Continued below...
It is 95 years after the first Syndicates fought for control. An oppressive peace has reigned but the controlling Syndicate, EuroCorp, hasn't been idle. As well as upgrading the computer control Chips embedded in peoples' brains, they set up a research team to find out how they can utilise more of the brains they control.
Based in Reykjavik, Iceland, for the purposes of secrecy, C3 (the Cybernetic Cognition Conference) started as a group of ten top scientists carrying out experiments into mind-expansion. If anything, they were too successful. By trying their newly-acquired mental enhancement technology, nine of the ten C3 members drove themselves insane. Nevertheless, they saw the repression of the Syndicate who funded them and decided to counter it by setting up the Church of the New Epoch. Only one member of the C3 resisted the madness of total understanding. Alone he left C3. He is called Ko-Paull Vissick.
The Nine, as they are now called, became determined to overthrow the EuroCorp Syndicate by recruiting people to their new religion. Their thinking was so advanced that they compiled it into a large document called the Codex, along with theoretical designs for an entirely new system of weapons, far in advance of anything EuroCorp possessed.
The first thing The Nine's Church did was to introduce a computer virus into the Utopia global control network which the Syndicate uses to 'guide' the population. Chips failed in droves, and suddenly the masses saw the world for what it was. The Nine were there, ready to snap them up into the Church of the New Epoch. Their Indoctrinators, the Church version of the Persuadertron, were virtually overheating with the numbers of new converts they were attracting.
Thus begins the war for the minds of the Global Asylum Earth. The Church are arming their disciples with ever more advanced weaponry and the Syndicate is fighting back with highly-trained troops and upgraded vehicles, weapons, and strategies of their own. The Syndicate simply wants to restore order but the Nine, being clinically insane, have a master plan...
And what of Vissick, the tenth member of the C3? He knows what the Church is planning and he's aware of the approaching Cataclysm. But he's no fan of EuroCorp, so he won't throw in his lot with them. In fact, he's leading a group of free-thinkers to their own destiny. Known as The Unguided, they have their own ideas about the future of the planet and they, too, are willing to fight to the death for them. So here you stand, on the brink of a New Epoch. Which side will you take? Do you think you have a chance of winning? The Syndicate Wars have begun.
