    This is backstory on a roleplay gamemode my newfound community is working on.
    I want to share it to get some reviews on it. It's mostly compromised of historical text based on an alternate reality of ours.
    Hearth is a giant land mass surrounded by sea with a smaller land mass next to it. The planet is called Hearth and I have yet to name the two continents. Right now we just have the country names.
    Soon I will get further indepth. Detailing the lives of the Six Kings, detailing more war stories.
    This correlates with the steampunk map and steampunk models I've requested in the gmod section.

    There are six men who prevail in their own professions:

    The Leader, Charles Winfold. The one who controls the five others and the organisation they created which rules the world as we know it.

    The Military Colonel, Hans Kriskoff. He rules the majority of the army controlled by the organisation and quells any rebellion on any corner of the planet.

    The Economist, Ralph Plaw. Keeping the flow of money circulating around the world, he keeps everything in check with stock prices and when needed, halts flow to a certain location for various reasons.

    The Mastermind, Theodore Quinn. The genius behind the whole plan to overthrow the government before the organisation took over. He designed the nuclear weapon which desecrated Piety and this in turn started a chain of events leading to the present world today.

    The Psychic, Phillip Phin. Able to read minds of people he's looking at directly, his aid in the world domination helped greatly in destroying the world economy and leaving the organisation to rebuild it.

    The Engineer, Joseph Mckensy. Furthering the technology of science, he and his team of scientist create many contraptions with their limited tools of steam.

    These six men are never seen together in the one place at the same time. They each have their own sections of the world to monitor and meet once a month through holographic devices to discuss matters of the world. The one time they were all seen together and known as The Six Kings was when the nuclear device was launched on November 2, 1936.

    Their story from being simple men to the world leaders will question your ethics and morals, what's right and what's wrong. However, this is simply stating the events between the invention of steam and present times.

    In the first century, Heron of Alexandria invented the first steam engine.

    Between 1711 and 1769 there were many adjustments to the design that Heron created and like Einstein's cousin Jerry, only one of them will be remembered in history.

    During the Industrial Revolution (1750-1850) Steam was widely used and expanded over the world. Fossil Fuels were never discovered so technology was limited to steam engines.

    1900 - The First of the six future leaders were born.
    1902 - First steam engine plane was invented
    1906 - The war between Sinew and Piety breaks out and lasts for three decades.
    1923 - 1930 - Many advancements in technology which are similar to modern times and even futuristic.
    1936 - The organisation known as The Six Kings is officially formed. Shortly after forming the organisation, their first action was to launch the worlds first Nuclear Steam Missile. (NSM)
    1937 - The Pieties surrenders to the organisation who have overthrown Sinew. The organisation's influence begins spreading across the world.
    1940 - The first rebellion outbreak recorded since the takeover of Sinew.
    1944 - Organisation The Six Kings has total world domination.

    1902 - First steam engine plane invented

    TODAY is a historical day for man! Mankind has conquered the land and now we have conquered the skies by making the first man fly in the world’s first ‘aeroplane’ created by the Pieties.
    The Pieties have given the King of Sinew the schematics of the aeroplane and are showing our engineers how it works. A spokesman, Robert Jenny says, “We are extremely glad the President of Piety allowed us to fly the skies alongside his men. In the near and far future I can see many ways we can use this as a way to travel and to promise a lasting relationship with our ally.”

    The technology behind the aeroplane is called ‘aero dynamics’ which uses the wind to keep the plane gliding like a bird taking a rest from flapping it’s wings after a long journey.
    The minister of defence is most intrigued by this newfound technology and asks for planes to be militarized. An official answer by the King is yet to be heard of.

    1906 - War between Sinew and Piety

    The President of the Republic of Piety believes that he was contacted directly from his almighty god, Kel’Rum. The God demanded that the blasphemers across the emptiness of the water must pay for not bowing down to him. The President, Thomas Lowing immediately assembled his army to sneak-attack Sinew. As confident as he was, his country doubted his actions but were reassured once he gave his speech the following night after the first strike in Sinew began.
    “My fellow Pieties. Approximately twenty four hours ago, I was directly contacted by Kel’Rum himself. He demands that the Sinewers pay with their lives for not worshipping his almightiness. I dare not refuse the word of Kel’Rum for that it would bring destruction upon us. If blood must be spilled for our lord, who are we to reject his word? The blasphemers must pay.”
    The roar of clapping filled the stadium and the King of Sinew refused to be beaten but for 30 years they were unable to assimilate Piety until the nuclear incident occurred.

    There are many war stories on both sides but there are none other than the Holding of Tenningville, a coastal town of Sinew. A total of 535 men were deployed to that town in 1910 and every single man held off Tenningville until their dying breathe. In the end it was a loss for Sinew but they defended it against all odds…for 10 years they held the town until the final push on 1920 when the Piety went behind enemy lines to infiltrate and plant TEBs. (Toxic Emission Bombs)

    1923 - 1930 - Many advancements in technology which are similar to modern times and even futuristic.
    The advancements in technology cover these items:

    Exoskeleton suits (1925)
    Powered by boiling water which is in a tank on the back of the unit. It weighs exactly 240kg. Due to how heavy it is, it is used as a distraction, a dummy.
    The subject wearing the suit will be equipped with a heavy weapon such as a machine gun. While it is suppressing fire, squads can move in undetected and take out the enemy.
    The suits’ heat grows rapidly so recommended use of time is 10 minutes. Subjects who have used suits longer than 10 minutes have had the following side effects:
    -Hypothermia (15 minutes of use)
    -Dehydration (20 minutes of use)
    -First degree burns (30 minutes of use)
    Unknown effects beyond 30 minutes of use. Hypothesis’ suggest burns intensify.

    Heat-seeking missiles. (1923)
    Weights 50kg and has a radius of 100 meters. Explosive radius is 10 feet in all directions.
    Recommended use: Anti-infantry
    Note: Missiles aim at the hottest thing it can see ahead of it within 100 meters.
    Due to light weight, not much water is incorporated into the missile and is relatively slow, travelling at 5km/hr. The initiated fire sends it 10 meters in the air then it activates and flies at it’s closest, hottest target.
    Detonation is precisely .03 seconds after impact with target.
    WARNING: DO NOT FIRE BEHIND FRIENDLY TROOPS!

    Combat Drones. (1930)
    Developed by Joseph Mckensy and his private team of scientist and granted to the King of Sinew for the greater good of the Empire and His Majesty, the first Combat Drone to replace the trooper has been developed.
    Remotely controlled or programmed, these droids can kill by the hundreds and only be damaged by dents and explosives.
    Equipped with assault rifles, 8 rockets with explosive radius of 5 feet in all directions, it is an effective tool against any threat.
    Once decommissioned in combat they will immediately detonate. I cannot stress how much you must keep the drones separate from one another for the event when one is shot down it will blow up and destroy everything around it.
    It’s tank is filled with six hours worth of water which makes it limited to only one fourth of a day’s work until it shuts down and self destructs, lest the enemy captures one.

    1940 - The first rebellion outbreak recorded since the takeover of Sinew.

    In the Economical Section of Sinew, trouble is brewing. The citizens feel the Six Kings are evil and create more evil. They rebel because they want their King back or because of the Nuclear Incident and there is also the remnants of Kel’Rum who side with the rebels. Will the rebellion tremble from it’s own disagreements between the King and Kel’Rum, will The Six Kings’ empire destroy them or will the rebels find a truce and attempt to overthrow the Six Kings?

    1900 - The First of the six future leaders were born.

    The warm prospering and thanking eve of July 29, 1900 was a joyful one for the Quinn family. They bore a son, naming him Phillip in their tears of happiness, unknown that he will be one of the six world leaders in 42 years.
    In the small town of Chite, he and four others of the future world leaders were born in the next few years. They all grew up together and had many adventures together.

    1936 - The organisation known as The Six Kings is officially formed. Shortly after forming the organisation, their first action was to launch the worlds first Nuclear Steam Missile. (NSM)

    There was much turbulence in the politics in this time. The Six Kings were seen as heroes and their growing military was seen as a threat. They grew tired of the politics and blew up the assembly chamber in 1938 while there was a meeting on, killing the King, his family and every political party that attended the meeting. Those who were not at the meeting were hunted down and assassinated. The Six Kings declared themselves the new world leaders, each taking a region of the world for themselves.
    In 1942 they met a man called Colonel Hans Kriskoff and offered him a position in their organisation. It took much persuasion but he eventually submitted to their whim to crush any rebellions.

    1944 - Organisation The Six Kings has total world domination.
