The year is 1999. A small group of N-Siders have survived the apocalypse. Out of a bazillion N-Siders, only a few remain. At first, these N-Siders attempt to work together to rebuild their civilization at the Game Pond. But, as time goes on, bickering and feuding begins over whose fault it was that N-Sider closed, and they divide into 4 main factions: The Nostalgia Gamers, RPG Freaks, The N64 Freaks, and the Lamers. There are a few who don't really fit into any of those groups, and you can attempt to lure or bribe them into joining your group before they join another one, or just leave the Game Pond altogether. This game is a strategy war-far game, similar to Starcraft. The object is to take over the game pond. Each faction has its own strengths and weaknesses:
Nostalgia Gamers: Their strength lies in their humongous words and tech-talk no one else understands. They use this to confuse the enemy and cause chaos. They also use this knowledge to build better weaponry. Their weakness: There's not that many of them, and they're mostly old geezers, easy to take down.
RPG Freaks: These are the loudest of the four factions. Their strength lies in their numbers, and the fact that they are so loud, they can knock walls down just by screaming. Their weakness is, they usually sound pretty stupid, and therefore, easily outsmarted. Their bark is worse than their bite.
The N64 Freaks: Possibly the strongest of the four factions, they have tough warriors, like Pero and Deathspork. They have a lot of battle experience from years of sticking up for the system that gets more criticism than Bill Clinton on Ladies Night. Their weakness is that they tend to overheat in an argument and explode (ie, Pero and James FP).
The Lamers: This group consists of people like Peace and Quiet, Polar Kraken, and GH64, and is led by Thawhidol. They are bandits who just like picking fights with anybody and everybody. However all they can fight back with is relatively weak spam and insults, so they can easily be squashed by any army. If you play as this group, you'll have a tough time winning.
You start out conquering different forums. When you conquer a forum, you can either leave it the way it is, delete it, or rename it, or decide who can post there and who can't. If an opposing faction conquers a forum, you can attempt to take it from them by battling them.
By defeating a Mod or Admin, you win Moderator and Admin control. (Mods and Admins are like Captains and Generals). You can delete and ban people, or delete and edit posts, which is like destroying a base. You can spam someone else's forum. You can insult people and their N-Sider boards. You can attempt to overthrow the admin (like Thawhidol). The possibilities are endless! If you gain Admin control, you can delete someone else's forum, but remember, your opponents can do the same to you! You can create new forums! You could even secretly create your own private ezboard, and build up a secret army by going around to other ezboards and asking people to join, or messaging old friends from N-Sider. The Game ends when only one faction remains! You must be a madman not to want this game!
