)

Despite hefty protests, the construction of the Uranir protection temple as Sancta Sedes of the Preservers starts on Tarras.

2464 (Exon 319)

2528 (Exon 383)
As a reaction to the dramatically increasing Jadd Baran attacks, the android Händel 69 creates the Andronian Guard on the new colony world Nara.

2535 (Exon 390)

Introduction

In the 26th century, mankind has expanded across the galaxy, yet only few of its colonies are controlled by Humans. The true rulers are the cybernetically enhanced Tyi and the biogenetically perfected Genides. Their striving for total control over all human species drives them into the territory of an ancient alien race that does not tolerate other cosmic civilisations: the “Restorers”.

To survive this war and uncover the motives of the alien’s destructive behaviour, you are forced to join one of the two dominant human races. Their search for the origin of the Restorers becomes a race for survival of all three human species.

The Tyi

The Tyi-protectors were created after the first species wars and are the second superhuman species besides the Genides. Contrary to their genetically manipulated arch-enemies, they have completely devoted their bodies to cybernetics (at first as part of the project, later of their own will).

The trigger for the cybernetic project on Sabiador was its inhabitants' increasing fear of a retaliatory strike by the Genides that surpassed them both physically and mentally. The designation Tyi [pronounced Tai] is an abbreviation for Tactical Yeomen Inhabitants (T.Y.I.).

Almost a century after the creation of the first Tyi-protectors, the burning desire for independence awoke in this new human species that was already in the millions – it peaked in the so-called cybernetic exodus. Many of the Tyi created on Sabiador traveled through space and founded the now powerful colonies Atebathos, Murna and Irata IV.

The Tyi have superhuman strength and endurance. They are resistant to radiation, have independent bloodstreams as well as backup organs, speak all languages and are true multitaskers. They also gather and process data at an increased rate.

The Genides

To be able to better resist the unusual and partially hostile environments in space and on the colony planets, the colonists started experimenting with physical and psychic manipulations on select test subjects a long time ago. The first positive experiments probably took place shortly after the second diaspora started. While some preferred manipulations at the cybernetic level, in form of implants, technical extremities and artificial organs, others did not trust body-bound technology and completely focused on the many possibilities of biogenesis.

The first of the two new human species was created on Sabiador, the apparently aesthetic Genides. They require barely any sleep, heal wounds quickly and can communicate telepathically. In addition, most of them are resistant to disease and epidemics, think faster, detect ultra- and infra-sounds and have a long life expectancy.

After the first species wars and the expulsion of the Genides from Sabiador, six million refugees found a new home on the planet Delta Pavonis II. After being renamed to Geneera, the planet rapidly developed into a respectable economic power.

New generation Genides are exceptionally slim, tall and cultivate very aesthetic bodies. Their heads and bodies are completely hairless (aside from the eyebrows, which are considered a beauty attribute), as body hair is considered a relic of evolution. They wear synthetic or half-organic headgear instead, in form of imaginative wigs, hoods, hats, cloth, etc. as well as organic or half-organic, partially transparent and often also bioluminescent suits.

The Genides' feudal society is based on a pre modern, aristocratically dominated culture, which has taken a military orientation due to the constant threat by the Jadd Baran and the Tyi.
