Rejoice, citizens of the empire! The Custodians have at long last returned from their 10,000 years of exile in the face of the new galactic crisis that threaten the very survival of all species in our galaxy. Rejoice, citizens, for the Custodians have promised to lend us aid in our time of need, and our new deal shall grant us protection the likes of which no nation has enjoyed for millennia. No harm shall come to us ever again. Rejoice!

The Zenith of Fallen Empires: Return of the Custodians submod is the final instalment to the storylines that began in the Origins submod, and brings those stories to a satisfying close. Events unfold shortly after the appearances of vanilla end game crises, and with the return of the Ancient Custodians, galactic affairs could become interesting. For those that seek a challenge or have a death wish, you will get the Fallen Empire fight you asked for.

Add-on Features:

  • New story and an optional end game crisis

  • Adjustable difficulty via difficulty submods

  • Original Empire Technologies attainable by all Ascended Empires

  • Unique Events and Dialogue for Original People and Ringworld Empire Origins.
