To Whom It Concerns:

The reason you’re receiving this message is because either you expressed interest in joining Dark Blood: Apocalypse Tomorrow or we’re interested in your talents. Contained in this document will be what we’re looking for, what we offer, our storyline and other things relating to development of Dark Blood: Apocalypse Tomorrow.

What is Dark Blood: Apocalypse Tomorrow?

—During the World War 2 era Michael’s father was developing a virus to make super humans. He was working extensively with the Nazi’s. Michaels grew up and learned about his fathers experiments. Over time Michaels started to expand his knowledge in the science world working with very highly respectable companies. Getting a college degree all while secretly forming a terrorist organization called fist of crimson. Michaels started to create the virus called G (1, 2, and 3) which is a virus that feeds and grows off fire and when breathed in eats your insides out, killing you very fast but painfully. Over time Michaels created the G3 virus, his last project. His terrorist organization was one of the biggest and had some of the best military equipment around. The world still had no idea about

Michaels nor his scheme to release the G3 virus worldwide and cause the apocalypse. The United Nations produce a special ops organization of the best of the best around the world to secretly take out Fist of Crimson and prevent the G3 virus

Over time one of the UN Spec Op leads becomes a POW and learns a great deal how the Western World Governments actually help fund and cause the fourth coming apocalypse. After being released instead of being a POW, you become a rebel whose goal is to stop the G3 virus but alert the world of all the lies

So what are we looking for? Well first we’re looking for both males and females. Country isn’t important nor is age but the way you act can be important. This explains why we say we’re looking for professional staff members. In past projects we’ve dealt with the annoying staff members who flame other modifications, have poor spelling and really get on your nerves. Dark Blood isn’t about that. Also we’re looking to keep our team small and simple. If you go to our staff page[color=gray] www.dbmod.com (hit enter then staff) you’ll notice we’re pretty small. And we’ll be downsizing some more. We really don’t want a big team at all.

And that’s only three of our staff members. Dark Blood: Apocalypse Tomorrow has been in production for over a year now. Below I listed some key things we wish to include in the Single Player and Co-Op Modes.

Realism - The mod will feature realistic weaponry, uniforms, sounds and locations. Realism is a definite aim for the game in single player as we wish to emerge the player into the game. But we will also be breaking a few realism boundaries. Which we will state later on. We will be using a hybrid of the iron-sights system for realism and crosshair for newer players to identify with the game (see later for details.) Blood and gore is a huge part of this mod. If you are blown up by a grenade you will actually lose a body part or two, and blood will splatter against the wall, or floor. This is one of the features many can consider not truly realistic but it adds something new to a game. So yes there will be lots of blood and gore. Single Player is also the prequel of our game. It is what happens before the apocalypse and leads directly up to the apocalypse as you watch anarchy break lose.

Diversity – Players will see different missions, objectives and locations. The game will take place in the USA, Europe, Middle Eastern, South America, and many other mainland’s and so a large variety of locations will be used such as Jungle, city, desert, snow, urban etc. This mix allows the player to fight in multiple environments

Environment - The player must fell immersed in the game. The environment of the game must be real to life and make people duck and dodge. This will be achieved though both graphical and audio effects. Almost everything will be destructible. So you could blow apart a building filled with enemies, instead of waiting for the campers to come out. You can knock some tree’s down for instant cover. You can shoot some gas drums and they will explode sending those near to a fire death and those not near the explosion getting smacked by a drum flying at high speeds. Explosions will cause glass to shatter, and cracks to form in the buildings or the buildings to actually collapse.

Unique Storyline - This game has a storyline like a movie. Bizarre twists and so on. In single player you take on the side of United Nations and form an elite group of soldiers from around the world. You first start off getting flown off to an unknown island for training. After that, all hell breaks lose. The storyline has characters you will become familiar to, ironic situations and much more. When your players first start the Single Player Campaign you will build your player first. Selecting his country, name, age, and so on. Then as the story develops you will have the chance to develop and create your squad and watch your team grows. As you get closer to the Apocalypse you will leave behind most military knowledge such as Fire Teams and Squads and start to form a group of random people off the street.

Physics - You get blown away, if you hit a wall, you’ll bounce off it, or perhaps go through the window and shatter it. If you run across the street and step on a mine, you’ll go flying, through the window. When you walk up to a wall, instead of your gun going through the wall, it’ll press up against you. If shot in the head and head only you’ll get dizzy/blurry depending if you’re wearing Kevlar or not.

Characters – All characters will have a name and huge role in the storyline. Your own character that you choose to create to your own liking will interact with other characters and you will start to understand things better. As mentioned before your friends could turn out to be an enemy setting you up. So you’ll always have to be alert to your surroundings and be ready for anything. You will also choose a group of specially trained soldiers that you can customize to fit your missions. As time goes on your team will grow but you can lose members due to death or backstabbing, but also gain members.

Progression Menu – Through out the single player campaign you can open a pop up progressing menu showing where you are, your current objectives, your teams status, weapon/gear selection, and more.

Unique Missions - With new and interesting missions, with some that will surely cause uproar. These include rock climbing missions, scuba diving, patrols, sky diving, parachuting, and even a mission where your plane gets hijacked. Not every mission is all combat though. Some missions you go under disguise and gather Intel. You go form a tactical military game play in jungles, deserts, mountains slowly into a loner mode as the apocalypse approaches. The more you learn the more you break away from the military ways and become a loner and/or start your own faction with other random people you encounter. As you break away from your military roots you start to do more Intel work and follow people around that may lead you to Michaels himself.

Mission Interlinking - With mission interlinking, instead of mission to mission, everything seems like one big world. You have to get to point b any way you can. Car, Truck, Taxi, Stealing stuff, running, plane, whatever. After you get to point B and do the objective, instead of loading to a new mission, it seems like you’re still in the same world (almost like far cry is) You can even go from point a to point c and skip point b. Skipping point b will cause some problems though.

Battle System - You can fight with weapons, objects, fist to fist, or how ever you choose. Knock out a window, pick up some glass and go cutting away. Break a chair and start beating the shit out of people with a leg of a chair.

Worn Down System – You’re fighting a war, and have no access to showers or new clothes. So wouldn’t your clothes and weapons and yourself start to get dirty and raggy? Well of course, so that’s why it’ll show you like that.

No Cut scenes - Mission Interlinking includes no cut scenes. If you have 10seconds to get out of a building, and make it out at 1. Instead of going to a cut scene of the building blowing up, you better keep running because it blows up at 0 wherever you are.

Character Customization - Customize yourself and your squad to country, color, weight, size, weapons, equipment, uniform, etc…

And that’s what we only have planned so far. Dark Blood is also a multi part series.

Well that’s all I have for you to read for now. Hopefully you’ll take some time to read this and perhaps take into consideration we’re serious in your talents and this projects success. We believe your talents can help fuel the team to reach our ultimate goal of a completed project. Working with DOOM III is a great thing as I.D. Software is a great company that supports its modders. They’re releasing a SDK (Software Development Kit) and lots of tutorials. I believe if this project gets done, we could see it on shelves and Project Dark Blood could get picked up by I.D. Software. If you’re interested just make sure you stop by www.dbmod.com and forward any interest you have to me at mrheineken@nova-studios.com

Thanks for taking the time to read this and hopefully you’ll be joining our team shortly.

That’s basically our main staff that been with us for a long time. Remember if you’re interested to drop me a line at bryan@neronnetwork.com !In 1942 the Fuhrer, due to an increasing understanding of genetics thanks to research in Concentration camps, ordered German biologists to start work on a ultra secret project ‘Der Stolz von Darwin’ (The Pride of Darwin) to create the worlds first ‘Super-Man’.

In the beginning they had “promising results” working on fetuses, if you can call it that. Total freaks really, part human, part any-animal-they-could-get-their-hands-on. They were mostly born badly deformed the ones that weren’t often died days after the birth.

The most interesting results (for our story) were made by one scientist Klaus Hackenberg with pregnant mothers. Giving them a virus created using animal DNA. Men and non-pregnant women died in horrendous agony, however 3.7% of the pregnant woman survived gaining seemingly superhuman abilities such as the ability to see more clearly in the dark, extra limbs and tougher skin their survival rate was believed to be something to do with increased hormonal and immunological activates during pregnancy however by 1944 the research facility was flattened by allied bombers and research was finally discontinued. After VE day, Klaus and all his research was snapped up by the US secret service and he was put to work on physical enhancement drugs for US soldiers and his research was put to use in the development of NASA’s space suits.

Klaus married Marie Heart and on the 18th of July 1946 had a son named Michel. Michel had a difficult childhood he was a hyperactive lad born ADHD (Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) and heavily bullied at school. Mostly because of post natal depression due to her being fed up with life as house wife. Marie began drinking heavily she also began to take out her frustrations on her young son beating him badly on the smallest provocation. Klaus was away at work for long periods of time with little time to see Michel. When he did see him he spoilt him rotten feeling guilty for not seeing him. When Michel was old enough to comprehend the world around him he began to favor his farther, his inspiration, and his god.

When Michel was 8 he found an old copy of his fathers Mien Kampf. Along with a few other mementos from the war in the locked draw he was told not go into. He read the book every night under the covers by torch light and then he believed he was beginning to understand. “It was ‘their’ fault you see, the Free People, The Americans, The British, The Jews, they bullied me and they’re scared of me they can smell it you see, my superior Aryan ancestry…”

Through High School Michel was a loner, finding it difficult to fined friends immediately after graduation he joined the US Army despite going to jail for beating up a black cadet he was soon in a command position, not long before being sent to Vietnam province. Where he was described as “somewhat fanatical” also there were reports of him single handedly wiping out an entire village, committing rape and shooting a Jewish officer despite this he also received a purple heart for rescuing a General from a crashed chopper under extremely heavy fire. He also ironically took many of drugs his farther designed this later effected him later life.

Not long after the war Klaus became sick with cancer of the lungs. Pulling strings in the government he managed to get his son a job in the growing Federal Disaster Assistance Administration (FDAA) were he went up the ranks relatively quickly helping deal with Hurricane Agnes in 1972 and in 1979 helped administrate the merging of the various other federal agency into FEMA: the Federal Insurance Administration, the National Fire Prevention and Control Administration, the National Weather Service Community Preparedness Program, the Federal Preparedness Agency of the General Services Administration and the Federal Disaster Assistance Administration activities from HUD. Civil defense responsibilities were also transferred to the new agency from the Defense Department’s Defense Civil Preparedness Agency.

Some time in 1980 Michel began planning his new Aryan Empire and started making contacts within terrorist organizations using his new found authority within FEMA to pull up files on various potential 'susceptibles’ as he called them, people he might be able to manipulate in the future. He was also able to pull up extra resources from the drugs trade although he didn’t have quite the amount of power necessary in order to fully exploit the drugs.

In 1981 Klaus dies at the age 78, Michel was at his bedside and these were his final words: “Michel, Michel you must calm down, be less aggressive or you will come to a bad end like me! Now I have something to show you, lift up the rug, underneath it should be some loose floorboards remove them and under the floorboards there should be my old briefcase, the code is 129372. It contain things…things I’m not proud of and neither should you! Now keep it safe Michel, it must not fall into the wrong hands, whatever you do…” Inside the case is data collected from concentration camps across Germany during World War 2 if Klaus had known what the information would be used for, He would never have mentioned it.

By 1991 Michel was now the unofficial head of FEMA (admin) and was able to misappropriating funds to set up training camps and with the fall of the Soviet Union weapons and expertise where easy to get hold of. Michel was also able to get hold of certain scientists who were in ‘precarious’ positions setting up research facilities by 1995 all over the world. Occasionally within already existing research facilities in order to disguise them. Michel continued from were his farther had left of kidnapping Alcoholics, prostitutes, the homeless, the insane and basically anyone who wouldn’t be missed.

Despite all this, it wasn’t enough; in order to get the millions of test subjects needed they had to expand, wiping out entire hamlets in various locations across the world… Although there were plenty of individuals who wouldn’t be missed it was becoming more difficult to remove them because of increasing media interest in the disappearances. In many respects it was easier to wipe out an entire secluded village without anybody noticing than sparsely located individuals as Stalin once said “one death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic”. In 2000 Michel accidentally comes across something huge. With his camps set up across the world training a new elite group of soldiers under his control, Michel when trying to continue his work of superhumans, when he accidentally creates a new virus entitled “G1”. G1 was so powerful, that 2 liters of it, when exposed to flames could take out a whole city. This new virus, G1 caused the insides of anyone that breathed it in to liquefy and die within hours. By 2004 the Next Generation (G2) was complete and they had ironed out many of the problems with the first the first Generation (G1). Such problems with G1 was spreading to quick, making it impossible to escape. Also it would eat threw any type of protective clothing and gas masks were useless. Filter systems to test the first version of G1 would fail and cause many members of the team to get sick. Although it was no where near full survivability out of the around 1,000,000 people who underwent treatment that had protective clothing and gas masks only about 750 survived, which although an improvement, was no where near the target. The goal was to make something that could be transported into a truck attached with a gas tanker with G2 in it and crash it into a building. After the virus would spread, Michel would send in his soldiers to take over the city. If Michel’s team knew what the virus was really for they would of stopped work immediately. Instead he told them it was to make a better version of a gas mask for United States troops and other protective Nuclear Biological and Chemical gear.

In 2002 Michel plan was starting to come together he was already starting to payback his depts. to the various organization with assistance and showing off his new invention G2. Michel also started to order small scale terrorism bush fires etc however the plan was almost totally unrivaled when he was diagnosed with cancer of the liver. So he decided to take a risk, start his war on the Free World as he called it, now. Planning begun right away and within 6 years, he would be ready to launch his first waves of attacks.

For several months Michel underwent the usual conditioning to prevent the spread of his cancer. What seemed to be a miracle for the world, Michel’s heart and kidney failed and his team had no choice but to put him in a comma to try and save his life. After many operations, transplants, and unfortunely for the world, the devil himself life was saved and Michel was taken out of his comma.

2004 and the G3 is produced this improved version would kill victims a lot quicker. G3 couldn’t make its way threw protective clothing and gas masks. G3 would actually delay its release and spread after being exposed to a source of fire. Michel’s wanted to cause something huge, and have people gather and within hours the virus would begin to spread and begin its killing.

Michel finally happy with his project, started to produce this new virus by gallons. He started to plan the day of Apocalypse as he called it, when the world would stop and ask “Are we going to die?” He loved this thought and could already smell the fear that would be soon be filling the world.

Michel began to get his armies ready.

From 2006 to 2007 Michel began his a reign of terror through out the world striking at the most precious thing to the world, its wallets. Small acts of terrisom were unleashed such as bombings on embassies, and could never be traced to anyone. The government mostly would blame an already well established and known terriost group. At the beginning of 2005 a UN team is sent in to deal with the new terrorist threat unknown to much of the world but eventually they were all killed the leader did confront Michel, and Michel simply shot him in the gut, no big speech except this “what did you think this was, a movie?” before shooting him in the head.

Then in 2006 United Nations completed a new unit, specially trained to deal with this sort of terrorism. World War 3 broke out.

The year 2008, it all began

. (Storyline still being updated!)

Long Story Short

During the World War 2 era Michael’s father was developing a virus to make super humans. He was working extensively with the Nazi’s. Michaels grew up and learned about his fathers experiments. Over time Michaels started to expand his knowledge in the science world working with very highly respectable companies. Getting a college degree all while secretly forming a terriost organization called fist of crimson. Michaels started to create the virus called G (1, 2, and 3) which is a virus that feeds and grows off fire and when breathed in eats your insides out, killing you very fast but painfully. Over time Michaels created the G3 virus, his last project. His terriost organization was one of the biggest and had some of the best military equipment around. The world still had no idea about

Michaels nor his scheme to release the G3 virus worldwide and cause the apocalypse. The United Nations produce a special ops organization of the best of the best around the world to secretly take out Fist of Crimson and prevent the G3 virus

Over time one of the UN Spec Op leads becomes a POW and learns a great deal how the Western World Governments actually help fund and cause the fourth coming apocalypse. After being released instead of being a POW, you become a rebel whose goal is to stop the G3 virus but alert the world of all the lies

Then the apocalypse comes
