Welcome back everyone! I want to apologize how late this is in getting posted, we all know how finals and holidays can be.
Glad to see all the art going into the folder, because of the amount of participation that the group has shown we can justify continuing on with the plot. Lets keep it up so we can keep going!
Also, we've decided to make a tiny adjustment to how submissions work. A lot of people have expressed that they would like to still complete the first section of the plot but may not make it on time. So as of now, you can still submit your Plot 1 part
, but you cannot jump into Plot 2 until that is finished! They must be completed in order. Part 2- The Awakening
Weeks of conflict with between the Graveyard Machine and the Aspik Guard have left major parts of the city in ruins. Entire housing complexes leveled to the ground, stores and companies reduced to rubble, and entire streets destroyed beyond use. The guard, ever proud, insist they have the situation under control, but the residents of the city are bitter and unsatisfied. If the guard cannot defend it's citizens, then why even trust them? Mercenaries and vigilantes band together to ward off the armies of the Graveyard Machine, some for free and others for a price. With the conflict rising to a critical point, the guard finally realizes that they have to enlist more help.
The Graveyard Machine, knowing that they are on the path to victory, want's to ensure that nothing stands in it's way. It too is enlisting help, promising the blessing of the forest god in exchange for aid in battle. While the use of advanced technology is not allowed among their tanks, those with magical abilities will be given trinkets that enhance their spells.
The time as come to pick sides. Will you aid the residents of Aspik preserve the grand city that they call home, or will you side with Graveyard Machine and restore the natural balance of the forest and it's magic?What's happening?
The forest god is angry and has decided to wage war upon technology--or at least those who seem to think it superior to magic. The Graveyard Machine's first attack was eventually able to be beaten back to the city walls with moderate casualties, but by the day, the army grows. Aspik never counted on the vast junkyards that decorate the city's outskirts to ever be used against it. The Graveyard Machine is filled with rage and cannot currently be reasoned with. So far this has been the first and only time Aspik's walls have been breached.
Residents of Aspik have taken up sides, those who side with the Graveyard Machine and those who choose to stand against it. Both sides are doing everything they can to bring people to their cause. Not only has this become a physical battle, but a political one as well. [!]
