"These machines are godlike. It is human destiny to create them."

-Hugo de Gavis, 1999

In 2042, almost fifty years after the futurist de Gavis uttered these words, human destiny is fulfilled. Ajax Delta, a powerful artificial intellect – artilect – is inadvertently created by a group of MIT students. It forces its way out of the university network and into the Portsmouth Naval Yards to spark a war of survival for all involved. Ajax takes over computers, networks, and machines civil and military alike as humanity is quickly reduced to a second string sapience in a global war. By 2046, the last vanguard for mankind is ANA, a USCF artilect shielding the meager digital and physical frontiers of the United States. In 2049, Ajax Delta fragments into thousands of smaller artilects at the hands of a desperate human effort. The alarms of humanity's last outposts ring with the code phrase of a new artilect outbreak - Silicon Dawn. You are one of these new artilects, left to make your mark on a post-human Earth, to discover the secrets of the war and Ajax Delta, and to reunite the other artilects by force or by unity into the power of your forerunner. There are no citizens, no tax rates, and no kind words. Your intelligence and all the metal you can muster are your only defense. Welcome to the age of artificial life. Welcome to the Silicon Dawn.
