O.W.N. meeting 01 *Hss.*
"Well, it looks like Thomas Hobbes and his childish delusions have finally been put down. Amasia and it's territories have finally come back under our control."
"We've lost the core planet in the process, however. But it is no matter. It has little resources on it of any value."
"There is the other issue, however "
"The item. We have as of yet only been able to track down one useable frame which had escaped from the living mass. It would be most detrimental to us for it to have been lost in the process of Amasia's collapse."
"Perhaps our efforts were not enough to preserve it?"
"There is no
Escape from Amasia 01 Adam was attempting to run (though in his injured state it was really more like a slow amble) back through the city, to the compound where he had been staying. All around him there was crazy amounts of looting and violence and various things of an even less savory nature. He had stuffed the card he had taken into the bottom of his boot, to take out later at a time when he would have more leniency to stop and read it. It would do no good to lose it by being robbed, and end up even more clueless about who was watching him.
Feeling that he would at least be less likely to be attacked if his path back remained on the more populated areas of the city, he ambled through the main streets, hoping he would be ignored, as long as he didn't look like he had anything valuable. He looked around him, to take in the different attitudes of the people who were taking in all that had happened. There were some
Thomas Hobbes Backstory Once, long ago in the forgotten annals of history or maybe it was only a few decades ago or from your perspective it hasn't actually happened yet Who knows; Am I on trial?! Anyway at sometime or other there was a wide-eyed idealist (Actually, no, he was pretty cynical even then.) and political activist named Thomas Hobbes. Born and raised in the Socio-capitalist collective of the O.W.N., from his youth, he had always been a productive and utilitarian member of society who went out of his way to help others, and had a strong dedication to bettering his overall surroundings and society.
So he dedicated himself to giving speeches, and petitions to reform in his country. For awhile he was able to do some small, rather insignificant good, though it took place through the inspiration his speeches inspired in individuals, rather than through actual governmental reform. But this was not good enough
octh: Last broadcast "Hello, this is Anton Drexler; speaking in stead of our president Thomas Hobbes, on the emergency broadcast system."
"This is not a test. I repeat, this is not a test."
"At 2200 hours today, we came under attack by the rebel forces, who worked under the orders of the O.W.N. First, our national power plants came under surprise attack. Since that time, they had been fully taken over by rebels, who have permanently terminated their functions. At the time this occurred, with our defenses lacking, they also began a full scale aerial assault, damaging much of the country's technological infrastructure. We have been informed that even though we have retaken the main facility, that all attempts to restore it's functions have been unsuccessful, as far too much of it, as well as the surrounding workings of the grid have been damaged in the attack."
Talk to Freud 02 A silent figure looked down upon Adam and Sophie battling against the two halves of Freud. It was filled with more than a little anger at once again seeing the face it hated so much, but which it knew it could not yet destroy.
Yet, at any rate. It's time would come, once it no longer had to be protected. It got ready, and prepared to go down to meet them.
"Aaaand. Un Deux...Trois!"
Adam and Sophie were hiding behind the large pillars of the hallway. Though they were bogged down, they had at least enough ammo and knives to ensure holding off Freud a little while. Unfortunately for them, the red aggressive one had been making it's way ever closer to them, under cover fire from the blue one. They hoped they would be able to hit it with a stray bullet before it blew apart all their hiding places with one
