Hey, it's up! Yay! ^_^ Okies, hello people, I'm sure you may be scratching your heads at what this is all about, but rest assured, answers are coming. Okay, first a brief history, so you all know generally what's going on. Then we can get more specific about what it all means. ^_^ The place is Earth. The time, the future. 2475 to be more specific. But the story begins even before then. 100 years before then, to be precise. 2375, and Earth's scientists have made amazing advances. Clean, renewable energy is no longer a thing of the past. Metals have gotten stronger, and computers better. It was also around this time that scientists had almost proved the existence of other dimensions. They had pinpointed what they believed was another world, and were about to open a door between this dimension and the other. However, this was the first mistake. After opening a doorway successfully, the scientists discovered a world already inhabited by a race of vicious, malformed humanoids, almost demonic in their creation. It was this reason that led us to name their varied race the first true Demons. And they weren't friendly. Quickly spilling out into our world, they tried to claim it as their own, resulting in small skirmishes at first. But as the demons got bolder, and more determined, it quickly escalated into a full scale war. Lasting many years, the war was brutal, and the vast majority of cities all over the world were destroyed, as well as the Earth itself being scarred and desolated. The demons were not as advanced as the humans, but they had an advantage, in their ability to proficiently use magic. Many years into the war however, the accident occurred which sealed the fate of humanity, and indeed the whole planet. Early on in the war, the humans had begun using machines to help fight the demons and destroy them. But soon, it got out of hand, and after developing the A.I. too far, the machines turned against the very humans that created them. But they also continued fighting the demons. And thus, the war continued, three different sides fighting for control of what was left of the planet. But suddenly, 43 years ago, it all stopped. The remaining humans have retreated to a large city known as Home, where they live protected inside their shield. The machines retreated to their own territory, where they have set up factories for many different things, including growing the numbers of their own race. And meanwhile, the demons have spread themselves all over the world, living in destroyed cities, mountains... wherever they can find a suitable shelter. And that's Earth as it is now.
