“All has led to this. The Perfect Fate is about to become a reality. For millions of years I have prepared, and now it is time for the Ottzelloans to fulfill their destiny. This whole galaxy will face its reckoning, will meet its maker... me. Failure is not an option.”

The Second Borealis Galactic War is the name given to a mass-scale galactic conflict in the Borealis Galaxy which spanned from early 2784 to late 2791. Orchestrated by the Dark God of Time Vyro'Ralzora, who wished to use the souls of the Unified Nation of Ottzello to create his Vyro'Ralza, it also gave the opportunity for many other hostile nations to rise and make their move against their enemies, and the galaxy found itself amidst a war between space pirates, maddened doomsday cultists, alien locusts, barbarians and hyperpowerful precursors.
The Second Borealis Galactic War was the largest war of the Age of Conflict and one of the largest of the Borealis Galaxy's history. Trillions of sapients lost their lives to the machinations of Vyro'Ralzora, but it ultimately ended with the defeat of a great number of hostile factions and the second founding of the Polar Crystal Alliance, which would become the galaxy's first successful galactic government in modern history.
The Second Borealis Galactic War was originally created by Technobliterator and OluapPlayer beginning October 6, 2011 up until March 16, 2013. It was a very large scale collaborative fiction which took a long time to make, was huge in scope and ambitious in plot and character development. However, though it was fun for participants involved and there was an overall positive reaction, the war featured poor/lazy writing in places, and was bloated with filler, as well as parts that were silly even as far as comic relief goes. The original war can be found here.
The current revision of that war, beginning 21st March, 2016, is a remake, designed not only to improve the writing and cut out filler and poor writing, but to fit the war in better with updated canon, and hopefully to make it even more enjoyable this time around. Though the plot follows the same skeleton structure as the original war, many parts will be updated. The ultimate goal is for the war to take a shorter amount of time to write than the original.
- Though this is a collaborative fiction, it is also closed, and only users involved in the original war are allowed to participate.
- The events of this war in canon are technically concluded. Therefore, you must discuss any major event before it is added, unless it is a sub-story.
- No belittling of factions, or large fleet sizes or superweapons without permission.
- Try to follow the format of the page (mostly in dialogue form on the war's main pages).
- The co-ordinators have the final say on whether or not your entry is canon, and may mercilessly redistribute, alter or remove any edit you make to the pages.

Prologue: Rise of the Xi'ArazulhaEdit
After years of cold war, the Borealis Galaxy found itself attacked by a force of hostile Essentials known as the Xi'Arazulha, who sought to devour the galaxy. Many other factions would use the chaos as an opportunity to spread their influence, and it would be up to the righteous Zoles Imperium and its allies to try and ward the demonic entities out of their home.
Part 1: Coming of the VagueEdit
The defeat of the Xi'Arazulha proved to be the mere beginning of the war as a new force suddenly arrived to Borealis; a mysterious race of extradimensional beings known as the Vague, seemingly devoid of any reasoning, whose goal was the complete extermination of Ottzello. Tensions would escalate as empires across Borealis saw the opportunity to expand their interests, and the reign of the lawful Zoles and Niaka found itself truly contested.
Part 2: Business of WarEdit
The galaxy fell in disarray due to the actions of the Vague and the Borealis Consortium Network. Ottzello was quarantined in a spacetime prison, while a new concept known as the War Economy begun to spread across the Eastern Arm, private military companies rising to overthrow their governments and sell themselves to the highest bidder. And at the top of it all, Falrik Zaarkhun and Volim Thrava prepared to unleash the apex of their plans upon the forces of Order.
Part 3: The Wrath of GodsEdit
Part 4: Xiyara RisesEdit
Know Ya EnemyEdit
Gratz'kaoz is the most feared Loron of all time, and with good reason. Fre'kloar and his friends would finally learn where the mad warlord came from and his reasons for being who he was, alongside other unpleasant revelations.
Blood on the IceEdit
The influence of the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus reached all the way to Borealis, where it would be spread among the Heleanorian folk. One of them, a man by the name of Harana, would be the instigator of one of the most crippling battles the Zoles Imperium suffered through the war.
The Cards RevealedEdit
The war of Borealis would become entangled with the Andromeda War once an artifact of Andromedan origin was discovered in the galaxy. A race for these items would ensue between the forces of Borealis and the forces of Andromeda, and allowing them to fall on wrong hands would prove to be a fatal mistake.
The Hegdar Warband of the Murgur continuously proved itself a mystery to their people as well as the rest of the galaxy. However, once a mysterious dreadnought aided in a hostile attack at the Murgur homeworld of Kaos, the race of proud barbarians would find themselves forced to work with their enemies to put an end to Hegdar's plans.
