Concept Art: MainFrame

Eons ago the world existed as one. All of human civilization and their MetaAndroids lived in the 12 Colonies powered by the TechCore. With the Council of Seven Coves, the MainFrame controlled its subjects. Alphas were separated at birth. The rest of the world was divided between the Miners and the Shipbuilders.

Is Science Fiction a belief system?

What is science fiction? Is it a projection of our current ideas into a future self? Is it a delineation of the ‘now’ into a future world? Or is it a fantastical understanding of a brave new world in itself? Fiction deals with imagination. And science wades in knowledge. Is there a conflict of interest here? Or is it the same channel?

We often talk about suspension of disbelief as a medium to understand the nuances of a fictional world. An alien universe, a foreign land, a zone distant from our ‘standard’ way of understanding. Is science fiction possible because we believe in a logical progression of things yet keep alive our disbelief? Our disbelief that colours our sense of wonder.

Science deals with the world of observation and repeatable experiments. And fiction deals in imagination, in make belief, in fantasy. Is it a rebuilding of a world? Can science fiction only exist after we have lost our current home? Human greed and violence will tear us apart. Apocalypse will descend. We will be lost. And then the aliens will come to rescue or to build anew. Godot will come to visit. The aliens will be our gods that we could never find in our world.

Is science fiction our final act of belief? A world destroyed into a million little shards. And the second coming greets us and makes us one.

Concept Art: The Myth

Era |||:|

Even today the Phantom Warriors of the NeonGuards keep searching for that weapon, that spell, that weakness that keeps the planet still alive. They have plundered, destroyed, annihilated the planet yet MainFrame still breathes, it still lives on. The air of the land is drenched in toxic fumes. Biocorrossive chemical residues mask the surface. Nothing remains of any civilization that once lived yet the forces of Anteros continues the search for the missing link.

NeonGuards are perfect soldiers. Created and bred to be warriors. Armed by the known universe’s most advanced technocratic society. Vin Anteros also sent his favourite project, the Athenas. They can find out anything. Anything that has ever been hidden can be detected by them. No matter how deep you hide, how high you fling, how lost you get. Athenas find. They are inquisitive little robots. Creatures of artificial intelligence. It remembers. And it searches. It searches now for the lost clue.

Long ago, time swept in the memories of a child, Vin Anteros. It was a myth, an old story and an oracle. That the seed of the MainFrame’s downfall lay buried in its own skin. Vin Anteros has waited for his revenge. He is now mad with vengeance. His eyes fueled with the miners misery. He searches for the final weapon that will finish the tale of the Mainframe and all it will remain will be debris in space, floating for eternity alone.

The destiny of Vin Anteros lies in the heart of the mangled MainFrame.

Concept Art: The Fall of Tartarus

Tartarus has witnessed the rise and the fall of many civilizations. It has been the cradle and the grave to many a brave and many a sullied. The origins of the warrior race of the NeonGuards is deeply entwined with the history of Tartarus. Once fortified by a thousand turrets and guarded by the NeonBlasters, it is today the land of the scavengers. The secrets of the old trees and the chants of the high priests of Arhat are now lost forever in a background of treachery and revenge.

The priests of Arhat left the planet immediately when the ever greedy MainFramers sent their miners to work in their sacred lands. But long before the collapse of the Mainframe, before the rise of the NeonGuards, before the miners were abandoned, before the shipbuilders of NuyerXelta, the land of Tartarus was the last of Nature’s refuse. It was initiated as a balance to the mechanical world. Nothing of that world exists anymore.

Tartarus is now the graveyard of the forsaken and the home to the lost.

Concept Art: Vin Anteros

This is the last known picture of Vin Anteros. A young cadet of the Mega Tech Force Omicron and one of the most promising stars of the newly formed tactical unit on MainFrame. He along with his team are sent to Tartarus to oversee the mining of the sacred land. When the MainFramers abandon Tartarus along with thousands of worn out miners, Anteros raises his voice in rebellion.

Vin Anteros becomes the future supreme commander of the NeonGuards, the prime architect of Tartarus, the builder of Adrestia Prime, the conqueror of Ceres and harbinger of the War of Xion.

He brings the universe to the Gates of Egnon. And Chaos reigns again.

Concept Art: Adrestia Prime

Adrestia Prime is a language of war. Created for justice but coloured in vengeance. Built under the exact guidelines of the supreme commander, Vin Anteros, this is a warship of complete annihilation. Charged by Dieu Generators using Promethium 61 mined from Kronus, it is the pride of the technocratic society of the NeonGuards.

The Harbour of Harmony is one of the three ultra docks on Ceres. Unhinged from the Main Grid, these docks are the station to the most ruthless warships in the known galaxy.

The  NeonGuards are heading towards the War of Xion. Many world will be consumed in this terrible war. Vin Anteros and his forsaken people will be avenged but the gates of Egnon will be thrown open. And chaos will reign again.

Concept Art: Tartarus

Long before becoming the supreme commander of the NeonGuards, Vin Anteros was the prime architect of Tartarus. He created the new world and the new order out of the ruins of the garden satellite.

Tartarus was initially created as a balance to the mechanical world. It was the last of nature’s refuse. A sanctuary for the oldest of the species. The high priests of Arhats lived here guarding the forests, invoking the ancient spirits of nature. But the greed of the MainFrame grew. They sent miners to Tartarus. For years it  was heavily mined to supply fuel for the Mega TechCore, the halo to MainFramers’ newer reaches. And then abandoned.

Thousands of worn out miners were left stranded. Anteros was allowed to leave but he refused. The blueprint of a newer world was imprinted on his nascent mind. The helplessness and cruelly of the Mainframers cut deep into his psyche.

In the years to come, he planned and commissioned the elaborate standing defense of Tartarus. His fields of turrets replaces the sunflowers. The NeonBlasters replaced the butterflies. A race deeply seeped in hatred and seeking vengeance was born. Out of the pristine and  fertile land of Tartarus grew the martial race of the NeonGuards.

Concept Art: The Forces of NeonGuards

The NeonGuards command the most elaborate and lethal tactical units in the New History. After the collapse of the MainFrame, the known world drifted towards two poles.

The NuyerXelta IX became the hub for the shipbuilders while the NeonGuards took control over the fringe planets and satellites. Within a few years, they militarized their units and waged the gruesome War of NeonGrid against NuyerXelta.

Ceres is the prime base of the NeonGuards. Heavily fortified and sanctified by the old gods of war, the base has never been breached or escaped from. The close proximity to its moon Kronus helps Ceres meet its huge energy requirement. Kronus is mined for Promethium 61 to fuel its generators.

Under the leadership of legendary technocrat Vin Anteros, the NeonGuards  were raised as a martial race. Their war vehicles are peerless. Their will, ironclad. War became their language and the battlefield their home.
