Before there was Man; before there was Earth; before there was PLANET
MOON; there was the Island: a massive fragment of shattered planet
hurtling through space. One would immediately think, asteroid, at such a
description, but this is by no means a dead piece of rock. Even from a
distance its radiant colors and surrounding waterfalls distinguish it as an
anomaly amidst the dark void of space. Around it, decayed and splintered
asteroids linger, like wailful ghosts, jealous of a true beauty they will never

On this Eden wanders the solitary giant, Kabuto. As far back as he can
remember this has been his home. From whence he came he does not know,
apart from one obscure clue in the form of the serial number, "001,"
imprinted on his stomach. He sits alone and longs for company, but the only
thing that has descended from the skies, or landed upon the shores is
death and destruction. He now trusts no one, and guards the only thing
that has been constant for him -- the island, his home. And woe betide
anyone who now sets foot on it! 

In the surrounding seas there are a band of survivors called the Sea
Reapers. These women once ruled the island until they were forced to flee
by their own creation: Kabuto. He had originally been created as a
protector against alien threats. At first Kabuto obeyed, but as time went by
he became conscious of his pain, his loneliness, himself. His solitude drove
him to madness, and he turned on the Sea Reapers, decimating their
numbers, and forcing the remainder back to their watery origins. Out of this
weakness arose a new leader, the Sea Reaper Queen. 

Badly damaged from their latest battle in space, the Meccaryn spaceship
limps toward the closest landmass capable of supporting life, the Island.
From orbit they scan for any possible threat. There is none, for on this
chunk of large but beautiful rock there exists only the most primitive of life
forms. Perfect! Time for repairs. Taking to their landing crafts they begin
their descent into a world that holds their only chance of survival and,
unbeknownst to them, a place where they will face Hell itself. Now, don't
let their slight frame fool you. Once encased in their large body armor they
are ready for anything or, at least, feel they are. They love a fight, and
over time have learnt how to best protect themselves when going up
against the ethereal sea-women, or that rather large giant who dominates
the Island. They must travel in numbers and watch their backs. This
teamwork has been the key to their survival, allowing them to hunt for their
much-needed fuel and resources. 

The conflict takes place on an exotic world hidden in the heart of a vast

The Sea Reapers, the Meccaryn, and the Giant Kabuto, are fighting for
control of the world for very different reasons. 

Kabuto, created by the Sea Reapers to defeat the Meccaryns, has gained
his freedom. 

He now fights to control the island and retain his independence. 

The Sea Reapers, once the dominant race, have escaped to the seas to
retake their home from the invading Meccaryns and great Kabuto. 

The Meccaryns, a space-faring race, are in need of a strategic place to
complete repairs on their vehicles and desire not to share the land.
