Chapter 1
Caves of Steel

The year was 6538 UTS when the global power break down happened. These blackouts were becoming usual by that time, but never before at this scale. Suddenly, for the first time in many years, the social status ceased to matter: everyone, whether it being the rich and lunatic upper class or the poor and delusional lower class, lived for two days without energy.

Population number was at its height even though the mean standard of living was at its lowest. On one side there were the few educated members that tried to sustain the planet’s resource productions. “The gifted”, as they were called. However, there were also the useless and unintelligent citizens in massive numbers. A global power breakdown was inevitable, at least in the minds of the most gifted members of the planet. There were just too many individuals consuming resources. The rich wasted them. The poor didn’t, but their numbers were so massive that they totally eclipsed the consumptions of the rich.

Perhaps living in the dark triggered something very special in the minds of the planet’s inhabitants. As they say “an idle mind is the devil's workshop”. Questions and thoughts began to arise among every citizen from every class from all over the planet. Perhaps this meant the dawn of a new era.
