The End of the War
- "Apocalypse World universe" - A text trailer for the TP
- "Apocalypse World Intro: To My Last Breath" - There are three legendary sets of nemeses in the Great Cybertronian War. Megatron and Optimus Prime. Elita One and Shockwave. And then there is the third war. The war for information, for tactical superiority. The war of Blaster and Soundwave. In the final days of Cybertron, Blaster learns of a most precious, most surprising fact. Something that may yet save the Cybertronian Race. And yet he is not alone in this information. And the two will butt heads for the final time. Soundwave vs Blaster - Their Last Encounter
There was a report across the planet, of a forge in Cybertron that had produced a new protoform.
That prize brought forth both Blaster and Soundwave from their secure locations. Eager to claim the protoform for their cause.
The two fought, a million years of frustration and loss upon them. Blaster savagely took Soundwave's arm off.
The two, guns drawn, and on their last legs, opened fire on each other one last time.
Leaving the Decepticon face down, his body cold...
Nov 18 - Apocalypse World
This is still a setting I love, and I wanted to get a message back up about it.
Apocalypse World is set at 'The End of the War'. The fighting has stopped, at least for the factions. Not that there ARE factions left really, for the Cybertronians have fought themselves to death. Cybertron's dead again, the race is bound to go extinct, and there's been no new Cybertronians produced in eons. Its the end of times. There are mechs who have changed their ways, and others that simply cannot bury the past. This is a time of strife, of emotion, and of last chances. The stories here are extremely personal, and wide ranging.
What is known about the world now is that the Junkions smashed a junkmoon onto the planet at some point. Nobody really knows why the Junkions have returned to their savage warband parties, Mad Maxing it up as they search the wastes for life and for energon. There's also a space station in orbit, the Kimia II, where Ratchet and a few others have chosen to hold up at, though it is currently unknown if they are trapped there, or capable to return to the ruined planet.
Optimus Prime has disappeared into the life of a hermit, as many others chose to do. Megatron survives, mad with intent that he alone is capable to fix the mistakes of the world, that he can correct his failures, the Slagmaker still has a notable command of troops, at least thirty, though he has not been seen in quite some time.
The war ended in an event referred to as 'the last skirmish'. Both sides, exhausted both physically and mentally, fought for useless ground, and then all seemed to freeze. Nobody knew who was the first one to throw down his weapon and his brand, but one Cybertronian did. ((If you like, it can be you.)) Others followed, and followed quickly. Just like that, the war was over. There was nobody willing to fight, and nobody left to fight...and nothing to gain.
Into this bleak end of life, a message was sent out, an automated report that a new protoform was needing completion at a production factory. The first protoform produced in six eons. As part of a new production chain, this protoform possesses a digital code that could be spliced and dissected to create new Cybertronians. New life! At the expense of her own body, of course. When last we left these poor souls, it was surprising that of all people, it was Dreadwind who befriended the protoform. With the grievously wounded Elita One, the two seek to hide this young child from the reavers and myrmidoms that would bound to take advantage of the situation, killing her for a chance at rebirth.
Next time we RP, the protectors of the child will seek to retrieve Energon for a long trip, something the protoform desperately needs, but to do that, they must confront the Junkion Reavers that hold the last bit of production.
Her name is Tomorrow.
May 15 - Recap:Her Name Is Tomorrow
Elita One and Dreadwind made their way through the desert, E1 urged Dreadwind on to go steal an energon generator from the Junkion Ravagers. She noted that Dreadwind would have help. A datalion attacked out of the rust sand, when a large robotic canine and a hunter appeared and slew the creature. This was revealed to be the forgemate of Elita One and Optimus Prime, Stormfront, with Tracker. Stormfront harvested some energon from the creature, as Elita One wandered into the desert, walking straight towards a shut down Jetfire, who was revived with some of the elixir. Unfortunately, the Junk Raiders caught wind of the tussle, and moved to ambush Team Tomorrow. Stormfront bartered with Benjer, who detested any Earth references, and the situation just about came to blows, with Elita One threatening to 'burn bright' if she must. But the blows never came to pass, as the Junkion Sand Crawler started to report damage from ballistic attack. Giant plates of scrap were blown off of it, and explosions started to damage the main structure, as the two sides investigated. And there, standing on the ridge were a group of tank cons, and with them...Megatron.
Team Tomorrow must recover the energon generator AND avoid letting Tomorrow fall into the Slagmaker's hands, AND deal with the Junkion Raiders
