DORMANT DEATH Formed in the wake of World War I, a renegade secret society has never lost sight of its goal to eradicate the "lesser races" and restore a mythical paradise.

This night was no different than any other winters night. It was raining hard and the sound of the breakers hitting the beach made everything seem normal. Tonight wasn’t going to be like every other night though, It was going to be the first night in a series of events that would drag himself as well as his close friend Dan Carline into a fight for survival against a force of extraterrestrial invaders that had plans to colonize his world.
They would be happy to have left the entire task to the New Zealand Defense Forces, but circumstances forced them both out of retirement to wage a private war against the invaders while what remained of the military tried to reorganize themselves after being devastated by Pearl harbor styled attacks in the initial first hours of the invaders arriving.
Trained in Guerilla style warfare, both Ferris and Carline felt right at home, hitting at the invading force, then backing away, only to return and strike again. With each successive strike, they learned more about the Aliens capabilities, their strengths and their weaknesses. Gathering this information and using it to strike harder and harass the Invaders.

Finding a way to do that bought them a new set of problems, in the form of the local outcasts and gangs that had formed an uneasy alliance with the invaders who had promised them power and wealth, in return for their help in exterminating any resistance.
