Rise of the Fallen [ Modern Sci-fi] ] - [ Militia ] - [ Supernatural ] - [ Action ] Before the Fall Once upon a time, the United States of America was known as the "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave". It was that way for over two centuries. Life at times was hard and the government wasn't always the best, but things were alright. But then the Fall came. At first it was just a revolution, people wanting to overthrow the government and bring peace to the poverty stricken country they were living in. But then it got out of hand... Very, very quickly. The rebellious group who went by the name of the Knights of Valor was small, but strong. Many veterans and such gained means of weapons and took things into their own hands. Before long, years of civil war were raging all across the land, making it a terror filled place. The home of the free was no more. Finally, after ten long years of battling and blood shed the "war" had ended, with the Knights, now going by the Surge, at the top of the new government. Now, finally, things could be peaceful; people would be equal. If only that was true. After the Fall Fifty years have passed since then and things have only continued to get worse for the people of Dominion. After the government had fallen, the country became pure communism, being completely about "being equal". Technology increased, but what with a crumbled government, money was scarce. People become something similar to livestock, mutations were created, and things were closely watched by the new soldiers - the Knights of Valor. Life had become simple: you followed the rules and you didn't get hurt. Those who disobeyed the rules or tried to do something to get ahead of everyone else was punished, by death. There was no room for intolerance, no room for a rebellion. The Surge did not want to be what the government of America had become and were strict with their ruling. This caused many people to become miserable, and since everyone was treated "equal", it also made their lives worse than before. However, a small group had emerged, willing to go against the Surge and even risk their lives for something known as true freedom. At first the group was made of a few people who had ran away from the lifestyle the Surge and Knights kept in check. Knowing that if caught they faced death or at best, torture and experimentation, the group kept under the radar running and taking shelter wherever they could, knowing that they were being hunted. Eventually, they gained more followers, and then a leader. Soon, they became known as the Fallen. The Fallen began to rise in numbers, collecting those who wanted out, humans and animal-morphs alike. Soon, they became a real threat to the Surge, who saw them as just a rebellious group trying to overthrow the government. However the Fallen had no such idea in mind. However, now, their plans have changed, and maybe for the better.
