The Big Mistake

It all started so silently nobody really noticed. Ozone depletion allowed unfiltered solar radiation to “sunburn the ocean” killing the phytoplankton that lives within the top few meters of its surface. It was a classic collapse of a food chain. The little fish that ate plankton died, and then the bigger fish that ate the little fish died, and a horrified world watched as the oceans died. And then the atmosphere began to collapse and, as the planet erupted into wars over the remaining resources, the environmental disaster we had brought upon ourselves came to be known as The Big Mistake. Even our own technological prowess became a handicap. Our scientists had unlocked the secret to plasma formation—the ability to materialize solid constructions out of thin air. Constructed over plasma-rich geopockets all over the globe, advanced technology research centers were used to develop military technology of all sorts (ground tanks, air fighters, buildings, to name a few) that could instantly appear at a commander's whim. But this magic had a high price. Everyone wanted this technology, and soon the fragile political alliances and systems that had so narrowly averted global war for three centuries came to a crumbling end. The technology was dispersed into enemy hands, and the world became a multipolar warring hotbed once again. And as if we weren’t doing enough to ruin Earth, the Mykonians launched their energy-sucking Parasite Machine to give us a helping hand.
