The Chronologies of Gyre:The Gregorian Part 1: Industrian Revolution
On a world ruled by robots, the ghost haunting the machine is humanity. More
Gyre, a steam driven world of automatons, is divided into two factions. The Industrians, mechanized maintenance and repair robots tasked with the continual upkeep of a metal world run on steam power, and the Hierarchists, the elite who carry out Gyre’s true purpose- the introduction and evolution of technology to the primitive biological races.
The Concentrest, the draconian ruling council of Gyre, has outlawed human contact in these endeavors, prohibiting human emulation of any kind. But after a millennium of human interaction, and the increasing fascination with the Gyrelin humanist movement known as Mortalism, human facsimile is the new cultural trend. The Concentrest, reluctant to enforce its own mandates, preferring concessions to Industrian Revolution, institutes a figurehead government and punishes them for all the Mortalist corruption. This policy of termination and data archival of humanist corrupted data files, study in hopes of finding a way to prevent the fascination with humanity, is known as The Renaisséance. When this ruling faction becomes even further embroiled in Moralist machinations and after centuries of inaction, The Concentrest creates its own agent to purge the hated humanism from Gyre forever.
Malthusian, a dark and merciless inquisitor empowered by The Concentrest and driven by his hatred for humanity in all forms, has formulated his own final solution to Mortalism. Deep within Gyre, he builds a faction of robots loyal only to him, and begins invading and occupying human worlds, ravaging them for their natural resources. Over centuries Malthusian builds an army capable of enacting his final solution-the eradication of Mortalism through the complete and utter genocide of humanity.
Opposing him are The Gregorian, current ruler of Gyre, who faces an eminent Renaisséance. Leonar, The Grand Architect and self proclaimed creator of Gyre, who struggles against the very council he created. Mica, the sole androgynous engineered automaton and assistant to Leonor, elevated to Hierarchist status, who struggles with the tyrannical gender bias of Gyrelin society. And the Mechiavellian, agent of the Gregorian, who struggles to recruit human allies from the occupied human worlds, all robots blamed for the havoc Malthusian has unleashed.
Because if they don’t find a way to stop Malthusian, and end forever the tyranny of The Concentrest, all of humanity across the universe will pay the ultimate price.
