An Aborted Invasion in Hallifax
Alarms rang out across the frosted platforms of Hallifax as strange anomalies manifested across the cold streets. Hordes of shambling zombies stepped from these to attack citizens in the streets. The citizens searched in vain for the source of the undead plague. In a blaring of sirens and an artificial voice of stern gemwork, the Primary Generator alerted the city to the reanimated flesh.
After waves of zombies came a swarm of undead cave fishers. All the while, the Primary Generator provided announcements that became, over time, more commands than guidance to the besieged citizens. The citizens battled the invaders at the very Matrix, and the voice of Kesisha, First of the Time Dames echoed over the city aether, revealing confused details of a plan to breach the temporal defenses of Hallifax.
Waves of temporal energy washed across the beleagured forces, displacing the citizens and their allies as fires raged across the city. Rifts opened around the city, expelling hordes of Dominators onto the platforms of the Beacon of Harmony. The strangeness of the situation only increased as blood turned to alcohol in the veins of those who fought the mysterious invaders.
The Primary Generator gave a final garbled instruction, calling the inebriated citizens to return temporal artifacts carried by the Dominators to the Wheel of the Goloths. A final distorted cry for aid rang out as the Generator went dark, avoiding further damage from the Dominator forces.
In time, the citizens rallied. The Dominators were slain and the temporal rifts sealed, leaving behind only wreckage and unanswered questions.
