Part 1 - The End of the World
Before posting, please post here
Purity and Godliness. These were the two virtues to which man is to operate upon. For those who stray from the path there lies nothing but their swift and brutal execution. These were not just enforced by The Order, but by something else... Something greater and closer to God....
But the World is afoul now. The human governments are nothing more but puppets to the monsters which lie in the shadows. Mages are who truly control the power... Tipping and creating governments like toys in order to suit their needs. Not only that, their powers are a sin against God. Magic is the realm of God and God alone. For those who enter, they are desecrating the Divine with their unholy footsteps. But with the world under thumb of Magic Users, there lies no hope for Humanity. Forever more shall they lead sinful lives, never knowing the degree of their sin. Even the Order, who acts in God's name, has turned away from the correct path by using the Devil's arts instead of their inner holiness. They are nothing better now than a bunch of zealots who act on the church's accords, not the Divine's...
As the World prepared to start a new day, seven "Seals" were seen all over the world....
The First Seal was over the USA, specifically over the city of Las Vegas.
The Second Seal was in Europe, hovering over Berlin
The Third Seal was seen over Beijing China
The Fourth Seal was seen over Sydney Australia
The Fifth was seen over Congo
The Sixth Seal was seen over Rio de Janeiro in South America
The Seventh Seal was seen over Antarctica, right over the middle of the thundra...
These seals looked like giant blue lines over the sky.. and they radiated just like a rupture. But instead of chaotic energy, the pure, refined energy that a mage channels emitted from the Seals, as they opened. What came forth from the seals were giant, huge ass ships. They completely overshadowed the city they were enter. They were white, and looked like a huge floating castle of some sort. From what appeared, they looked to be at least the size of New York City, if not more.
"HUMANS!" A Voice rang, it's voice powerful and commanding. "We have seen your sinful ways. You have all turned from the way of God, living in sin and away from His eternal perfection. We tried to turn you to the correct path, but all of this was in naught. So for centuries, we have debated what to do. The only obvious thing left to do is to Wipe your Pathetic and Sinful life..... And wash this world clean!"
With that, the Citadels dispensed what seemed to be Millions of aircrafts into the sky. They were all white, and had a very metallic and futuristic feel to them. Death rained from above, as cities were crushed and humans killed in the destruction. The citadels fired white laser beams upon the cities, killing thousands as the smaller aircraft began to continue with the destruction. Human government, in the first hour after the initial, unwarned attack, launched human military against this menace. However, they were all destroyed within enter the first hour of battle, in the air at least. Soon enough, the ships began landing, as what seemed to be even more millions of soldiers, all wearing futuristic or anachronistic armor, stepped off the ships and began to enter ground combat. This army was well trained in the power of magic, and easily wiped the pitiful human defenses.... All seemed lost to the humans, and only in seven hours....
But in this moment of darkness, the Arcane Treaty Organization and it's allies stepped to the battle...
To Asia rose the Monastery, pledging to fight the predations of these invaders...
To North America D-13 rose, sending it's highly trained army into the fray.
South America's defense was in the domain of Eternity, who had a huge stake in the magical power within the continent.
Europe's defense fell upon the Rosicrucian Alliance, with innumerable spirit allies fighting besides them in battle
Australia was alone... but the Arcane Academy was able to convince the Order to protect the isle, and strike a truce for now.
And to Antarctica, the Academy was charged to defend it...
"EVERYONE!" Byron yelled, standing among the frozen fields of the dead continent. "Today, we have assembled you, the Academy's finest, to lead the battle against these foes. They have come from another world to kill all of humanity in a genocidal rampage. Their numbers seem limitless, But forget that! We have a Duty to the World to use our powers to make it a better place! Sooner or later we'll have to fight... Even in our safe hold of the Babylos... So I say we fight them now! In the Cold ruins of Antarctica, we shall stand our Ground!"
And with that, the thirty thousand soldiers/students the Academy had gathered yelled in mixed unison. They were standing in the middle of the icy field, magical protection about them, as they awaited for what seemed to be the Foe of the World. In the corners of their eyes, the Tracers could see what seemed to be the first sign of the innumerable army approach, but they were not sure. Behind them, the ruins the Academy owned stood, tall, preparing for another tempest...
The gathered fighters knew not what they fought or for what reasons... All they knew was that if they did nothing,the world would be blow to pieces... All the warriors gathered came from different backgrounds, but all wanted to fight whatever the hell this is. Photos have confirmed the appearance of the Magical World's foes... But no announcement beyond the first speech was made about this genocide. But that didn't matter... What mattered was getting these bastards back for what they did to the mundane world, and the fact that perhaps no longer, the Magical World could not stay in the open...
Meanwhile, aboard one of the ships..
"Remiel... Is everything in place?"
"Yes Lord Michael, I have just sent Sariel to Antarctica in order to fight the Academy."
"Excellent. What of the others?"
"Gabriel is doing fine in her campaign against Africa. All she has had to deal with so far are Vampires, Werewolves, and other such weaklings. Raphael is doing fine in his battle against D-13, he under stands them perhaps better than they do themselves. Raguel is continuing her assault upon the Heathens in South America, and Uriel has already establish a foot hold in Australia. I myself am doing fine against the Rosecrucians, but I do fear for Sariel, your Lord."
"Do not be.... We are charged by the power of God. We have came here, we the Sons of Light, to make war upon the Sons of Darkness... Those who would seek to use magic. They are the followers of Belial, Remiel. So claimed by our lord Metatron, and we must follow it through onto the end... Lest we let God's work fall into darkness...."
"Indeed my lord, let us wipe out the Edom, Moab, the sons of Ammon, the Amalekites, Philistia, and the Kittim of Asshur. They shall feel the divine wrath they hath wrought onto themselves. We are the Angels of God Himself! We shall purify this dark world in his holy name! Amen General Michael!"
"Amen Arc Angel Remiel."
