Urban Assault Frontier: The Return of The Resistance + The Taerkasten Crusade

Post by LloydJara » Sun Mar 08, 2015 11:37 pm

Urban Assault Frontier:
Part 1:The Return of the Resistance
Part 2: The Taerkasten Crusade


Urban Assault Frontier is a two-part Modding Project aiming to continue UA's story after the Metropolis Dawn Campaigns.

The first part shows how after a huge conflict between the three human factions and the revival of both alien factions named "Control War", the Resistance was once again close to its destruction, however some mysterious heroine came to save this faction and change the destiny of the entire planet.
But her quest will be hard and full of hazards.. The Black Sect is gone, but two new threats, stronger than Mykonians and Sulgogars are rising... Will she be able to save the entire planet from imminent destruction or perish like SDU7 and the other SDU's?

The second campaign, the Taerkasten Crusade begins after this fanatic brotherhood, who was pulled back to Africa by SDUX's Resistance, feels a real grudge against their fellow human counterparts. They originated from Europe... and they want back their territories once for all!
One Champion may give the Taerkastens all the glory and end the New World Order. It's all left to you.

WE HAVE ENEMY CONTACT

Good Luck...


GENERAL STORYLINE:
(More information will be revealed during both campaigns)

1 Month before SDU7
After the Big Mistake the Resistance was close to certain destruction, but then SDU7, the last hope of the Resistance and humanity was created....

[Here the Original UA campaign takes Place]

Unknown time after the Original Campaign
The greatest scientists of The Resistance, after a few months of research, found a way to make SDU units last longer by turning human hosts into 90% robotic cyborgs, with most of their vital organs, muscles and skin replaced with artificial ones. Newer SDU's were able to keep themselves alive as long as they war allows them to.
Older SDU's were improved as well. Although they won't last as much as they newer counterparts, this process guaranteed a 25-year lifespan for these old units, including the legendary SDU7.

While all this happened the Resistance, headed by SDU7, sent a mixture of older and some new units to attack Ghorkovs and Taerkastens all over their homelands, defeating them and causing mayor loses to them. Over the course of the years they took over most of Eurasia and Africa, thus the Resistance became the main power of the Old World and allowing the remaining human survivors live better inside the few undamaged domes scattered arround their territory.

Mykonians developed a new Parasite to take over Earth while the remaining Sulgogars colonies slowly came back into the war.
It's unknown what happened with the Black Sect, but they were alive.. somewhere.

[Here both Metropolis Dawn Campaigns takes Place]

1 Year After Metropolis Dawn
The Resistance was defeated on those territories and forced to stay in Europe. Taerkastens regain control over Africa and Ghorkovs over Asia. The Black Sect was destroyed so MD was the last time we heard of their existence.

Unknown to the terran factions, Mykonians were sending mother ships from their homeland to Earth, their intention was clear, they still wanted to drain energy from our planet and destroy us, and after all our efforts to eradicate them... they really want to extinguish humans..

Sulgogars on the other hand buried themselves underground for healing and recovering, seeking to eat all humans remaining. They wouldn't emerge until a few years later, when the "Control War" begun.

During a small campaign Resistance briefly regained control over the north of Africa and a small zone of Asia, however they were forced back to Europe and even lost some of their own territories.

2-1/2 Years After M.D.
Mykonians became strong enough to attack humans a year after they started regaining strength. They also developed new technologies and made their weapons even stronger, developing massive destruction weaponry strong enough to destroy everything in a matter of seconds.

The aliens begun their attacks. Since their remaining forces were scattered in the middle of a Resistean controlled area (Europe), they attacked (and destroyed) them, regaining control over the northern parts of Europe and Africa.

During this process they started a war with Taers and Kovs' as well, who were planning a temporal alliance against the Resistance as they both fell the Resistance was a real threat for them and they have to eradicate them, even if they have to join forces, something that Taerkastens didn't like at first, but agreed.

3-1/2 Years After M.D.
Mykonians by this time had control over all the northern part of Europe and a portion of Asia.

Sulgogars woke up from their hibernation and quickly overtook some African territories.

The Control War:
Ghorkovs and Taerkastens, realizing that the Resistance was getting weaker because of the constant attacks from Mykonians attacked small gaps that were not under control of Sulgogars and Mykonians, trying to gain territories over Europe. This ended up with the Resistance, Mykonians, Sulgogars and the Kov-Taer alliance fighting each other for the control of Europe, thus marking the formal start of the "Control War".

A new Faction emerges from the unknown, they claim to be the saviors of America, and that they came to conquer the destroyed barbaric European continent. They call themselves "New Paradigm". Some believe that the remaining scavengers of the Black Sect, called from help and this was the answer... but we'll never know.

Exactly 4 Years After M.D.
The Drone Crisis: Robotic practice drones became intelligent and turned sides against the Resistance, some people believe that a mad scientist modified them to make em' aware of their own existence and they "slavery".

4-1/4 Years After M.D.
As the war progresses, The Resistance, attacked everywhere by Kovs', Taers, Mykos, Sulogs, the Drones and the New Paradigm gets overwhelmed by the other Factions.
By this date SDU7, the last living Old SDU and the symbol of the Resistance, dies in Wide Field under Ghorkov hands.

This event marked the decay of the Resistance, after this they progressively lost territories until they were only present in UK. Ghorkovs and Taerkastens made it into England a few months after SDU7's death, defeating the Resistance, destroying all their technology and making the Resistance disappear forever.... Or maybe not?

3 Months after the end of the War
Resistance resurrects thanks to a couple of scientists who managed to survive and rebuild everything in Scotland. The Resistance came back to life in an era where all the other factions were fighting for the control of the former territories of the Resistance, just like years ago, when SDU7 was buildt.
Since they lacked any drone model or a fully working SDU to fight, two new drones were designed, the Spider and the Condor as well as SDUX, the first Post-War SDU that will be the one who makes the Resistance rise and shine again. Her (Yes, her) mission? Recover the old technologies to improve them and destroy all the other factions once for all.

I sent this video to our Discord #ua-modding channel, but i guess i should send the link here too. This project is NOT dead (It's more alive than ever)

Thanks to Bronsteijn24k for the Mole icon (and some new upcoming), MarioSDUX for allowing me to use some New MD / Fan-made icons, and pscx for his valuable info about UA's lore so far (Currently writing some of the Briefings as well)
