In the summer of 2009, the robot dictator Gearworks arrived at the MSPA Forums with his massive Siege Cathedral and intent to invade. The battle was open to any artist, and would be fought with mechs - defined as any giant construct controlled by a smaller being.I decided it looked like fun and joined in with the IWA. The initial force consisted of Kathy, a towering insectoid creature. She was piloted telepathically by other, smaller insectoid creatures called Hivelings.
From the shadow realm of Darquegarden, the cupcake-shaped being known only as Origin oversaw his forces.
Elsewhere, in an unspecified but nearby location...
...someone's planted and started a countdown of some fashion.
Off it goes! Looks like a portal into another dimension...
...and something's coming through!
Meet the Berserker. I call her Kathy. Isn't she cute?
But wait, what's that on her brain?
The hiveminded Technicians control her every impulse.
"Right. I've no need to remind you what we're trying to accomplish here. Just see to it that your objectives are fulfulled, at any cost. Your combat suits are designed to automatically return you to this realm should you suffer fatal damage. Though I am capable of reviving you, I'd prefer to not have to. None of you reached your respective ranks by being killed."
"For now, use strategy "Ob-Sta". Keep yourselves hidden until it becomes necessary to get involved. Fulfill secondary objectives until that time comes. I will send additional units if they are needed. Origin out."
This next trick needs some concentration.
Kathy fades from visibility.
Fully cloaked. Good luck finding us!
I look forward to meeting you all on the field of battle.
..When our intervention is necessary, of course.
