"Second Darkness" was a staged military exercise to assess the Clans readiness.
The new Dark Lord of the Sith called the Clans to the Antei system for a military exercise codenamed Operation: Second Darkness. Despite the Star Chamber's faith in the Shroud to protect them, the same could not be said for the Clans' own systems and the Dark Lord wanted to assess their readiness should they come under attack.
During the operation Aristan Dantes welcomed his Shadow Hand, Halcyon Rokir, into the Order of the Sith Lords.

Behind the Scenes
The "Second Darkness" was a Rite of Supremacy run by Grand Master Aristan Dantes to determine the might of the Six Clans, testing them in simulated warfare. The victor of the Rite would have the honor of leading the Brotherhood in a future conflict and gain the coveted title of First Clan. In addition to these, the winning Clan also was awarded the Rybanloth System that would remain hidden from the rest of the Brotherhood.
