We are very excited to share our new collab with zakalwe-x! We are fans of his artwork for some time now, and when he introduced his bounty hunter series, well we couldn’t resist to ask if this concept can be part of our ETH-MEN Universe. So it happend! We made a custom ERC-721 contract for Zakalwe-x, which he will control completely, we will integrate these Space Reavers on our website and we will make ETH-MEN Action figures of them (duh). These orginals works will be unique 1 of 1! Read about their history in the next part of this article!
A Brief History of the Space Reavers
In the beginning, there was void. Several millennia passed then rose the Voyagers. In an accelerated juncture of time, the birth of the Outlaws emerged. Pirates, Raiders, and the degenerate scum of the galaxies were ubiquitous. Most groups found a home on the Rim, the outer edger of the six galaxies.
The Ghost Cloud storms concealed their fleets and they avoided detection. Law and Order was absent in space. Control of the open void was a zero-sum game. The most notorious group were none other than the Star Reavers. Being the only organized Raiders on the Rim, the men and women can hold their own in an altercation, whether in a shootout or in a dogfight.
The warrior ferocity they displayed was feared by both the Law and the Lawless alike. A force to be reckoned with, the Reavers left the trading routes of the galaxy in a trail of misery and disaster. By the beginning of the 41st century, majority of the 6 galaxies were occupied and controlled. Routes were protected by a more centralized force and the reconstruction of the Chronostops made travelling easier. Pirate and Raider attacks faded to space dust as time passed.
Civilization had crept closer to the Rim and the Star Reavers knew the age of piracy had ended. After a humiliating defeat in a failed raiding run by a coalition of intergalactic lawmen, they were forced beyond the Rim into the Black. Many members drifted off into hiding and others died. Only a handful of the Star Reavers remained and they needed to find a new purpose in civilization.
