The Story so far...
A war is waging. A war that will effect the outcome of future generations. A war between two factions, the Defenders and the Defilers. The defilers represent the scourge of the Earth, stopping at nothing in order to suck the land dry and crack it down to the core. The world's only hope for survival is the defenders who have pledged their allegiance and will protect it at all costs.
Defenders are all round good guys. They are a mixed bunch of eco warriors who mean business and even though they may look like an unlikely bunch, they are more than a challenge for the Defilers.
As a defender your mission is is to rid the earth from the evil defilers, destroying their polluting machinery and once again creating harmony within eden….
There are currently 3 defender characters to choose from, the Hippy, the Farmer and the Forester…
The Hippy, frustrated at the defilers for interrupting peace time, with a great determination to flip reality back in favor of the defenders. The Hippy, armed with increased speed and low armor, has the amazing ability to obscure players vision making them see the world through rose colored glasses with special psychedelic juice or heal own team members in need.
The Farmer, sick of contaminants in his soil and after having discovered a way to filter them and create damaging swill he will continue his quest to rid the destructive defilers from the planet, a strong offense or defense character has the ability to place down traps and back up team members with heavy swill artillery.
The Forester, furious at the continued cutting down of his woodland, armed with nature and his water jet is determined to cleanse Eden from the filthy defilers, a healing class of this team and can use the jet to rejuvenate the objective, why not try unleashing your squirrel in times of hardship.
The exact motive for such evil actions by the Defilers is quite unknown. It is assumed money but there may be a much deeper conspiracy that is yet to be uncovered. All we know for now is that they will stop at nothing to protect their foul oil pump as it poisons the earth. Defilers hold an inexplicable hatred for the Defenders. They see them as childish do-gooders and they want to teach them a lesson. They have an urge to kill anything under their protection such as a tree or whale.
There are currently 3 defiler characters to choose from, the Tramp, the Nuclear Scientist and the Oil Baron.
The Tramp, angry at others for not providing him with what he needs, hell bent on getting his own back on the world and all those who protect it. a weak character with increased speed and low armor, the tramp has the ability to obscure users vision with his burger and flies.
The Nuclear Scientist, had a taste of power and now wants more, determined to be all powerful will stop at nothing to reach the top. The cost of the planet and those in it is but a small price to pay, a strong offense or defense character, with the ability to inflict the opposition with radioactive damage from his powerful plasma gun or from strategically placed barrels.
The Oil Baron, cashed in on the worlds greed for oil, will stop at nothing to to ever increase his wealth, armed with a rare one of a kind oil jet he is a healing class of this team and can use his jet to rejuvenate the objective, or slow down the opposing team. Why not try placing oil barrels in strategic places to slow down the opposition.
