a story for 2015...maybe in the 2015 SCC Anthology
Luckily, the outliers and survivalists had forged an alliance that the level one immortals did not know of. When the upper clan immortals great halls fell, the alliance made an immediate leave. The planet was scorched.
Though the original grafters of the alliance have been spent, their preparation lives on in The Plan.
While post-war earth is being terraformed, various sci stations work on restoration projects such as agri-fusion and husbandry. On Station FV8W5, they are making preparations to be the first seeders bringing back to earth some millions of starters, the micro life necessary for ensuring that the terraforming persists. Beneditto marked this to be the last job for his mech set. This is where the real story starts.
