In the shared universe of ''Starbound'' and ''Wargroove'', interstellar travel is made possible thanks to a mysterious substance known as erchius, mined at great risk from moons throughout the galaxy. However, erchius spawns malevolent supernatural phenomena when present in vast quantities, and is heavily implied to originate from the Ruin -- an EldritchAbomination that seeks to destroy all life in the cosmos. Requiem noticeably shares the [[PurpleIsPowerful luminescent purple coloration]] of erchius, and like the Ruin is [[OmnicidalManiac singlemindedly omnicidal]]. Its possible that the weapon was crafted using erchius that fell from space in a meteor, perhaps from the ''Wargroove'' world's own moon.

It would explain why there are Late Medieval/Early Renaissance humans on a planet somewhere with no concept of space travel, as well as the appearance of magic. Contributing to this theory is the fact that there are structures in ''Starbound'' in which a board game featuring a castle can be found on a table, along with the faction banners from ''Wargroove''. The RPG part is implied by a specific character from ''Starbound'', that is, Nuru, showing up. Further, there are various maps in the campaign editor, perhaps other module-books for the game, in-universe.

[[WMG: The Kingdom of Cacophony was TheEmpire.]]
The Great Dissonance was a cataclysmic war that eradicated two ancient nations 4000 years before the beginning of ''Wargroove's'' story... but since the age is ShroudedInMyth, we learn nearly nothing about the participants, why the war between them started, or who the aggressor was. However, there are some implications. In a codex entry unlocked near the end of the game, we learn about "cacophonic magic", the wizardry practiced by the Kingdom of Cacophony. Very little is known about it, [[BlackMagic except that its very powerful and has a habit of corrupting its users]]. Furthermore, only two examples of cacophonic magic are encountered in the story; both of which are sapient [[ArtifactOfDoom Artifacts Of Doom]] that tempt their wielders and lead them down the path of becoming despotic conquerors. Given this, its entirely possible that Cacophony was actually a villainous empire, and that the creation of Requiem was their last-ditch effort to crush Silmor once and for all, only to be all but wiped out themselves when they realized [[EvilIsNotAToy they couldn't control it]].
* Likely jossed. The codex entry "Requiem and the Great Dissonance" (unlocked by defeating the TrueFinalBoss) ultimately portrays the conflict as being more [[GreyAndGreyMorality morally grey]] than nefarious - While the specifics of the war still aren't given, Cacophony's decision to create Requiem is framed as an exhausted nation trying to force a ceasefire [[MutuallyAssuredDestruction via a superweapon that could destroy both sides]], only to drastically underestimate what their new weapon was capable of. After Requiem's rampage, mages from both Silmor and [[TheAtoner Cacophony]] banded together to construct its prison and install Princess Elodie, their leader, as its guardian.
