So the Protectors Opens the portal with the help of the raiders, thinking it will teleport humans back to earth but instead it brings a Ancient Powerful Strong ass General Warlord from 15000 years ago with his freaking army ready to take over the Broken Planet and other planets as well.

Now what will the Raiders do to stop him?

Will they throw everything they got at him foolishly without any plans?

Or will they try to get more firepower from the three factions?
And if so, the one faction that makes the most sense of working together with the raiders to defeat an enemy in common is Hades Division since they're human, they should know how much of a threat Shamash is to Earth if he isn't dealt with immediately.

And who's in the HADES DIVISION??? EFFING ANESKAAAA

OR
Since Aneska isn't that crazy about being under the Thumb of Gen. Krausher she pretends to lose the Destroyer of Worlds boss fight and meets up with Harec after hearing  of him from her former colleague (Mikah, Lycus Dion & Hans).

Harec tells her of his plans to send the humans back, she agrees, helps kick Shamash ass with her Mech right next to Beast Loath, Harec and the Gang. Happy ending...or is it.

The first and most poignant thing wrong with this prediction is that the invading factions; Umbra, Hades, Fifth and the Elite Corps. are all human. Yep. Which means based off this logic any of the factions would have as much to gain or lose from helping the Raiders which simply isn't the case.

The Fifth Council, for instance, has long been dogged by rumors of the alleged Sixth Council. If anything the Sixth Council will occupy the Fifth Council's territory. There would really be no better time to strike than after the Fifth Council's Hive computer has been so debilitated and would fit in with how Council insurrections have happened in the past. This pretty much guarantees that Aneska will not be in the Fifth Council and that the Council would gain very little from helping the Raiders during a time of internal turmoil.

The Hades Division invested greatly in the construction of Hecatoncheir and without it they are no match for the prolonged life spans of the Council or the tumultuous hordes of the Wardogs. Aneska was die hard loyal to Krausher and if the Hades Division was in any shape to act then she would definitely be running it and thus would not have time to be a Raider, if they were even in some type of peace.

Which means the Hades Division is not going to be much help to anyone after their calamitous failure. Because Aneska is probably the next Raider the Hades Division will not be in any sort of shape resembling the one under Krausher's brilliant commanding.

The Umbra Wardogs are a strong and hearty group of space pirates and Aleph addicts. The Aleph addiction gives them great personal fortitude to the point that they never consider even wearing body armor. The space pirate in them means they will loot and destroy whatever they can't. Krausher's mech, an amazing Aleph powered suit of armor, would not only be brimming with Aleph but also would have a multitude of heavy weapons caches installed on it, as we know. They would be on that mech the second it hit the ground and they would have stripped it bare and taken anything valuable while burning the rest. One of these valuable things would no doubt be Aneska.

What happens to Aneska after the Wardogs find her probably has to do with recovering her and trying to employ her as a weapon, as they did with HIVE, because they could never simply hire her as they did with Rak and the other mercenaries. She would eventually escape and find refuge with the Raiders as many of the Raiders have done before.


...colleague (Mikah, Lycus Dion & Hans).

Harec tells her of his plans to send the humans back, she agrees...
Harec and the Raiders know that the Legacy is Shamash. There is no returning to Earth for anyone because there is no one left alive who understands how the Aleph engines work. Harec believed that when the Legacy activated it would teleport the humans back to Earth but it didn't. Thus, he cannot rouse anyone to action with such a plan.

Finally, Lycus didn't even know Harec existed until they met after Hanging By A Thread at which point I doubt Lycus would send correspondence to Aneska on the matter. It seems the only Hades people who knew about each other beforehand are Ayana, Lycus and Schneider because even Mikah refers to Lycus in her journal as though they barely knew each other. And Hans was a cook. I really doubt Aneska spent a lot of time befriending the scullery table.

Shamash and his army may or may not have knowledge of Aleph engines. I personally believe that they don't because they didn't bring a ship with them. The idea of leaving the Broken Planet was a taboo one in his time and ascending to the stars to spread their destructive ways was the absolute last thing a great majority of Locals wanted to happen.

Even now, in real life, we have a significant amount of people and organizations working on traversing the stars in a reasonable manner. They still can't quite get it right and that is without most of the population trying to actively get in their way.

I doubt knowledge of space-time bending spaceship engines was knowledge anyone could freely discuss. In fact, the existence of the Legacy shows that they thoroughly believed spaceships were not necessary and anyone who believed in Shamash would not worry themselves with such astronomical wonders. Since Shamash and his crew did know what the Legacy did they knew they would not need a ship of any sort to accomplish their task of aiding their descendants.

I do see the various Faction Specific Raiders getting enclaves of the factions to join them to fight Shammesh. I suspect that there still is a Legacy Cache somewhere on the planet. Totally possible the Ancient Locals made a "time-capsule" of sorts before going through the portal and for a security precaution they set the Protectors' Medallions as the keys, hence why Shammesh wanted to get Ana's from Harec. Part of the campaign will be to use the factions to buy time to find the cashe and to steal back the other 2 medallions.

That is very inspired.

It does seem strange that Shamash would continue to value the medallions if they had no more use. Though, given what he knows about the medallions he might just want to keep them close to hand. It is highly likely that, as the best strategist ever, he hid away large amounts of technology for use in his mission.

Really good concept and idea.

I believe that the humans and Present-Locals will have some sort of uneasy armistice. The humans basically lost everything important to them. This could lend credence to your theory of the Raiders, many of whom were high ranking members of their own faction, taking hold over the devastated human factions.
