The game War was the first virtual reality game. Disturbingly cheap it sold to anyone and everyone. Once you are in you can't get out. The Four, leaders of the Enforcers, were the creators. They wanted a world to rule themselves... and they got it. The Valians are the ones who oppose the Enforcers. There is no good and bad, just power.
Then the Lorgs came and the governments were forced to merge. The Lorgs were dumb savages at first but they began to evolve...
But when Lord Bitte lied to the citizens of the world, some of the Valians and others were angry and seceded from the truce, forming the VLA.
The Lorgs then asked the Enforcers to sign a truce. Lord Bitte sent his greatest general, Shockwave, to go to the Lorgs.
Before the mission was accomplished, Lord Bitte made him his equal.
But Shockwave turned on his former master, and he declared that the Lorgs would protect him.
Little did anyone know that Lord Bitte was actually the Lorg King!
Alliances were demolished, but still stood, and it came down to living alongside the Lorgs and their master, or death.
But in truth there was another way to survive, but they would have to figure that out themselves if they did not join the Lorgs.
