A key, that could grant eternal happiness to everyone. He made it sound so magnificent. Like all the problems of the world would simply fade, showing them some utopia they had been hidden from. Jacob Hueve Jotin had been a motivational speaker. He had a persuasive nature about him, people seemed to believe anything he said. It wasn’t long until he stopped doing schools and was upgraded to his own convention center. People flocked to his ideals. He had something of an army. But as he moved up, something happened, perhaps he hit the roof of his capability of accepting fame and accolades. But Jacob snapped, no one heard from him for a week, when police finally went into his house they found him in a cold sweat, mumbling something they couldn’t comprehend. No one was able to snap him out of his babbling or focus his distant eyes. So eventually, with no other ideas Jacob was sent to a ward for mental care. To be locked away until he could recover. Years passed, and he showed no signs of recovery, but on the fifth year, he escaped. To this day no one knows how. But news the world over reported of his departure from the asylum. “He is coming back.” All the reports started as such, but their guess to why differed “Bent on reaching his dream.” some would proclaim. But others, sensed something more sinister. “For revenge, against those who locked him away.” For one day he was as popular as he ever was. But then silence, for thirty seven years he stayed hidden.Jacob had been gone for so long, most people thought he was dead, that was until he appeared on stage, in the middle of a live broadcast, and he gave that speech. That damned speech. He spoke about how the government oppressed their people, that they held the true tangible key to happiness, and all that they would need to do is one, simple, rebellion. His voice went on, the speech continued, and it wasn’t long until a few million turned. At the end of his speech he punctuated it with a date, the day the white house would fall. Over the days, people rallied together. Saying they were preparing for a march. But the government knew better, they fortified themselves. It all ended in vain however because on that proclaimed date, the streets became awash with blood. Both sides letting guns blaze in the middle of the streets, people crying in agony and others hiding behind children as human shields. Truly it was a twisted time. Just to end it all, codes were given and a warhead was launched. The blast took them all, one million twisted and desperate lives turned to ash in an instant.But Jacob could turn anything into momentum in his campaign. This was no exception. "Look, Americans are so unstable they nuked their own president just to stop a riot! They not only killed their own men but civilians and those who weren't even in the peaceful parade that the soldiers decided was an attack! Someone should do something to stabilize them! They claim to be fighting for peace and yet they only cause war. Stand in arms and defend yourself against a nuclear war!" People bought into it, other countries including some of the USA's closest allies turned against them and started an all out war.In the end Jacob got his 'key to happiness' and managed to break into area 61 where he unlocked a door that would change the fate of the world forever.He had found his solution to the problems that plagued humanity. Behind that door was a beast from another plane. It ripped and tore Jacob limb from limb, flinging pieces of him everywhere. The very thing he thought would save humanity ended up being its worst nightmare. The wars ended, the beast killed almost everyone. Any one that had thought this key was going to solve their problems... really it did... permanently. No life means no problems.The few survivors were now in a twisted game of cat and mouse. Against all odds a Commander and Lieutenant hoped to change the tides of what was now considered fate. They were going to take down that very beast that hunted them and everything that went with it, starting with the smaller creatures whom littered the earth like humans once had. Nothing was going to stop them, not now.I'm Commander, or at least that's my rank. I'm the commander of a small group of survivors. We plan on taking down this beast and all the creatures that came with it. Right now we are located in our 'HQ' an old bomb bunker that has everything we need to survive. Running water from a well that is thousands of feet underground (most upper water sources are poisoned), canned food (mainly beans), a small solar plant that we hooked up to the base (not sure how long that will give us power), and of course weapons, lots and lots of weapons. The only thing we are currently lacking however, is man power.
