Chapter 1 - The Beginning
Today I come to you with terrible news. Our island as we know it, Malden, has been destroyed by unfathomable nuclear weapons from an enemy, we do not know who. Our homes, our families, our lively hood... gone before our eyes. I stand here, dismayed, a survivor on the edge of the island watching as it all turns to dust. Shielding my face from the blinding light and blistering hot blast. Everything I once knew is gone. Everyone I now know is gone. The island is destroyed, the radiation kills in minutes. Those lucky enough to be on the edges may only have so many years left...
Our new home for us is a place called Altis. Our ancestors lived there but were forced to flee due to famine. With any luck when we arrive, the ground will be fertile ready for us new settlers to start again. We will rebuild but we will do it better this time. Each one of us will contribute to create a thriving life for us, and our children. But we will never forget the pain this moment in history has bestowed upon us..
I wish I could tell you all that we can move on. But I can not tell you this. Many of us have gone missing since the blast and this enemy, who ever they are will not likely leave us to flea. They will follow us and we must be on guard watching for the next threat. We will rebuild. We will survive. Do not let them win.
P.S. Our boats will arrive soon, I can see the mountains on the horizon.

This time around we are attempting to integrate a story about Altis. You have already been given chapter 1 above which is more of reason for the return to Altis and some foreshadowing. Each of the stories will signify some situation that has happened or about to happen. Some of these chapters will reflect in-game changes. You may find yourself logging on one day and noticing a lot of different things, which means you should check the forums for a story and community wide objectives! Moving on, there are many plans for Altis and at this point we will work on them and try to get them to the player base in a fully functional state.
Additionally the current admins will be enforcing some different rules than you may be used to, so be sure to read the rules when we launch Altis.
