Awakening – Prologue
The year was 2370 C.E. A great war was coming to an end, and with its twilight it brought the dawn of a new era. Since it had caused the war, religion in any form was declared a danger to all of mankind. Thus, it was outlawed, all writings were destroyed and lost forever. This was the fall of religion, the birth of a new era. All who remained agreed on starting anew from their new year One. This event has since then become known to the following generations of mankind as The Outlawing.
Some 700 years after the Outlawing, mankind flourished. Working together as one, the technological advancements growing beyond control. While some stayed on in this new era, others chose to travel and colonize other systems and planets. However, the ones that stayed advanced so far in technology that they thought that it would be within mankind’s power to create another moon. This to better control the climate for Earths overwhelming pollution due to the fallout. The attempt failed. Instead the Moon was destroyed in the process and plunged Earth into disarray for hundreds of years, the surface becoming a total wasteland.
Many went below the surface into the Earth and under the seas, creating civilization anew. Mastering the art of Genetic Engineering, they called themselves The Hybrid-born. Genetically tailored to be a society of nonviolent people almost void of emotion and with an incredible longevity. Whilst some flourished in this new society, some chose to travel and migrate to other planets as well as other solar systems.
However, some stayed on the surface as outcasts and called themselves The Free-born. The surface world was much different. It was a place of violence, emotion and passion. The Free-born had created their own society and cities on the surface. Some, being the most resistant to the fallouts’ toxins and pollution, continued their strides in the fields of Astrophysics and Space Travel; having little to no contact with the Hybrid-born. Once again, humanity was divided.
After centuries of isolation and separation, a discovery was made by the Hybrid-born deep within our planet. They found a barrier of amber-like energy like none other they had never seen. When they broke the barrier they awakened something, an entity, a life form that had laid dormant for eons. It would change the lives of every human being on Earth and bring our two cultures together once again. It would bring upon us an invader we never thought imaginable.
The Amenti where a race from far beyond our galaxy. They proclaimed that they had once been ‘’gods’’ among the humans; and had been worshiped by a long-lost people, the ancient Egyptians. Since Terra had shown signs of extreme resilience over the eons, they decided that she was ready for their true conquest. However, they found a weak civilization, not of nature, but of technology and faithlessness. In addition, she had now become a wasteland, and the moon they held so dear was shattered and broken. In their rage, the gods slew millions of us in the blink of an eye. They swore that all of ‘’humanity’’ would be enslaved for all eternity in an alternate universe they called Amenti. Yet, in their arrogance, these gods thought they could so easily enslave and control all they conquered, but they were wrong. Very wrong. The War between Man and God began, and rages on still to this day with no end in sight. We are leading our resistance, and now we are Escaping Amenti…
