The year is...something something something. Most of the Earth's energy problems have been solved by high energy fuel cells, an Orbital Solar Energy Network and wind power from constant storms and hurricanes as a result of climate change. A chunk of our little planet is Hell. Australia is depopulated and mostly used for energy and coastal farming. Africa is more developed, but still an underdog. Eurasia, the Americas and Asia are the home of rich, developed societies and techy doodads. A Twilight War is fought between Europe, America, East Asia against Russia. A Bunch was formed between the others against Russia. Mechs are deployed for the first time and Russia gets flattened. This heralds the end of the Information Age and the beginning of the...Something Age. Russia is forced to join the Bunch in exchange for not paying hefty reparations and being able to hold their original territory. Thing is, East Asia gets whiny about this. They want that big chunk of Russia they acquired. It's about now that China breaks offa the Bunch and a dictator rises, preaching Pan-Asianism. That is Asians should band together and boot everyone else out. Asian nations join the new club etc. etc. Fast forward a bit, you get 2 main superpowers, with individual states in between. The Bunch and the Other Bunch. The Other Bunch is almost entirely east Asian. The Bunch is everyone else. The Other Bunch develops real good and builds a ginormous army. Like King Xerxes ginormous. They smack their way through India and Russia (sorry, Russia) before getting their asses halted. Then they redivert a helluva lot of their st00fz to the Australia and smash it. A failed invasion of North America prompts them to redirect again. To South America. South America is cracked quickly and The Bunch pulls out. This is where the thingy I'm writing is set. It's the counterattack into South America by The Bunch. They start at a fictional city and begin clawing inward. Massive fleets blow each other and civilians to bits, groundpounders in mechs, tanks and average soldiers blow stuff up on a smaller scale and deliver macho dialogue whilst suave pilots give the finger to enemy pilots. I just want to know the validity of this setting. Most of it's a timeline leading up to this and there is no real list of characters or such to speak of. I want to see if the setting is sound. The plot is mostly 'The Bunch shows up and starts kicking ass. Author writes it.' The issue with backstory I'm having is the Pan-Asian side. I named them the Pan-Asian Union. Thing is, Battlefield 2142 is also about a war in the future between 2 superpowers. One even has 'Pan-Asian' in the title. I'm trying to not make it feel like a ripoff. Hell, 2142's Pan-Asian side doesn't even have many real Asians in it. >.> But mostly, here's my idea. What do you think of it?
