INTRODUCTION Hello everyone, I am Scorpion W2 and I am hosting a server with the aid and sponsorship of Upsilon Networks. Half-Life 2 Leak Roleplay This roleplay schema will be based around the events of the alternative timeline of Half-Life 2 with a darker, grittier, and more surreal story. A little about myself, I am a veteran of the Half-Life 2 Roleplay community since the introduction of the Nexus schema. I want to ensure that players will have the best roleplaying experience without the hassle of bias, "business", and grinding-MMO style gameplay. My goal is both fun and serious roleplay that will cater to all parties within the Half-Life 2 universe. I hope that everybody will get an opportunity to try out our server and be a member of the community. We are planning for a release demonstration on the 24th of June with the full release of the server on the 28th of June. Stay Tuned for any updates!

The Combine Empire utilizing the Portal Storm's bridge of access have successfully invaded and occupied Earth. The Combine's numerous synthetic and organic forces engaged the world's militaries and quickly outmatched their speed, ferocity, and technological advantage. The leaders of the Earth forged an uneasy treaty not long after to save the remaining human lives left all over the planet. It was agreed in this treaty that humanity will be spared in exchange for the planet's natural resources and eventual terraforming for the true "hosts". The creator of this pact with the Combine was dubbed "The Consul", a late-aged political figure who once ran the former satellite nation known as Ukraine. Not much is known about the Consul as he is never seen in the public eye with the exception for his appearance in broadcasts, telescreens, posters and various other types of propaganda over the newly-established urban centers of the world. Even with the war's end, The Combine continues to fight the disparate fragments of the Earth's many militaries as well as the remnants of Xen. The Earth's atmosphere becomes darkened and plagued with pollution as facilities dubbed "AirEx" are erected in secret to alter the world's climate for terraforming. Fringe elements of rebels and criminals have begun surfacing all over the centers as the deterioration of life and liberty begin taking its toll on the populations of Earth. The Civil Protection governed by the Consul are established to restore order to civilised society. Citizens volunteer to police their urban centers in exchange for family safety and comfort. Captain Augustus Vance commands the Earth's conscripted military to guard the Combine's deepest secret. Although, it is said that other motives may be present to his endeavor. The fate of the world is at a standstill. You step off the rickety steps from your wooden hut and glance above at the distant alien tower that touches the scorched sky. Transition is coming soon, you know it wouldn't be long until the Combine relocate you to City Seventeen. Will it be any better than this..? This is your life; your choices will have consequences and who you will side with will determine the outcome of the world... SYNOPSIS Currently at the beginning weeks of the server's start. We will be outlining events of the "Wasteland" outside of City Seventeen. This will guarantee players the opportunity for freedom, exploration, and familiarizing before the transition to the City. Our loremaster has established events and scenarios to ensure a reputable storyline conducive to the Leak. If you would like to know more about the Wasteland and the lore surrounding it, here is the link to our lore: https://upsilon.network/forums/index.php?threads/wasteland-la-platz-lore-mega-thread.450/ The main firefight action for this server is primarily S2W/S2RP. S2K can be implemented at the discretion of the server administer. FACTIONS Citizen & Denizens The citizens and denizens are the last remaining humans on Earth that survived the "Seven Hour War" and the current Combine Occupation. They range from a variety of characters, affiliations, and ethnicities from all over the world. They work to ensure the sustainment of their urban centers or they forcibly rebel the occupation. Citizens will have the opportunities for a variety of positions, occupations, organizations, etc. Citizens are held accountable under a Union Court ruling system while living within the urban center. Civil Laborers The Civil Laborers is an organization of three separate divisions that ensure the proper life-support for every urban center. The three divisions are Fabrication, Requisitions, and Documents. Fabrication: Responsible for the construction, dismantling, and disposal of all materials in the city and wasteland. Requisitions: Responsible for the production and management of all business-oriented ventures for the citizens. Documents: Responsible to serve as the public arbiters for the citizens in the Union Court as well as ensuring proper documentation of all Civil Laborer events. Civil Protection The Civil Protection is the main policing and security organization of every urban center. They are responsible in ensuring the protection of "civilised society" and prosecuting violators of that sanctum. The Civil Protection will be split into two roles: Patrolling and Presence of the City Prosecution of Citizens and Members of the Union under the Union Court system. The UNION Court system is a unique link to allow citizens to effectively defend themselves in a trial with the help of a public arbiter. The highest-ranking Civil Protection officer or Laborer will adjudicate the system and determine the factor of fate to the defendant.

Conscripts makeup the bulk ground-force of the Combine alongside the support of mechanical and synthetic air support and artillery. They are led by Captain Augustus Vance who commands the City Seventeen sector of Conscripts. They are the first generation of soldiers "subsequent" progression to a new breed of military fighters that are still under development.
