2015 - 2067
2062 The first Artificial Intelligence units are sold to the public. This revolutionizes technological capabilities. It is the most revolutionary invention since smart tech and alters the lifestyle of humankind forever. 2064 Artificial Intelligence is utilized in the military and police forces, minimizing the loss of human life in the performance of duty for national security. Defense drones prove hugely successful. Within a few short years, A.I. is used in all major countries, globally. 2067 International terror manifests to the repetition of invading nations. World-wide fear and clandestine assault triggers the start to what will be known as World War III. 2067 Artificial Intelligence is a new frontier for warfare. Unmanned tanks, ships, subs, aerial crafts are the new face of war. Human casualty is the lowest percentage ever documented. Drones, once again, are a global success.
2067 - 2074
2070 Society has taken a backseat to the war. While machines cushion the brutality of national conflict, mankind finds comfortable ways to wait it out. With personal loss and risk so far removed, the public takes to creating a spectator sport out of the war. Businesses find ways to market off the success or failure of military operations. 2074 An anonymous, antagonistic hack overrides all military robots. Instead of targeting enemy nations, machines are repurposed to target humankind. Police enforcement A.I. is hacked weeks after. The origin of the malicious override cannot be traced. 2074 Nations pointing blame at one another for the A.I. hack begin the start of nuclear conflict. The length of missile devastation is uncertain, as is the national origin of first launch. By the end, all nuclear-armed countries have fired from their silos. Human fatality is phenomenal.
2074 - 2078
2074 The end to the war comes when the organization calling itself "Ultra" takes it upon itself to hack into the broken systems and shut them down. All A.I. goes offline. Command centers around the world lose control. Nuclear fire ceases. 2074 Ultra calls for an international cease-fire & announces victory. Ultra presents the Armistice Concordat of 2074 to all nations. Accepting the terms of the Concordat gives allegiance to the Ultra Organization - swearing loyalty, resources, and citizenship to the new nation. To refuse the Concordat is to remain with the wasteland war has left behind. 2074 Ultra reprograms all A.I. and reboots for construction of the largest social restoration project to date since WWII. The Arcadian States begin to assemble. 2078 Four years of construction and the last of the Arcadian States stand as monolithic pillars of humanity. Living in these colossal structures saves mankind from the devastation of nuclear fallout and the barren wastelands remaining.
2078 - 2113
2079 Ultra, unwilling to use drones for defensive and offensive purposes, reinstates civil duty back into human hands. Private policing forces are hired for law enforcement in the White Lion Arcadia Capital and all Arcadian states. 2080-2081 Arcadian state voters win the campaign to elect a governmental leader. Eminence Tandi is elected by The Citizens of Arcadia as first National Overseer. Ultra Organization disolves into White Tower security. 2098 The declining health of Eminence Tandi renders a new electoral campaign necessary for Arcadian rule. Eminence Sallow wins the majority vote for new Arcadian Overseer. 2111-2113 The Android Uprising of 2111 starts in the Capital State. It witholds for 2 years, fighting for freedom from synthetic slavery. Hundreds to thousands of A.I. Units are decommissioned during this time. Human casualty paints the uprising as a great Arcadian tragedy, reinforcing the need to deny greater rights and privilege to artificials.
2114 - 2134
2116 The entire Arcadian nation mourns the assassination of Eminence Sallow. The assassins are never uncovered, but it is believed to be tied to the underground insurgent movement. Heightened security is installed for Overseer protection. A 12th level to the Capital city is constructed for newly elected Eminence Eden. 2125 The newly reorganized department of propaganda restructures the use of public denouncements. Citizens find it much simpler to file official, government denouncements against any possible anti-White Tower sympathizers. Propaganda boasts of this heightened, national security tactic. 2134 It has been 60 years from the passing of the Armistice Concordat. The Diamond Jubilee is held in its honor, welcoming over half a century worth of Arcadian rule and peace.

Life has a funny way of making great progress in casual strides. Technology has always been one of mankind's greatest achievements, and it grows and expands by leaps and bounds per decade. Fifty years of technological advancements had done wonders for society. Everything is instant. Everything is digital. Life is customizable; the world at your fingertips. The greatest breakthrough since the invention of the smartphone showcases: Artificial Intelligence Units. All the capability of your personal mobile devices incorporated with the on-hand service and performance of hired labor. Baby-sitters, dog-walkers, cooks, maids - it's the answer to human need in a marketable box. With the dawn of advanced A.I. comes the first of military droids. Society is now comfortable and reliant on their robotic assistance, lulled into a sense of instant convenience with a brave new digital world. Manless drones in the sky had become commonplace, so it wasn't hard to move that technology to land and to sea. Unmanned rover tanks, unmanned submarines - it was saving lives, protecting soldiers, protecting families. Eventually these protections were utilized in the police force. Fifty years of technological leaps and bounds and human casualty in the service of duty was at an all-time low. Humanity was in love with tech. A few years after showcasing and it all falls apart. Worldwide tension, animosity, disagreements, hate - one country invades another. It's war. War is everywhere. It's on the news, it's in your feed, it's broadcasted, publicized, transmitted - static war in the air. But this time, droids are dying. Drone ships are torpedoed, drone crafts are shot down. Human tallies of K.I.A. are minor in comparison. With its robotic cushion, society can distance itself from the gravity of the situation. It does. Seven years of this strange complacency and then it all comes to an end. The unthinkable happens. It's a hack. It starts with the military droids first. Everything goes offline. For five minutes, the military powers across the globe go silent. When it reboots, new directives are received. The machines are no longer targeting each other, they're targeting everyone else. This time it's human devastation. Human loses. Human lives. This hadn't been a reality for seven years. The police forces around the world shutdown next. It's like science fiction. Like a Hollywood movie. It doesn't go on for very long. Someone, somewhere, pushes a button. Nuclear warheads go live. It's impossible to claim the first nation to trigger missile launch - within moments several countries are releasing rockets. Once the warheads start dropping onto populations, over cities, every nuclear-armed nation is retaliating against the other. Silos are emptied. They say it only took three hours. Three hours and then a new entity emerges. The organization is called 'Ultra', and it hacks worldwide command centers. Missiles not yet released are shut down indefinitely. Not a single warhead remaining will see light. Ultra goes in and takes control over the rogue droids. Hacks into the police operating units, personal android machines. A.I. goes offline. Ultra claims a win to the war and itself a sovereign nation. The Armistice Concordat is presented globally. There are only two options you have: Declare allegiance to Ultra, surrender necessary lands and resources to the nation, take citizenship under this new banner, and be saved - or remain sovereign in the wastelands wrought by your own destruction. Of those who survived, most choose allegiance. Ultra boots up the machines, new directives in place, and begins the process of mending what was broken. The nation of Arcadia was founded in the wake of the Third World War. Nuclear devastation had destroyed much of the former way of life - human hate and human error leading to one of the most destructive wars since WWII. To save humanity from the ravages of fallout and radiation blasting, monolithic pillars were created as metropolis ports to shelter humankind. Eleven levels tall and each level as high as a skyscraper, these vast cities stood as solemn monuments to the old world lost. A lesson to never be forgotten. Order was re-established. An Eminence elected into leadership. Laws and regulations drafted to govern the people. War, clashing countries, military machines - these were all phantoms of a failed world. There was unity and reborn trust in human capability to protect and oversee its own. Fifty-seven years of Arcadian rule and life is complacent and comfortable, the memories of the world before nothing but ghosts found in educational ebooks. This is your life now.
