In the dim void of space, the Galactic Alliance of Humankind clings willfully to continued existence With Earth long lost, and habitable planets essentially unheard of, most live in wandering ships or settled stations. It is an existence that would be considered strange by their ancestors, but not unpleasant. That is, if it were not for the great enemy. A grim war is waged against a race of space-faring cephalopods, known to the Alliance as the "Hideauze," in almost every corner of known space. Vicious creatures that ignore any and all attempts at communication, their bizarre living weaponry makes them worthy foes. The pilots of the Alliance Navy and Machine Caliber Corps are all that stands between human civilization- embodied by the magnificent capital, Avalon -and the tentacled hordes. Earth may be lost, but it is not gone. Though no Alliance map includes it, the planet still supports a population of humans. Ocean levels have risen and much of the world is covered, with many living their whole lives without seeing dry land. The states of Liberistan and Augustonia feud constantly over what land remains, and their borders are kept closed with naval force. Those not counted amongst their citizenship live in migrant fleets, earning a living by salvaging equipment from the lost civilization that lines the seabed. The Hideauze are here too, though they are notably less aggressive than their space-faring counter-parts, often ignoring human activity unless directly provoked. The natives refer to them as "Whale-Squid." But now, a FTL accident has deposited a little bit of the Galactic Alliance back upon the planet from which they originated. The combat pilot Ledo and his Machine Caliber mech, designation Chamber K6821, have crashed and sunk into the sea. Six months from now, he will be fished up by the salvage crews of the Gargantia fleet and awoken from suspended animation. To prepare you for your stay, here is 1000cp. Discounts are 50%, as usual. Upgrades cost the same as the base option (an additional payment) without discounts or freebies. Jump by CortexAnon and Ichypa Oh, man, get a load of this. Funny, I seem to recall our talks being ignored. Yeah, kind of endearing how they don’t shoot us in the face just for existing.

The Galactic Alliance of Humankind will assume you're a fresh recruit for the Machine Caliber Corps upon spotting you (meaning you are not a citizen and have no rights until you pull 145,000 combat hours against the Great Enemy), and other communities will just take you for another face in the crowd. You know enough to get by, but have no concrete history or friends. The galaxy's a big place, and it's easy to fall through the cracks. Be

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
