War. War never changes.
The Romans waged war to gather slaves and wealth. Spain built an empire from its lust for gold and territory. Hitler shaped a battered Germany into an economic superpower.
But war never changes.
In the 21st century, war was still waged over the resources that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of war were also its weapons: Sakuradite. For these resources, The Order of the Black Knights would invade China, Britannia would annex Japan, and the Chinese Federation would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining resources on Earth.
In 2018, the storm of world war had come again. In two brief hours, most of the planet was reduced to cinders. And from the ashes of nuclear devastation, a new civilization would struggle to arise.
