Anarchy Online (AO) is a science fiction themed massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG). The first three expansion packs, Notum Wars, Shadowlands and Alien Invasion, have received high praise and won 20 international awards. Step almost 30,000 years into the future, to an age where common surgical implants and microscopic nano-bots can relieve most forms of human suffering... or transform any normal being into a weapon of destructive force. On the planet of Rubi-Ka, a battle rages between the haves and have-nots in a time when the clans seek liberation from the all-powerful Omni-Tek corporation in the name of justice, voluntarily if possible; from the barrel of a gun if necessary. The leaders of both sides are desperately seeking a solution that can stop the violence ravaging the planet, against a backdrop of betrayal, military raids and conniving political games, cyborg assassins and modified humans. You are 30.000 years into the future. You're in the age... of Anarchy Online.

RUBI-KA Rubi-Ka, the small and seemingly insignificant planet scorched under two suns, Animus and Amicus, plays host to the most difficult conflict humans have been through since the Emancipation War. It’s the classic David and Goliath story. The small, rebellious and in some respects insignificant, clans versus the giant, callous and powerful corporation. Their argument includes ideologies, human rights, technology, power, influence and greed. In the year 28702, the first humans landed on Rubi-Ka. It was a surveyor vessel, traveling space in search of planets with mining potential or colonization. Omni-Tek, along with other hyper corporations, had colonized space and is continuously looking for new and promising bodies in space. The decision to terraform and colonize this remote planet was made, and Omni-Tek signed a 1000 year long lease with the Interstellar Confederation of Corporations (ICC). Shortly thereafter, Omni-Tek announced the discovery of notum, an element that exists in its natural form only on Rubi-Ka. The announcement caused great controversy, especially after it concluded that the properties of notum could completely revolutionize nano-technology, making it infinitely more powerful. In addition to many new developments, Omni-Tek researched the human genome, resulting in three gene modified breeds designed with specific intentions; the atrox, opifex and nanomage. All in all, notum brought a fantastic new element to technology. But all was not good on Rubi-Ka. More and more often, complaints were filed against Omni-Tek working conditions, and it soon became clear that the conflict between the notum miners and their employer would only escalate. Loose coalitions of dissatisfied workers started calling themselves clans and began cooperating with other corporations, smuggling notum off the planet in an effort to backstab Omni-Tek. In the next few centuries, vast technologic progress was made; from soul transfer in what was quickly dubbed “insurance tech”, which allowed people on Rubi-Ka to instantly rise in a cloned body upon death, to the artificially constructed and floating archipelago of Jobe, home to scientists and researchers of meta-physics and nano-technology. Rubi-Ka with its notum was coveted by everyone in the galaxy, and while the lease time has been reduced, Omni-Tek still held the planet in its firm grip. With the rise of the clans, the corporation met with fierce resistance, though. Bloody and exhausting corporate and civil wars drained both sides in the fight, and no solution could be found, all parties thinking the situation is in a deadlock. That is, until the shocking news in September 29478 of another species, an alien breed, invading Rubi-Ka. The conflict was no longer simple bickering and smalltime wars between rebels and corporations; now it took to a whole different stage where it was species against species. No one was able to communicate with the aliens, and to this day, it is unknown why they came and what they want.

For centuries Omni-Tek corporation has been the number one hyper corporation in the universe. Not only have we provided new worlds for citizens to live, or some of the best and most used products for every purpose, we have also taken nanotechnology and created bold new technologies, for health, data and protection. With the discovery of Notum on the planet Rubi-ka (which Omni-Tek currently hold the lease of) we have lead the universe in new medicine, science, communication and defense. Omni-Tek stocks have done nothing but grow and allow for even further studies to keep us the leader in hyper corporations. Omni-Tek has always overcome and stood tall in the face of every threat, and we continue to do so now. Rebel Clans have tried to destroy our progress yet still we flourish. Hostile creatures from another world have invaded our planet, yet we still meet our stock holder quotas, and provide a safer Rubi-ka for our hard working employees. Our affiliates are our greatest asset on Rubi-ka, and in times such as these, we turn to them to ensure the Omni-Tek way. To ensure and protect our interests, Omni-Tek Rubi-ka has made new efforts to meet our affiliates, providing them with a proper Omni direction and goals. We strongly believe that it is through our affiliate’s co-operation with the direct omni-Tek departments; we can overcome and defeat any threat we may face as a corporation and as rightful land holders of Rubi-ka. We thank all Omni employees for their continued support of our operations, and want them to be able to trust that Omni-Tek is looking after them, just as they look after Omni-Tek Omni-Tek protects Omni-Tek succeeds Omni-Tek is watching Omni-Tek is your friend

The Council of Truth is a political discussion venue for and by the free clans of Rubi-Ka. Dating back more than a hundred years, the CoT attempts to serve as a platform for clans to talk, unite and voice the opinion of the member clans as a whole.
