You know, in hindsight, when the massive ring opened up in the sky, that should have been the first tip that something really, really fuckin' bad was about to happen.
We were really interested in it. I mean, who the fuck wouldn't be? It was a big hole in the sky that had this big, black patch of nothing inside of it. Nothing happened for the first few days it showed up there. It was like someone just blotted out a part of the sky. We sent drones up there, planes and countless other aircraft to see what the deal was and we didn't find nothing up there. It was just...a hole to nothing.
And then that hole to nothing spit something out. Something really, really bad.
It came without warning but then again this shit usually does. Despite all of our tech and despite everything we thought we knew about the hole, it was definitely doing something bad to us, it was pumping...SOMETHING into the atmosphere. We couldn't pick it up, we couldn't see it, we couldn't smell it or anything like that but then again, most poisons tend to be impossible to detect anyway, right? Wanna know how we knew something was going on when it did?
''Thomas Alton, a 32 year old used Car Salesman in Springvale, Utah, was going about his day, kissed his wife goodbye, said he loved his kids and then drove to work-And on the way there, out of fucking nowhere, he exploded and turned into this wild, insane looking thing. Damn thing looked like a turtle had relations with a wolf with a fucking bat thrown in for good measure. Thing was bigger than a damn skyscraper. You know how long it took for us to put it down?"
Long enough to completely clear out all life in the South-Western corner of Utah and enough for them to evacuate literally all of Las Vegas, just to be on the safe side, It didn't make it that far but it came within a damn hair of obliterating it.
People freaked the fuck out immediately. World leaders demanded answers and you know what, so did we. We took a look at everything that Wolf-Bat-Turtle thing, and we found it still have Thomas Alton's DNA inside of it. It took a week, and everyone came to the conclusion that the hole up in the sky was the cause of it. And suddenly, everyone became everyone's worst enemy. You know why? Because suddenly everyone was a walking, talking time bomb of monster awfulness. And you know what? We were right to be scared. Because soon after people just randomly turned into monsters and completely wiped out the city they were around. We lost more than we gained when we came to stop them, and knew we couldn't just keep throwing soldiers at these things praying that we had enough that time to bring it down with minimal casualties.
You know, we lost 10,513 one attack? We considered it a fucking GOOD thing.
But you know what we came up with one time? One really, really fucking good idea? We grew up in a generation of people with way too much time on our hands. We could have put together a massive weapon that destroyed these things without a second thought, but you knwo what I think we needed?
Yeah, we could have set up massive weapons that blasted these things, but the power that we would have needed would have caused so much nuclear fallout, Chernobyl would have looked like an oil spill. So some of the egg heads up top discovered that even passively, whatever the hole was pumping out, it was changing us all. Not all of us were exploding into horrible monsters. I don't know what was up there but I don't think they thought we were smart enough to use that damn thing against them.
So we made power sources with what we had, highly experimental technology that was at least three decades away from use suddenly saw a jump in attention in three weeks. They were definitely capable, but only if the resulting power source could handle it. And guess what those mutations up there were doing to us? Suddenly, the power source had an outlet. And you know what those outlets went to?
Well, remember, this generation was ruled by nerds, geeks and weebs. So of course we made robots out of them.
Twisted and mutated enough to resist the strain of the power cells and strong enough mentally and physically to power a massive, twenty story robot at the same time, and suddenly, the casualties dropped down to double digits at most.
Suddenly, we had a chance at this whole thing.
People are still paranoid. People are still scared. And people are still turning into monsters.
But you know what?
The people are still fighting.
And that's what's most important.
You wanna fight? Save humanity? Get to the bottom of this? Good answer. My name is Commander Eskin, and I'm the leader of the GAKDS. The Global Anti Kaiju Defense Squad.
Suit up kid. Let's kill some fucking monsters.
Welcome to GAKDS, where you get to suit up, grab a giant power sword and beat up some Godzilla level threats about every thursday.
Skies of Ash and Fire is a Kaiju vs Humongous Mecha roleplay on a global scale. People are turning into Kaijus and you need to fight them off to save the world, and figure out what that hole in the sky is and why it's doing what it's doing. This is a story about the survival of the human race, the struggles of the heroes with the literal weight on their shoulders, and finding the urge to put get in the fucking Robot and fighting again.
And big anime battles but that goes without saying.
This is a story of hope. This is a story of friends and finding the strength in the darkness. And while there is darkness there is always a light to struggle and fight for.
So, let's get you a robot, huh?
And by the by, if logic doesn't make sense here? Shut up it's robot anime, let's just have fun, yeah?

Everyone looks good! Accepted!
The roleplay will be up tonight and a new discord will follow shortly after! Spots are still open for those who still want to join!
To anyone else, the discord server was opened now. Come in to hang out and discuss your ideas for pretty much everything relative to the game. Note, the invite link will only last a few days.
Yo, any word on Weiss?

Unfortunately due to sources telling me that you don’t have Discord, I’m afraid I will need to decline at this time. Apologies but it is vital.
