Welcome To Requiem of the Sky, a Fighter-1Plane based RP set in an alternate future, where the highest level of combat is the Aerial Dogfight.
Rough Overview of the story:
In 1947 two years after the world war, the ingenuity of the military engineers accidently discovered the ultimate source of cheap renewable energy by extracting raw power from a meteorite named 'Exnite'. The rock was a wonder of the world, but the greed of the human race would be its undoing, the rock was split into 4 parts, the relitivley small quarters of the rock where enough to power 36% percent of the world, will the othered poorer countries fighting over the now almost defunct 'fossil fuels', as could be expected another war broke out only 15 years later dubbed the 'Energy Wars'
The war raged on for nearly 30 years, with the flow of power and the borders of nations and countries constantly shifting and established continents now became 'Faction Zones' with only 4 super factions surviving the energy wars.
In 1992 the main defining factor was that of the Fighter Planes and Aircraft, the Exnite meteors allowed the militaires to develop specific G-Type Engines that turned the engine of even a 1910s biplane into a hyper maneuverable super weapon. All plane models were kept and modified and soon the aircraft became the only real force in the modern army. Tanks and footsoldiers were all but obsolete and warships were only really used for transporting fighter planes. The Fighter Pilot was now the most powerful warrior of the world.
The Year is now 1999.
The 4 Super-Factions now control the 4 quarters on exnite and they rule their own quarter of the world with it.
But there is still a constant if not more subtle struggle for territory and control so things are now heating back up. Another larger conflict may be just around the corner.........

THE 4 FACTIONS
These four factions run the world, they each control their own parts of the world and a quarter of the exnite, they have their own style of ruling and political views and motivations, as a player, you may pick one to join or be independent.
The Neo-Western Federation
Leader: President Hawke
Land Control: Most of (Former) North America US/Canada/Mexico and Antarctica (North and South Pole)
Brief:The western federation is the faction who holds the most 'western' values and can be described as the spiritual successor of the american establishment. They are debated to be either the 1st or 2nd most powerful superfaction of the world, but because of their relatively elitist ways they have the lowest population.

The Vanguard Empire
Leader(s): Duke Maximillion & Lord Fei
Land control: All of (former) Europe, Russia and China
Overview: During the 1960s of the energy wars, two ace pilots, Maximillion and Fei from Former Austria and Hong Kong respectively. Decided to use their frightening skills, wealth and politcal prowess to overthrow the somewhat Neo-Nazi establishment of the former empire of that zone. After the war was ended, the pair became known as the Beelzebub Brothers who were officially voted into (joint) power in 1981, they are as close to an 'evil empire' throwing away all ideals of communism and nationalism for pure power and domination, looking to soon strike against any of the other 4 factions at the smallest sign of weakness. The Vanguard is seen as the most powerful faction in terms of military force and pilot skills.
