They had been called many names before; Demons. Angels. Gods and Seraphs. Yes, under many aliases and titles they lived and operated in their daily lives. However, despite all of their titles; no matter the acrimony or praise, they had always known themselves to be one thing:
The Children of the Ex Machina.
The Children of the Ex Machina possessed blood passed down from generations; linking them to a bond closer than siblings. They possessed abilities that linked them to a higher existence; their very lineage setting a course for transcended existence. They were strong, capable, superhuman...
Yet, they were weak.
For you see, the Children of the Ex Machina were just as your average human; albeit, much more capable. They did not do battle themselves. No, these great beings relied on much more powerful; extensively more mysterious entities to deal with their bouts.
The Deus; creatures of the Forbidden Realm with powers that transcended all understanding, whose background varied in number as the stars in space. The Deus are sworn to follow their master's orders to the very end. Many of the Deus are loyal and kind; following this ingrained need to fulfill their master's wishes. Others were not as willing. Their personalities, abilities, levels of power, and all else completely varied.
The Children of the Ex Machina all lived among one another as siblings; peaceful and blissfully unaware of the suffering of mortal coils. Each held different views, but lived happily under the same sky.
It was only when they grew aware of their conflicting views that warfare broke out. For you see, not even beings transcending man themselves could deny the temptation of absolute power and dominance. They fought for the top, never stopping or faltering.
For over 5,000 years; this had been the cycle.
Now, the power of the Ex Machina has become a sport. Those with the power of the Ex Machina compete against one another in underground contests. These contests were formed and funded by hundreds of shadowy organizations; unknown even the the highest of participants.
Now, as of today; those who have the power of the Children of the Ex Machina were known by a much more colloquial term.
There have been multiple attempts to sabotage the game of Ex Machina, all failing. However, there is a new disturbance in the game that will threaten not only the stability of the sport; but the lives of the Summoners. All marked with the brand of the Ex Machina are threatened by this mysterious force.
How will you deal with this threat? Where do you stand in the world of Summoners?
