(Prologue!) Avion: The Two Faced War
Around 2020 a scientist named Holl Scathe discovered a way to harness dark matter. In the early stages, dark matter could not be used for much at all, but in the year 2088, long after Holl’s death, an engineer named James Beaux invented a generator which harnessed the power of dark matter. At this time, four large companies invested in Beaux’s invention. Those companies were Beatris, Sark, Haile, and Dae’s. Uses for this dark matter generator are quickly developed and by 2110 and almost everything is powered by Dark Matter Generators (DMGs). James Beaux died of a heart attack at the age of 68 in 2115. By 2120, the four companies rapidly grew, seeing as all DMGs came from them. Everything from toothbrushes, to hover cars, to weapons of mass destruction, ran on DMGs.
Utilizing its amassed funds, Sark funded large colonies that search for land in the arctic. In 2130, they find a large bit of land which had been pushing up the ice surrounding the Arctic for approximately one-hundred-fifty years. The colonies cut through the ice and established towns and cities. At the same time, massive colonies established themselves in Antarctica, funded by Dae’s. Both new colonies adapted quickly to the conditions and rapidly grew to the point of establishing government as well as their own economies.
The colony in the Arctic called itself “Artica” and was led by a woman named Allison L. Soon after, the colony in Antarctica began to call itself “Tundra” and was led by Sean Oravaine. The two companies soon became the government for the colonies. For many years the two colonies kept to themselves and lived in peace with the rest of the world; trading, participating in the Olympics, immigration, etc. Suddenly, in 2193, Sark and Dae’s wished control of the world, so they threatened to stop supplying the world with their brands of DMG. In response to this threat, the United Nations enlisted the help of the other two massive companies; Beatris and Haile. Beatris was to take care of the Americas while Haile was to take care of the rest of the world.
Then in 2209, Russia seceded from Asia and Europe and joins Sark’s Artica; giving Haile less to protect, but more to worry about. Shortly after, Greenland also became apart of Sark in 2211. With the “negotiation” rejected, Sark and Dae’s developed large armies and attacked North America and Australia in 2212 respectively, beginning a war that will scar the earth forever. Sark and Dae’s also began to secretly develop two huge “Super Weapons”. Artica and Tundra’s armies are held at the Mexican and Chinese borders respectively.
In 2224 all of North and South America combined into one large Nation under one government. Soon, the Americas and Beatris fought off Artica back to the Canadian border by 2229. Realizing the efficiency of this tactic, Africa and Australia joined together. The remainder of Asia and Europe also joined together in 2234 and 37 respectively. As a safety precaution, Beatris sent a spy into Artica and Sark in 2228. Haile also sent a spy into Tundra and Dae’s in 2231. The battle raged on for another twenty-six years. Documents and blueprints are sent to Beatris and Haile via their spies. In 2241, both spying companies began building two “Super Weapons” based on the stolen designs.
During 2258, both Sark and Dae’s discovered the two company spies and executed them immediately.
Realizing what Beatris and Haile stole, Sark and Dae’s sent out their Super Weapons to the battlefield in 2262. Sark sent its “Mech” to Detroit, Michigan. Dae’s sent its “Mech” to Chinese Shanghai. These “Mechs” were large machines built to work like humans. They had arms, legs, a head, hands, fingers, and feet. They carried large weapons such as machineguns, shotguns, pistols, rockets, missiles, and more that were scaled up to fit the machine and made more accurate and more devastating. These machines were also run on DMGs. They were about twelve stories high and about a street block wide. Piloting these “Mechs” were select individuals with extraordinary reaction time, capacity, stress levels, and operation skills. These pilots were called “Knites”. The “Mech” sent to Detroit by Sark was called “Angel”. Angel completely annihilated the army stationed at Detroit. Within three days, the “Mech”, Angel, piloted by the Knite Fran ‘The Sword’ Tiamate, had decimated all of the Beatris/American army in Michigan. The “Mech” sent to destroy Chinese Shanghai was called “Shiva”. Shiva destroyed the Chinese/Haile army and within one week, one fourth of the forces stationed in China were also massacred. Shiva was piloted by a man named Bayne ‘Blue Blood’ Amstri’ice. These two battles were known as the Michigan Massacre and the Shanghai Slaughter.
In 2263 the United Nations had noticed no activity from the two “Mechs”. The following year, 2264, the two “Mechs” laid waste to more of the two defending armies. No “Mech” activity in 2265, but in 2266 Angel attacked Ohio and Shiva attacked Japan. Absolute destruction. By 2300 over half a billion soldiers had been killed and three-fifths of the world was under the control of Sark and Dae’s. In 2301 Beatris took control of the American government. How? They had built their own Mech, “Tribute”, and threatened the government. In 2303 Haile did the same to the African, Australian, European, and Asian government with the aide of their Mech, “Scathe”. Beatris called its new united colony “Tanica”. Haile called its new united colony “Aires”.
During 2310, Tribute, piloted by the Knite Tim “Bane” Schneider, and Scathe, piloted by the Knite Zane “The Forgotten” Whar, faced off against Angel, now piloted by Knite Huo “Halo” Jong, and Shiva, now piloted by Knite Joan “Armor” Johnson. During the fight the four DMG powered super weapons physically touched one another at the same time. The massive amount of dark matter, produced by the DMGs ran by the Mechs, had been continuously leaking out in a highly concentrated invisible shell around the Mechs. At the single point of contact, the dark matter became so dense that it literally collapsed in on itself and created a miniature, powerful, black hole. The black hole had a diameter of approximately thirty kilometers and expanded in a spherical shape from a single point. The four Super Weapons were devoured by the black hole as well as the surrounding area. All that was left, when the black hole ran out of energy, was recognized as the “Crater of Gods”.
For the next ninety years the four companies remained at a stalemate. In 2400 Sark elects a new CEO and President, Mayes Loureighn, a twenty-two year old man who has ideas of peace. He persuades Dae’s to withdraw from Aires and then withdraws Sark’s troops from Tanica. For the next thirty years, the world was at peace. A short period called “The Calm”. In 2430 a new landmass in the Pacific Ocean appears. The new landmass is approximately half the size of Australia. The four companies happen to land on the large island at the exact same time. Mayes L., now 52, is more determined to claim land for his company. He claims the new land for Sark. In this, the other companies claim the land for themselves as well; and so “The Calm” is broken.
Later in 2434, a Japanese man named Hughes Takanawa becomes CEO and President of Haile. In 2449, Cliff Redgar is elected CEO and President of Beatris, and becomes known as the most greedy and violent CEO and president in Beatris’s history. Finally, in 2468 a twenty year old woman named Mary Oravaine, an aggressive woman who is descended from the original leader of Tundra (Sean Oravaine), is elected as CEO and President of Dae’s and turns the government from a democracy to a Monarchy. Warfare on the island does not change until 2470 one year after Mary Oravaine is elected CEO and President of Dae’s. She sends Dae’s newly developed Mech to the island to keep a strong foot hold on the island. The Mech is called ‘Glacial’ and is piloted by Knite Roy “The Glacier” Amprage. Next came Sark’s ‘Frozen Wind’ who is piloted by Mayes Loureighn’s very own daughter, the Knite Karen “The Artic Wind” Loureighn. 2471 brought Beatris’s Mech, ‘Gigas’ piloted by Knite Emily ‘Dagger’ Jacque. And finally in 2472, Haile’s Mech ‘Scathe II’ piloted by the Knite, “Dawn” a female Knite whose name is not known. The four companies slowly moved towards the center searching every inch of the island for valuables and resources.
Secretly a colonel in the Sark military had been building up a resistance since she was fifteen years old. Her name was Asano Ishimura. With the search for riches on the companies’ minds, Ishimura transports half a million troops to the unnamed island. The small resistance called itself “Light”. Light was funded by the broken ex-governments all around the world. They set a perimeter in the center of the island in order to prevent the expansion of the companies. Light has one goal; to return the world to the way it used to be; run by the people, not giant companies for profit. The resistance’s presence is not known until 2478. Where the resistance is ambushed by Beatris’s Mech, Gigas. The fight rages for an hour before something ‘odd’ happens.
A forum post should be like a skirt. Long enough to cover the subject material, but short enough to keep things interesting
When someone hits rock bottom, they usually say "No where to go but up". Right? Wrong! If you hit rock bottom hard enough you'll fall right into the mantle. If you live through that you'll hit the inner mantle. And through that the outter core. And still after that the inner core, but what comes next? You come out the other side. Those who hit rock bottom and act like they had it hard are just oblivious to the trip past that little safety net.
