• Nobles of Null is a forum based roleplay site where sci-fi and magic collide. Here, Earth remains fractured and divided despite humanity reaching out to the stars. Worse still, the trans-human slaves of one major power have escaped, only to establish their own Empire, seething with resentment at abuses of the past. Even the discovery of aliens, though medieval in development, has failed to rally these squabbling children of Earth together with its far darker implications. Worse still, is the discovery of the impossible - magic. Practiced by the alien locals, nearly depleted and therefore rare, its reality warping abilities remains abstract and distant to the general populace. All the while, unseen in the darkness of space, forces from without threaten to press in. For those with eyes opened by insight, it is clear that an era is about to end, and that a new age will dawn.

AUSPAN - Senate News

The senate of the American Union was a sprawling facility with numerous semi-circular levels filled with desks for senators to sit at. Nearly everyone was in attendance, and votes had just finished being cast.

"Bill 2321-7312dz has passed."

The current president was eager to get infront of the nation once more and advance their agenda.

"Fellow Americans, with the passage of this bill we will provide our military with the funds it needs to save our fellow citizens trapped by the rouge AI in the Hawking System. We-"

There would be a deep rumble, followed by debris falling from the roof as a hole was blasted in the armored glass dome above the senate. Small quad-copter drones would end up swarming in, turning the senate floor into a bloodbath. As guards fired their pistols in the air towards the small drones and senators ran for the nearest door, quadcopters would fly up to senator's heads and explode, splattering the desks and walls with grey matter. The AUSPAN video feed would show all of this in great detail for nearly a minute before the feed was finally cut.

Throughout the American Union a massive distributed attack was taking place. 3d printers setup in rented apartments were churning out small drones that were now being sent out into the world. Electronic attacks were being launched against power facilities and other insecure infrastructure. It wasn't just senators finding themselves in trouble. Anyone on the Magnetic Assembly's list would suddenly find themselves being visited by the killer drones. Anyone who voted for the spending bill, hawkish voices in the media, ISOC command staff aboard space colonies, even soldiers as far away as New Texas. The power outages would follow within seconds as power facilities started to fail. Fires would begin to flare at refineries throughout the Solar System. Automated transports would start to smash themselves into other vehicles along major transport routes.

Within minutes, a media blackout had been imposed as the emergency broadcasting system shut off public news feeds....
