I had an idea about a world were after world war 3, in which the United States and Russia had united to conquer the world failed, the world beat them back to their own home territories, but instead of admit defeat they nuked their own country's soil to prevent the invasion of their own turf, after the war ended the world gave the countries their own name "the Winter Empire" 15 years later they have not been heard from since, and the world has basically forgot them. but now 15 years later the world is enjoying a long reign of world peace, the war and its effects long forgotten expect to those who fought it and the history textbooks in school. No one thinks they could have rebuilt because their nuke attack left their country's barren winter wastelands that seemed to be all but dead. The only well known thing from the war that was left over was a single phrase uttered by the military leader of the united forces of America and Russia. He said these few words just before he was shot to death in his command bunker by the allied forces fighting the ruminants of his armys. These words became ingrained into the soul of every soldier who fought in that terrible war. "Revenge is like a ghost...It takes over every man it touches...Its thirst cannot be quenched...Until the last man standing has fallen...The world's men of action...will look in wonder...how it came to this...you may be able to destroy me...but the beast will eventually come for you...Perhaps you cannot yet hear it... because the soil is not your own. But you will... you will."
after saying these words, he was shot 57 times by the angered soldiers, soon after, the war ended, and the world forgot.
the idea is was inspired by this vidAce Combat 5 - Cutscene 01
