Mortal Engines

Mortal Engines

0 INK

In a world ravaged by war and nuclear weaponry of the past, cities have only one choose to make: eat or be eaten. They can move and fight to survive by devouring the other whole! But some ‘static cities’ still remain – and war is on their minds…

Introduction

The Traction Cities…
The Mortal Engines takes place in the future, after the world has been ravaged by the nuclear warfare of the Sixty Minute War thousands of years ago and natural disasters and pollution rule the Earth; cities can no longer stay static in order to survive, meaning that they have become Tractionist – they have wheels and move along the ground like animals. Every day they hunt for their prey, which so happens to be other cities! These Traction Cities have the ability to swallow one another whole, using the resources among the eaten city to fuel their own survival; this is called Municipal Darwinism. Now, the cities and suburbs lurk across the newly formed world of the Great Hunting Ground, hungry for each other…

The Anti-Tractionists...
Not everybody agrees with this new method of life and as a result the majority of Asia has turned to the Anti-Traction League – and their more violent sister the Green Storm – both of which wage war on the cities, building their own static homes in the hope that they will not be devoured. They have started to use Old Technology to resurrect soldiers into android-like beings called Stalkers, who are lethally trained to kill you in the first second…

The Past Remains...
Old Tech weaponry still lingers on the Earth, nuclear forces and satellites roaming the Earth’s atmosphere, waiting to be awakened. Such a device has great value but comes at a price…

Whose side do you take? Are you Tractionist, Anti-Tractionist or one of the many airship pilots soaring through the skies? Are you a heartless Stalker, a bald-headed Engineer, an intelligent historian or just another face in the game that is the Mortal Engines…?
