The Italian Bastion


Il Terra Di Agea

Deep within the untamed lands, surrounded by all kinds of strange beasts, Leonardo was the minority, Leonardo was human. His life was hard, from time to time, a new monstrosity would come to enslave he and his family, and they had always fought back. Now the shoe was on the other foot, now, the humans were going to strike first, and end on top. Italy once had a rich culture, long since destroyed by flying monsters and giant creatures. He knew, somewhere in his head that it was all futile to fight back, most of the humans had died out long ago. If rumors were to be believed, North America had been cleared out by the dragons, and the few dragons left in Europe seemed easily possible. The problem was the bugs more than the reptiles. Everyone knew the bugs had Sicily as their nest, and were spreading, fast. Leonard looked to the sky, and saw a good sign to move, three or four scarabs in the sky, trying to take out a supply plane... or at least, it looked like one.

It was all part of the plan, bomb the nests, bomb the bug holes, take Italy back one nest at a time. Leonardo looked to the horizon, and saw the thick red shoot to the sky, an the hiss of the bugs across the nests.

Three days passed, and ten more bombs hit the dense regions of the island, and the first teams began to move to the site. The bugs had burrowed down, and with the bombs, the tunnels caved in, leaving the an jutting out in spikes, and covered in the warm, still molten rock beneath...

Two men, not unlike the rest of the scattered Humans began to run out from their camps in Messina, one of the only human held cities left in Italy. They had heard, although from rather unreliable sources, that he was coming. The man of myth and mystery. The one who fought for humans' rights, and slayed the arachnids of Svalbard. The one who's face and flesh were never seen, but his strength and courage could gleam for miles. The two men ran to the edge of town, at the foot of the massive steel walls, and waited among hundreds, all anticipating his arrival.

An alarm began to go off, deafening the people below, and bathing them in orange light. "Something is getting over the walls!"

The soldiers among the citizens lifted their guns into the air, ready to fire at the bug as soon as it got over the spiked edge; What got over the top was not a bug, though, it was their savior...

ooc: CNRPS Superheroes fall under the no-magic policy unless they're heroes like Batman is where it's based on science, technology, wits, and athletics. They also give no geostrategic advantage in any combat. Otherwise, carry on!

Baggs stepped down from his helicopter, at the edge of the former "Hive" lands. Decimated exoskeletons and collapsed hives littered the landscape behind, but before them, lay they're worst nightmare, hive forest.

Much like Baggs himself, hive forest was a thing of legend. A land so dense with bugs, that they create their own terrain, from mountains to trees; Cultivating it to their liking, so they may hunt down anything stupid enough to enter. Baggs stood out on the edge of the deep pit, and yelled out to his people, "We are entering the hive forest. From here on out, you are to wear biohazard suits, as to stop inhalation of the gases, and prevent your smell from escaping. We have fought the Arachnids, and the beetles before, but this is foreign even to me."

"So sir, what should we do?" A soldier said, in a high pitched voice.

"You all, should do nothing," Baggs said as he began to strap a parachute on, "I on the other hand, am going to kill some bugs."

As he finished his final word, he jumped off the side of the massive pit and spread his arms.
