IN THE VERY DISTANT FUTURE, A FIERCE WAR IS BEING FOUGHT BETWEEN TWO SUPER-CITY-STATES, ENSARIAN AND IMGRADON, ON THE PLANET ZEGANDARIA OVER THE RESOURCES ZEGANDARIAN KEVLARITE AND INTERON FUEL. THE TWO CAMPS BEGIN THE CLASH LIGHTLY AS A JOKE WITH GOOD INTENTIONS MUCH LIKE CHILDREN, BUT FROM A MINOR DISPUTE AND LOCAL CONFLICT, IT QUICKLY GROWS AND SPREADS TO THE ENTIRE PLANET, AND LATER EVEN REACHES UNIVERSAL PROPORTIONS. MANY OTHER DISTANT PLANETS SUCH AS SEBUR NAG AND OSONIA ARE ALSO INVOLVED. GRADUALLY, ALL THE RACIAL, MORAL AND RELIGIOUS FAULTS IN THE VIEWS OF THE INHABITANTS OF THE PLANET BECOME APPARENT, WHO FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON CANNOT COEXIST. TWO BRAVE TEAMS OF ADVENTURERS RACE AGAINST TIME IN THEIR ATTEMPT TO STOP OR AT LEAST REDUCE THE HOSTILITIES AND THE NEVER-ENDING FIRE OF HATRED TO BE EXTINGUISHED.
ALL TOO SOON IT BECOMES CLEAR THAT THE FURTHER HUMANITY'S TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES HAVE GONE, THE FURTHER BEHIND CONCEPTS LIKE FRIENDSHIP AND LOVE HAVE BEEN LEFT. EVEN NEWBORNS ARE IMPLANTED WITH MEMORIES SELECTIVELY, ACCORDING TO WHAT THEIR PARENTS WANT THEM TO BE.
BUT SOMEWHERE DEEP IN THE BOWELS OF THE PLANET LURKS A THIRD PLAYER. HE SEEMS ALMOST INVISIBLE, BUT HE LARGELY DETERMINES THE END AND THE DENOUEMENT OF THE WHOLE ARMAGEDDON. LITTLE PRINCESS MIERU IS ALSO THE MAIN VILLAIN'S DOOM.
THERE'S NO TIME TO WASTE, AND EVERY FEELING IS ALL TOO FLEETING - MOSTLY UNTIL SOME RANDOM PLASMA BLAST BLOWS YOUR SKULL OFF. AND DANGER LURKS AROUND EVERY CORNER.
MARK, SASSIA, FATHER, RAT, GRANDPA JACK, SAM WALLACE, RUSSELL, DURNYAM, MIERU, ENNIO HAMMER, SERGEANT ZORIN, RODRIGO, DUOLORS, BECKY, MEIOR, HILDA, KENJI, NEOLA, KIER ZOH AND OTHERS REPRESENT THE VARIOUS CHARACTERS AND PERSPECTIVES ON THE WHOLE CHANGED REALITY. NONE OF THEM ARE WHOLLY GOOD OR BAD, AND SOMETIMES THEY GET TO MAKE SOME PRETTY WEIRD DECISIONS.
AND, OF COURSE, THERE'S THE REDEMPTION MOMENT AT THE END. THE DIRTY SECRETS OF LABOR COLONY 206 AND THE EVIL DICTATOR ACUSTRO, WHO HAS IMPRISONED THE GREATEST SCIENTIFIC LUMINARIES ON THE PLANET, BECOME THE BASIS FOR A NEW BEGINNING. BECAUSE MAYBE EVERYONE'S BEEN A LITTLE GUILTY OF EVERYTHING THAT'S BEEN GOING ON.
AND THE ENDING IS SLIGHTLY UNEXPECTED. ONLY THE MOST MORAL SURVIVE, AND THOSE WHO HAVE FOLLOWED THEIR DESTINED PATH ALL ALONG. AND THE CULPRITS ARE PUNISHED! AND YET SOME OF THEM MAY BE FORGIVEN! AFTER THE FACT!
