    welcome_home.png

    home
    Most people believe home is where the heart is, a comfy place safe from the outside. Where you are, home is just a shelter where you keep your stuff, assigned to you as soon as you walk off the bus. Home is just an overused connotation for shelter, attempting to invoke good feelings. There are no good feelings after war, especially if you have just lost and your future is unsure. Our Benefactors assign citizens shelters for their protection, not their feelings.

    remember_the_lost.png
    lost
    Much was lost during and after the wars. Lives, freedom, property, everything normal was either destroyed, removed, or changed by our Benefactors. Purpose was lost from people's lives, except for those who work for or resist the Combine. It all now revolves around the Combine, every choice made influenced by the mere presence of the Universal Union. Life before the Combine is clearly lost.

    respect_the_authority.png

    authority
    Following the rules is necessary. You do something not in the interest of the Union, you will be forgotten. Urban Protection Teams roam the streets, mainly consisting of volunteers wishing for a purpose after the war. Joining the UPT grants extra privileges, but unless your best interest is upholding the Universal Union's standards, don't expect to get far. Protection Teams operate with squads of up to six units, with one unit being a Squad Leader. All units have the ability to earn certifications in things like medical, interrogation, and engineering. Squad Leaders receive their orders from the Commander, who cooperates with the military AI Dispatch to uphold the Union and enforce the standards instituted by our Benefactors.

    resistance_is_irrelevant.png

    resistance
    Humanity lost the war. They couldn't break the Combine offensive, and are now suffering for it. Those who are stubborn, who can't accept the fact that they lost now still try to fight our Benefactors. But none of this matters, for the Combine has already won, and is stronger than anything humanity can muster by itself. The battle and war are over, and there is only one victor, and no resistance can change that.

    give_a_helping_hand.png

    helping
    Earth no longer is a perfect haven for humans. Before the war, portal storms transported the fleeing races of Xen to Earth, introducing multiple invasive species to the ecosystems of Earth. From innocent chumtoads to menacing bullsquids, Xenian creatures imbalanced Earth, making it a much harder place to live. Trying to make it by alone is near impossible, so many live together, providing for each other. People also established markets, selling goods to both help themselves and others. Many resistance cells also attempt to provide for their fellow humans, but are distracted by their futile efforts at hurting our Benefactors.

    accidents_happen.png

    accidents
    They happen. Our Benefactors understand this, and they compensate for it. The Union offers a variety of services to help when accidents happen, and to provide for basic needs. Citizens are also asked to help each other out when things happen by referring those involved to a Union sponsored service center, where citizens can spend earned tokens on goods and services provided or sponsored by our Benefactors. Our Benefactors also aren't dumb, and if those involved in multiple "accidents," then the Union will take action, making sure anyone who is detrimental to society is taken care of.

    pests_love_flesh.png

    pests
    Aliens are an everyday threat, and regularly feast on their prey, usually humans. Anywhere not regulated by the Union or patrolled by the UPT is a habitat for pests native or foreign. More natural pests like rats, wasps, and termites can be found in urban centers, living with the citizens of our Benefactors. Xenian creatures inhabit places not cared for by the Union, attacking anyone who invades their space. Citizens are asked to attend extermination runs, helping to clear urban centers from the threats these pests are, which in turn helps them serve the Union and our Benefactors.

    unification
    Unification-Networks provides players an experience in a time that we hope to be new and exciting: the first few weeks after the Seven Hour War. With a staff team that includes members with several years of experience in hosting, managing, administering, and most importantly roleplaying in CW:HL2RP servers, Unification-Networks gives players a server with a staff team that knows what they are doing. Currently, we are using a few custom plugins, and also have a well-developed server lore. We have plans to also include some elements of HL2 Beta lore and parts of HL2 lore that were either mentioned or aren't seen in the actual game, like Xen species from the first Half-Life.

    Because of the setting of our server, life will be more of a struggle than in normal CityRP. Resources will be low because of the war, requiring citizens to work for their food and water. New units in the Urban Protection Teams will force moral dilemmas, as they are unaugmented and will not receive brainwashing (as of now, could change depending on community opinion or other actions taken). Our units also are not structured by division, but instead squads as described in the section authority. We are trying to setup an environment where decisions made by the players will affect the direction of the server, its setting, and its plot. With a city stat system, you can directly influence roleplay through cleaning the streets are causing damage. Your story is the servers story. You have the power to develop your character the way you want, and in the end your persona will have an everlasting effect on the server.

    We are going to be doing a stress test before we officially open the server. This will also serve as a mini event to introduce players to the server and it's story. If anyone is interested please PM @TacticalToaster or myself.
