Mother scraped together the people around her after the Pandora pandemic swept the world and together they built Newton. Now five years later, Newton has grown not only in size, but in fame. And while Mother gained supporters all over the continent, she also called the attention of the army, who sees her as a traitor. She always knew that one day, the soldiers would come. Will she be ready? More
In the wake of the Pandora pandemic, Newton began. With Mother at the helm, it grew and blossomed. Her policy of open doors and shared information benefited not only those in town, but people across the continent. As her fame grew, she attracted the attention of what remained of the US army. They moved in next door, built a base, and for years, seemed content to simply watch her.
However, Mother would not follow the army's "supply and comply" policy. They were soldiers trying to give her orders, not government officials, and the more the soldiers pressed their case, the more firm Mother's resolve became. She did not vote them into office, she did not elect any of them to be her leader. The people she voted for were dead and buried, and until she cast a vote for someone new, there was no government. She refused to cede Newton to their control, and encouraged other towns and settlements across the former nation to do the same.
To the army, Mother is a traitor. The time has come that her people feared. With one defiant act, Mother tips the scale too far and the world at large knows things are coming to a head. The army is no longer content to wait and watch. And as she prepares her citizens for battle, Mother knows that far more than just one town is on the line.
