Plot (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Plot (open) Plot (close) Humans fear for a good reason that machines take control someday. They are stronger, have a lot more stamina, and are more durable than humans. The only thing that stops them from going against humanity are the Three Laws of Robotics. In case you don't know them (Move your mouse to reveal the content) In case you don't know them (open) In case you don't know them (close) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. But what if one scientists disables these rules, even if not planning to do so? Dr.Light, a genius Scientist, created a Robot to think independently. He had a single simple mission: Protect the world. He was given a free will that would allow him to make it's own decisions. Little did he know that this was a huge mistake. The Robot decided that Humans were nothing but Parasites for the planet and that they also took the recourses he would need. In his eyes it would be only a matter of time until Humans would kill each other completely by using their Nuclear weaponry, which would further damage the world. The Robot betrayed the Humans and vanished from sight for a couple of Years. When he came back, he was not alone. He build other Robots with the same A.I. he was using. While each had another personality, they all had the same goal. Eliminate Mankind. Dr. Light was one of the first to die since he knew too much about how they were build. He knew their weakspots, and because of that his fate was sealed when they came for him in the middle of the night. With him gone, the Robots now known as Mavericks, began to destroy many towns and kill many innocent people. Of course they had losses on their sides as well, but unlike humans they could rebuild themselves, so each loss was only temporarily. And the Nuclear weapons that seemed to be the easiest way to get rid of them were of no use. All forms of data transmissions were hacked by them, making it impossible to surprise attack them. With all of these advantages, it seems like there is no way to win. In a last hope of defeating them and restoring peace, another Scientist who was known by the name Ciel, developed the Biometals, which were followed by the R.O.C.K On system. With these two inventions, some humans gained the power to strike back. It depends on them now if they succeed or fail. The "Maverick event", now lies 50 years in the past, and the threat they are still exists. The Scientist Ciel, is gone without a trace, assumed to be dead as well, and the inventions she made, the Biometals, are lost without a trace and forgotten by the time. This are not the best times in history, but thanks to the military, the Mavericks are held at bay so that the Humans and Reploids can live in peace. Not many towns exist at this time, and most people are forced to live inside one of the 7 great capitals of the new world. It is allowed to go out, but the possibility of meeting a maverick is too high, so most prefer to stay inside the protective barriers of their Capitals. Metropolis, the world capital city, well known for its technological progress and almost Utopian atmosphere. The people that lived here tend to take the path of Engineering and Programming, which allows Metropolis to use a great recourse of knowledge. Of course there were some shadows here and there, but it never got out of hand. Metropolis is split in different areas. The Business District, is where all of the shops were located. No matter if small or big, useful or junk, shiny or blunt. Everything could be sold here. Those who did not have an own shop could simply go to the auction house and try to sell their possessions there. The Research District, is where most laboratories and Schools were. Some private schools and laboratories were in different areas, but the ones in these areas were funded by the City, instead of private people. The difference were the permissions for experiments, and the available equipment. The Slum District, was located at the edge of town. It was not the most beautiful place to see, but it was always great to see what the people made of the junk they found. Most junk inventions worked just as good as Inventions made of new metal. What others couldn't sell or didn't need anymore, was send straight to the Slum's Scrapyard. There were various other Districts, like the Arts, Training, and Military district, but these counted as the lesser visited ones and were smaller in size compared to the main 3, but the people were satisfied with what they had and lived their life the way they wanted to.
