It is the year 2196.  Close your ears and shut out the screams of the dying.  Humanity is a suffering, wounded beast, desperate for hope in a world of doom.  Cyberspace has fallen, switched off-line in an instant by a nameless entity, taking both its angels and demons with it.  Millions are dead, millions more are in pain, cut off from their only refuge, shocked into a reality which threatens to overwhelm them.  Legions of cyberspace predators now roam the real world, searching out new prey, seeking new food for their ravenous hunger.  Truth is a swear word.  Purity is a virtual myth.  Honor is only a memory.  Evil forces of incalculable power are gathering, plotting out the end of good, careless of the innocents that suffer in the destructive wake of their maneuverings.  Only a select few warriors are even willing to combat the black cloud looming over the future.  And even they are beginning to falter.

The future is here.  Be afraid.
