The setting: The year is 3274 and planet Earth is filled with humans and anthros alike. The planet has gone through an electronical apocalypse. After a meteor the size of a foot ball field impacted in North Dakota and set off a powerful magnetic pulse, electronics went hay-wire. Even the simplest of electronics literally grew minds of their own. Watches launched their hands out and stuck into people, empty cars rammed into pedestrians and cars that had people in them. The already intelligent military super computers launched nukes on their own accord. The human race was forced to move under ground. After many years, the humans developed a steam punk way of life. Vehicles, both military and civilian ran on steam. Robotic suits capable of stopping a charging dump truck were developed, and after 36 years of exile, they went back to the surface, ready to take back what was theirs and to learn about the world that the machines have created. The machines have no defined leader, but do attack in groups on some occasions. If near a larger, seemingly more intelligent machine, they will star a process of "machine see, machine do." It is unclear as to how the electronics know where things are.
You will be playing as a soldier in the war, whether it is a sniper, steam suit (basically a giant robot suit powered by steam) wearer, steam tank driver or just a plain old soldier it doesn’t matter. I will be the acting as the leader of the Organic Locatio (Organic Entente in English), or the OL for short, as well as my own character. You will be starting at Fort Homeland, the first fort between the over and under worlds.
The story will be played out on a chapter/mission styled basis. If you miss 1-2 missions/chapters, you will be warned. If you miss a third, you will be booted (depending on how long the chapters/missions are.)

Could you shoot me a reservation?
December 17th, 2011 6:45 PM
Sure thing. Reservations last 24 hours
December 17th, 2011 8:39 PM
Actually cancel my reservation, I'm just not in the SU writing mood right now and I've been trying to get an idea down for the past two hours and it's just not coming to me. I probably won't have any time tomorrow to write either, but if I do have an idea later then I'll be sure to get it down.
December 17th, 2011 8:45 PM
Awwww. You have until noon tomorrow (my time) before the reservation is done. I'll just keep it like that until then.
