It was the Golden Age of technology for man. The Earth had become a plaything with incredible technologies that bordered on magic. Then the nations got greedy. Human modification and amplification were designed side by side with robotic technology. First came the skirmishes, then the wars and finally nuclear holocaust.
Records are fuzzy here and all that is known is the nukes caused the Rifts to open. Magic energies flooded the world and opened portals allowing monsters, demons, and aliens to invade Earth, making it a living hell for those still alive.
It is now 102 P.A. The Coalition of Man has gotten a strong-hold in the old Mid-west. Opportunities are rife for mercenaries. Do you have the courage, the honor, or the greed to answer the call?
