It's finally happened. The existence of life beyond this world has been confirmed.
Good god, it's been confirmed...
On August 17th, 2021, countless cities and military bases across the globe ceased to exist. The first thought was that nuclear war had finally broken out, but then... The first broadcast blared out of every speaker that could recieve it.
"I am Commander Neran, military leader of the Expeditionary Force sent out from the homeworld of the Evarran Empire. We have rained down kinetic energy strikes on every last military stronghold you have on your planet. You have no chance of survival should you resist us. Submit to neural reconditioning or be annihilated."
And just like that, the world was forever changed.
Several ground bases have been set up by the Evarran forces, at least ten per continent. They have begun collecting specimens for various uses, includeing testing of biological neuroweapons, and their neural reconditioning.
Naturally, the Earth's native population is fighting back against this threat. There are many who have bunkered down with weapons and are defending their land. Fortunately, the aliens' infantry armor and vehicles are not capable of standing up to heavy fire, and the armor is easily pierced by even weak handguns at fairly long ranges. Unfortunately, their deadly weapons make up for their woefully lacking defense.
It is a hard fought battle, but it seems as though the Earth is losing. Slowly but surely, the Evarrans are destroying every pocket of resistance. Until...
"Sir, we have a problem."
"Commander, we've lost contact with Post Seven."
"... We what?"
"We've lost contact. And there's more..."
"We sent down a small team to investigate... They just returned."
"Well? Was it a tech malfunction?"
"No, sir... The personnel had all been killed. Although that is a light term for what was done to them..."
"What do you mean?"
"No alarms were tripped, but... All of the captives have escaped. And the personnel... They were torn to shreds. It looks like a wild animal. We've never seen anything like it..."
"... Senior officers meeting. NOW."
"It is time to come out of the shadows... This threat to our world is too much. We must reveal ourselves. We must fight. It is time to show these intruders why the humans fear the night..."
