This forum needs more AARs. That other forum has lots, but most of them are about dating. Nothing wrong with dating AARs, I suppose, but after the first dozen…
Anyway - onward!
[CENTER]One Nation Under Pods: An Armageddon Empires AAR
We are the Xenopods.
We came to earth to serve man.
On a platter.
From the official history of Armageddon Empires:
In the year 2025 human civilization makes first contact with not one but two alien civilizations. The Machine Empire and the Xenopods have been enemies locked in a death struggle for over 10,000 years. As the battle for control of the solar system and the earth rages with unimaginable fury, neither group pays the insignificant natives of the planet much attention. Within a month of first contact, 99% of the human race is exterminated by thermonuclear fire, kinetic weapons strikes, genetically engineered plague and starvation.
The survivors scurry like cockroaches to stay out of the aliens’ way. A little over 20 years later the fighting stops as suddenly as it started. A shift in the tide of battle moves the front to other star systems and all that remains on the devastated planet are scattered groups of human survivors and the abandoned remnants of the aliens’ fighting forces.
Before the battle for earth had even been decided, Xenopod forces had begun rounding up humans into camps. At first it was only rumor, but soon the horrible truth was discovered. Humans were being used as both hosts and food for the birthing of Xenopod life forms. Tales of horrible genetic experiments circulated as well.
After the alien exodus of 2045, isolated groups of Machine and Xenopod forces continued to battle for survival against each other. The earth fell into a period of warring states that lasted for 300 years and continues to the present day.
By the Year 2357 the remnants of the Xenopod forces on Earth has successfully exterminated the remaining units of the Machine Empire. Xenopod intelligence forces had determined that all that remained for domination of the planet was to exterminate the remaining pockets of humanity – both the Empire of Man and the Free Mutants – in what, centuries earlier, was known as the Mojave Desert.
What follows is an account of the Xenopads’ noble attempt to exterminate, once and for all, the last vestiges of humanity.
